    I'm guessing handgun? Got a price range your looking at? If possible to rent, I would test out the following, Glocks, Walthers, XD's, Sig's, H&K's, if noone rents in your area just fondle them in a shop and see what feels good to you. If this is for CCW avoid the compensated models. Oh if you think you might be a wheelgun type of guy then look into the S&W's, Colt's, and Rugers in .357.

    Oh yeah, handgun indefinately. And no price range in perticular, although nothing deluxe. I was actually thinking about getting a Sig, would you recommend that?

    Have you shot any Sig's or handled them? If it shoots good for you and feels right then get one.
    My cousin loves Sig's I think he's got just about every one of them, I've shot alot of them, I shoot them ok, there ergo's aren't to bad. I don't currently own one wouldn't have any objections to owning one but personally I like the ergo's better on a few other guns over the Sig, My personal preferences are compact glocks(G29 and G30) and Walther P99.

    Yeah, I've been a member of the local pistol club for about a month now.

    Still, I am new, and I do suck with the Sig, are there better options?

    Try out a glock or a XD. Even try a 1911 if you want :dunno: they are one of my favorite handguns to shoot. You can't go wrong trying out all the top brands, sig, glock, HK, Walther...

    Well, TBH, forget favourites, out of those listed, which would be the best fitting for someone of my (lack of) experience?

    Dunno, but the .50 BMG wheelgun would suck satans asshole to shoot. The one above has a freefloating hydraulic breech and barrel so it can absorb some of the recoil. Plus there is insane compensation in the barrel.

    ...and I'll bet that it still tries to tear your wrist off...

    Makes more sense than that 50BMG revolver, which looks almost like a 'shop job.
