Well, I cannot for the life of me find the SR9c or XDM9c in WA that I wanted originally, and I'm getting more than a little impatient. The gunshop here has had a Stoeger Cougar 9mm for a while ($430) and I'm getting more tempted to pick it up. I know it's beretta machinery, but read mixed opinions online. As is usual, net dwellers either swear by them or loathe them. Does anyone have some firsthand experience with it? To either talk me out of it, or give me a green light?
