    I'm completely new to handguns , I'm looking at buying either the Glock20 or 20C. I'm just trying to be as much of a sponge as possible.

    Welcome to GT.

    If you are just looking for opinions, I'd like to get a 10mm Glock but it is down my list so hasn't happened yet. Got the 26 for a concealed carry gun, and the 17 for a range gun. Both of those in 9mm.

    I already have revolvers in .44mag and .357mag for hunting.

    For your first handgun you may want a less powerful caliber to get the hang of it and do a lot of target shooting, no?

    Welcome aboard fellow Michigander!
    A G19 is a great first choice. Shoot it, shoot it, shoot it........
    Before you now it you'll have a half dozen more Glocks.
