Range weapons aren't always the greatest way to judge on quality standpoint some ranges don't really care about there rentals. Plus you never know what dummy has handled them. For feel range rentals are great but don't let them be a quality judge cause you just don't know how many rounds have been put through them

American Tactical Imports? Hit and miss. I had one of their Commander models and had nothing but bad luck with it. The front post on the ejector broke; the extractor, which was far too soft, deformed and would not pick up the case rim; and the firing pin stop cracked. That was all before it got to 500 rounds of standard .45 230gr ball. Also, if you get the standard model (opposed to the enhanced), you will not find a standard sight set that will drop right in as the slide dovetail cut is not Colt spec (it is over by at least .020" on width). After replacing all the parts, I ended up trading it in on an SR1911 (which has been amazing).

CZ-75 P-07 can be found in that price range if you shop around a little. At first glance, I didn't think I would like it but it feels great in the hand and functions flawlessly.

For just an all around hard to beat handgun a Ruger Blackhawk with a 6.5" barrel chambered in 357 is very hard to beat. You can pick it up right out of the box and start hitting targets 35 to 40 yards away. I am talking about just standing up and shooting the gun, no bench, no assistance. Few guns on the market can compare to it's balance, especially after you add a houge monogrip.

If you are looking for concealment Rock Island makes some great 1911's and two 38 snub nosed revolvers. Only the Ruger P95 rivals the Rock Island line up for value.

Lots of people have problems with the P95 malfunctioning. The problem stems from the magazine release hanging up on the holster or some people hit it with their hand when firing the P95. You can file the magazine release down to a size that suits you or ruger will do it for you. The magazine release is meant to be filed down. The gun is sold as ambidextrous. You file the weak side down to just enough to allow the release to function. The strong side might need just a little taken off.

BTW if you check Bersa firearm ratings they get between four and five stars!!

I have a few of the Bersa full sized pistols. They are great, thus far functioning without flaw with any ammo. Had only 2 fail to extract out of 500 rounds federal 115gr ball ammo (sells for $13 per 50 rounds at my wal mart), no fail to feed. I've heard of the extractor hook failing, but that seems to be commonplace with newer guns of any brand (what gives?). Either way I'm a big fan of Bersa, and I wouldn't listen to anyone who says they're junk.

Seconded. The Witness is a great Italian copy of the CZ 75 that can be had in a casted steel frame, which I actually prefer over the casted alloy on CZ's. Economical, and scary accurate right out of the box.
