I've loved it since the day I bought it. I have put thousands of rounds through it without one hiccup.

no pics but my first handgun was a Springfield XDM .40 cal. Bi-Tone with the stainless slide. Great pistol and fit my hand perfectly.

I recommend going to a local pawn shop or something and picking up a few. Find the one that feels the most comfortable to you. The top brands all make great pistols!

Glock 22 RTF2 on my 21st birthday. Sold it because I didn't like the RTF texture. It just wasn't fun to shoot more than 50 rounds at a time...

My first handgun (purchased by me) was a $100 Rough Ryder 22 LR revolver. Around $100. My second gun was a Springfield XD, back when they had terrible finishes and were just as well known by its HS2000 Croatian name. I still have it, but I never shoot it.

Today I carry a S&W j-frame or a S&W M&P9c. Both great carry options, but neither meet your caliber options.

9mm Mab at the time it was one of very few high capacity handguns. Standard issue to the French police.

Springfield 1911 chambered in 9mm. It was nice having a full sized frame for my first handgun. I bought an AMT .45 after that and did not enjoy it as much.

My first pistol was a Glock 22 (.40 cal). It was fun and fairly accurate but I couldnt stand the trigger. The trigger would always pinch the hell out of my finger so I sold it.
