The commonest mistake beginners make is to buy into the "big gun" idea that nothing smaller than a .454 is "enough" for a handgun. The "big gun" promoters tout those monstrous guns with bone-breaking recoil and earth-shaking noise and newbies too often believe nothing less is a "real he-man's gun".

So if the newbie is not completely turned off on shooting, he can't hit a barn at 10 feet, has quivering hands and a permanent shell shocked expression, but is convinced any less gun is not worthy of being used by a "real he-man". Sad.

Believe it or not, subjecting your bones and muscles, not to mention ears and eyes, to brutal punishment and calling it fun is not being a real man - it is being a real idiot.
