Handguns

Any recommendations?  Thinking Beretta or Glock.  

I think you should buy what you actually shoot best with.  I was determined to get a Glock the last time I bought a semi-automatic pistol.   But when I went and shot a bunch with friends, I found I liked the grip of the Springfield XDM better than the Glock and I shot better with it.  So I got that instead.   For some reason they sometimes run a couple dollars more than Glocks but whatever.  

Some ranges have guns you can use or ask friends to go shoot with you that have the type guns you are interested in......then buy what you shoot best with is my advice.    My brother in law gave me tons of poo for not getting the Glock because apparently their is a YUGE fanboy club or something.  I'd rather like what I shoot than be part of a fanboy club.

Yea, my wife is afraid shitless of guns so I want to taker her to range to teach her all about it.  I also hate going to shooting range and use their garbage.  Shooting range guns usually so terrible it feel like the gun will break after every clip lol

Seriously, if you want my input it's helpful to know what your plans with it are. Self defense in the home, concealed carry, target shooting, action leagues, etc.?

my wife didn't like when I first brought guns into the house either.  She got over it.  She still won't shoot though. 

what caliber you looking at?  do you have any handguns already?

Try Blackstone, they're a newer range/shop and seem to be pretty nice. I'm betting they'd have a nice selection of rental pistols. I agree with CRA. I actually like my Glock, and chose it over a Sig, which is what I originally wanted before I shot one. Buy what feels good in your hand and feels natural when you look down the barrel.

I think 9m is enough.  I got AR15 and Mossberg 590 but no handguns.

I guess I will swing by shooting range and ask to hold some guns.  I like my friend glock a lot.

Hyatt's Gun and Coin on Wilkinson Blvd is great as well. All of the guys there are really knowledgeable, but there's no range on premises.
