The Ruger is a good gun and though I have not had to deal with them I have been told their customer service is good as well. If you think you may want to go with a glock, xp, m&p or other such striker fired pistol make sure you handle them and feel the trigger pull and become familiar with the safety systems before you purchase, I for one prefer a exposed hammer and a safety which the P95 has both, also research your pricing before buying at the gun show, the P95 has a msrp of $399-$429 on Ruger's website, so you should be able to get one new for that or less, don't get taken for a ride!

You can get a vintage Browning Hi-Power in your price range.

If you're going to get a 9, get the "King of 9's"

Royal Tiger Imports
Belgian Made, Israeli Issue Used Browning Hi-Power
VGC - $399.95
EC - $499.95
LN - $549.95

FN Browning Hi Power 9x19. FFL REQUIRED

They go fast!

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!
