    When I bought my G23 I also bought a Sigma at the same time. I liked the way the Sigma pointed- ie. it seemed to be on target more quickly and naturally. I just didnít like the trigger. I sold it years ago.

    I actually own a Sigma SW9VE also and the trigger is extremely long & hard. I use it for a car gun often because of the trigger. I know the odds are, that if I ever pull the trigger it will be on purpose. Early Sigma's, deservedly, got a bad name but the VE models are very dependable.
    I started out shooting my MP40 with the medium backstrap and have found since, the large size works better for me. The trigger is (I hear) a 6.5 lb pull. A lot of people judge the feel of the trigger by handling one at a gun store and just pulling on the trigger. That way it is gritty, but, when it is cocked it is very smooth.
    We also own a Baby Desert Eagle 9mm, with a 4lb pull that is very sweet but it has a external safety.
    Anyway to each his own. Hope I didn't come off as too grouchy.

    I ended up picking up a Browning Buckmark Standard. It's a lot of fun and hopefully my girlfriend will enjoy shooting it. Thanks to everyone for their input!

    I'm currently waiting for a Sig 226 Elite to arrive. After that I'm planning on getting a Kahr.

    MRI Baby Eagle .45ACP Semi-Compact
    Browning Buckmark
    Sig Mosquito with Holoscope.

    Yeah, I've heard nothing but great things about the Buckmark and have heard mixed reviews of the Sig Mosquito. The thing about the Sig is that you hear totally negative things or great thing. Nothing middle of the road. I want one because it has the look and feel of a larger caliber pistol but will is very cheap to plink around with. It will also be a good pistol to pack on the 4-wheeler to shoot snakes and such with.

    I would definately go for the Buckmark. great plinker, accurate, reliable, and costs next to nothing to shoot all day. Since you mentioned the Hi-Point carbine, Browning also makes a carbine version of the buckmark, slap a red dot sight on that, buy a brick of ammo and head to the range, you're good to go. Oh well, thats my two cents. Enjoy whatever you choose and shoot safely.

    I don't think I'd agree with that; Raven, Jennings, etc.

    While the Hi Point products are butt ugly, the few I've seen went bang every time. Your milage may vary.

    I don't have any experience with the RIA pistols other than holding one in my hand, once.

    I recommend saving a little more money and getting one of the new MilSpec models from Springfield Armory. A friend has one and it's a nice pistol for the money. They can be had for about $450-500 at guns shows here in MD, so they probably go for a little less in other states. A good alternate would be the Taurus PT-1911. The .22lr conversion kits should fit either one.

    Just my 2 cents.
