    Looking for a recommendation on a first 9mm for my son. I'd like to keep the price around $400 but willing to go higher. Will be used mainly for range shooting.

    Those new Caniks seem decent if you want to buy new.

    For his first 9mm, and for a range gun, I’d look for something with an external safety. M&P 9c perhaps? In your price range and with decent aftermarket support.

    There is a gentlemen selling a NIB APX on the forum right now for $450. I had my eye on it but something came up I need to use the funds for. Big Beretta fan and have been wanting to pick one up for a while. They have had good reviews for feel and trigger. Easy to disassemble and clean. I think it would make a very nice range weapon for the price and they are usually overlooked, same goes for the PX4 if you prefer DA/SA hammer fire with a safety.

    Looks like that's just the .40.

    FWIW, I recently picked up a NIB Beretta 92FS on GB for $440. With shipping & transfer I have $475 in it.

    I recently picked up a Canik TP9 SF Elite on impulse. It shoots very well, I’d have no problem using it for carry. It was right about $450 OTD locally, might be a bit cheaper online.

    For around 450 the S&W M&P series are a solid option. The 2.0 compact is a perfect do all. You can also find a used Glock 19 around that price. As far as single stacks the Shield can be had for a bit over 350.

    I would look for CPO Sig P226/P229/P228. Here is a West German P228 that I paid $425 for. 13529033_1144720258882188_7996261199916233818_n.jpg
