need more info

just for target, or for protection too? If its just target, go with a .22 (ammo is cheap, and they're easy to shoot)

You always start with a 22. NRA and any place you go to learn how to teach someone about firearms you always start with the fundamentions and build from there. I use to teach basic pistol.

target shooting

I agree with fordvg,
.22's are a great tool for fundamentals, as are air pistols. Because the projectile is moving slower, they are less forgiving. If you are honest with yourself and can evaluate your own mistakes correctly, you will improve your shooting better with these calibers.

Stephanie,
Do you want to shoot pistol or rifle?
