Finally 21! Looking to purchase first pistol.
I am looking to purchase my first pistol. Looking for good suggestions. I know I want something with bigger then a 9mm. I will use it when I bow hunt for protection against bear/cats as well as personal protection as I am about to enroll for Concealed Weapons class. Just seeing what people have and what they think? Thanks
You'll need 2 firearms...........one for bear/cats, and one for conceal carry................pretty hard to find one that will accomplish both situations.
For the bear/cats I would take my 44 Magnum (S&W Model 629 4"barel)........... For concealed carry I have a Ruger SP101 .357 Magnum with 3"inch barel.
Haha, a Glock 29sf (10mm) will accomplish both goals

I strongly suggest that you use the forum's search function, looking for "new gun" and "first gun" topics, as well as topics relating to your own preferred choices.

Note, also, that the 9mm is probably completely inadequate against bears—unless your desire is only to make the bear angry, as well as hungry.
Good luck being accurate with a bear charging.......
