    The pistol you've described is modestly priced and reliable. Not as mainstream as some other guns. You may run into difficulty if you need parts or gunsmithing. Similarly priced 40 calibers are from Taurus, Bersa and EAA.

    From $400 to $550, there's a bunch of nice 40 calibers with a larger following. CZ 75, Glock 22/23, Smith & Wesson M&P, Springfield XD. I recently bought a Glock 23, but I could have easily bought any of the others.

    If you have the opportunity, try them out before you buy. Grip is a critical component for pistol choices. If you have smaller hands, think about the M&P and the Springfield.

    I've had one for quite a while and it's an excellent firearm. The one I have is the full-size all-steel model. Quite accurate and reliable. It's a DA/SA with safety/decocker, so there's no way to carry cocked and locked. I like the grip angle of this pistol, and have have always found it quite comfortable to shoot. Of course, the one I have is not a lightweight, so that probably takes some of the snappiness out of the .40 S&W. Newer models can also be had in a compact, composite format, with the picatinny rail as well. I think they're a good value.

    Mine now lives in my office desk drawer for handy access.

    Cheers,
    Rod

    My Baby Eagle is now the house gun with an M6 flashlight/laser attached under the barrel with an aftermarket rail adapter. It's probably the most comfortable handgun to shoot that I've got. It's one of the steel framed ones and a bit heavy for everyday carry but if I had a polymer framed one I'd carry it. I like my Sig but love that Baby Eagle. Both have never had a miss fire or jam.
