I would suggest the new Taurus 24/7 G2 series.. They are available in full frame and compact models, available chambered in 9mm, .40s&w, or .45 acp... I recently got the .45 compact and I'm very satisfied with it so far. It's a da/sa pistol, meaning you can rack the slide ad chamber a round but your striker will not be cocked, once you fire your first round( which will have a longer kinda heavy trigger pull) the trigger will still be depressed when the blowback chambers another round and you will be able to fire the rest of your magazine in single action(a much shorter and manageable trigger pull). It's a safety feature on the gun to prevent accidental firing, along with a thumb safety, firing pin block, and double trigger system. The gin has a good design, comfortable to hold and very manageable recoil. Priced between $450-$500 it's a good buy and comes with 2 magazines adjustable sights, a speed loader and 2 keys to lock the gun or adjust the sights( full frame model comes with interchangeable back straps).. All on all it's definitely worth looking into and a great buy for the price in my opinion.
