I would look at the CZ Shadow series, Sig P210, P226, P320, or a 1911.
Personally, I think 1911s generally have the best triggers. They make very nice range guns.

I have a Walther P99. Very nice gun, easy to shoot and accurate.
Your first gun should be a quality one, not a cheap knock off. Buy a gun you can count on, will practice with and be proud to own.

I think you may be onto something. I'm meticulous about language and writing, and I can usually pick up on the syntax of British English, which is common just about anywhere outside the United States. Plus, I don't think many first-time handgun owners immediately focus on shooting at 15-25 yards or have a budget of 1,500 bucks. (I've been doing this a while, and I routinely shoot at seven and 10 yards, as do most people I know; and none of my handguns -- nice ones -- quite broke $1,000.)

No matter, to take the post seriously, I'd recommend a Beretta 92, because it checks all the boxes at about a third of the purported budget.

To the OP, if you are not a troll, I apologize, but any you listed are decent guns. Try them, get your appropriate license (I believe it would be a class B), buy your favorite pistol and enjoy it.
Respectfully, how is that a trolling post?

If you like the CZ, then buy the CZ.

Duh.
