I have purchased about 15 "brand new" handguns in the last 10+ years from many different manufacturers. The one that stands out for me as the best value is the RUGER SR9C. I paid $309 for it NIB. I believe it's one of Rugers finest moments. It's everything a handgun should be. It's a great carry or home defense weapon with it's supplied 10 & 17 rd mags. It's dependable accurate and built to last a lifetime. It's extremely well balanced and very easy to shoot accurately. I have yet to find ammo it doesn't like and has well over 3000 rds through and still looks like the day I brought it, shows no wear at all.
