If you are a beginner and want to choose a pistol, then at least you should understand some basic knowledge about pistols to help you choose the one that is more suitable for you.

1. Consider your personal defense needs.

Pistols are almost exclusively used for self-defense. So you need to think about why you need a pistol and know where you intend to carry it. And are you going to carry it with you all the time, or leave it at home? Or do you want something that deters people and acts as a crime deterrent, or something powerful enough to end a standoff violently? These decisions have a big impact on the size, shape, and type of pistol you choose. You also have to think hard about whether you can pull the trigger. It seems like a good idea to draw a gun to scare off criminals without firing a shot. Usually, however, guns escalate the situation, and if you can't fire the gun, things will get worse.

2. Find out how comfortable you are with aiming the gun.

Before buying a gun, you must know how comfortable you are with aiming the gun. With an unloaded gun, close your eyes, keep your finger next to the trigger, not on the trigger, aim the gun at a makeshift target, and point the gun in a safe direction. Then open your eyes and the sights should line up where you want them to be. It should be no more than a few inches from the center target. If you find your sights are too low, then you can try a lighter gun. If it's too high, you can choose heavier ones.

3. Bigger pistols get more accuracy and range.

Larger pistols are more accurate than smaller pistols, however, they are more difficult to conceal and carry, and the added weight may make it difficult for some people to aim and maneuver them. Most people will have more success shooting full-size pistols, as the recoil and fit generally result in a more comfortable shooting experience. But if you need to carry it around, choose a smaller pistol. Smaller pistols are easier to conceal and lighter to carry, but they sacrifice some power and accuracy. However, since they are smaller, they are usually easier to target.

4. When choosing a pistol, the bore size is as important as the size.

The caliber bullets you shoot will not vary evenly with the size of the gun. Each caliber has its own strengths and weaknesses, and you need to find the one that suits your needs. Beginners are better off using a smaller caliber. Smaller calibers mean less recoil, which in turn means faster and more accurate follow-up shots, as well as less energy and power. Large calibers do more damage per bullet, but are harder to squeeze multiple rounds out quickly. Revolvers are considered more reliable and simpler than semi-automatic pistols. Revolvers are easy to reload, aim and fire and have been a popular choice for decades. They are also easier to clean and maintain than most semi-automatic.
