Re: Advice on first purchase
I'd go the other way. Get a 9mm now and do lots of target practice. With a 9mm, you're already worlds ahead of not having anything for home defense. Just keep a full magazine of Hydra Shocks and you're good to go. So start with a 9mm and blast away at paper targets. 9mm ammo is much cheaper than higher calibers. Once you are a seasoned shooter, get your a .45.
