Charged up about your new gun? You must be! However, choosing your first firearm can be an overwhelming and energy-sapping experience, especially when you lack a reference list.
Well, I’m here to make your life easier as I’ve done all the research (and legwork) and created quite a decent list. The ones I have compiled are all 9mm guns. Disappointed? Well, don’t be.
Yes, they don’t quite match up to a .357 magnum or a 10mm, but my 9mm guns are easy to use and maintain. You won’t burn a hole in your pocket to get one either. Here we go.
Springfield XDM (9mm)
I find this a great first firearm as with its interchangeable strap, it fits into my hands easily. The grasp slide serrations help me get a strong grip on the gun.
Features like the striker status indicator and the loaded chamber indicator make the gun ideal for beginners. It also comes with triple safety guards that make the gun even safer to use.
Smith & Wesson M&P 9mm
I find this handgun one of a kind as I can use it comfortably with both my hands. As a new user, you want your first gun to be light. The Smith & Wesson M & P 9 is just that. I love the ergonomic design that makes it easy to use.
It’s also durable and smooth to handle. The gun is designed to law enforcement and security personnel. So, they’re safe and accurate.
Kahr CW9 (9mm)
This one is just right as a first firearm as it has a firm grip which makes it easy to handle. I find the mechanics user friendly and the firearm gives me no trouble at all. I have never seen the gun get jammed while using it.
So, it’s safe to use. Another added advantage is the firearm being easy to conceal. I found it ideal as a first gun as it’s a striker fired pistol.
Ruger LCR 9mm
This double-action gun has a classic finish. I feel it’s a good first firearm as it can hold only five rounds. That’s why the gun is a good buy for those looking to practice a bit.
Its shorter range makes it a good choice for beginners who are yet to graduate as proficient marksmen. This firearm comes loaded with tiny metal pieces that clip to the base of the 9mm rounds.
Glock 43 (9mm Luger)
This firearm holds just six rounds at a time and is a good first firearm. It has a beavertail and I find it especially appealing as it’s a single stack pistol and semi-automatic.
The magazine can be easily detached. It also has a reversible release button. I also found the gun easy to dismantle.
Ready For Your First Gun
I’m sure that you’ve finally found your first gun. All the guns on my list are easy to handle and safe to use – but deliver an impressive performance. They are nothing fancy and are very basic. Yes basic, and sticking to the basics is a wise thing to do when you’re learning how to use a gun. You’re now good to go!
