I am looking for recommendations from people for a pistol to use on-duty, and just to have. I am looking for something that is bigger then a 9mm but smaller then a 50 caliber rifle shot lol. Here are my preferences: Cost: Not a issue if it's under 2-3 thousand Caliber: Anything about a 9mm Magazine: 15+ shots Size: Any size Brand: Don't care Why do I want it? Mainly for practice, and fun. Secondly, from my understanding once I get the job I am shooting for (Air Force Security Forces) sometimes you can carry your own side-arm, or just have two, and I'd love to have my own. I was wanting my dad's (was my grandpa's) .357 S&W but he won't sell it to me so eh.
