I'll be first, I need some advice
Well I may have to make an amendment to my post in the "For The Married Guys" thread in the "OFFBEAT AREA". Please don't flame me if you see me discussing this topic in other threads.
I have done some reading and talked to a guy at my gun shop whose opinion I value and have learned some very discouraging things about the Taurus Millennium series. My gun shop doesn't even keep them in stock anymore because they got tired of sending them off for warranty work. I have heard about Taurus's CS being poor of late and various problems with their Millennium line, feeding problems, frames cracking!?! etc. We had settled on the Taurus PT111 for her because she has small hands and it fits her very well, the slide is easy to rack (she will be working on her hand strength so she will have more options for a second gun), and the price is reasonable. She shot a SW 38special and does NOT want a revolver.
Any of you guys have suggestions about what to look at? I would love to get her an XD9SC and we will also be looking at the Walther P99 but on the other hand we're wanting to stay under/around $450.00 (or less!!). Any suggestions will be very much appreciated.
