Best metal gun?
I'm wanting a metal frame handgun as a "legacy" weapon for my family and have managed to cross off the more popular ones based on reading the following:
>crap trigger, mag safety, hammer bite
>Just don't want a Czech gun as an heirloom piece, please forgive.
>By all rights should be a single stack .45, don't want a .45 because expensive to shoot and lower capacity.
>Slide mounted safety (yuk), fixed barrel (allows ammo weight to effect POI elevation more)
>Slide mounted safety again
>I'm left handed, fuck sig.
>Contrary to the meme, I don't like 10mm, ammo too hard to come across, too expensive.
>Very loud and big and expensive, msrp starts like $1400, yikes!
So that leaves: Jericho, Kahr t9, EAA Witness.. nothing that excites.
Maybe I should just get a p30 with a threaded barrel and work on getting a silencer?
If you think .45acp is expensive to shoot, you probably can't afford any of the options you listed.
If you shoot enough that ammo is a more significant cost than the gun itself, you should be reloading. Dillon 650 press with the case feeder will make quick work of a few hundred rounds
I started reloading .44mag but had a couple primers fail to ignite. That bothers me, even more in a revolver. The failure rate has been maybe 2% or less, that's too many.
Not sure if all reloading is like that or I just got old primers from the LGS, not sure.
Lefthanded shooter here
Sphinx 2000 or 3000 is a Solid choice if you can find one.
Interesting, the grip being polymer is weird.

>.45 is expensive
>ammo is expensive
>southpaw, complains about sig
You're retarded. Everything you have said proves it.
Try having an open mind. Lurk for a few more months, and get some real-world experience. Then perhaps you should come around to this question again.
I don't want a shitty grandpa like you to hand down your spergy, uninformed, and illogical taste in firearms.
Holy fuck. Once again, your retardation knows no limits. The SDP isn't a real Sphinx. Tupperware guns aren't heirloom quality, with one or two exceptions. We're 200 years early for that one.
Had some hope for this thread when I saw the Tangfolio Hunter, but I was led astray.
>I don't want
You're just a hi-power fanboy faggot. You join their little cult did you? Your isolated faggot ass want to be part of a group identity so bad that you threw in 100% to the hi-power sperglords? Can't admit that the trigger is shit, the pointy slide is ugly and the gun generally sucks?
QQ, cry me a river princess.
Hard to be a fanboy when I don't own one.
The things he's complaining about are basic-bitch "I have never fired this firearm in real life so I instead believe what I read online" bullshit. Hammer bite is an individual matter, I have never once in my time had it become a problem with any firearm. There are other types of hammers for the Hi-Power as well, if that's your gig. Magazine safeties are easy as fuck to disable on most designs, this one included. 20min in the garage at most (mind-blown! didn't consider home gunsmithing, did you?). If you are an incapable pansy victim like OP you can have it sent off to a professional, or just complain and make blog posts on /k/. I've never had a problem with Hi-Power triggers, either. If you do have a problem, guess what. You can fucking modify that too.
OP is far too new to this hobby to be picking out a heirloom.
I understand price may be a concern but consider the fact that you intend this as a family heirloom.
This pistol will be your legacy, the item by which your name will be remembered for generations to come. Dont leave a legacy of being cheap, save for a little while longer and get a piece you and your kin can carry with pride
Once you climb above basement level Tanfoglio, you have some seriously good bang for the buck, but nothing I'd consider a legacy with the exception of the Hunter 10mm so you can play Robocop at Halloween
I'm left handed too. I love my P226, mainly cuz it feels great in my hands and there's nothing on the right side of the gun that my thumbs can fuck with while shooting.
The controls are fine for lefties: you can use the decocker with your trigger finger and the slide stop is in the same place as Glocks.
Check one out
This. I have absolutely no issues working a P225 or a P230 as a lefty. OP needs to get out and try some more firearms. 50 rounds isn't enough to even begin to form an opinion, much less reading reviews online.
Left-handed shooters have it worse, because they need to determine how they use the controls. That takes time with unfamiliar designs. Sometimes a firearm being broken in or not is the difference. I can work the safety on broken-in CZs with my trigger finger, but on new ones it's too tight. Consider things like that. Depending on how you want to use the firearm, it may not matter.
"I need help making a theoretical purchase.
I'm a fucking idiot, so here are a few reasons I don't want the best options:
Please find a bunch of B list shit options for me to choose from
>The things he's complaining about are basic-bitch "I have never fired this firearm in real life so I instead believe what I read online"
As stated in the OP. It isn't realistic for most of us to shoot every option of gun.
>Hammer bite is an individual matter, I have never once in my time had it become a problem with any firearm
You must have little bitch hands. You're probably short too, good for you. I have had hammer bite from guns I've owned.
>You can alter and change the design of the gun to make it suck less.
Well no shit, it still sucks though, fanboy.
>third one isn't true unless you've got big hangs.
I have big hangs.
>Please find a bunch of B list shit options for me to choose from
Now you are getting it.
