    You'll get plenty of recommendations here as this is a great, helpful bunch of folks and very diverse in what they (we) own and like.
    My nightstand (and duty weapon) is S&W's full size .40 caliber M&P - which of course I recommend.

    Welcome f rom South Carolina.
    Sometimes in life you have to stand your ground. It's a hard lesson to learn and even most adults don't get it, but in the end only I can be responsible for my life. If faced with any type of adversity, only I can overcome it. Waiting for someone else to take responsibility is a long fruitless wait.

    If loose gun laws are good for criminals why do criminals support gun control?

    Welcome!

    I don't own a handgun yet either. My boyfriend set me up an account on here and now I'm addicted. I check it at least twice a day lol. I had the same question of what am I doing on here. But now i'm SSOO glad I am! Hope you enjoy the forum as much as I have.

    Welcome !!!

    Don't buy anything until you try it !!!
    I am partial to Glocks, however I know some people hate the grip angle.
    My best gun might be the worse for you, so before you shed a few hundreds, go to a range that rents what you are considering, talk to guys there, and try the guns (more than 2-3 rounds).

    Finding and buying the pistol is only a small part; now you have to train, not only for proficiency with your sidearm, but also to develop the proper mindset.
    If you cannot go to one of the training course, get a little book called"Principles of Self-Defense" by Col. Jeff Cooper. You will not regret it.
    The first rule of a gunfight: "Don't be there !"
    The second rule: "Bring enough gun"
