Hi everyone, I am new to the forum and could use some help finding my first firearm. Right now I am using a Sig P226 when I go to the range (which is not mine but am looking to purchase one of my own now).
This firearm will be used for home protection, range and concealed carry (at least until I find a compact revolver I like).
Unfortunately, there is so many different models and manufacturers that it seems pretty overwhelming. I don't mind doing the research but if you could give me a few that fit this description that I should check into, that would be a huge help for me.
The 3 that I am very interested in purchasing are Sig P239, P226 and P229 but Sig is a little on the expensive side for a college student, so if I could find a nice alternative to one of those and save a few hundred that would be great.
Double Action/Single Action
External Safety (Not necessary but would definitely prefer one)
I would consider Double Action Only
I don't have a preference on frame material
