Please forgive the naivete of one who is new to the forum and new to the current world of firearms. I'm sure it's a common question, but my interest or rather renewed and recent interest in firearms has been limited to revolvers, of which I own 3. Now for the question; for a first time purchase, what semiauto would those or you with experience suggest? Although I just received my CCW (Nevada) it is not necessarily for carry, rather personal protection in general. I'm old school, and tend to shy away from they synthetics, but perhaps that thinking is ill founded. Thanks in advance for any advice.
