Going to gun show this weekend with $500

I have been around guns my whole life but haven't owned one in years. I am looking for a 9mm or .40 for $500 max and I want to find the most accurate and reliable handgun I can for the money. I really like the SA XD9 & XD40 but have never actually fired one. I know that it all depends on what you feel comfortable with but with all that being equal what (in your personal experience) would be the best choice?

I have a friend selling a SW9P with holster and 4 mags for $350 but I've heard a lot of negative things about their accuracy, trigger, and reliability and general quality overall.

Please give me a few guns to keep an eye out for and a good price point. Also, any comments on the XD are appreciated. Thanks for the help!

I'm a Glock fan, but I also have the XD40 subbie, love it....
It's got 1,000's of rounds thru it w/o an issue.

How much accuracy do you loose going from the standard 4" vs the 3" sub?

i have an xd9 sc and love it. Mine only has roughly 500 rounds through it as of now. I paid about 480 out the door for mine at a christmas sale that Turners had this past christmas.

GlockTober at Turners (in October) is always a good buy
