      Buying first semi auto handgun, soa, doa, da/sa, dak.....and all the manufacturers

      I know how to handle a gun and shoot, I have not had a gun since and old 32 30 years ago. I want the gun to range/target shoot and for home safety.

      HELP.....

      excellent, very informative. I like the ease of a Glock but worried the trigger system is not as safe as a 1911.

      A properly maintained and functional firearm is perfectly safe as long as the one handling the gun is being safe. I have no issues with Glock triggers/actions but do prefer a manual safety, mostly as that it what I'm used to. There are many good options similar to Glocks that have a manual safety of some sort.

      The S&W M&P with thumb safety is generally what I recommend for those looking for a "Glock-like" polymer gun with a manual safety.

      Take a good look at a Sig SP2022, many believe is the best kept secret in firearms, also; the S&W m&p mentioned above is also an excellent choice. Both have a lifetime warranty and excellent CS......JJ

      Should be mandatory reading for anyone getting into firearms and concealed carry. It would save alot of recurrent "what do you think, or what should I get post's".

      Great info VAMarine as usual

      I second the Sig P2022 - it's a great gun IMHO



      You might also look at the Beretta PX 4 - wonderful gun



      And then the FNX 9



      All three are DA/SA guns - I like hammer fired guns compared to striker fired guns.

      All 3 are high quality guns..
