Best handgun for around 300 to 400 bucks
 
Which gun is worth the money besides a glock

SSGN_Doc 10-26-2012 05:17 AM

If you get into used guns then there are several options. Police trade in Berettas, Smith and Wessons, occasionally foreign Police Sigs, etc. Then there would be the same guns just on the regular used market. Ruger has some in that price range.

Is the ruger p95 in the same catergory as the glock 17 as in accuracy and realiblilty

I went shooting last week with a friend that has a p95 and I was not impressed. More malfunctions that I care to count. I never had a fail to feed or eject when I was shooting it but he had a bunch. And then there were a few times the slide didn't hold open after last round. Maybe it was him, or maybe he just got a bad gun...I don't know. But it was bad enough I wouldn't want one.

Taurus PT92 (9mm 17rd copy of the 92FS) or Bersa Pro 9mm or 40. Both around $400. Similar design. If you're looking for a striker pistol then the S&W Sigma is a steal at around $300, it's nearly an exact copy of the glock, but heavy trigger.

Ruger SR series....SR9c is a great gun & right around $400

I always have to mention the Sig Sauer SP2022 in either 40 or 9mm can be had just for a hair over $400.

There are so many variables that are not being accounted for though. For example, what size round are you looking for? What type of firing mech? Metal or poly? New or used? I could go on for awhile, but long story short, certain features/attributes will cost more than others.

Assuming you are looking for one of the "big 3", there are quite a few to choose from. If you don't know this already, that is a very very common price range for most people.

All I can tell you, just from personal experience, avoid Taurus, Bertha, Hi Point and any other deal that may seem too good to be true (because 9 times out of 10 it is).

Let us know more about what you're looking for so we could better assist you. :D

I'd agree with that concerning Taurus' new designs, but the PT92 & PT100 are an exception. It's actually more reliable than the Beretta 92FS. For the price, it's one of the best gun deals of the century IMO. Accurate, reliable and hi capacity 9mm (or 40cal). Everything I wanted in a pistol. They also have some decent revolvers. Just stay away from the 24/7 and newer striker Taurus guns.

And Bersa's are too good to be true. I love mine.

I have a Taurus pt-92 and absolutely love it. I used to have a sigma chambered in .40 and it was alright. I like the single/double action way better then the dao. The new sigmas supposedly have a lighter trigger pull but I haven't shot one yet
