I make these suggestions because for a "range gun", I wouldn't choose a polymer frame. You may feel different, which is fine.

Personally, I wouldn't choose Taurus. Beyond that, almost every polymer option in the $400-800 range is a pretty great gun.

My CZ 75b (top), bought brand new. Added 3 mags (5 total) and wood grips. Total invested: Under $550.
I couldn't have said it better.

For a range gun in 9 mm I would go with the Beretta 92 FS. I never had one problem. But for plain old target shooting a 22 is the way to go.

CZ75B, Browning Hi-Power, S&W M&P, Beretta 92Fs, all mentioned above would make nice 9mm range/target/practice guns to start with, but......

Have ya heard about the life time warranty, no questions asked, takes a licking and keeps on shooting, inexpensive HI-Point 9mm?

+6 on the CZ. Though I would look at the CZ85 Combat with adjustable rear sight & overtravel adjustable trigger.
CZ 85 Combat 9mm 4.7in. DT 2 16RD CZ8591212
Another option is the EAA Witness series. For a range only, I would look at a Witness Match. I recently got coerced into a Witness match .45 by the Evil Gun Shop Guy Very nice gun. So far no downside. Makes a nice bowling pin gun. best part, Single stage match trigger, adjustable sights, etc. for under $600 (+ tax fees etc).
EAA Corp.- European American Armory Corporation
The less exotic versions are an even better deal. There was a Standard black model in the case next to mine with a .22 adapter kit included for $499 (+ tax fees etc.)

I'm sure you could find something way less than $800.00. I saw a used Springfield XD Compact in 9mm for around $375.00 not too long ago. This gun was hardly used and I thought a great price. Don't forget the Ruger lineup. I've got a P-85 that I've had for years and hundreds of rounds through it with absolutely no problems. Happy shopping!

Oh, I forgot the old Ruger pistols! Those make great inexpensive range guns and can be had for about $300 or cheaper if you really look.


This is the one of them: Ruger P95 9mm Blue, w Rail 15 round $300.00 SHIPS FREE
