Look at the CZ product line. They are a real quality gun across their entire product line.
Another sleeper in the market is the Stoeger Cougar. Look up the history and you'll see why. I had one and it NEVER failed. The finish was extremely durable.
The Ruger SR9 (the SR9c is really flexable if you go CCW) is also a very high value gun and like all Rugers, you'll never wear it out and it has very good after market support and a strong forum.
Happy looking! It's a huge market!
