So, I'm thinking it's about time to purchase my first pistol. I have about $750 saved up for it. I'm looking for a good carry and defense pistol. My brother is a LEO and he suggested quite a few pistols that he thinks I would like. I have shot many pistols in the past, and every one he owns. Which is a SIG P229 .40, a G26 9mm, and a Ruger LCP .380. There's not much to say about the SIG P229. It simply shoots awesome. Which is also his work issued gun. The G26 is also nice, but I prefer shooting the SIG. And the LCP is just too small, not what I'm looking for. The one's that he suggest are and he has shot all of them: Walther PPQ 9mm (he said the grip just melts in his hands) Walther P99c AS trigger .40 (I understand these are incredibly hard to find) Ruger SR40c or SR9c G26 or 27 Gen 4 XD Subcompact .40 I'm looking for a pistol that is comfortable in my hands, accruate, comfortable to carry, and reliable. I want it to go bang every single time I pull the trigger without a doubt in my mind. Safety is a non issue as the best safety is the owner of the gun. Just looking for opinions for a first-time owner. Thanks in advance. Wanna kill these ads? We can help!
