    Hey guys,

    I'm looking for a lightweight 9mm, max price $500, no other requirements . Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
    Thanks

    Easy.

    Ruger P-Series (P95 or P85) or the Ruger SR9.

    Those 9mm pistols will be well below your 500 dollar price cap, and they are among the most reliable out there.

    Springfield Arms XD 9. Greater magazine capacity than the Ruger (Which is a very sweet gun, BTW), lighter, and smaller.

    Any one of the CZ 75 series pistols is a good choice, and the CZ P-07 Duty while ugly as heck is a really great lightweight hi-capacity compact 9x19mm for around $400 as well.

    I hope this helps. :)

    The Ruger P series (including the P93 & P94) are a good choice. If you shop around you might be able to find a S&W M&P 9mm that fits your price range.

    I just got a Kel Tec 9mm. Bought it used because the price was right (150 for the pistol, holster and 50 federal hollowpoints), but even new its under 300. Nice and compact and feels good in your hand. The one downside (so far) with this gun is the range...wouldnt trust it over 20 paces or so, but that could be me---need some more range-time with this puppy :rolleyes: I think it will be an excellent gun to carry for personal protection.

    MY best carry gun

    Well, the Glock 26 I just bought wasn't my first choice; it was the only choice other than Taurus. I love it, it is very accurate @ 10-20 yards. The magazine loader is a real plus with my arthritis!

    to be honest, it should not be hard to find a certified pre-owned beretta 92 for around 400 duckits. I live in Tucson and the local police supply had like 2 of them for around 350 in almost brand new condition with 3 mags and a box. Sweet deal for a 9mm if u ask me!!! If it were my choice, id save up and get a sig p226 9mm which are sweet platforms and a pre owned one usually wont cost too much more then 600. I got a p226 equinox certified pre owned in .357sig/40 in almost perfect condition, 3 12 round mags and a 20 round mag all in a sig box for 685 dollas!!! Now its my carry piece.:D

    Ruger P95. Will do everything a SIG 2022 does, for less money.



    ....nuff said.



    :D


    P.S. A SIG 2022 series is a good choice. SIG makes some well designed firearms.

    He said he wanted a lightweight. Most of the guns you guys listed are heavy. :)

    Taurus, kahr, kel-tec.....Most of the before named are right at or over 30oz.
