Glock is a reasonable choice for around $400. Khar and KelTec are others. I hate Glocks, but I have no problem suggesting them...
People who are new to carrying seem to get stuck on the safety/no safety issue. This stuff has been thought about before! Double action triggers, firing pin blocks, and the like exist for a reason. I only use the safeties on my 1911s and when carrying my USP in condition one.
Ha, I am far from a thug, I can assure you that. And I know that it is safe to carry with out a manual safety, its just the thought of it because I am new, like I said I won't choose a firearm over another because of that reason. I would rather get the better of the two whatever it may be and then just get used to the idea, which I am sure wouldn't be too difficult. Thanks for the input!
