9mm or .22 for first time female buyer?

Postby BrianB » Wed Sep 01, 2010 8:08 pm

Not sure this would be a waste of time or not since you were asking about canceling your registration. Anyways, a bit more info could really help us help you.

First, you do know that 9mm is not really considered a step down from 22?

Are the two of you wanting only one gun or do you plan on getting more in the future?

Is this yours, and his, first gun?

Why does he want you to get a 22?

What kind of budget do you have?

Hello and welcome to the forum! Our last two esteemed members pointed out some excellent considerations. I think the most important first consideration is, what are you going to use it for? Target practice, self defense or both? That will help us to make a more accurate recommendation. Let us know!

first time buyer or shooter? a 22 is always a good gun to have for practice and training. also the occasional attack squirrel!! I love my glock 26 9mm great weapon and in +P loads is great for home defense by anyone!!! yes I know it's not a 45 but what is? I also choose my 45 at times but with anything there is a time and place(also clothing) that dictates what I carry.

Confidence is more important than caliber, the only way to know is to try both, all that said, go big and don't look back.

Damn those squirrels, I hate them!

I think our original poster went bye bye.

I couldn't even find the original post....Might the intended purpose for the weapon be for 45 pound attack squirrels running in packs of 20 to 30??
