      just curious what make/model to purchase

      Im new to this site, and recently i have been interested in purchasing a handgun. Trying to stay with the semi-auto at a 40 cal. But as of
      now i am just stuck on the make/model. Beretta? Taurus? S&W? ect. So if anyone would be willing to point me in the right direction that
      would be great!!
      But thats about all i have for now
      thanks

      1. Read on-line reviews of the guns in which you are interested, seeing who likes what in terms of reliability.
      2. Go to a range or store where you can rent time on as many different pistols as possible. Try them all. Find the most comfortable ones, and buy from among those.

      I've got a Gen 4 Glock 22 that has been nothing but a joy to own. The 9 mm Lone Wolf conversion barrel works flawlessly and the Tactical Solutions 22LR conversion does too. I've shot it in 40 S&W configuration and it's reliable and competitive in Production Class. No problems even with reloads. I carry it regularly now.

      So your saying a 40 cal s&w is a good choice? What model though? There are so many different ones

      Sorry, but I have to put in a plug for the Beretta Model 96. They are large, but they are made for winning the fight. If I were going for the Glock, I would have to go for the G23. Its chambered for the round you want, and is in more of a compact size range for concealing ease. Don't rule out the Smith and Wesson Model SW40VE Sigma either. Lots of people slam them, but they are worth their price tag in spades. Kahr makes some nice stuff in .40 S&W as well. There are so many choices out there that it boggles the mind, but that is part of the fun of buying that first handgun. Good luck on your search.

      i have had a tz75 series 88 and a taurus pt100d .... both in .40cal .... both alloy frame (old school not polypistols) and i like the tz better only because of the ergos but either of them are a good gun in that caliber
