Glock 26, perfect answer to your question and I dont like glocks but it due the job.

A 3 inch 1911 is perfect for self-defense if you want something with a little more punch.

Right now I will probably just carry the 9mm that I have, but my dream pistol would be a 10mm. I have a buddy who has one and I really like shooting it. Plus, it is just something a little different for funsies. hahaha

I have to agree w the Glock 26. I, on the other hand, am a big Glock fan so my answer may be a bit biased. Full mag capacity of 10+1 which is increased by one or two with a minimal mag ext. - not that you'll need that much but it is certainly a confidence booster. You won't find a more reliable brand as a whole (google "Glock torture test") and the 26 is a great platform. The Gen4 is especially comfortable in my hand.

Not to mention, as you already may know, the 9mm is cheap to run at the range vs a 10 or .45.

Might have missed it but what flavor of 9mm do you have?
The 10mm is a great round but you know you have to pay for them, right

Yeah, the 10's are spendy to shoot but I got a buddy with all the stuff to reload so it wouldn't be too bad in the long run I guess.

I have a Model 59 Smith and Wesson. It was my dad's gun back when he was a Deputy a million years ago. I've only put a few rounds through it. Been more of a rifle guy to this point in my life, never had a lot of use for pistols. Then a guy I met a few weeks ago was telling me a story about how some guys tried to rob him at a rest stop. The realized he was older and in tough shape, and they saw the "Disabled Vet" license plate. What they didn't know is he was a retired Navy Seal. They didn't fare so well and then when they got a second wind, they didn't like his 45 he was carrying either. Bottom line, I have 2 small kids and a wife and we do a lot of traveling to visit family or go shoot archery tournaments or going hunting and I feel I should do whatever I can to protect them.

I also have an Ruger 357 revolver that my dad used to hunt. It has 3 different barrel lengths you can put on. It has the long one on right now "I think 6 inch" but it has a 4" and either a 2 or 3" I could put on it too. But for carrying, I kind of prefer to have a bottom feeder, and that is strictly personal preference.
