If you want something for protection and can be concealed, go with the glock 26. Mags are interchangeable between glocks.

You can get a glock, sigpro, Springfield xd, used beretta, and maybe a smith and Wesson m&p.

Check out cdnninvestments.com they got some pretty good prices on guns.

If you're willing to push a little above your $400 limit, the CZ-75 is a fantastic 9mm. I also have a SR9 that cost me about $400, it's a great weapon as well. I've never been much of a glock fan, but I know that they're dead reliable as well.

Just bought my first handgun. Picked the one that felt comfortable in my hand. A 9mm CZ 75b SS. Went with the stainless steel for durability. Shot it for the first time last week and really liked it. I could have picked up the non SS for just over $400 but am always willing to spend more for quality and longevity. Seems to pay off in the long run every time. Now I need a source for bulk ammo so I don't go broke shooting.

Or you could get a Glock 17/19 and get a 22 conversion for it. Win/win

something just to have around in case.

this will be the first handgun i will have, already have a savage 30-6
but looking for mainly under $400 used or new doesnt matter.

any good brands/model you would suggest?

thanks
Every 21 yr old has to have a Glock...then you outgrow it.
A SW 686 will be a much smarter handgun for a first timer and do everything you want.
And you will look smarter to people with more handgun experience.
I'm pretty sure you'll end up with a Glock (THERE BADASS!(sic))

I've put this in so many threads,but I'm happy to share what I know. Go handle everything you can. I know you want a gun NOW,but handle every gun you see. Disregard price. I'm not saying go buy a Les Baer custom for $5k,but handle everything you can find. One will feel the best in your hand. I wanted a Glock for years. Finally went shopping and thought " It's out of my price range,but I'll check out this H&K over here ". Waited a bit longer and got that. I have never held anything that fits my hand as well. That being said,I carry my Sig-Sauer 1911 classic reverse the most of anything I have. But handle them all and find what fits best,then go from there. And like others have said here..don't buy it,take it home and toss it in the nightstand. Go shoot it,and shoot it often. You want to commit the operation of it to muscle memory. I'll compare it to driving a stick shift. When you first do it,you have to consciously think about it,each shift,every time. But after you drive one awhile,it's not using your concentration.You kind of just do it.Muscle memory. The same works with any handgun. The more you use it,the more likely you'll do well in the event you really need it. To your preference of a safety,a lot of experts dislike them. Not for safety's sake,but for the extra step when you need the gun NOW. It gives you one more thing to fumble on and cause an issue.

One more thing..another good idea would be to find a small 22 pistol to work on your basics. Shooting a pistol is a whole new world if you've only shot long guns. A .22 will help develop good habits in handgun shooting.Light recoil and cheap as hell to go through ammo.

Ok...I'm stepping off the soap box. Next ?

you probably paid alot more for that than what a G26 costs also, i put NS's on all of my glocks, they're about $80 a set


funny about how everyone raves about the G19, i know it's glocks most popular model and for some reason i have about everything BUT a G19, had one once, got it for my ex g/f to shoot we split and that gun went bye bye, it was a 1991 production year 2nd gen, shot great, i just prefer to CCW the 26, it compliments my 17 and 34 nicely

glock 26's are $499 here, they accept G17, G18 (33rd) and G19 mags as backups

i like sig 290, i actually thought about buying one till i realized they were a $500+ gun, too much for me, esp now that the M&P sheild's are out

i bought a PF-9 and it's been 100% rock solid reliable after 400+rds now (but only carry it when the G26 is too much to carry)
