I am newly interested and have spent 2 days looking at EVERYTHING the world has to offer. I have recently (Friday) fired a Glock G19, a Beretta 90Two, and somehow an MP5 (much fun, but NOT on the list of potential purchases). I'm in no immediate rush and wish to buy the best all around gun for my needs... home protection and the (hopefully frequent) range trips. Experienced opions will be of much value to me. My retired NYPD father is glad I turned down the job, and equally glad I am interested now, but his S&W .38 (service and snub) are only for show these days. I'm in the market for a 9mm. Thanks in advance!
