This is my happy face.
She's not comfortable with the thought of shooting my S&W Model 28 hand cannon (yet), which I can certainly understand. It can seem a bit intimidating at first blush.
|Say hello to my N-framed friend|
I have put together a short-list that I'm researching, and would love your feedback. These are all 9mm pistols, all full-framed instead of compact or sub-compact, currently in manufacture and frequently available used. I'm not hung up on metal versus polymer frame, striker-fired versus hammer-fired, or action type (SA/DA/SAO/DAO). I'm looking to spend under $600, preferably in $450 neighborhood if I can.
With all that being said, here's the list I've put together (EDITED to add the P226):
- Browning Hi-Power
- Beretta PX4
- Beretta 92FS
- Smith & Wesson M&P
- Springfield XD/XD(m)
- Glock 17
- SIG Sauer P226
This will be used by myself as a range gun and occasional carry, and by the missus as a range gun and home defense. Any thoughts, insights, critiques or additions to the list would be greatly appreciated.
