    OK! im back....

    sorry I took so long to reply.....
    so I decided it would be best for me to start nice and simple......
    so I got a S&W Sigma 9mm..

    some of u guys say it's not a worthy gun, but I don't think that's true. It's been great. No hick ups as of yet nor do i expect any.

    Thanks for yall help

    Ladies and gentlemen im finally buying my first handgun today april 22, 2009.

    Check out the Powderhorn Gunshop, and several others here in our area. As exciting as it can get, try to be patient and check out and hold several models before you commit to your first grab off the shelf. Have fun (theres nothing wrong with being excited), and just be patient. You want the most for your money. Good luck

    Academy has S&W M&P 9's at $499 and Glock 19 + 17's at $529.....if you can find them. I have all three of the above and would recommend any of them.

    They do have plenty of S+W Sigma 9's in stock ( a Glock knock off) at $349, which would leave you some ammo $$$....if you can find it.

    Just don't let someone talk you into buying something you don't want. I wanted to buy an XD 45 but I let someone talk me into a 40. I love my CZ and I'm happy I bought it, but now I have to out and buy the XD 45 to. So just get what you want and not what someone else wants you to get and you will be happier.
    P.S Look into the XD service all calibers (9mm,.40 S&W,.45 ACP)

    I forgot CZ probably deserves a look to, got 75 B .40 for under $400 out the door from a pawn shop. Bran new they are about $405 (not positive) but it shoots great and the 9mm I hear shoots better. The only problems are finding holsters and not having a decocker on some models. If getting a CHL is in the future for you I'd go with the XD or a Glock.
