Sig Mosquito (.22LR)
Heard this is a very picky gun ammo-wise,more so with the first generation, which jams frequently with ammo that the gun doesn't like. They say the new ones, which are the second generation, are much better. I've also seen users saying that once it breaks in it's not as picky and won't jam with some/all of the cheaper brands. Another thing I saw in this gun's favor was that it's fairly easy to breakdown/clean.
Ruger 22/45 (..22LR)
While looking into the Sig I saw everyone recommending Rugers right and left, with the only drawback to them being that they're heavier than their competitors but they're very reliable and accurate.(the SP101 was also recommended)
I don't know why, but my friend told me about this and it just really intrigues me and it looks to have fairly cheap ammo like .22LR. I hear this is a great pistol (as long as it's not the china version) and the good thing is I'd never feel like I'd have to "upsize" in the future.
9x19mm pistols would be also a consideration since they seem to have inexpensive ammo too. (I'd rather not go broke at range, learning how to handle my weapon...so no .500 revolvers please!)
If there's any other guns worth recommending to a first timer, I'd be interested in hearing them. I'm not interested in the Browning Buck Mark(.22LR) or the Walther P22 (.22LR) since my friends have them and I'd want something different, even though they come very well recommended too.
I'll be going to get my papers for my permit next week!
