    Read it.. Sig 290, not many peoples favorite. 320, or a 938 are much better. But, good article.
    Glocks and Kahrs arent my favorite shooters.. Smith and Wesson trigger is in need of help.
    I had a Walther PK380, really liked it, but wife wanted her own 380 ACP, so she sold the Walther PK380 I had, and got a P238 on her own, without my advice..
    And I believe Smith and Wesson own Walther?

    AT $ 289 NIB at the store it is a steal.

    Look it up--
    Do not discount Taurus.

    My choice would be Glock without hesitation.
    Taurus is designed to supply to bad guys who forgot to bring their own gun to the gunfight. There are some silly gooses around here.

    IMO, if someone says forget Hi-Point because they are not good enough is either a gun snob and shouldn't be relied on for gun info or just knows little about guns to begin with. Probably a little of both!

    Paid $280 new for a S&W SD9VE. Goes bang every time. Paid about $350 new for a Shield 9, both excellent and affordable.

    I have a few and they have been great. About 1000 rounds and I feel very confident in my defense.

    Oh, mama, no! I know why you got that rifle for $70. I found out too late that they are very finicky eaters. Bought one brand new for my son for Christmas as his first gun. Been to the range once and he won't waste his time with it anymore. Lucky to get two rounds in a row through it. Found out later that they are more finicky eaters than my mom. More than one person suggested NOT to run any of the bulk target rounds through it. Sorry, there are myriad .22LR guns out there that WILL eat bulk .22LR. I'd spend $99 on a Cricket first before I'd by another 597.

    I would certainly not make that same mistake again. IF I buy another semi-auto .22LR, or any lesser-known semi-auto pistol, I will be sure to research ahead of time to make sure it isn't known as a finicky eater.

    Can't a GP Ruger 38/357 be had for $500?

    How about a Mossberg 12 gauge abou $300 ?

    I just got a synthetic 10-22, my first 22 and even with the crazy taxes and fees it was about $325 with a few extra magazines.

    And a lot of preppers scream Mosin
