    Reset was never really too important to me; I care more about it with rifles than pistols. I'm a bit of a trigger slapper when it comes to pistols, and I don't even remember the reset when I shoot.

    Buy mine? :)

    Coming in late but if you're looking at single stack 9's with slim grips to fit smaller hands, my wife swears by her Sig P239. She didn't like the fit of anything else we tried (Kahr CM9 and CW9 were next closest). I've shot it, nice gun. No hiccups in the couple of thousand rounds she's put through it.

    My wife doesn't like the trigger on the Sig. She likes the trigger safety with the Glock, hence why I was looking at the Ruger. Yes, I double checked, the P239 is the other gun she shot at the range.

    Then I'd also look at the Springfield XD-S; similar feel to the Glock safety trigger (though the functional mechanics are actually quite different), different ergonomics than the Glock. Nice shooting little gun - too small for my hands, I've ditched all my single-stacks. I do carry the XD 9mm sub-compact and own several XD models.

    No money to buy another 1911 right now, new or used. Trying to save my pennies to go back to school.

    I never really got good grades in school and I dropped out of community college when I was younger. I want to go back to community and just start doing things and see if I figure out what I want to do from there.

    Rio Salado and South Mountain Community are good starts. Make sure you contact ASU or whatever University you plan to attend. The counselors suck at the CC level. You'll end up with an Associates and half your credits won't work.


    Anyway, after trying many different guns, we ended up with a Budget 9mm. She liked the weight, the trigger pull, the ease of break down and the accuracy. So, we just purchased:

    Smith and Wesson SD9 VE
    Nice little gun, fun to shoot, feels a tad cheap, but I like the construction and she likes the gun. If it keeps her shooting, we can move up to a better one with all of the perks. I was actually surprised at how light the gun was after shooting the .45 for so long.

    Honestly that is a pretty decent, beginner friendly entry handgun. Don't listen to the naysayers about the double action pull. If you learn to shoot well with a long pull, you'll be even better with a single action pull.

    Thanks. That was one of the things I saw people complaining about, but I decided whatever. She's a beginner and it'll make learning easier. Good to know a gun expert thinks it is a decent beginner gun.
