Re: Best Gun for Beginner/Female
Go to your local gunshop and ask to hold several guns. Might want to try a small revolver. Heft several/many. Dont get over a 9 mm or a 38 for recoil reasons. Maybe the gunclub you choose will have a range and you could shoot your choice, Better yet ask if the have a 'ladies night' for pistol shooting.
If so, go on that night and ask some shooters to shoot their guns.
Second is like the second suggestion above. Find out what night your local gun club has 'pistol night'.. men or women.
Go and ask to shoot. Anyone that shows up at our club always gets to shoot a few dozen shots, if they want that many.
Do NOT shoot a 'cannon'--357 mag or some such. You will never want to shoot again. Even try to start with a 22.. Dont let someone else select the gun for you-YOU select it. Yopu will be shooting it. Practice, practice and then some more.
PS I didnt see all those responses. It looks like Im right on.
