Ok, for a first time shooter, that 9mm had a lot going on; slide flying back, recoil, shells flying out, I was a nervous as heck. Then I shot the 45 and it kicked so hard it about flew out of my hand. I had a blast shooting them and I know with practice you get used to the recoil and noise and shell casings busting out. I WANT A GUN now, of course the question of the day is what kind should I buy. I would want one that I wouldn't have to uprgrade in three months that would be good for home protection, and possibly to carry with a ccw, and that the wife could shoot in case of emergency. What brand, what size, and pistol or revolver.
I am thinking a revolver would be easier to maintain and maybe more reliable, what are your thoughts?
Also, where is a good place to buy a gun? I seen some places online, but it seems you have to have it sent to a local gun store and pick it up..... does this piss the local gun store owner off or is this just business as usual? Seems kinda strange to me.
Thanks in advance,
Gary
I'm sure it isn't the answer you're looking for, but this is the right answer:

You aren't ready to buy a gun. You need to keep going to the range, and renting guns to shoot for the day. Continue to work with your instructor, or any of the staff at the range and make sure they know you are new and you are interested in trying various guns out for size to determine which one you feel the most comfortable with.

When you are ready to buy a gun, not only will you not ask others what you should be buying, but when the time comes no one would be able to talk you out of the one you have chosen to buy for yourself.

Also, when the time comes, your question won't be formed as "which should I buy", but instead formed like, "I am thinking about buying the Springfield XDM 40 because I like the reliability and how it felt in my grip, but I am wondering if there is an equivalent in 45 cal?". See what I mean?

Here's a pic of the front. I cant get the tip of a butter knife in the gaps. the tolerances are very very tight. Its built in the USA 100% and is a family run company. I opted for the 5 gauge steel all around and the 5/16" door with an extra 3/16 plate welded to it on the inside. This is my 4th and final layer of security. If they get this far....i must be dead!!!!!

Unfortunately Metthem I gotta agree with Inferno.

If that was the first time you've ever shot a pistol, you have no business buying a gun at this time. You are just asking to hurt yourself, a family member or an innocent bystander. You need to continue doing what you did and go to a range that allows you to rent guns to try out and shoot and get more range time under your belt and try many different guns.

Also buying advice varies greatly from person to person. Everyone's hand is different, everyone has a different sense of what's comfortable. This isn't something that I or Inferno or anyone else can tell you as we don't know you, only you know you. Likewise, a gun that fits you might not fit your wife and vice versa. Go out and try as many guns as possible and when you find a couple that your like, then come on here and ask about those specific guns.

As where to buy, personally I prefer a local gun show. There are thousands of guns for you to handle and many different vendors to talk to and you can get the best price. Buying online can be a great way to buy too, but I only buy this way if it's a gun I know without a doubt I want and can't find at a gun show. And yes the ATF requires all new gun sales to be done through a FFL holder which is why if you buy online you have to send it to a dealer. I've yet to find a dealer that will refuse to do this or minds to do it and they would be crazy if they did. There will be a fee involved which normally ranges between $25-$50 per gun depending on the dealer.

Probably a flare. Call the local PD and let them decide what to do with it. Military EOD guys might come out and blow it up for you
