First time gun buyer?

You might want to check out this site:
and go to the section choosing firearms. There's lots of good information there and on the rest of the site too.

A nitpicky point I'd take issue with is the statement 'a .22 is the safest gun'. Think long and hard about it and it doesn't make much sense.

A .22 IMhO is practically a necessity. Get one for practice and fun and get a heavier caliber for defense. But it's MUCH easier to learn with the .22 and transfer those skills to other guns. My personal recommendation is the same as Ozzieman - a Ruger Mark 2 or 3 or Ruger 22/45. For the bigger gun try a few more and make a choice that YOU are comfortable shooting.
