Since everyone is saying I should get myself a strap. Let's hear it. Please note, I am not going to run out and buy a gun.

 

About me: I'm 6' tall. Relatively good shape. I wear a size large glove.

 

Shooting experience: .22s mostly. No licenses yet.

 

Uses: Home defense and target shooting and CCW at some point.

 

Well? Let's hear it. What should I get?

 

Revolver or Semi? Single or double action? Chambered in?

Check out the springfield xd's. Reasonably priced and available in sub compact if you decide to pack. Glocks are good functional weapons but with no external safety, maybe not the best 1st handgun. There have been some kaboom issues with the larger caliber glocks so research it further if you have interest, I know 9mm's are good to go. 9mm is a good 1st choice as it's not too pricey to shoot and the recoil is liberal-friendly.

 

Both the xd and springfield are double action only (doa) which means no exposed hammer and a stiffer trigger pull which is better for ccw and may be a little more difficult to shoot at first.

That was/is your question.

 

My answer was serious but don't worry even though it is fully automatic you won't need to get licensed.
