    What's your purpose in using this gun? All around best handgun for $400 IMO would be the sr series in ruger. You can find sr 9 or 40 concealed carry for used 375-400. They come with 10 round or you can use 17 round mag to make it basically full size pistol. My favorite gun is the lc9. But you cannot go wrong with a p95, wowwww those things feel so smooth. That gun has felt the best of any gun I've ever shot but they are extremely bulky.

    I love my P95!!! Bit bulky for carry but they are built to last and eat anything...

    I had that mpa with red dot and I could hit a 3 inch plate at 20 yards with ease! I actually hit it first try. Got a steal on it $350

    Under $300?
    Proven military track record?
    9mm?
    Look at the Argentine clone of the Hi-Power.

    I carried a kahr cm9 for a while in the pocket. That's what I would recommend for someone on a budget that wants a 9mm that's still easy to conceal

    I have a P95. They are good guns. Mine has been very reliable. I carry it once in a while. I have a bunch of guns. It is on the larger side of the carry type. But it is very do-able. I would buy mine again.

    Stoeger Cougar is an EXCELLENT one.
    Look at the Bersa Thunder Pro 9mm

    Both are very good, the Stoeger is actually a Beretta.

    I have a P95 that I carry all the time. I either use a belly band holster or a 3 slot pancake holster. Using the belly band holster I can carry the P95 wearing shorts and a baggy t shirt. I am getting long in the tooth. The 6" belly band makes a good back support. I get my belly band holsters from the sportsmans guide for under $20.

    If you have small hands you will not like the P95. The P95 has a large stock for a 9mm.
