    Hi JF2

    If you want a fun to shoot gun buy the 9MM. If you want to put Bear and or Bad Guys on the ground buy the .40S&W.

    I have both and prefer my 9MM for fun but shoot the XD40 a bunch so if I ever need to I can hit something with it.

    Enjoy.

    Thanks!
    I find the 9mm Luger and .45ACP much more enjoyable to shoot than the .40S&W.

    I would never depend on anything that doesn't at least end in "Magnum" or have a 16" barrel for bear. I hear bear get mighty upset when anemic pistol rounds are fired at them.

    First gun

    Well, whenever anyone asks me in person what to get for his/her first gun,
    I recommend a .22 because the ammo is cheap and recoil is usually
    manageable. Rugers, either revolver or semi-auto, are very good low
    cost/high qualilty guns.

    On the other hand, I do not recommend a Walther PPK, PPK/s or PPK/S-1 to
    anyone who does not have any experience with semi-auto handguns.
    These are definately not first timer guns. The caliber is small (.380acp aka
    9mm Kurtz) but the guns are so small that recoil is noticable.

    So, get her a 22 rim fire and let her shoot the heck out of it. Then let her
    move up to a center fire is she wishes.

    Good luck, have fun, and be safe!
