Recently came across the Stoeger Cougar 9mm. Salesguy says its the Beretta Cougar only Stoeger does not make it for Beretta since Beretta bought them out. They moved production to Turkey and he further claimed they now produce the same gun for about half the original price. $399 The wife loved the feel and the big yet compactness of it, so she bought it. I don't think much of 9mm. I like .45's. So we go to the range and I shoot the first 16 rounds, all dead on, the POA is the POI. Sweet. She pops off another 175 or so rounds while I watched and smiled. She was having fun. Later I took it out for a 200 round test. Who can trust a Turkish gun? I do now. That's the sweetest shooting 9mm I have ever held. Its a traditional SA/DA.The action is a bit different in that the barrel rotates back but does not tip up like most. Supposed to add to accuracy and I believe it does. If you are considering a 9mm then this should be on your consideration list at any price. And again it makes wives happy.
