Hey all. I am 18, so obviously won't be purchasing a handgun anytime soon...but ya'll got me interested and would like to eventually get into handguns. I have shot rifles and shotguns quite a bit, and my dad's Beretta handgun once, so I have a basic knowledge of guns in general. What would be a good pistol to start off with to learn about them, durable, and not too expensive? Thanks in advance.

Depending on your state laws, if you can get someone to give you a pistol as a gift, you won't have to "purchase" it.

I'd start with something like a P-22, shoots cheap, has a manual of arms similar to it's bigger brothers, looks cool, and is fun to shoot. You can shoot a hell of a lot for $10.00, and the more you shoot, the better you get! :)

i don’t want to jack this thread, but how big of a difference is there in cost between 22, 9mm, 40, 44, and 45.

just outa curiosity. i know of coarse who you buy from and what kind of ammo you buy has a HUGE bearing on this, im looking for something rough.

22 is the cheapest. 1k rounds or about 10 bucks

9mm is about 99 bucks per 1k

Add about 15- 20 per thousand for 40S&W

Add another 15 on top of teh 40 for 45acp

And cheap 44 mag is 15 bucks a box for 50 but more like 20 most of the time.

9mm is your cheapest self defense gun to buy and shoot.

I would say start off with a .22 its usually the best to start off with and learn to shoot with. I'd say get either a whalter p22 or a ruger mkIII.
