Bet your mom would like the Bersa Thunder .380. Check that out. I second the Sccy (pronounced 'sky') for mom as well. For dad, Rock Island Armory is a good choice.

Have him check CDNN. Look at guns and check prices, then call them for inventory. Prices are pretty good. Call them to buy and they ship to your local gun store where you do paperwork and background check. I've done it several times.

I have the XD 9 subcompact and the P07. The P07 is a little rough around the edges but its a hell of a pistol. Your dad may like it but its gonna be rough on moms hands. XD would be perfect for both.

Well Dad decided to get a Beretta 92FS. Now moms gotta get a gun. What do y'all think about the 92fs? I've never shot one.

CDNN caims to have 95% of the stuff in inventory. The truth is 95% of the stuff is not in inventory. Lots of stuff is blemished. They have great prices on high end shotguns. I have yet to see one that I would have accepted. People still buy these blemished goods and are happy with them. A gun club I shoot at does free FFLs for members. I have seen a lot of damaged goods come from CDNN. The purchaser accepted the gun because it was about the same price as a used gun. I would rather have an unblemished well cared for used gun.

The problem with the Beratta is you don't get a fair shake in run and gun games. I have the same problem with my P95. No one carries either gun with the decocker or safety engaged. Yet safety officers insist you shoot the match with the safety engaged. People that hang around ranges know about this issue. In turn, they buy guns that don't cause problems. The rules state that SA/DA guns with the safety/decocker is on the slide it is the shooters choice to use the safety/decocker. The 1911 is it's own class and has it's own rules.

I have had the opportunity to shoot many 9mm semi handguns in the past year or so (M&P, SR9, XD9, Stoeger Cougar....), and the one that put the biggest smile on my face was the Stoeger Cougar. This gun has a much lighter recoil then any other 9mm that I have fired. It is "spot-on" accurate, and absolutely no FTF or FTE. For me, this was the winner of all that I have tried.

My advice is to try as many different handguns you can, everyone has a different "feel" for these guns. Some just feel right, while others don't feel right at all in the hand.
