    I still have not seen the best advice given by anyone.......and that is to have your employee go to several ranges and spend the money to rent a few guns to shoot and see what HE or SHE feel comfortable shooting with and then go from there. I would hate for them to purchase something without trying it and then end up hating it and then wasting their hard earned money. God Bless

    That's what I paid for my M84W brand new - but that was 34 years ago!

    The Ruger p95 has the beauty of a cinder block, but my p95 has been 100% reliable with all type's of ammo. I can't say that about the one I paid $1100 for.

    Pick up a 2" EAA Windicator in .357Mag for $300. Can't beat a .357Mag...

    Please take everything I say with at least one grain of salt- I am a very sarcastic person with a very dry sense of humor.

    I was going to mention 3rd Gen. Smith LE trade in's, but people beat me to it. These guns were legendary and many people think S&W really messed up dropping them from production, (actually I think they still make 3rd Gen. Smith's for police contracts on a limited basis).

    While the M&P's are nice, these guns were built to take anything thrown at them and did so with class. The LE trade in's are in great shape from what I've seen.

    I would also suggest he go to a range and rent a few guns to find out which one is best for him. My local gun range has about 120 guns to rent and I never run out of reasons not to shoot one or two that look interesting... That's how I decided to go with my current CC

    If I wanted to go really cheap, I'd probably buy a used CZ 82.

    I was just at a gunshop here in the Portland, Oregon area and they had a used Ruger P95 for $300. I was tempted but my hand was just too small for it. I was bummed.

    I also agree with many people's recommendation of a 5906. Also, Sig SP2022 can be had brand new for less than $400. Top notch gun from a top notch brand.
