    Not really unless it's been beat to hell. New, they typically go for around $500+/- so you'd be more along the lines of $400, maybe $375.

    Check out the listings on GunsAmerica etc.and see what they're going for.

    For $300 I'd suspect your getting a 92 not an M9.

    They're virtually the same gun.

    Yes, but the M9 is beefed up in key areas to support sustained use of 9mm nato pressure ammo. Whereas the 92 is not.

    I've never heard of a standard M9 being "beefier" then the 92FS, nor seen actual data from the manufacturer stating such. For a while there were the Brigadier models that had beefier slides, but the M9 does not have those. ThndrChicken is seeming to imply that a M9 costs more than a 92Fs, yet Beretta lists the M9 Commercial and the 92Fs at the same price.

    For $300 it must either have some hidden issues or be "warm".

    Nonsense, the M9 is not beefed up in any key areas over the 92FS. If anything, which is very arguable, the 92FS would be the one with the stronger frame due to it's slanted dustcover, however, neither one is beefed up over the other and they are practically the same pistol with very minor differences and no differences in the strength department.

    It's already been stated in the post above mine, but this is simply not true. Sorry. One too many "I heards" from someplace

    The slide and barrel are exactly the same, just marked differently. And, as stated above, the dustcover difference theoretically could be argued to make the M9 frame not as strong. But in 9mm, it doesn't matter (the 92 frame was changed for the 40 cal round)

    I have been reading posts about buying a used, ok rather then buy from a store, where else should one look to purchase, i think the stores are going to charge more, or what do some of you thing about purchase from a diffrent state where the cost of some things are cheaper then here in NJ and then have it sent to a local store, however this one local store charges $45.00 for handling when someone has a gun sent to them for pickup?

    also somone new in guns would have to have some very knowledgeable in guns to purchase a used one, because those of us new in guns would have no idea the condition of a used gun?

    I have an aversion to buying used guns. I have sold a guns over the years - and thankfully there is a market for it.

    But, I prefer to buy new and have a warranty. I've seen too many NEW gun lemons that friends have owned or I have read about on forums. People get rid of their headaches... Too often, they sell the lemon, and it could be YOUR lemon. Also, you get no warranty on a used gun, typically.

    ONLY way I'd ever think of buying a used gun would to meet someone at the range and put a couple of magazines thru the gun.. I am shocked that over the years, only 1 person has done this when I sold guns. I don't really mind (the shooter pays for their own ammo and range fee, obviously).

    Simple answer..........yes. Practical answer.........I'd get the serial number and call the local police and ask them to run it before I'd buy it. If it's hot, you won't be out $300 sometime in the future, nor will you be unwittingly feeding the stolen gun market. If you are a person of integrity, no deal is good enough to justify buying stolen property.

    In Texas, the LARGE gun shows are nice. I plan to go to one next weekend. One can typically find guns for $50-$100 less than a gun store. Now, granted, you pay $8 to get in and $10 to park. But, it's still a discount. And, you can walk around and pick up tons of weapons - unlike being at a gun store when you have to ask to hold each one individually

    However, that's not the same all over the USA. Some people are always complaining that the gun shows suck. And, small ones are usually NOT worth going to.

    It just depends on what its like in your area

    gun shows and pawn shops are good place to shop for a deal.But you need to be or have someone who is knowledgeable.Kind like buying a used car.There are bad deals and good deals.
