This is very true (well, perhaps pardoning the 2.7mm Colibri!!), and a corollary can be developed. The biggest mistake people make in choosing which first firearm to buy is getting too much gun. Further, see if you have an indoor rifle/pistol range in your area. They typically will have a variety of rentals to try, so you can get a feel of things, and will provide critical instuctions to first timers. Because many of these questions are far too subjective -- there's lots of props here for the polymer-frame guns, the Glocks and Sigs, which is deserved, but they have an entirely different feel from a solid-frame auto like the Taurus VM posted, or its progenitor, the Beretta 92, and this needs to be experienced. I still say .22, though. Regards, Huntsman Edited for clarity
