I have a Glock 27, Taurus PT145, and a S&W SIGMA9VE. all are fantastic carry pieces. It depends mostly on your cash situation. To me 500 for a Glock is about correct, it its brand new. you cant go wrong with a Glock. You can get a Millenium Pro from Taurus fro 350 ~ 400, and personally i love mine. Its had around 2000 rds through it and has FTF once. Coincidentally those are about the same numbers for my Glock and my S&W.

Because I can't conceal and carry yet, It would be a home defense/ fun range gun. But my hope is that I would be proficient enough by the time I get conceal and carry to feel fully comfortable carrying it around.

Well personally i carry a Glock 27, which is a .40S&W. however i also have a .357SIG barrel for it and sometime i will carry the Glock loaded with .357SIG. In case i feel the need to shoot through car doors or what ever...

Try the S&W Sigma, your best bang for the buck as a first handgun.



S&W SW9VE 9mm Stainless for Sale at Buds Gun Shop $344.00

If you're anything like us, and you being here indicates you are, this won't be your only handgun purchase.

If you do the Sigma, you may want to reduce the trigger pull be removing one of the springs on the assembly. My Sigma had what must have been a 10lb trigger until i removed one of them.

It has a spring inside a spring, supposedly to replicate the feel of the S&W DOA revolver triggers.

Try all the handguns you can. I have a Sigma in .40 and I've had Glocks. My hold is uncomfortable with a Glock, but works for the Sigma.

Buy a used 40 then add the 357 barrel for $100 from lone wolf.
Cheaper than new.
You end up with a two cal gun. Add a 9mm barrel and you have 3 guns in one.

Yep, that's what i did. Awesome pistol. Target shoot with the 9mm's and carry the .40's or .357's.

I have the Lone Wolf 357SIG conversion barrel as well. It's fun to shoot, but I want to point out 2 things:
1) Recoil on a 357SIG load is much higher than .40S&W. I recommend using a separate recoil spring assembly that's about 2-4lbs stronger. Otherwise the frame (and your hand) will likely take a beating. Remember, it's all about control.

2) Technically, firing a different caliber in a Glock will void your warranty, if that's important to you. If you're not worried about it (I never have), I still don't recommend shooting 357SIG with just a barrel swap for any long period of time.

Regarding 9mm...yeah, nothing wrong with that, although you might get stovepipes due to an overly-strong recoil spring. Don't take my word for that though...I shoot hand-loaded 155gr low-powder .40S&W rounds with my regular spring with no problems (when I shoot competitively on weekends), and I'd say the recoil is comparable to a 9mm, and I've never had a stovepipe. I'm just pointing out that _some_ people have said they have stovepipe issues with a 9mm barrel swap in a .40S&W Glock.

you said it would void the warranty... what warranty does Glock have for its firearms?
