    Lots of Glock extras out there, G17 &19 have extended capacity magazines up to 33 rounds. If you can't hit your target, at least a few times, that person will run off, with probably a wound somewhere.

    Just my .02 cents would be a Ruger SR9c. I got one back in March and love it! For me it was the right fit. I got mine for 375$ before tax. Its very fun to shoot at the range. Mine came with a 10 and a 17round mag.
    For me I did not want to spend a lot of my 1st gun purchase. I have 1,200 round through with out any issues.

    Good luck on picking a pistol thatís right for you.

    I'm not sure if I already responded to this thread, as I'm too lazy to read thru it and check.

    That having been said, the Beretta 92FS is one of the finest (if not the best) handgun in the world, bar none.

    And, it is incredibly affordable.

    Reducing ammo

    9mm is great if that's what you want. Just my opinion based on years and many many thousands spent on ammo. I have 6 9mm hand guns, a few others (trying to liquidate, as I've had many of them), multiple ar15's and 308's. I used to have a dozen more calibers. My new plan is to reduce ALL my guns to 9mm, .223 and 308. That's it. Well, some shotguns and .22 plinkers. But my view is to have a limited set of calibers so I can maintain the ammo. It was way too expensive and complicated trying to keep up on all the different ammo, and how many rounds I have. I've also considered what would happen if I had to scrounge for ammo in some sort of disaster, (which leads me to consider getting some AK's).

    I look at it this way: If I need to keep 10,000 to 20,000 rounds of each caliber, which calibers will I choose? Simple answer for me. 9, .223, 308. I'm there with the .223, half way with the 9mm, and not even close yet with the 308. Not only do you need to consider the ammo, but mags cost money too. Gotta have a hundred or so mags too. Now if you only want one gun and a box of 20 rounds, I still say 9mm because it's less physically demanding, making for more accuracy for a larger segment of people, was the biggest bang for the buck on stopping power. As far as best choice, any of the top 10 or 20 will work just fine. In that range are numerous opinions, and opinions change constantly. Some of mine have been the #1 choice, then they move down to 10, then back up to 5.... Who cares. I love my guns no matter what anyone else says.

    +1 on the Sig SP2022. It's accurate and very well made. I've got about 2,000 rounds through mine and it's been flawless.

    Also consider the CZ 75B and the CZ 75 SP01. Both are steel-frame pistols, which make for great range/HD guns. CZs have the best grip ergonomics in the business. They feature sweet triggers, very good sights and top notch CS.

    CZ 75B or 85B would be a great dual purpose gun with the accuracy of the CZ you can't go wrong. I have Glock's, Sigs, Beretta's and my CZ's are the "BEST" out there for the money. Good luck with your decision.

    There's something to be said for 'violence of action'. Having 15 rounds of 9mm and being able to dump them quickly at the bad guy before reloading and doing it again can cause enough noise and fear to make the bg quickly break contact even if he's not hit. Just something to think about.

    I didnt see anything about the XDM (close to your budget) which is an all around amazing tool, that package comes with a lot of goodies, go with the XD9 and save a few bucks. One tool that has gotten me by surprise and consistently listed as one of the top 5 handguns is the Taurus PT92. Its sexy, accurate and flawless. I have never been a fan of the glock, seems as if they are not as accurate as the others and the feel isnt as nice as the XDM or the Taurus. If you are trying for a conceal look at the LC9 in your budget. The CZ-75 is also a solid choice. Good luck!
