which handgun should i buy?
Hello everyone im new to the fourm here and i thought id use this as and intro and question. My name is adam, im not new to firearms, iv been hunting and target shooting for a couple of years now but i am relatively new to handguns. Iv got the chance to shoot a friend of mines kimber krimson carry II, berretta 92fs and his 44 magnum. Im deffinitly not a revolver man and after searching a couple of handguns iv come down to a couple that im thinking of purchasing, but i hopeing all of your knowledge can help me narrow it down. My picks right now are a Makarov(not sure which kind i should get), Walther ppks, Browning HP, 1911 springfeild GI, or a Sig p220 series.
So help me out guys

I'd pass on the Mak as a first gun, better to go with something that will have some manufacturers support and easier to find ammo...pending on caliber of course.

The Brownings are nice guns, but you need to try on before you buy one and see if you get hammer bite.
Aside from ammo costs, the Springfield 1911s are not bad options, but I would advise a MILSPEC over a GI model for the better sights.
The SIG 220 is a fine weapon, but also take a look at the 226 in 9mm, more shots, ammo costs less and will most likely have less felt recoil than the 220....are you right or left handed? If you are a lefty, I would avoid the Sig unless it is a DAK model.
