Current 9mm auto recommendations?
I have finally decided to buy a 9mm semi auto handgun. I deer hunt with the Ruger Super Blackhawk (.44) in the midwest brush, take a Ruger MKII to the local ranges, hunt birds with a vintage Franchi 12ga. I researched 9mm and was surprised at the actual performance…and comparative price of ammunition vs 44 mag.
There are composite designs, steel frames; there are 1911 designs, and other variants.
This is not a concealed carry, $1000 max, as accurate as the MKII, I think I would like an adjustable rear sight? I think I would like a barrel longer than 4in? Absolute reliability.
Any pros and cons of what is available that fit most or all of those criteria? Cost? I own Rugers but have no brand preference.
