Don't want a 40 S&W because I don't like the round is high pressure and not that awesome -

I like the M&P 45 and would look at the XD too. The Glock will not fit my hand.

Look at a glock 30sf in that case, thinner grip front to back and fits most people alot better.

I have not tried the XDs, but you might want to take a look if you are looking for something easier to pack around (we do have at least one forum member who wrangled a carry permit in commiefornia).

The XD compact is a little bigger and a bit fatter: http://springfield-armory.com/xd.php?version=111

I hasve a SIG P220, a 1911 and a Glock 21. I like them all.

But the SIG just stands head and shoulders above the others. I'd just buy a SIG and be done with it.

First off, my condolences about the move. I wish you well. Second, the Sig 220 is phenomenal. Never had a problem with any ammo. Even after boxes of that cheap dirty stuff. Feels great, and I can shoot it much better than any 9.

Default Picking a 45 auto

Not an easy decision to make. I have two 1911's and a Glock 21 and enjoy them both. Had a Sig 220 yrs ago and loved it. If you can find a range that rents different guns: give them all a try. By the way, the Sig 229 mentioned earlier only comes in 9mm; 40 S&W and 357 Sig calibers. I have the 357 Sig. You may want to check out the Glock 45 GAP on the Glock web site. Good luck, Dogwalk

Thanks guys - when I said the Glock doesn't fit my hand - it is the grip angle that causes me fits - I carried a S&W 1076 as a duty gun as a Deputy Sheriff in Spokane, so it is not the size of the grip - rather the angle.

Will look at different models - plan on getting one here in TX before I move to CA so I don't have to worry about whether it is on the DOJ "Safe" List

Or I could just by 10 rd magazines for my SD9 and live with just 10 rds of 9mm
