Hey guys, im looking to purchase my first hand gun and would like the expert advice of the forum members here. Ive had my eye on a couple different guns and calibers. -Springfield XD -Beretta -Sig Sauer -Glock -9mm -.40 -.45 Here is the thing, im on a budget. From the gun purchase to the ammo. Thats part of the reason im considering a 9mm, cost of ammo is low... but at the same time, id like a gun with a little more umph than a 9mm. I know im going to get a variety of answers, and please be kind, I know very little about pistols. What is a good brand, between $300-$400, and what caliber should I aim for? This will mainly be for recreation shooting. Thanks guys!
