I currently have a solid stainless, Walther PPK-S as my primary carry weapon. The magazine holds 7+1 rounds. I want to get a new, lighter weight compact 9mm that holds at least 10+1 rounds. I went to "CheaperThanDirt.com" just to get a reference for handguns that are selling for $400.00 or less, and found a list of the manufacturers that fit into the category that I am looking for. Mostly in order of price (low to high) is the following list:
Smith & Wesson
I am interested in your opinions of the brands with the best quality and features for the money, and which brands to stay away from and why. I am willing to spend up to $400 for a decent gun, but cheaper is always good too.
