In 9mm, you can buy Glock, CZ, Tangfoglio, Smith & Wesson, Sig Sauer, Sphinx.
Starting price estimated for 9mm depending on make would be $1000SGD. Again it comes back to what the person prefers.
For 9mm in our club, its mainly Glock 17 and CZ SP-01 (Shadow or Phantom), CZ-75/85.
In reality, photography is more expensive. 1DsMKIV is already more than the cost of my Open Gun, 7D would get you a Standard Gun, a 40/50D would get a Production Gun with money to spare ...
Its all relative I feel.
