Default Trying to decide on ccw any help?

I am having a little trouble picking between a few handguns I have been looking at. Any info or insight you have would really help. I am somewhere between a CZ 75D compact regular or PCR model these have been my first choices so far really like the feel and cant find anything bad about them online. Second I have been looking hard at the beretta Px4 storm compact not the subcompact I like the regular compact this also fits like a glove. Third I looked at the Ruger SR9c i really like this one to. These of course are all 9mm that i have been researching. Any help or info yall can give me would be much appriciated. Thanks .

Welcome John,

Cane will be along shortly with some literature for you. Meanwhile, why don't you introduce yourself.

All good solid choices... The Beretta and the CZ are 3 or 4 oz. heavier than the other two... and slightly thicker. Aside from that little difference, they all have good ratings and reputations... Nice "dilemma" to have... Have fun making your choice 'cause you won't be going wrong with that bunch! You can always sell/trade the .45 ammo... so I wouldn't let that particular ammo factor alone affect my decision too much. I always let such decisions simmer for awhile until it eventually becomes (more) clear. One of 'em will probably kinda start callin' out to you...

I generally prefer smaller lighter guns when it comes to CCW decision time... but it's a very personal thing, eh? (Do you have any interest in the CZ RAMI P (polymer)? It's about a half-inch smaller in length and height than the PCR and a couple of oz. lighter... You can use either 10-rd. or 14-rd. mags in it.)

I really have not been to high on the rami don't know why just doesnt impress me much. I really have been giving a hard look at the beretta though feels great rotating barrel seems to help with getting back on target quickly. Also the more I look at the SR9c it draws me in too.

Any help or info yall can give me would be much appriciated. Thanks .
I love my Glock 30. But I wouldn't buy one because I had ammo for it lying around. I'd sell the ammo to help defray the cost of the gun I really wanted. Or trade it for ammo for the gun I got.
