Hey all, I want to state at the beginning I'm a life long firearm enthusiast and sportsman, so we can skip the gun safety lectures. My brother's birthday is coming up in a few moths and I'd like to get him a handgun for a variety of reasons. He's come shooting with us on a number of occasions but doesn't have a ton of experience. I want to get some feedback from people that actually own the various models to help me narrow it down. Here are my needs: An autopistol, .380 or 9mm, something well made and reliable, accurate in the 5-12 yard range, ambidextrous (for a lefty), easy to disassemble, easy to shoot, fun to shoot, soft recoil, easily managed by a relative newbie, and appropriate for CCW (my brother has flirted with the idea a few times). It must also have a 10 round capacity or less (ideally the original capacity, not a 10 round mag in a 15 round gun). I was originally leaning toward the Glock 42 and still am. I'm only really worried about the recoil on it but it seems pretty soft. I'm also considering the Glock 26 but I'm not sure about the ergonomics or the recoil of 9mm in such a small gun. Also the Sig P239 but I don't know how the controls are for a lefty and again the recoil concern. All things considered shootability and fun shooting are tops on the list. I'm not at all interested in micro nines with "tolerable" or "manageable" recoil. I'm trying to get my brother into the sport not scare him away from it. . I would just get him a .22 but God forbid it ever has to be used I think the zombies will laugh at stingers!
