In your humble opinion. IMHO, in horse and buggy days, seven rounds beat most six shooters by a small margin, and was faster to reload. Today, with Mexican gangs roving every American highway and many city streets, no way I am going to pack only seven rounds for self protection.
Have a friend with a high dollar Kimber. He neglected to keep it oiled. It is showing signs of pitting from rust. SS gun. No Glock I have ever seen has that issue from neglect.
Stick a twenty round mag in a Glock 10mm and have more firepower than gangs, only way to go these days. Like I say, IMHO. I also carry a ankle holstered storm sub compact 9mm +p+ with 18 rounds. This never leaves my side 24/7
The Smith 439 just does not cut it for me self defence wise because it is not rated +p+ or does not hold enough rounds for a SHTF event, which I hope to never see.
