Between these 2 gun what do you think?
So I will be buying my first handgun pretty soon. Im not really new to them as I used them in the military just never owned one. First off it will be used as a bedside table protection weapon and a target/ fun shooting gun.
Right now Im torn between the Taurus 1911 ALR. The alloy one with the rail and the Beretta Vertec in 9mm. I know there are pros and cons to each just wanted some general opinions on anything from cost of ammo to reliabilty. I know lots of ppl have had problems with Taurus but you dont see much bad stuff about their 1911's other then the finish comes off. Please help a new guy out.
