what to buy? cheap brands good or bad?
I want to avoid any cheap brands, but sometimes it is hard to tell which ones are junk and which are not. I want something reliable and safe.
I plan on getting a 9mm for range shooting and home defense, and it has to be something that my Wife won't mind shooting.
I've been leaning towards a Glock 17 or a Sig 226 or something similar. They are both pretty light and decent for carry.
I like the feel of the Glock a lot, but I'm not sure my Wife would like the safety, or the fact that I hear the expended bullets are pretty random. I think she might be a little scared of it.
The Sig 226 is expensive, but if it is that good, I will pay for it. IMO you can't put a price on such an investment.
Are there some other models I should be looking at?
Does Smith&Wesson make a nice 9mm auto, or are they junk? I know they make a great revolver.
What about the CZ? Are they any good?
I recently shot a Beretta and the grip was a little fat for my liking.
