    Hello from Atlanta Ga

    I'm new to forum and geting ready to buy a gun. I have been doing resurch and as of now I really would like to buy a kahr cm9 but to small to be a good starter gun. So next would be my next is the cw9 but when I went to buy it I was showin the Ruger SR9c witch I have also been looking at. witch after a lot of thought I think is a better chose to start with. The fact that it come with a 9 and a 15 round mag is proble better for the rang witch is where a new shoter should be! So my thought is buy the SR9c learn to shot and then get my CCL then get the CM9 for DC. I really was also thinking to do it all in the .40 area. How much more kick and is the price of amo compared to the 9mm. So what is are your guys thoughts. I'm 5,3 and a 135lbs so a sub compact fits my hands well. I'm going to my first gun class at the end of the month. They have guns that they will let me use but they are all full size. Should I buy thegun first and use that at the class of buy after the class.

    First a Ruger is a quality firearm and a good choice, However I personally think you should wait and purchase your first firearm after you have taken some classes and gained some knowledge and experience, then you can refine your choices and maybe get a better fit for your specific needs...JJ

    I'd second this suggestion (and also the opinion of Rugers, in general).

    .40 caliber ammo is about 40%-50% more than 9mm ammo; I buy both fairly regularly. For this reason alone I'd recommend a 9mm over a .40 for a new shooter.

    Weicome from the mountain top in NC. There are several good indoor ranges that you could rent and try out your choices and get training classes in your area. I recommend you spend the time and money there first then you will make a better choice for yourself.

    Welcome from your neighboring state, Alabama. Oh and you can't go wrong with a ruger I've only owned about 7 and have never been disappointed with one.
