Re: Best Gun for Beginner/Female
Mouse guns...and caliber choice...
It's probably the most discussed topic
on any and all gun forums.
Any reliable gun is better than no gun.
Many bad guys are usually that...guys.
If a female that knows how to confidently
handle a firearm, and has to pull it out for
protection, most of them bad 'guys' will most
likely freak anyway.
Generally speaking, and general consensus....
nothing smaller than a 9mm for self-defense use.
Many still use a .380acp and feel comfortable, as
they are easy to handle. In fact, one of the most ...
if not 'the' most reliable .380 semi-auto is a Bersa
Thunder .380 and slightly larger than a mouse gun,
still very concealable and not expensive [except ammo].
A revolver is still my recommendation for most that
are new to firearms. Simplicity in all areas.
Everyone has a unique feel for recoil....no matter the
persons size or gender.
Before you purchase any gun, do your best to go hold
and touch as many as you can at gun stores. This in
itself, will give you a great direction in 'feeling'
what fits you best...in gun size....
Go shoot your friend's guns...provided they are not
monster hand cannons.....
Indoor shooting ranges rent a variety of handguns.....
and you can shoot many sizes and calibers that way.
