I have a Baby Eagle 9mm, full size, steel frame etc. (You already read my other post)

Anyway, I like (love) mine quite a bit, its accurate and very solid, although they are on the heavy side. If only I could cure the FTF issues that happen after a few hundred rounds.

If you dont want to spend an arm and a leg on ammo, I think you know the answer...9mm.
These are dependable guns, I dont think my issues are too common, and I am sure you will not be disappointed.

I just got my Baby Eagle in 9mm today as a christmas gift. I put about 50 rounds through it and it shoots great!

This is really my first handgun, so 9mm is a good round for me because of the lower recoil.

But I probably would have preferred the .40

I'd go with a 45 or 9mm just because thats what you already have ammo for. I love my Baby Eagle. It's my primary handgun and always will be as long as I have a choice in what I can carry.

The short and simple of it. I trust it to preform when shit goes bad and my ass is potentialy on the line. BTDT this year already.

Have a Baby .40 all steel full size. No real complaints except the trigger pull is wierd. Not too sharp in the terminology, but when the hammer is cocked and I pull the trigger very slowly, I feel this bump where the hammer actually drops from the cocked position to the heavy "double action" position. To make the gun fire, I have to pull through this to the point where the hammer falls properly. If I release the trigger at this point, the hammer moves to the half-cock position. It only does this when I shoot right handed, and is mostly dependent on how I pull the trigger.

Are you a right handed shooter or left? If a lefty then it could ben because of that. I know I had problems with my trigger press when shooting weak hand(left for me) when I first started working on weak hand shooting. But nothing like the hammer drpping into a half cock. A lot of my pistol shooting problems went away after I took my first pistol class. Anyway it sounds like something mechnicly wrong in the gun execpt for the only happening when shooting right handed.

I have the full size steel in 9mm and .45, rock solid, great shooters for the money.

GunsAmerica.com is another good place to look. I got my BDE (Compact) 9mm for about $335 plus s&h; I kept an eye on the different designs of 9mms, decided what I wanted, then pounced when I saw a good price!
Turns out that the seller (probably) had a strong tendency to pull to the left; the rear sight was drifted about 1/8" from the centerline! I had it returned to its rightful place in the world and now the world is happy.
I shot it about 200-250 times without an "in-use" failure. The only failure I experienced was ftf when I s-l-o-w-l-y slid the slide down on a Hydroshok round; it wouldn't feed. hen
The reason I went so long w/o cleaning was to test its dependability. Needless to say, now I clean it religiously after every shoot, as it is my primary carry weapon. (NM CCW is pending.)
