Plus the last few guns I bought were blued (tennifer, etc.) and it is time to catch my collection up with a stainless version.

The EMP is now available but, only in limited qauntities for the near future and with a price around $1000.00 I have not read or heard anything about its reliability and functioning yet. I know you said you want stainless but, Beretta will be releasing their new PX4 compact soon and it looks awesome. Check it out at Berettaweb.com
I'm going to pick one of those up as soon as I can.
Walther 1..how bout a Taurus millenium pro pt 111 in stainless over comp. 12 round mag....way under 600.00...just thinkun...
got yourself $600.00 to spend. then i would get a kel-tec p11 and with the rest of the money i would buy lots of 9mm ammo, a good holster, and the kel-tec belt clip. or,,, you could get a glock 26 and/or 19 (but you will not have money to but ammo and holster). now i known that both gun are not stainless, but if you wipe the gun down once a week you will not have any problems.
I went to the store today and looked at many different handguns. I liked the Warthog from Para ordnance. I also like the Taurus MIllenium Pro. I guess what I am looking for is something I like but do no love. I really liked the CZ 75 (only held blued version not compact) but am unfamiliar with the company. I am a little hesitant on buying something like CZ with not much familiarity.
As for Glock, (response to Simon) I like them, but an uncertain about owning one. i really like the Glock 26 but am not in love with it. The guns I own I love and those are ones I would bet my life on.
Thanks for everyone's comments. It is great that you guys are getting me to think. I would have never considered Para or CZ, but now I am thinking.
The Para sounds good to me.
Have Fun and Shoot Straight !!
Either the Kahr K9 or one of the CZs.
Have you considered the new 9mmP Springfield mini 1911? It is written up in Shooting Times this month. It is more than a bit pricy, but it looks pretty good if you like the 1911 type of pistol.
Heard the Springfield 1911 9mm was over $1000!
That is starting to get serious! I liked that gun a lot though. I am really leaning on getting a CZ 75 B stainless.
I know the CZ75B stainless is full size (kinda wanted a compact gun) but I am sure I will be able to find a way to hide it. I just have to start thinking (IWB, belly band, etc.).
Thanks again for all the comments.
First auto I bought is a CZ-75 Compact 9mm. I like the Gun. I've fired about 500 rounds with no FTF.
It would have been nice to shoot some other guns though. There is a range in town where I could have rented some and checked them out. After reading more about Glocks, I'm wanting one of those too.
CZ is a good gun, but if you have a range you can rent a gun at you might want to shoot the Glock and some others.
