+1, I love my 92FS, might be unoriginal and overdone in films but is accurate, easy to shoot well and goes boom every time I pull the trigger. With a MTBF of 20k rounds, you can't go wrong.

Sig makes quality pieces, so does HK.

wrong, its not about boy or girl, its about doing it the right way regardless. nothing turns me on more with a gun in a womens hand and she is holding it the right way.

or she is just holding it..or was it the outfit? oh fuck i dont know anymore

it just takes the right instilled habits and from there is doesnt matter what type of firearm you go to shot.

semi pistol
revolver
rifle,semi,bolt,single shot.

bla bla bla.


there is PLENTY OF BAD ASS WOMEN i know that can handle a firearms, so that has no bearing.

I'd stick with something that has a safety until you can get some trigger discipline/formal training.

Better pistols can be had for that price too.
