I am a newbie here, so this will be my first post.
Recently got back into shooting. I had grown up in the Boy Scouts shooting at least a few times a year. I recently purchased my first and second guns, a .38 and .22. I just signed up for the ohio ccw course at the end of the month and I am looking forward to it.
So I started my search for a carry gun. Since my 2 current guns are revolvers, I tried a Ruger SP-101 at a local range...but made the mistake of shooting .357 out of the snubby. Nice gun, but it really beat my hand up. I'm sure .38 would not be bad. Then I priced one...the poor college student thing is not liking the 400+ price tag I saw at one of the stores.
So I started my search for a small/compact 9mm. Went to Vance's in Central Ohio and they were awesome showing me around and giving me ideas. I found a 3913 I really liked, a local PD trade, and had a good price. Got a chance to go to the range and try one. I was very impressed. Easy to use gun, very good groups and only one minor issue, which was corrected by the range with a quick cleaning.
I'm pretty much sold on the gun and was wondering what others thought of this semi-auto. I have heard good things about reliabilty, it fits well for me. The aftermarket support for grips, holsters, parts etc seems good as well.
any thoughts are welcome and much appreciated...
