Honest I do. :whistle:
I want a full size 9mm with a good trigger that can be taught to put every round in a spot the size of a quarter with very little effort on my part.
I was thinking about my old XD that will thread needles all day, but chucks hot brass in my face making it unpleasant to shoot.
Maybe I could get a new XD?
Any suggestions?
I don't want to sell a kidney, so $400ish or less is my target price range.

My nephew has a M&P Pro and it shoots nice. I've got a Sigma that shoots pretty good too. I've shot USPSA with my Sigma and did ok, it shoots better than I do. I have an apex trigger kit in it but it's still a bit heavy.

I've got a Sigma too.
How do you like the Apex trigger?
Is it worth the money?

How 'bout a Beretta? These are both at about $350 right now...no reserve. They will likely go much higher,
but ya might get lucky!!! I have one of these and like it...

Got my trigger pull down around 7 pounds. I did have to go back to the stock firing pin spring because I was getting light strikes.

The most accurate handgun I've owned is a Tanfoglio Witness. Hands down , the smoothest, quickest gun I've ever shot. Keep in mind, I've never shot any $1000 pistols. I'm a budget firearm guy. The Witness is the same design as the the Tanfoglio the 5 time world champion pistol racing winner used. Brands are like religion to some people, so you'll get plenty of strong opinions. Shooting walnuts at 21ft...under $400...works for me.

Can it actually be presumed that each gun off the assembly line will be as accurate as the others? :dunno:
