plus 1 for the sr9c!! love mine
I have been a silent witness
to all of America's finest hours.
But my finest hour comes
when I am torn into strips and used as bandages
for my wounded comrades on the battlefield,
When I fly at half-mast to honor my soldiers,
Or when I lie in the trembling arms
of a grieving mother
at the graveside of her fallen son.

I bought a Taurus Millenium Pro PT111 Gen 2 in 2006 that hasn't given me any trouble other than the break in period where the slide occasionally wouldn't quite chamber a round here and there. After a couple hundred rounds that cleared up and I have no real complaints. Decent pistol if you don't mind the DAO trigger. It has the older three dot sights instead of today's Heinies and the price was right at $269 back then.

But even though I have two Tauruses that haven't given me trouble I hate to recommend Taurus since many others have had trouble. I'd look at the SR9 since today there isn't much difference in price and you can expect good things from Ruger.
The biggest issue with assembling an AR isn't so much getting the parts together right - it's getting the right parts together.

I have an sr9c. I think it is a very good gun. I have never had a problem with mine. I will have to say you can't go wrong with the sr9c.

Between the two, I'd opt for the Ruger (I have). But if you can spend a bit more, look into a Sig. Owning various makes, folks I teach to shoot tend to gravitate to a Sig for the feel and ease of shooting.
