Or at least it didn't seem to be as balanced :-/

Before you buy a range lizard be sure to try a Browning Hi-Power in 9mm.

It's a tad heavy for carry but if you want to run Mozambique drills,

there is no better than the "King of 9's"!



I share your taste in pocket revolvers,



...but you owe it to yourself to checkout my choice of pure range fun/pleasure.

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!

I also highly recommend the cz 75. I like the full size one so much that I'm thinking of getting the compact version-- for no good reason other than I want it.

If you like the Taurus check out the Beretta 92, the Taurus is basically a clone of the Beretta. I have a Beretta in 40 cal and I like it, they do have a chunky grip though that some don't care for, but I like it, and it's easy to take apart too. The military uses the M9, the 92 is pretty much the same gun.

I LOVE the looks of the Beretta and have read awesome things about it, however, it's hard to find someone that will rent/loan me one to shoot. Hard to want to buy something I haven't tried. It is sure one of the prettiest ones I've seen though.

How much do you have to spend ? No budget - Sig & HK are excellent. Mid range: I own an XDM 9 but if I had to do it again, the SW M&P line is worth a 2nd look. Police trade ins can be a good value as many police don't fire beyond mandatory qualification. Walther just reworked their trigger and overhauled their pistol trying to make inroads in American markets - worth a look.

I'm not a Glock fan and I w stay away from Taurus.

For plinktastic fun, you can get a 32 round extended mag for the p95. Believe me when I tell you it is a hoot.

I have recently purchased a Walther PPQ 9mm and I love that weapon. The trigger is very short but extremely smooth. Not to mention one of the best damn looking sidearms I have ever seen!

Very nice Walther' my husband was actually looking at that one for himself.

Gonzilla: I'm trying to stay in the $500-$600 range.
