If you can grip a glock well ? Pick a glock 21. maynot be cool or pretty but they tend to simple work well. And I am not a glock fan and would never carry one for CC BUT I own a G17 for home defence, good basic pistol and easy to shoot. A glock 21 is lighter loaded than many 1911's and thats with 13 +1 rounds of ammo with a 45 acp. With time behind the trigger any pistol will feel right. Don't let first impressions turn you off on a firearm. Also it seems more than a few 1911's can be more than picky with HP ammo so buy wisly.

I own a s&w sigma, glock 17, 2 kahrs 9mm, there My cc pistols. several 357's and a 44mag. The glock 17 is my wifes first choice and I have a sigma 40cal for around the house. None are really bad with time behind the trigger. See what you can shoot that any buddies or members near you have first.

The Beretta can be nice if you have really large hands. But for steel/alloy framed 9mms I would definitely prefer a CZ 75, Browning Hi-Power, or Sig P226/229. The CZ offers the most gun for the dollar of the bunch, and is sort of a nice cross between the 1911 and M9 platforms in my opinion.

The OP should really investigate the CZ 75b before dropping any cash.
