What kind of gun do you have for yourself IF you have one? I just became a stay at home mom and my husband wants me to learn how to use a gun for self defense but all of the guns he owns are pretty big and I'm afraid to mess with them. I want to buy my own handgun but wasn't sure which type would be good for me. I was looking at the taurus 380. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

EDIT- Also can you add photos and info on how they shoot? How much kick, how accurate, etc.? Thank you!

*Update- So ladies I did buy a gun! I got a 45 acp springfield. I will try to post pics in a bit. I have a video of me shooting it on FB but not sure how to put it here.*

We just got our permits.  Once we get them in, we're going to go practice.  I won't own a gun without being comfortable using it.  Go to a gun range, rent various types to find out what you're comfortable shooting and carrying.

Do they have a lot of kick???? Pics would also be really appreciated. I have NEVER shot a gun and to be honest I'm scared to lol but I have been doing a lot of research and my husband is right I really do need to learn. I'm afraid to like smack myself in the face with it when I shoot it haha

just bought a springfield armory dx 9mm with a 4" barrel.  it's a beautiful piece, and fits perfectly in my hand.

my suggestion would be to do some research into what meets your criteria, and then go to the range and see which of those feels best in your hand.  you can rent a pretty big variety of manufacturers and models.

I have a Taurus 22 and a number of shotguns and rifles.





I just sold my 380 back to my grandfather. ( he bought it for me. So when he asked me if I would sell it. So he could have. Matched pair I agreed) and we are now looking for a 9mm.





The 380 was great. But the price of the ammo was very high. So it was just sitting there. ( I use the .22 for target and personal carry)

Eta. I didn't have the Taurus 380 but a 380
