Need help with first hand gun
I have never owned a handgun before, but i just bought a house and want one for home protection and for fun at the range. I'm not a very big guy, 5'6" 170lbs, So I don't want something I can't control, but I don't want something with no stopping power. I talked to a few guys and the concensus from them was a .40 would be good. I also want my fiancé to be able to handle it and she is about the same size. Ive been looking at the S&W M&P .40 and I love the feel. Are there others that would be good for someone my size or something maybe in a different caliber? I welcome all comments and recommendations.
