Hello everyone, just wanted to get a few of your opinions. I'm a new CCW holder and am looking for the right gun for a carry, I plan on getting more a nice collection of hand guns further down the road, I however only own rifles as of now, although I have shot many different types of handguns and rifles.
I am considering 1 of 3 guns as of now, a Sig Sauer P226, or the P228, also am growing quite fond of the Kahr PM9. looking for 9mm luger caliber in any of the above handguns.
I understand the P226 is a amazing gun, and have read a lot of possitive things about it Reliable, Durable, quality made, however it is a full size gun and I wonder how it would work out as a concealed carry. The P228 is the compact version of the 226 so I've read and it seems like a good choice however it doesen't hold the same track record as its big brother.
the Kahr seems well made and real similar to a Glock. I have held the Kahr at the gun shops and it feels good in the hand and the trigger action is amazing. Although it is a bit pricey. however the polymer would be a nice thing to have in a carry also.
I am looking to spend around $500 or below, so obvisouly a used gun will have to work.
what should I look for in a used handgun? besides the obvious, bore condiction, action, and trigger pull?
any helpful advice would greatly be appreciated.
oh I am average build for a 24 year old, about 6 foot tall, 170 ibs. a full size pistol fits my hands perfectly. I can also hold and shoot a compact gun with no problems as well.
thanks in advance
