I find that the Glock 17 and Glock 22 are excessive in their size, but that's only because I have medium to small hands. The Glock 19 size pretty much for me is a full size handgun, and the Glock 26 size is pretty much a carry size for me. I prefer the Glock 26 mainly, because if I'm going to carry a 9mm handgun I want it to still have good capacity, but also be fairly concealable.

All that said I use my carry guns at the range all the time so for me I have two sets of handguns; range and carry/range.

Is 457 a caliber or a model number? I don't think it matters what the brand of the gun is if/when the slug hits the target.

He compared apples to oranges, a G30 or G36 would be the same caliber as the S&W 457..................lame gun shop ninja

Yeah, I misreaded the G18 apparently.
Made another stop after looking at prices on the net and they are a little higher than I though there. I did find a 1911 at a decent price though. I don't have one of those either. I held the 19 again too. It feels sexy in my hand. Hhhhhhhmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm..... I may hold off till the next gun show and do a little more searching and price comparing. I'll get something soon though.

I finally hit the time frame that I was able to renew my CCP (has to be less than 30 days before expiration) so now I can legally carry any time. Not just to and from the shooting range.

Yes, what he said ^ . I have a 17 for home defense and a 19 to carry. I like 'em both.....

457 is a model number. It is a 45 calibre firearm made by S&W.

New to this forum, but a long time cc. I've felt that the G31 is a nice option. It was recommended by a nice customs official. Speed of a 9mm but knockdown power of a 40 cal
