I do however need another handgun. I plan on taking it to the range and practicing and having fun with it a lot. Already have a bulldog that I love. I'm debating whether to take the plunge and get a good full sized auto for home defense, self defense, etc. I am totally new to autos, never even fired one before. But they're practical and have large capacity which I like. If I did go auto, I'm leaning towards a SA/DA like a Beretta as opposed to a Glock, but I do like Glock's reputation. But they're so damn ugly. I really don't like all polymer guns. Other side of the coin...I love revolvers and have shot them many times and feel completely at ease with them. I have a Bulldog that I love, but I prefer Single Actions (although I wouldn't turn down a nice Model 29). But as much as I'd love a Vaquero in 45 colt, it's not the most practical or tactical defensive weapon, although I have no doubt in my ability to use it, having done so many times before. So should I spend roughly 5-600 bucks on a nice Beretta or Sig, for a first auto, or go with a nice Single Action Vaquero or Ulberti, that I'd love shooting, but might not fill all the tactical niches?
Using Tapatalk and the new version apparently has a bug. If there's a picture below, please ignore it. I didn't intentionally add it.
Now to your question. Post #2 is exactly the advice I'd give you. Sig is hard to go wrong with. I have a P238 that I love. That new 9mm is a very nice gun. Go for one with night sights, though they might be standard. Sigs night sights are the best I've ever seen in any lighting.
