There is a crap ton of posts for people new to the forums or about "what gun should I get, I'm new to guns?!?". Really, you gotta learn more before you go out and buy one. The eagerness could lead to a bad purchase. Also you need to figure out what other needs you would demand from the gun besides home defense. Metal or polymer, hammer or striker, DA or SA, yadda yadda yadda. As far as good companies go, there are a lot of options out there: Springfield, S&W, Glock, Sig, Beretta, Ruger, etc. I'd personally stay away from the "money savers" like Hi Point and Taurus.

Do lots of research, go shoot a bunch, hold them all, and pick which ever one fits your needs best.. Most ranges and even some shops offer rentals and test firing, so you can get an idea of how they shoot. Gook luck brotha, let us know what you end up with!

Pretty much agree-
I venture to guess that among those that ask this question--
30% already know what they are going to buy-
30% can't think of anything else to ask-
20% honestly need opinions--
10% are in the "OMG if you have to ask" group--
10% are just to dumb to own a handgun--
10% are just bored & full of ****-------------

Get her dirty, then clean her so she starts to respect you. When her trust is complete, she will serve you well for a lifetime!

And the 92A1 isn't that much more, NIB.

I've got both, and nary a FTE or FTF yet.

Myself I prefer my Smith & Wesson model 59 9mm. I like it for a conceal carry weapon because I can have it on me and no one is able to see that I even have it on me. I am old school and I also own a Colt 1911 A1 and a Remington 1911 R1 and a few other good hand guns. Truthfully it is going to be hard to find a really good handgun in good shape for $500.00. I am not saying you can't but it will be hard to do. Remember you get what you pay for.
