best 9mm pistol for >$400?

I pretty much have my heart set on the Taurus 24/7 Pro in 9mm, but noticed recently a couple other pieces that deserve mention. The CZ P07 Duty gets a healthy nod...as does the EAA beretta lookalike.

If you have 400 OUT THE DOOR, anything else you would request to feel out at the gun shop?

Since you're looking at the Taurus, I assume you mean less than <$400, not greater than >$400.

My opinion is any used Glock.

I agree with Zimmer50cal on the Glock thingy and the less than greater than sign.

I did this same research once and ended up with a CZ.

Save about $50 more and get a Glock 19

Bought my M&P used for 4 and a quarter. A lil bit more than what you're looking for but not much really.
I'm not sure how you feel about used guns but I've been finding alot of BARELY used ones coming into the local gunshop here.
My M&P looked as if it was never even taken out of the original box.

Used Glocks and XD's can be had for pretty much the same price also.

A Glock 19 or the smaller Glock 26 will serve you very well. Remember that the smaller Glocks can use the higher capacity magazines (e.g. 19 or 17 magazines).

I love my 19 and its easy to conceal, not as easy as the 26, but easy enough and without giving up any accuracy.

Re: best 9mm pistol for >$400?

i wish i liked the way the glock felt in my hand. i can't shoot them well, they just don't fit. I did handle a new Ruger sp today, nice and light, thin, seems to be a nice pistol...time will tell.

and yeah...sorry about the typo... LESS than 400 bills...

Have you handled the M&P? I like the way it feels, but everyone is different. I had a Para .45 in my hand the other day and it felt sweet, you know when your holding the right one for yourself. Go handle them all. Your going to get recomendations for all different types, but in the end its whatever your happy with.
