So, I have shot rifles all of my life but have never owned a pistol. My wife has never shot a gun, but is a 6 ft. tall Texas woman. We have been talking about getting a gun for some range shooting and home defense. I wanted a smaller semi-auto, maybe a 9mm. But, the other day we wandered into a local pawn shop and came across a pair of small Tauruses: a black 738 and a pink 732. My wife fell in love with the pink one and I thought the black one looked decent if a bit small. Hoping the shop might cut me a deal on the pair I am pretty interested. Unfortunately, I do not really know much about semi-autos and have never even heard of Taurus before. So, what do you think? OK guns for semi-auto beginners, or should we look elsewhere?
