thoughts

Some random thoughts. Glock 26, M&P9c, and Springfield Xd9 are all good choices. All are high quality and all have a lot of after market accessories that are easy to get. I like the grip angle on...

Not much difference in size

If you use the mag pinkie extensions on the G-26 you will find the size and weight difference between the G-19 and G-26 almost negligible. Therefore if you are going to use it for the range, and...

Yes

I have used Hogue grip sleeves on Glock's as well as Pacmayr grip sleeves. I really like the feel of these better than the polymer. Of the two, I like the Pacmayr better than the Hogue. It is...

Jmho

For me it was the following. I wanted more punch than a .380. I wanted to practice a lot, so needed affordable ammo, therefore 9mm. My personal preference is for striker fired over 1911 or SA/DA. ...

I own both the Shield and 9C. Shield works well for CCW. The 9C however feels better in my hand and I prefer it if I have the option to carry something a little larger. I prefer the feel and...

depends on usage

The Shield is a great carry gun, thin and light, good caliber for self defense, good trigger, accurate, reliable. The M&P 9C is thicker and heavier and is very similar to the Glock 26. Both S&W's...

Consider the M&P Shield

9MM, thin and light, proven platform, thumb safety (for right hander), LCI peep hole, crisp trigger (not the long double action pull).

Kahr PM9 or P380?

I like semi auto's so I like the Kahr alot for a CCW. My daughter however has some difficulty with semi autos. Therefore I like the suggestions of revolvers by the other posters. Smith and Wesson...

my list

Consider this, get two of the same platform in different sizes. One for the range, one for carry. That way you will get fully familiar with the gun's mechanisms and break down process for both...

I agree with this (IMHO)

As stated above Ruger SR9C, Springfield XD or XDM, and Glock in 9mm are all great choices. Another excellent choice is the Beretta PX4. These are all quality pistols at affordable prices. They are...

Glock pistols are great, nothing wrong there. ...

Glock pistols are great, nothing wrong there. But I think you needlessly gave up a great gun in the Beretta because of the "bigger is better crowd". if you don't feel 9mm is enough for you then you...

I did some research online and decided on a Ruger. Went to the gun shop and handled both the Ruger and the Browning Buckmark Hunter. The Browning fit my hand perfectly and I ended up buying it. ...

XD

As many will tell you, the most important aspect of owning any CCW is practice. So it makes sense to me to buy the same gun in a carry version and a range gun. The XD's are inexpensive and...

Take a deep breath

Take it back to where you bought it and have the gun smith look at it. I had a problem with a brand new Glock 17. They had to send it back to Glock. They fixed it (quickly) and it hasn't ever...

This orange "plug" is to be used when you are at the range. After you shoot at your target you clear your pistol by dropping the mag and locking the slide open. Then you plug this orange device...
