so i've been thinking of getting something along the lines of a pt92 taurus but as i was browsing BUDSGUNSHOP site, i saw this gun: CHIAPPA 1911 22LR 5" OD/BLK 10 $243.00 SHIPS FREE and im thinking a 22 might be the way to go for now just so that the wife can get used to a gun around the house.. anyone have any experience with this chiappa 1911 22lr gun? and what do you think about the taurus pt92? Now, dont go out and start a beretta vs taurus war please, i want to know about the pt92, if you have no experience with it, please dont flame it. i happen to like the look/cost of the gun. i dont want to spend over $400 if possible on a handgun especially because i'll go through a couple hundred worth of ammo breaking it in and stuff. Or, are there any other 1911 style guns that are dependable / cheap? im not locked into a pt92, just really like that style edit: ah yes, i dont want anyhting stronger than a 9mm to start off with, just to get the hang of it, i have a small 22lr ruger rifle that we take out for fun but i dont do any pro/serious shooting so like a 45 might be too powerful for me for now, i want to start at a 9mm and worse case scenario i can get stronger guns later and give my wife the 9mm.. also, i like the older 1911, pt92 style look more than the newer "block, err i mean glock" look, there's a taurus 1911 gun as well, not sure of the model # that looks nice and has decent rounds (15) *shrug* im open to new suggestions?
