Glock 17 for full size grip; 19, 26, 43x or 43 for carry. I prefer Gen 4. Extremely easy to completely disassemble and parts are available. Put the time in to get used to the trigger. Dry firing is very beneficial

I like my M&P 2.0. It took a couple of boxes to recalibrate after I added the laser sighting, but Even with that it's easily and comfortably carried.

Handguns are boring to me. I don't really have a use for them.

Can't go wrong with Smith M&P series, but my absolute favorite is the Springfield 1911 RO Elite Compact in 9.

Check out a S&W 929 revolver. Good shooters and fun. The Dan Wesson's punch way above their price point if you want a 1911, and the Springfields and STIs are good too in that 1911 format.

Otherwise nearly any of the plastic guns will do fine.

I am a big fan of the CZ's. I just acquired a Tactical Sport. The pull is literally 1lb 10ozs. There is nothing else like it, except maybe the new improved Tactical Orange. I also love my custom sp 01 custom shadow. I used to think nothing could beat my Sig 229 platinum elite. Cz is a better shooter by far, but not a better carry. I was seriously considering trading my HK Mark 23 for an HK P7 squeeze cocker to make all my range choices 9's but those are hard to come by. The MP is great for the money. The Glocks are ultra reliable but their triggers need to be replaced to be any good. I actually got a 9mm conversion barrel for my 23 to make it a 9. I like that. Ghosted the trigger. Like that more.


As a recommendation: Look at the CZ SP 01. Its about 600. Heavy, 17 shot clip, very reliable and an addictive shooter.

Cheap: Look at an EAA SAR gun or the M&P.

Striker fired; Buy a glock 40 and get the conversion barrel. The mags will fit 9 and 40 and its twofer or look at the CZ P10.

In terms of overall brands and quality, I'm a big fan of CZ, Sig, and Springfield.

For target shooting, I really like the Sig 226, CZ 75D, or a full-size Springfield XDM. I've shot plenty of Glocks and I'm sure they are reliable but they are ugly as shit. I'll go Springfield all day over Glock and Springfields have some much better safety features.

For CCW, I'd lean towards the Sig 938 if you like a 1911 style in smaller form factor or S&W M&P.

Going over the answers I realized you said semi-auto but didn't specify hand or long gun.

If you are looking for something that is easy to shoot and just a truckload of fun, check out some of the pistol caliber carbines (PCC) in 9mm. Palmetto armory has glock and colt mag fed lowers you can make a nice parts-gat from, or buy a built 16" rifle for less than $700, which is cheaper than most of the pistols mentioned above. Very accurate with decent ammo, can be tinker-toyed up if you are into that, or set up for work or competition. Minimal recoil with a different feel than .223. And if you use a 16" barrel you'll gain a couple hundred FPS over a handgun (i.e. fiocchi 115gr fmj chronos about 1200 form a 5" barrel, and about 1425 from a 16" barrel...dang near makes major from the pcc). You can go top tier and get a JP, or go ghetto and make one from the cheap-o parts bin. Best deals I've seen are on the palmetto based parts guns. I have a 16" with a light weight kaw valley barrel (cheap barrel) and get 1" at 50 yards with tailored ammo (coated 135gr SNS with American Select). I've shot a lot of them, and honestly a well sorted cheapo home built will hang with a top tier brand except when it comes to resale.

Well, actually looking at "compact" semi-autos for possible carry.

But, regardless of type, , , , , the shelves are bare!!!

If you feel like venturing westward to the land of the mouse, our shops don't seem to be having a problem staying stocked.

Have you tried Frog Bones? I know they sold out of everything when all this BS started, but they seem to re stock pretty fast. They never ran out of ammo. I've been looking for a small carry 9MikeMike and Bass pro is out of stock, at least the Palm Bay one is. I'm leaning towards the S&W M&P Shield or the Glock 43. Both are around $300-$400. I m not into dumping a lot of money on something I will most likely never use or show it off to anyone.

The S&W Shield is hard to beat for actual carry, and if you're handy I'd install the Apex Duty/Carry trigger kit.

For pistol caliber carbine style fun and historical interest, check out the Polish import PPS-43C. Mine is planned for an SBR project at some point.

Green,

It must be serendipity!

I was not going to post about it, because I figured that a lot of folks would start dissing Taurus but, , , ,

I did have a chance to talk to a good friend of one of my very good friends about a "carry". He is a full fledged NRA type who, at the convention, has lunch and/or dinner with a NRA board member just about every day.

He told me that as a "price point" that I should seriously look at the Taurus G2c!!! He has one, and I think he said his wife has one too. Not too big of a deal though, he keeps 23 carries in his safe at home!!! He generally buys all of the best, most expensive, weapons.

I don't carry because I am protecting the world from me. lol

Guns make people bigger than they really are and that's a dangerous combination.
