    If there is a better and more accurate 9mm range gun than the Taurus PT92, I haven't had the privilege of firing it. I have owned two of them, and for the monetary investment, you just can't beat the PT92 or PT99, IMHO.

    How much is your budget?

    EAA Witness P = $299
    Ruger P95 = $350
    Hi-Point C9 = $130
    S&W M&P 9fs = $550

    If you're really looking for an affordable to shoot range gun, get a Ruger MKIII.

    Ditto! I do not have a PT99/92 right now but I will be looking for one at the next gun show. I definitely miss it.

    In my opinion, a range gun needs adjustable sights. I love my PT92, but it doesn't come with'em.

    The PT99 does, however, if one can be found.

    I had a S&W M&P full size .45 that was too large to carry but made for an incredible range gun. Fed it light reloads all day long without a single FTF. Good sights, grip is adjustable and it's very accurate. Traded for a new upland autoloader, kinda wish I hadn't.

    I'd like to stay in the $300 range, and I had not considered a .22, so that is something I'll look into. I REALLY like the PT1911 (the brown tone, I'm not sure what to the offical name/model is). It seems to be hard to find them used, sign of a good product if you ask me! Unfortunetnly I know any 1911 in the $300 range just flat out doesn't exist.

    As Gabby Johnson said, "Revrend!"
    You should be able to pick up an 809 for around 350.00 these days. My son got his at Academy a couple months ago for that, I got mine last year this time for 299.00.

    Well I guess it depends on what a "RANGE" gun means to someone?
    to me it would need to be a weapon of sufficient size to have a decent sight radius, have adjustable sights, and be easy on recoil for the shooter.
    I doubt if you will find a 1911 for the 300 range unless you happen across a good used weapon at a steal.
    But now there are a lot of 22 semi autoes /revolvers that fall into that cost and are generally more accurate than the person shooting them.

    HMMM??? Not sure what you mean by brown tone??
    Taurus makes a blue, a stainless steel, and a mix of both (Duo-tone), they did make an AL ( aluminum Alloy) that was gray but it discontinued.
    look below, this is the only finishes that i am aware of that the Pt1911 has came in.

    How about a Browning Hi-Power copy? Lots of fun, feel great. I'd think you could get an Argentine or Hungarian model for about $300.
