Forgive me if I sound ignorant, but looking for some suggestions from the experienced gun owners here. My wife and I just started shooting at the local range - 0.22 revolver, 0.45 auto (1911 style), and a 0.44 magnum revolver (fun to shoot, but not for me). Now we are considering buying our own pistols (not looking at revolvers) but honestly don't know too much about gun manufacturers or models. We don't want to buy used, but don't want to break the bank either. Looking for something that can be used for both target/range shooting and home protection. We also want something easy to maintain, that doesn't need to be babied, must be accurate, and fun to shoot (of course!) My dad recommended Ruger and a friend I know said I couldn't go wrong with a Glock. Any suggestions would be highly appreciated.
