    I have a Beretta 92FS and it's great. 9mm is good to have because it's more fun than a .22 but costs less than a .45 to shoot. I think I got mine for a little over $500 but just search around and you'll most likely find one that's priced well. The 92FS is a good weight, comfortable, and endorsed by the US Military! :infantry:

    And more often reguarded as a pain in the ass compared to the old 1911 .45 lol

    OP if its for your wife, Id say take her in to check her hands against several. S&W, Springfield, Glock, etc make several different sizes in their composite grips and most are under $500. I've never had a problem with the 92fs, but I've heard people with smaller hands complain about being able to properly grip the weapon.

    pretty sure since youre Military OP you can get a discount on Glock or S&W M&P's etc....id buy a 40 caliber gun though and get a swap barrel to shoot 9mm...then you can have the option of shooting 9mm, 40 or even 357sig is you get that barrel too...

    Glock!!!! Just look how many PDs use them, lots off Spec Ops use them, lots of people in competetive shooters use them.
    Cheapish @ $520. Comfortable, accurate, reliable, easy maintenance, great after market support, etc...

    I not a glock fan boy to the point that I dont support the others but...

    I would say the glock 19 would be a great fit all around.

    The 92 is great but all metal... to heavy for some.
    I'm not a fan of a SA/DA defense pistol, i prefer DA only or striker fired for the pure simplicity... aim, squeeze, bang, repeat

    Glock, Myths,
    Fully plastic!!, you do not have to aim the bullets know where to go!!
    They will melt if exposed to the sun so be carefull
    :D:D:D

    Glock facts,
    Rugged, inexpensive,EZ to strip and clean if you feel like it.
    Shoot any kind of ammo except non jacketed,
    Try one to see if it fits your shooting grip, and then buy it.
    For your price range you cannot go wrong!

    The grip (on the 92FS, what I recommended) would probably be a little large for a woman, if you are getting it for your wife. I've just never been a fan of Glocks...The grip is not comfortable at all and the shape of the weapon is odd for me. But to each his own.

    If a glock is too big I doubt a 92 would be any better, exspecialy when you factor in that she needs to be able to operate the saftey, no one handed operation for her.

    Thanks all, after 2 hrs. on the web & ph., Going up to N.Fla on Mon. a dog club member has a gun shop. He said she needs to make sure it fits her hand and not to heavy for her. Will take our old S&W 38 on trade for new Glock or Beretta. He has been selling guns for 15 years and they are his best selling 9MM. With the 500 & old38 puts us in the 700 to 800$ range. I know it's going to have to be light so any good Mod.# in that price range would help now.. Thanks, Jim

    a Glock 19 should be in the low $500 dollar range, for some extra cash you can get them with night sights which would be a good idea.
    All of the Glock 9mm grips are the same thickness, only the length changes. 17 being fullsized/large, 19 being medium and the 26 being the compact.

    the g19 is the perfect sized priced and feeling gun for me. my wife has a gen 4 and can out shoot almost anyone at our range with it.

    i love that gun it has been nothing short of dead reliable with over 2,000 rounds of all types of ammo through it cleaning is a snap no barrel pins to worry about when the world ends lol.

    Spend $500.00 on the Glock then spend some on some FMJ ammo and at least one or two (more is better) classes.
    I have found wives/girlfriends learn more from an instructor than a husband/boyfriend even if they are an instructor as well.

    Training and pratice is money well spent and all to often not done.
    Best of luck.
