Another really good one is a smith 686+

7 shots is better than 6 in any situation.

Value/Quality/Reliability, you can't go wrong with a Glock. I Glock 19 will do the job just fine

re: Want to buy a handgun soon


I just can't get onboard with suggesting a semi auto for somebody's first handgun.

It's gonna take a noob lots of time to learn how to clear jams quickly and all that other good stuff.

Revolver: point and pull the trigger. If it doesn't go off pull the trigger again.

And 15 is better than 7

Pistol > revolver in that case. Yes revolvers are the most reliable handgun out there, but compared to a glock, that reliability is moot point

re: Want to buy a handgun soon


I personally don't feel it's a moot point. Glocks jam too. Revolvers aren't without their shortfalls, but clearing a dud in a revolver consist of pulling the trigger again.

I'd never feel undergunned with 6 rouds

Get a revolver, preferably in .357 mag, then you can also shoot .38's to build up to the .357. Get 3 of the speed loaders for it and you are good to go. Like others have said a double action revolver is the best choice for a first time owner for defense. You really only have to aim and shoot. It is as simple as that.

I know, I'm just frickin around. Glocks suck.

There's not a more reliable gun than a revolver. FACT.

If its the guys first gun, he obviously isn't an expert. I would say a novice is better off with 15 rounds and a 1% chance of a jam than 6 rounds and a 0.0001% chance of failure. The odds of a novice needing more than 6 rounds is higher than the odds of a glock jamming IMO

They definitely jam. My flocks have jammed on me a handful of times :inb4uwerelimpwristing:

Downshift he doesn't necessarily need to get a revolver first. Ill bet you most people on this board had a semi as their first handgun.

Learning to clear jams and reloading us part of learning the weapon, but a newbie can screw up a revolver just as easily as a semi.

He needs to go shoot. He needs someone to run him through how to use his weapon of choice properly. That's what everyone should do IMO.

re: Want to buy a handgun soon


That's better but you need to target somebody specific and call them an idiot for their choice that does not exactly match yours
