What type/platform of firearm are you wanting? What's its intended purpose(s)?

if you have the nano, why look at the shield too? it fills practically the same role.

Well if your goal is just to pile up interesting 9mm stuff, I see you already have a CharterArms, you might look into getting the 9mm PITBULL.

Browning Hi-Powers are classic.

I'm partial to Lugers.

I would get a Beretta M9. Then you can have the size and weight of a full size 40 or 45 auto, with the lower recoil and lower effectiveness of the 9mm.

Glad you are enjoying your 9's. We are lucky to have 9mm rounding out the 9 vs 40 vs 45 debate. If the debate were 380 vs 40 vs 45, 380 would really be too weak.

What about a "compact" sized gun? From your signature, you might be well off with a striker fired polymer gun. Examples would be the walther ppq, glock 19, M&Pc, etc. They're all still relatively easy to conceal while being easier to handle.


Edit: Just noticed your budget of $500. My suggestions can be found in that price range (or used to a few months ago) but will be at the top end of that $500 limit. They're all well worth it, but its up to you if you feel comfortable being at your set limit.
