Glad to hear your are starting out as a responsible gun owner. Training, practice, practice and more practice. Also critically important to keep your firearms secure. I second what others have recommended about shotguns for HOME defense. Easy to use and easy to learn. Pistols are hard to shoot and require a great deal of training and practice. A .22 pistol makes for great affordable training so you don't go broke training with your PDW. It doesn't matter what you buy if you can't hit the target. Another plus for the shotgun vs. a semiautomatic rifle.I am going to have to take a class, as is my wife
Be safe and please take this very seriously. Mistakes in handling firearms can be lethal. Shooting is the only sport I know of where you can never make a mistake. Handle every firearm as if it is loaded. Keep your finger off the trigger until the sights are on the target. Take your finger off the trigger before you take the sights off the target. Don't mean to nag but I want you to be safe.
Did I mention a shotgun was a better idea than a semiautomatic rifle?
