    Thanks
    Let's see...The 92's a great gun, proven platform, great price, AND it fits your wife's hand? Sounds like we have a winner!

    Depends on locale. The cheapest around here is $600. And I've looked around
    I'll go with the 92 also, but, personally, I've never seen one new for $500 or less.
    Come on guys, if nothing else try the Internet or Gun shows.

    Example: CDNN has 92FS for $420.00 and M9 for $430.00. Add their flat rate $10.00 freight, ~$25.00 for your FFL to transfer, you pay no tax (unless you live in Texas) and Presto!

    NIB 92FS for $455.00 delivered.
    NIB M9 for $465.00 delivered.

    So many fine choices

    I'd vote for the 92 also it is a well proven gun and pretty darn good value. I am curious what folks think of the EAA Witness or the Baby Eagle. I've never shot either one, but I've wondered how they are. I see a lot more talk from Baby Eagle owners than the other.

    The Baby Eagle's pretty solid, and VERY accurate.

    My choices would be a 229 sig or the Beretta. Might also look at a Stoeger Cougar, though the Beretta version's a bit slicker.

    Ruger and Smith are also making good metal framed guns that won't disappoint.

    I just was praising my EAA Witness in 10MM over in another thread. Mine has the "Wonder" finish. It's all solid metal and a decent semi-auto for the price. It's basically a CZ Clone. The recoil, even for the 10MM is pretty negligible.

    CZ or S&W "Value Line" pistols are around half a grand. So are the S&W M&P and Glocks, and the Springfield XD is a little less ... oops, you said no plastic.

    Beretta 92 FS

    Looks like the Beretta 92 FS will be her choice. I will let you guys know the final outcome and price.

    Thanks for all the comments and input.

    I would have your wife try the Beretta 92 and CZ 75 before she makes up her mind. I have a slight preference for the CZ because it has cocked and locked mode while the Beretta does not but for plinking, this will not make a difference. The Beretta has the smoothest action of any gun I have ever racked. The CZ has the best ergonomics of any gun I have ever picked up.

    Ruger SR-9. Light weight, accurate, high-capacity, dependable, affordable and safe (with "round-in-chamber" indicator). The only criteria which it doesn't meet is that it uses composites in order to achieve the lightweight status. You might want to puchase, after-market 3.5lb trigger pull. It's an excellent firearm.

    I would hope the OP figured out which 9mm to buy after 4 years.

    Look into an M&P 9. Great shooting pistol, and fits the hand a lot better than a Glock. The M&P's are perfectly balanced compared to other 9mm pistols in the same category.....
