Ruger. Or look for a used S&W Shield.

ec9s all the way. i love my lc9s and apparently the only difference is the the machined sights. the trigger is my favorite of all the it's competitors. the shield has a better grip imo but that's also because it's wider, at less than an inch you can't beat the concealability. seriously though i can't praise the trigger enough, it breaks like fucking glass. the reset leaves something to be desired but it's still pretty good.

Friends don't let friends buy Taurus. Especially since the S&W M&P is so cheap.

Could you tell me why? I haven’t shot a Taurus but, as one of my comments has pointed out, I’m considering purchasing one. I’ve shot a shield and found it hard to consistently shoot accurately. By no means am I an expert shooter, in fact I’d say I’m a novice. But, I can consistently shoot my PX4 storm and my buddies glock 17 fairly well. Can that be attributed to the weight of those bigger pistols compared to a lighter more concealable firearm?

This is the only correct answer. A PT111G2 is the only good "budget" option readily available. Contrary to snobbish contrary comments, the PT1111G2 is universally well accepted and functions very well. It's accurate and extremely reliable. No one who has actually used one has anything bad to say about it. My wife's weapon has several thousands rounds through it without issue. This is by far normal for this weapon.

You can frequently find excellent deals on this weapon. But even at normal prices you can frequently get it for less $250 + FFL out the door. My wife bought hers for $245, including FFL, years ago. Better deals are frequent and common.

Anyone who says anything contrary here is proving they have no credibility on firearms. They instead have decided brand loyalty is more important than quality or reliability. Which means they have no opinion of importance and are incapable of thinking for themselves.

The only legitimate complaint is that some people don't like the trigger. It's not a problem in anyway nor is it bad. It's just different with long-ish travel.

Random search search, but this review is typical of all PT111G2 reviews: http://www.thetruthaboutguns.com/2013/04/tyler-kee/gun-review-taurus-millenium-g2-9-mm/

The weapon universally reviews and performs excellent. Good tolerances, fit, and finish. It's the definition of good budget buys.

It's not the "only" answer if the dude has $300 to spend. I liked my g2 quite a bit, but with $100 more I'd rather have a shield or lc9.

I've had all 3 and so far the taurus was the only one to ever FTE.

just no. Taurus is garbage. Some people get lucky and don't have issues - but others get bent over and screwed by their horrible quality control AND then get the curse of dealing with their shit-tier customer service. When your taurus goes back for warranty work, there's maybe a 25% change it gets fixed and you're good to go, 50% chance they fix the original issue and/or introduce a new one, and 25% chance they don't fix it, and it is now worse than before if / when you ever get it back.

Don't look only at spec sheets - go to a gun store, and put them in your hand, work the slide, try the trigger, etc.

I'd recommend you look at the following, some of which are a bit beyond 300, but worth looking at:

    • Ruger lcp (get the custom if you like the lcp, it's much better for not much more)
    • Ruger lc9s
    • Ruger SR9 / SR9c
    • S&W Shield
    • S&W M&P
    • Springfield xds
    • Sig 365 ( a bit pricier, but worth considering)
    • Glock 42
    • Glock 43
    • LE-trade in Glock 19/23 or 26/27
    • CZ P07
    • CZ P01
    • Canik TP9SF Elite
    • Walther CCP
    • Walther PPS
    • FNS-9

How firm is that $300 limit? You can certainly go with either of those options, and of the two I'd take the Ruger....but you can get a Smith-Wesson Shield in 9mm for $375 off buds guns all day long. You can find it even cheaper using the search on gun.deals. If you can swing it'd go with the Shield for sure.

Love my 1st Gen Shield 9mm. I paid under $300 new before the 2.0 came out so maybe a used gen 1. Or maybe a hi-point, but wear a cup if carrying AIWB. lol

I second this. Reliable and extremely accurate for such a short barrel. And priced great.

https://www.cabelas.com/product/TAURUS-PT-MILL-PRO-G/1954878.uts I myself am considering the purchase of this gun. Before jewtube went full retard I viewed a few reviews on it, and it seems to perform nicely.

Was going to post this... for 2.0 Hi-Points it seems legit for those on a very tight budget. Oh and you can get the price lower with Raise.com gift cards, or Ebay gift cards.

In the winter a Colt Combat Commander in a shoulder holster perfectly concealed under a jacket, summer a micro Ruger .380 with a belt clip under a untucked shirt. The Commander is not a cheap carry, the Ruger is and I have complete confidence in it even though its a mouse gun with a shitty trigger and no sights.

I don't mind the Ruger, all it has to do is shoot one time and I'm good, and it will do that. Cheap and an easy carry, weighs 11oz. you don't even know its there. I prefer the .45. Its a heavy carry on the waistband.

I'd get an lc9/ec9 or a shield for that price.
