I'm gonna be purchasing my 1st handgun in a couple months and my price range is about $400/$450. If anyone knows of a good handgun in that price range please do tell. I'm not interested in sub compact or concealable. Thanks
Ruger's SR9 and P95, Taurus 24/7, S&W sigma, used Springfield XD, Bersa's thunder 9mm, Firestorms 9mm are the pistols that I've been looking at to get. I've read a lot of bad reviews on SIGMA'S and TAURUS'S. If anyone has had any experience or owned one of the firearms named up top please share your input. Thank you for responding though.
I've had a couple of the 24/7's with no issues and a Bersa that I really enjoy. In a lot of cases it comes down to what fits your hand and your shooting style the best. Like I said I had no problems with the 24/7 I just can't get into the poly guns no matter how hard I try.
Keep up with the trends, avoid the fads, take your time and do work you can be proud of always
I owned a Taurus 24/7 G2 9mm as my first gun. Never had any issues with the gun. I put thousands of rounds in it with not a single mis fire or issue with the gun. I hear they have a life time warranty but never had to us their customer service so I can't comment on that. I eventually traded my gun for a sig mk25 but not because there was anything wrong with it.
I'll add my vote for the Bersa. The High Capacity (HC) version has 4.25" barrel & I guess would be considered full size, but the UC 9mm is not really what I'd call 'Ultra Compact' & it seems to balance in my hand a bit better. If you have large hands, you'd probably prefer the HC. The grips are actually the same size in circumference with the UC able to use the HC's 17 round mag, but it has the finger grooves in the front which gives it a different 'feel' & the HC grip is about 3/4" longer.
