Hi guys. I want a handgun for several purposes: home defense and target shooting. This will be my first gun, so I wanted something that will cover more than one category. I can't CCW in my state, so I want a full size gun (especially since I have bear claws). I've shot multiple platforms on many calibers, and I really want to start with a 9mm, I just love the round overall. Here are some criteria that the gun should meet: 1. Full size 9mm 2. Amazing accuracy for the price (to be specified) 3. Glass-smooth trigger 4. Should be attractive (I like how Sigs and HKs look) 5. Under $1000 after tax (the gun itself, not any accessories such as a ammo, kit, and a safe that I will buy with it). I've shot a Sig 226, loved it. I've shot a Glock 17, loved it (doesn't do it anymore for me in the aesthetics department though). I've really been interested in shooting an XDM and HK USP in 9. Shot a couple 1911s, I love 'em (but I want a 9mm first and I do NOT want a 1911 in 9mm). Let me have it!
