Right now I carry a RIA 1911 Officers model or my P-64 and sometimes my CZ-82. I am really looking into getting something in .40 or 9mm Luger. I definitely trust the 9x18, but I only carry ball. I considered a Glock 19 for a while, but Glocks don't really feel right in my hand. In fact, I much prefer a DA/SA style gun; something with an external hammer. I am a student, so I have a lower budget. How are the Bersa 9mms? I also considered the Ruger SR9c although it has no external hammer. Can anyone suggest something that might fit the bill? Small enough for CC, $500 or less, and fun to shoot at the range.
