I plan a purchasing a semi-auto pistol soon and am looking for a reasonably priced model. Looking at the Taurus, Smith and Wesson, Sig etc. Caliber will be .40 S&W I most likely will go with a polymer frame, 4" minimum barrel, and don't care if it is a stainless or chrome moly slide. I have never owed a semi auto only revolvers so looking for input. Used for home defense amd concel/carry when get certified (if I need to carry) and tracking pigs and other animals in the South Texas brush. I'm 6'5" so I have larger than average hands.
