It's a good price for an Elite Series if it's in the shape you described. However, being a beginner, I wouls suggest you get your hands on as many as you can as well as firing them if you can before you decide. Different size hands mix in all kinds of ways with different makes and models of handguns. Finding one that fits properly and feels comfortably will make your shooting experience better. If it fits and feels good, you will be able to shoot it better than if it doesn't.
Look for makes and models with ambidextrious controls, they are out there. Preference with materials may also play into your decision making process. Steel, alloy or polymer frame? Caliber and capacity? What are your needs based on community you live in, type and or manner of concealed carry?
Lots of factors going into this, I would recommend you not be impulsive.
