I am brand new to this world (used to shoot a lot as a kid many years ago). It seems like the 9mm is a good choice for me: not a lot of recoil on my bad shoulder, will fit my somewhat smaller than average hand, ammo less expensive than a .45, and not real complicated to teach myself how to take apart, clean, and reassemble.
I haven't the faintest idea how good of a deal this is. Just how good of a deal is this? I might buy some prior to buying my pistol if it's that great of a deal. I'm looking at the Beretta M9.
