|I'm a 23 year old female, in college and the military who needs some advice on purchasing a handgun. I've had experience with a wide range of weapons, .50 cals, shotguns, sniper rifles, an old German luger, and some old loud heavy handguns. I want this gun for personal safety as well as target practice. I don't want anything that will make me too deaf to call 911 if I have to, and I don't want a big kick either. I already know that a .22 or a .25 is too small for me. Everytime I go to look at purchasing a firearm they try to push those two on me and I don't like them. I have a very small grip but I'm stromg enough to handle a gun safely and accurately. I want something reliable, accurate, and comfortable. It will get use.
Can anyone point me in the right direction?
