Need guidence: Taurus? Bersa? Ruger.
Im activly looking for a compact 9mm for concealed carry. Being as my price range is 300-450 dollars I have 3 in mind. Ruger SR9c, Bersa/Firestorm 9mm compact, and Taurus 24/7 compact. The Ruger is a sure bet I know. But what about the taurus and bersa. I dont know anyone who has shot one let alone owned one. And since the Ruger is a little more expensive Id like to know a little more about my cheaper options. Other options are welcome, just keep them around $350.

I have a Taurus 24/7 Pro in 9MM and I;m very happy with it. Not a lot of ammo run through her, but a good shooter.

If it were my money and for your purpose, I'd go with the Ruger.

1. It is made in the USA
2. Steel slide, nylon frame
3. Slim architecture
4. Reliable

Dune pretty much summed it up.

I'd recommend the SR9c. Here's a report I did on one that I had.

Yea, ruger.
Thats what Ive seen and heard everywhere. But, do the Taurus and bersa stack up even close? I know they all have lifetime warranties. Ive had experience with the bersa gunsmiths in eastern PA and it took like a month to replace a sear and hammer. Which wasnt really too bad. Ive heard horrer stories about taurus's warranty service. Any more insight fellas? guess its not worth saving 50 bucks. I shoot quite alot so when i get it youll hear it.
