I have another buddy looking at getting his self a hand gun. It will be his only hand gun. He has had a few in the past and is comfy around them. As he has started working in a not so good area, he decided to get one again. He will be carrying it concealed, using it at the range with me, and home defense. His problem is much like mine, he likes too many different types. He likes the capacity and reliability of the Glock 23 as well as the size, comfort, etc.. Option 2 is Bersa Thunder 380. Most affordable, comfortable, and reliable, but hates the caliber. Number 3, 5 shot wheel gun. SP101, S&W442, etc.. Like the ultimate simpicity and reliabilty, but doesn't agree with the capacity. Then there's the compact 1911. Nothing more needs to be said, right. Like I've said, he and I agree on all four of these, but for him, he can't decide on just one. Maybe you can help. The weigh out is listed below. Thank you for your help. Pro's vs. Con's Most comfortable---Bersa Most attractive---Snub nose Most capacity---G23 Most knock down---1911 Most expensive---1911 Ugliest---Glock Most expensive to shoot---Bersa Best selection of accessories---Glock/1911 Greatest simplicity---Revolver Slowest reload---Revolver Least capacity---Revolver There are likely to be some points that I forgot!
