I'd have to chime in with what has already been mentioned several times, the Ruger SR9 and SR9C pistols. My father-in-law owns both and has probably 1500 plus rounds through the SR9C in both range practice and in IDPA competition and the SR9 made it's first appearance in January's match and ran like a top; pretty good for a gun that came out of the box, was cleaned and lubed and then put straight into the mix.

If you can increase the $$$ a few, the CZ75 is a phenomenal gun. But about the time you get to the $550 mark you've hit Gen3 Glocks and the S&W M&P autos both of which I'm a huge fan and supporter of.

I have the Sub compact in 9mm and the full size in 45 ACP both have functioned flawlessly.
Outwardly they look similar but interestingly the 45 ACP has a rotating bolt and the 9mm does not.
just to clarify, i think that is based on model <full size vs compact> and not caliber if my mind remembers correctly

Smith & Wesson Model 5906.



Love it. Small, packs a punch, and straight as an arrow.




Or my personal favorite the Baby Desert Eagle II



Damnit I love this gun

SR9C is a great gun...bought one for my sister as her first gun because I wanted her to have something with a manual safety. I was really shocked at how well this gun shot and would definitely own one.

I have to say the Glock is my favorite 9mm...especially at my LEO price which keeps it well under 500.
