Newfag here. Sorry to bother but I've been wanting to get into this for a while and don't know where to start beyond not buying .22

A .22. There's a reason everyone recommends it. If you're too insecure to get a .22 for your first gun though, consider what you'll actually use your gun for, and that should tell you what you should get.

With that mindset, what's your budget?
If rich, buy deagle
If poor, buy hi-point

If you don't want a .22, get a .357 magnum revolver, so you can practice on cheaper .38 Special ammo. I would recommend a single-action (old West style cowboy peacemakers) like the Ruger New Model Super Blackhawk, a very good, solid design that's not too expensive. I found a Dan Wesson .357 CT6 double-action that I picked up for cheap. She's very nice and in excellent shape, but the long weighted 7.5" barrel weighs a ton.

If you want to start with a revolver, then also get a rifle to go with it, preferably in the same caliber. Such as a .357 Magnum lever-action rifle like the classic Winchester Model 1892 Carbine (designed by John Browning) or the more modern Marlin Model 1894.

Or get a good 9mm pistol and a 9mm plinker carbine, if you like automatics, such as a Ruger Security 9 or Glock 17 whose mags fit the Ruger PC9 Carbine.
