lets here it guys and gals!the good, the bad, the ugly. what do you like and why!
of the 5 makes listed... i have only owned glock, S&W, and ruger. depends on what your pice range is. my personal opinion, you can never go wrong with a glock. tough, rugged and reliable. if I were going to purchase an automatic S&W it would definately be a M&P (I would't buy any other S&W auto, again this is just my preference.) I had a ruger p89 and never had any problems with it, I just liked the feel of other weapons better, but if you are on a budget, rugers are gonna run a little less. I've never been a beretta fan. I love their automatic shotguns for hunting, but never really liked their handguns. Walther... because of the price, I always start comparing them to sigs, which I love. Its really gonna come down to what feels good in your hands and how much money you want to spend. you may be completely different than me in your preference. go to a range and try them all out.
I cant stand the M9, what a P.O.S., but love the S&W M&P series
Rugged and reliable.
