since you already own and liked the Berreta 92, in your price range I would recommend the Berreta PX4. very similar controls, DA/SA operation just like the 92 and in my brief experience with one, very accurate, very low recoil and not a bad gun overall.
I never did like the slide mounted safeties that berreta seems so fond of but I would recommend the PX4 all day long for anyone looking for a decently priced DA/SA design.
my favorite DA/SA is the Sig P226 but that is nearly double your budget unless you get a good deal on a used one. the PX4 is a good second pic in my opinion.
