How does it stack up for a conceal carry weapon? I know conceal carry is illegal in my state, but SHOULD it be legalized, maybe I can add this to my collection with a 1911 later down the road.

If you like the 1911 design but want a 9mm.... why don't you just get a 1911 in 9mm. Just about every company that makes 1911s offers them in 9mm.

I had a Springfield EMP back when I had money. It was a great pistol.

The only reason I consider something besides a 1911 is because people on here have told me that some of them require adjustment to get them right. Are there any 9mm that are good right out of the box that you aren't going to pay an arm and a leg for? I heard Springfield XDs are nice. I don't know how big they are compared to the Glock 19 though.

NGIB, it seems you have a lot of experience with handguns. What do you suggest for a good starter weapon for a 9mm that won't require alot of tinkering?

Hogger129, I'm going to give you one last suggestion/piece of advice - grow up and act like an adult. I find the post above stupid and childish, how do you ever expect to be taken seriously when you make these posts?

I'm done...

Not really a glock guy. I personally don't like them. They are quality guns, but feels like a brick in my hands. If you are looking for a caliber between the 9mm and the 45, how about the 40caliber. You can also fit a lot of rounds in a clip. I've got a beretta px4 that fills the void of composit guns in my safe. Ergonomically if fits my hands very well and it comes with 3 interchangable backstraps to fit your hand. It holds 14 round in the 40.

If you can shoot and hit your target all you need is 3 shots 2 in the heart 1 in the head.

Why you need 45 million rounds of ammo in a mag is beyond me. Plus the more ammo you stuff in a mag the harder it becomes to load the mag.

hogger i would tell you that maybe you need to stick to the bb and or cap guns for now.

Man that new math is really screwing up our kids today.

They now think |_________________________________| that is 7".

I do act like an adult because I am an adult. You make a big deal over nothing all the time.

I just came on here to find more about guns, talk about them and give my 2 cents. I did not come on here to take ****.
