I am partial to my EDC XD40 SC followed by my S&W M&P 40 Compact. Both have been flawless.

This is what I look for in a practical carry pistol:

- Reliability

- Ergonomic design

- No external safety to mess with or snag on clothing

- Striker fired

- Usable sights

- Affordable ammunition, magazines, and accessories

If you're partial to SIG's or HK's there a tariff attached to those options. They're nice pistols, but the Glock and M&P do the job at a lower price point.
Someone beat me to it but M&P would fit the mold here. Glock is a solid option too.

Another reason I acquired a 9mm is ammo is cheap. Recoil is not an issue. The 9mm is just as easy to shoot as a 22LR. I am not to keen on the 40 cal. If I am going to pay high prices for ammo I want magnum power. I would get a 10mm before a 40cal. You might consider a 9mm for a range gun and keep carrying your sig.
