I've been looking online and in the local gun stores for my first piece and I have it narrowed down. Ultimately I want to get several pistols in difference calibers from difference manufacturers. I want my first gun to be a 9mm because I plan to shoot quite a bit at the range and want to save money on ammo. It will likely be 12 months before I but my second gun. Here's my top 5
1. H&K USP Full Size 9mm/.40 or USP Compact .45 (because full size .45 too long and compact 9 and 40 too short)
2. Beretta 92fs 9mm
3. Sig P226 .357 sig
4. Glock 23
5. Beretta Px4 Storm Full size or compact (not sub-compact) in a 9mm or .40
For my first gun I want a good home defense/range pistol. Eventually I want to get a good carry pistol but I'm not going to carry anytime soon. A .357 magnum revolver is something I want but its down on my list.
My main question is.... Should I get the USP in a 9mm if I'm going to turn around and buy the 9mm Beretta for my second gun? I don't want both my first two guns to be 9mms. I could go with the Beretta as my first gun and get the 9mm for the range like I want and buy the USP in a .40 or .45 as my second gun. I'm just in love with the USP and want to get it first but I'd like my first gun to be a 9mm but I want the USP in a larger caliber.
I had a sig p250 9mm and now i have a sig sp2022 9mm, a USP .40 Full size and a Taurus PT1911. All of which are awsome guns. Literally no problems in either of the Sig's. If I were you I would have no problem getting a sig or USP in 9mm or .40. I went with a 40 just because I got a good deal on it. But if you like to shoot alot and want to save $5 a box go with 9mm otherwise get whatever you get a good deal on and want the most!
Start with the Beretta 92FS. That's what I did, and it is a pleasure to shoot.
