Best Handguns for New Shooters

For newer shooters, deciding on a firearm can be very overwhelming. Especially since the industry is constantly putting out something new. It’s almost like cell phones, as soon as one gun comes out, not long after there’s a newer gun. Couple that with the gun community consisting of very passionate fanboys, and now you have multiple opinions pulling you in every direction. Most people tend to offer suggestions based on their personal preferences or ideals. Needless to say, this can leave a newer shooter quite confused.

The most important thing to remember when choosing a firearm is that it’s specifically for you. This gun will be an extension of you; therefore, you need to enjoy whatever it is that you have. It needs to fit your hand and feel comfortable while handling or firing it. This is best discovered through the process of trial and error. Being able to handle and fire guns prior to buying is the best way to discover what works for and fits you best. To help, I’ve brought four guns to the table from four leading manufacturer’s in the gun industry. These brands are not only well known but well-engineered holding great reputations. Each one different from the other when it comes to size, grip and round count. One is even an entirely different platform. These four guns are not only a great starting point in your journey to gun ownership, they may just make that journey a bit shorter. Let’s check out my top picks: Best Handguns for New Shooters.

Glock 19 Gen5

SIG Sauer P365XL with ROMEO Zero Optic

Mossberg MC1sc

Kimber K6s DASA 3”

These guns are terrific options for any shooter. Remember, at the end of the day the only thing that matters is that you have a sound gun that is reliable and fits you well. A great fit will also bring enjoyment, and that is a very important key factor. If you don’t enjoy the gun, you’ll never take it out to train with it; and training is essential, not just for a new shooter but all shooters. Shooting is a perishable skill, so training must always be incorporated. With the right gun and proper training, you’ll be well on your way to the path of preparedness.
