Default Help Me Decide

Well folks this is going to be my first post so please bear with me! I turn 21 on Christmas day and will be receiving my LCTF (Pennsylvania permit) by the 28th. I already own a Beretta 92fs Compact that used to be my dads duty pistol. I also will be receiving a Glock 19 on the 25th as a xmas/bday gift. I plan on ordering a Kahr CM 9 pistol to use as a BUG or deep concealment piece. My goal is to have several pistols for different types of weather and levels of concealment. I have about another 500$ to spend on another pistol. What would you buy to complement the pistols I will already have?

I recommend the S&W Shield in 9mm over the kahr. I had a cm9, good gun, but I definitely like my shield much better. All around more comfortable ergonomically, better trigger with less work, more accurate, among other attributes. I also own a G19, (personal favorite) sold my G17 to my brother because he begged me for it. Now, I want a 1911.

Collections are nice if they are all quality firearms.

To amass a multitude of firearms is not creating a collection, just gathering.

Consider your needs. As a fairly new shooter, you probably do not understand the importance of muscle memory in regards for firearms.
(In other words, consider getting those with the same controls in the same position).

Is the G17 large enough to justify buying it even though I will already have a G19?

I have shot the Kahr and loved it. I have not been able to locate a Shield to try out yet. I love 1911s but for now I want to stay in the 9mm market. Does anyone have experience with a 9mm 1911 in my price range?

RIA has a 9mm and those are inexpensive 1911s.

This is some of the best information to ever be handed out for free.
