    Looking for a target handgun

    right now i have a taurus pt-111 9mm and i've fired about 1500 rounds, taken the gun apart a few times and cleaned it and have gotten to be an acceptable shot with it nothing incredible just pretty consistent groups its my first gun. it has a 3.in barrel and i mainly bought it in interest of concealed carry and self defense. its fairly compact and i painted the sights neon orange which looks alot better.

    anyways i was kind of wondering about maybe getting another 9mm weapon that is a bit heavier and more stable with a longer barrel maybe more suited to target shooting at the range. also it is important that the gun is easy to get attachemnts for like grips, laser ect. i dont reeaally care to spend more than $500-600 on something seeing that i spent only $350 on that taurus and had zero problems with it. im open to your expertise.

    I'd go with a CZ 75. Practically any model would work, but I'd go with a CZ 75 SP01 Tactical -- which has a longer barrel than the standard 75B. It's my next handgun, for just about the same reasons you gave -- I've found I like target shooting and I'd like a pistol that is better at it than my FNP9. There's nothing wrong with the FNP -- but it's a personal defense pistol, not really one for target shooting.

    If you really wanted a target-shooting pistol you might look at .22 LRs. I'm also thinking of a Ruger Mark II or III.

    Good luck and let us know what you decide.

    The CZ75 or 85Combat would be a great option. There are also options from other manufacturers such as the M&P Pro Series (JeffWard?), XD-M, Glocks, Sigs, etc. Give them all a look and shoot them if you can before you make your decision. Good luck with the search.

    Yeah, Jeff gave the right answer. It's just that I like shooting CZ 75s a lot, and have already made my choice. I did shoot one each of everything that Wade's has to offer in 9mm, but the CZ is my personal favorite. Your mileage may vary.

    I'd give some thought to a 1911, too, except for your price point.
