Or you could get an external thumb safety AND that sweet sweet short lighter SA trigger pull with a Sig p938. Also a good little trainer for 1911 mechanics imo

I am 27 and have been carrying all the time since i was 22 i carry a springfield XD 9mm subcompact in a desantis softuk IWB holster in winter i use a shoulder holster(not an issue in FL) anyway as you select "your perfect sidearm" don't forget to consider availability of gear (holsters,grips,lasers,after market mags) when i first bought my XD it was very hard to find holsters or anything else for it without signing over my first born son.....now accesories and aft market parts are everywhere so good luck in your search

I was carrying a Glock 36, but didn't like the small capacity. I traded that for 1000 rounds of.556 and 5 windowed Pmags. I wanted to replace my 36 with a Glock 30S, but the availability was crap, so I settled on the G30. I carry it in a crossbreed super-tuck and a spare G21 13rd mag. Gotta love interchangeable mags! Whatever you end up choosing I agree 100% with the other posts, you need to invest in a great holster. If you opt of the smaller carry guns, i.e. Ruger lcp etc, a crossbreed will make that sucker disappear. I carry in shorts and a T-shirt and no printing. You might have to go up a size on your pants an shirt though, because IWB like crossbreed does take up a bit of room. The other investment is a good gun belt. I use a leather Sam Browne looking garrison basket-weave belt. Very thick and sturdy and takes the extra weight of a holstered gun very well.

Hope I helped and didn't confuse you!
The Springfield xds .45 is a great concealed carry weapon! I carry IWB, which is very comfortable with this gun.

Also if you are not married to a certain caliber smith and wesson sells a 380 acp with an integral laser that can be had for around $400 if you want something larger like a 9mm the LC9 can be had for about $600 sig makes several small 9mm "pocket pistols" but i have never seen one for less tha $1200

Mine was about $460 with tax(April of 2012), but that was a shop that had a good relationship with the co. because mine came with 3 mags with fingergrip ext's, and the shop owner put them on for me(guess it helps that relationship that they are in the same town as the factory). I added my own Laser Lyte for $100.

Even tho 22 ammo prices are ridiculous, they are still cheaper than 9mm, and nobody has reloading components. So, if you can make a deal someplace for 2000 or so rds of .22lr, that's the place to start. In fact you could start with a quality airsoft gun, right now, and ccw and shoot it in your home.. Get used to carrying it, 'clearing' your concealing garment, notice any problems accessing it with a given holster, location, or garment. Consider the Keltec PF9 and the Twisted Industries .22 conversion unit for the KT. you can have both for your $600 limit. RTK Industries makes a trigger parts kit that helps a lot. The $350 PF9 is a very "pocketable" 9mm. The .22 unit is quite accurate and reliable, too.
