I am looking to purchase a first handgun and need help deciding which. Well I turn 21 in about a month and a week and plan on purchasing a handgun when I can. I have little gun experience shooting handguns, only a Magnum Research .22 and an older Glock 17. I did not like the feel of the Glock much. Other than that I have plenty of rifle experience if that matters(ie. owning an AR15, Mosin, 12 guage, 44 mag lever action, AK build in process, and few more). I do plan on purchasing a membership at the handgun range and want to test fire and fit them. But I would like to get an idea of what you guys think would be good choices so I can hunt those guns down knowing where I can purchase them at. Here are some of the factors pertaining to my gun choices: -I live in CA, restricting magazine capacity to 10 rounds. -I have very long hands, not wide but able to palm a basketball while bouncing in air. -I *think* I want a 9mm as it will only be my first handgun. Primary use will be to learn the handgun well with relatively cheap ammo being a range gun. I guess it could be a self-defense but I do have a shotgun for that. -I was thinking of CCW more as a vehicle gun for extended safety (my county is shall issue and I know a higher up in the Sheriff's department to help me with good reasons) -Used will not be a problem, as I was thinking Sig CPO, used USP, XD, 1911, all depending on the ergonomics to my hand and how the overall feel while shooting. -Budget is ~$700. The less I spend the better but I want a great first handgun to teach me the basics and last me forever. What I have been eyeing on so far is Sig 226 9mm, XD9, USP9, 1911. I hope I gave enough details, and sorry about the long post. Much appreciated in advance, Mark.
