Well I'm new to the forums, so this is my first thread post. As the title suggests, I am looking to by my first gun, and I've been looking at handguns.I'm looking to get either 9mm or a .40 cal. I've been looking at a Beretta fs 92 or a sig p229. The maximum I would like to spend is $700. I just want to get some more opinions about other guns. I want to see what else is out there before I make a decision. You guys can suggest any gun, the above are the ones I've just been primarily looking at. Just explain why and what you like about it. Note: I don't want any compact guns, i have big hands and just can't stand holding small guns. I mainly plan on using this for some shooting at a range, maybe competitions, and home defense.
