Best Handgun For Beginners

What is the best handgun for someone who is just getting into shooting and who wants to buy a gun? The best handgun for beginner shooters is a handgun that easy to load, easy to shoot, a handgun that fits your hand, has little to no recoil when you shoot, a handgun that allows you to practice your shooting skills while making you feel comfortable holding and shooting the gun.

Which Handgun Is Right For You?

Before we get into which handgun may be right for you, let’s discuss handgun calibers and which one may be right for you. There are over 320 handgun calibers in the marketplace which can be a little bit overwhelming, but for the sake of this conversation will be discussing just four handgun calibers. We will be looking at the .22, .380, 9mm and .45 caliber handguns.
