Hey ya'll just registered tonight, I hope to purcharse my first firearm within the next week. I am deciding between a taurus pt92 9mm, and a 24/7 9mm pro heinie ss. I would be happy if you could offer any opinoins on these guns, or any other guns in the 350-400 dollar price range. Thanks in advance and I look forward to posting.

Your first sidearm should be a 1911. If at some point a few years from now you want to increase your collection; have at it. 1911 need no tools to break down, is a simple and reliable system, and there is no other sidearm that has a higher availability for parts. Since you mentioned $400: Start with a Springfield Armory Mil-Spec or USGI.

Hey, Joel. I just joined today as well. How far are you from the Big Chicken?

In the price range you are working with, I would recommend an RIA 1911A1. But then, I am an old timer, and that is the handgun I cut my teeth on (back when I had teeth). There is a reason the 1911 has been popular for 96 years.

RIA's are crap. They are not milspec; even though they advert that they are. I know folks who have had lots of parts not work; including milspec mags from Chip McCormick. Heck, you know some of those folks too. ;-)
