    [QUOTE=Equilibrium;3488774]Carrying it overseas and at home, I recommend the old .45.

    Although new, lighter, composite material weapons are popular new in the "tacti-cool"- "you can never have too many flashlights/ targetsights/ rangefinders" attachment age, the .45 carries enough weight to give the user confidence and the reliability of almost a century of battlefield experience.

    I stick with the classics. Thankfully, I have never had to use it in anger, but the feeling of stability, reliability and double safety features always gives me confidence when I have to carry it and is easy to clean, unlike the M9 Beretta that replaced it.

    I have also fired the HK SOCOM .45 sidearm, but I think that weapon demands considerable skill from the shooter and is fabricated to such exact quality that the slightest wear affects its reliability. Not to mention it is a very expensive firearm on the civilian market.[/QUOTE]

    I agree with everything you say here except the bit about the Beretta. I carry one, and I find it to be well-balanced with a good heft. It's also pretty easy to break down and clean. Believe me, I intend to get a .45 at some point (likely a Kimber model), but I wouldn't give up my Beretta, not a chance.

    Glock is a reliable and simple gun, for a novice it is a great gun and won't kill your wallet.

    I carry a glock 27 off duty. Definitely will not kill your wallet. Not my first choice for a backup though. Only reason I got it is because it's so cheap, had it for 5 years so far, uncomfortable at times but I deal with it.

    Me too, can't complain about it, the sub-compact .45 is pretty nice too.

    Perhaps I was a bit harsh on the Beretta. It a good weapon for its purpose as a the standard general purpose sidearm and carries more rounds and penetrates more effectively than the .45.

    I just tend to favor stopping power over firepower. With a .45, even if the target is wearing body armor, there is a good chance he or she will at least be knocked down.

    I also had an experience with a recoil malfunction where the slide misaligned from the frame and was subsequently told that it was a not too infrequent occurrence.

    I'm not a huge fan of the Glock, it kicks too much because it is so light.

    Can't have a limp wrist. Sorry had to say it. :D

    It is a very accurate pistol.

    Absolutely. That's why I said it wasn't my first choice, but it was cheap. You pay for what you get.

    You bastard :D I generally do better with heavy barreled revolvers. Not that I can't hit with the Glock, but I can drive tacks with my .22.

    What, in your opinion, is the best handgun that can be bought new for under $700?

    I suggest 9mm Beretta. Alot of people hate on it and it's the only handgun I've ever fired (M-16 and SAW are "weapons", M-60 and I assume 240B are guns but not handguns) but it's accurate, easy to use easy to maintain and looks cool.

    You can definitely get a 1911 for under $700. I love it. Once you start customizing it more and more you'll treat it like a Rolex.

    [QUOTE=Illinois Jets Fan;3492265]Springfield?[/QUOTE]

    Hey, I'm new here but I'd like to add to this.

    I have a Springfield 1911 .45 and it is great. It was about $900 with the night sights but hand down my favorite .45 cal.
    Springfield also makes the XD M and the reviews are great. I fired a few different versions and the 9mm is probably my favorite because of the capacity (20 rnds with one in the tube).

    That's great, thanks for sharing. It'll probably be awhile before I can spend $900 on a gun, but this info is useful for when I'm raking in the $$$.
