Whats a good range pistol in 9mm?
I'm wanting to buy a pistol just to plink with at the range in 9mm. I've got .22,.380, .40, .45, .38, and .357 but have somehow neglected to ever buy a 9mm. Whats a good pistol to buy for just shooting and having a good time. I'm thinking glock 19 but I'm not fond of the boxy look and feel. Any ideas?

Glock 17 or 34Government big enough to supply everything you need is big enough to take everything you have

Glock 19 or 17People lie on gun forums about prior military experience every day. Especially the gay ones.

For target shooting there really is no reason to get anything compact, and for that matter anything lightweight. A big, heavy pistol will be easier to shoot and have less felt recoil.
If I were going to buy a range gun in 9mm, I think it would have to be a CZ 75.Piece Be With You and other T-shirts available at www.awesamerica.com.

STI Trojan in 9mm"Victims? Don't be melodramatic. Look down there. Tell me. Would you really feel any pity if one of those dots stopped moving forever? If I offered you twenty thousand pounds for every dot that stopped, would you really, old man, tell me to keep my money, or would you calculate how many dots you could afford to spare?" - Harry Lime, The Third Man

Awesome deal on a Ruger P-85 if you're in the market for something used: http://www.wideners.com/itemdetail.c...m_id=100000167

Used Glock 17 in the $450 range.
It like to tinker with range-only pistols. You can buy aftermarket stuff 'till the cows come home for a Glock and there's more how-to videos and information on the internet than you could read in a lifetime.

I've got the 24/7 in .40. I guess a matching set would be kinda cool. I'm kinda looking for an SA/DA trigger. The long trigger pull on the 24/7 on followup shots is the only complaint I have. A buddy had the p89, I always kinda liked it. Keep the ideas coming though.

I see where Academy has the Sig 2022 Basic 9mm on for 399. I've always heard good things about sig, but the word Basic kinda makes me leary. Any comments?
