I agree with the others who say stick with the name brands. It just takes time and money and time from your training schedule, etc. trying to have extended "break ins" and polish jobs, etc. Look at Glock, SIG, HK, RUGER, S&W and the like. The other brands are not necessarily bad just not the reputation for reliability consistently out of the box. There is a reason they are "name brands" they have earned. Just go find one that fits your budget hands and wearability.
