The best advice I can give anyone is to shoot some first. Try to find an indoor range that does rentals. Find the action your looking for or what fits your hand not mine. I would just stay with the major brands sig, glock, Springfield, kahr, ruger, ect.... 1911s are nice but if your not willing to carry cocked and locked then I wouldn't recommend one. I personally carry a sig p238. Its basically a miniature 1911 and in .380. Easy to carry and conceal and dependable. Extremely accurate for its size. Pic out dif aspects that your looking for. Do you want an external safety. Single action double action. Short or long trigger. I'm going through all of this with my wife. So far is between a sig like mine vs Smith body guard. Hope this helps. If I had to recommend I would say tarus slim, Springfield xd, or glock.

XD no doubt. It won pistol of the year for how many years? Also it wont break the bank and is reliable. 9mm for plinking and economical ammo. TNrifleman I agree about the kimber (I have a Ultra CDP as well) but that is a bit over the 600 mark.

If you can get a used Berreta 92 for $389, I would be all over that. Berreta's are great shooters but they are finicky about cheap ammo. A freind of mine has a 92 and I have an M9. You have to shoot quality ammo out of them, no russian surplus.

American made 16 rounds of reliable fire power.

I carry a M&P45 and absolutely love it. No problems what so ever other than the price of ammo. 40 cal is much cheaper.
