Being a gun owner myself (was shopping for another today) I of course gravitated to this thread.
There will be some very worthwhile suggestions offered. I would suggest as well you check the NRA website where are very good articles about guns and their proper use. Another good site is PACKING.ORG which covers much the same, and also has great info on the legalities of gun possession in your state.
Without attempting to endorse any particular brand I would however suggest you stay away from anything CHEAP. Inexpensive is not bad, but CHEAP could in the long run be dangerous.
I would also not be too swayed by large caliber weapons. It is far more important that you become proficient, confident and comfortable with whatever weapon you acquire.
Best of luck in your search.

I could dazzle you with stories of such applications of "justice" but I won't.
