    Okie newbie

    Hello all, great forum!

    I am glad I got the alert "no more lurking you must join". Wealth of info here. Looking to get my second "first" handgun. No hand me down.

    Thinking semi-auto over revolver. Definitely want 9mm or .38 since I plan on plinking in addition to general home safety and I don't want to make excuses ammo is too costly.

    Thanks to this forum, I think I have it narrowed down:

    If I go revolver:

    S&W Model 67 or 67 Comp (if I find a deal)
    S&W Model 315 Nightguard

    Semi-auto's on my list:

    XDm 9mm
    Walther P99 9mm
    HK USP 9mm. (probably overkill for me and the price "ouch")


    Really looking for a nice blend of reliability and accuracy in a package my wife and 9 year old son are not afraid to shoot at the range with. Low recoil claim with USP is appealing.

    I have not shot or even held any of these yet.

    Thanks for reading!
