It's hard to beat a S&W Sigma. They are $300. The trigger is too heavy for many, but you can easily replace the sear spring with a Wolff spring.

I have a couple in mind. Hopefully you can help point me in the right direction.

1. Ruger sr9 $398 @ buds
2. CZ P07 Duty $406 @ jetguns
3. Bersa Thunder Pro $348 @ jetguns
4. Taurus 24/7 oss $355 @ buds

I have held the rugerand the Taurus, and they both feel well balanced and comfortable, but have been unable to even find the other two in stock locally. What are your thoughts on these firearms, andare there any others i should look at?

Thanks for the input.

Look around the Internet and check out used SIG P6 (P225). A bunch of them were imported as trade-ins from the Geman police and these guns are still an excellent value.

Advanced Tactical is importing a Beretta 92 clone & I love mine
They might be a BIT more than $300 but well worth a look

I good conceal gun is the taurus pt709 slim, don't remember what I paid for it but it wasnt that much. Out of 700 rounds didn't jam once, it's double action also so if the round doesent go off you can retry it.

Well after 7 months, a new job, going back to college and a new baby, I have finally made a decision and will be purchasing shortly. I am going with the Stoeger Cougar in 9mm. The local bass pro had one and I checked it out. I was pleased to find that the grip feels just like a Beretta 92 since that is the gun I have the most range time with. Also, it was on sale and is a promo kit with 4 mags. I will post pics and range report when I can squeeze it into my crazy schedule.

I got my Ruger P95 for a net cost of $135 after trading in a hunting rifle I no longer used.
Sticker price of the P95 was $310 with two 15 round mags. Best bang for the buck, IMHO.
