    I was looking at these 2 guns and I want to save up for either(Give my dad the money, then he adds it to the collection) The cai in my opinion is pretty good looking and has good magazine capacity can anyone tell me if they are reliable? I was also looking at the sd9ve, I shot an sd40 and I liked it alot but I would rather have something in 9mm. What do you guys have to say about these guns and which one would you get? Would it be better to save up for a glock 21 or 19?

    What if something broke on the CAI?

    Are there aftermarket accessories (holsters, mags, etc...) available for the CAI?

    Good call on the parts. So the sd9ve would be a better choice?

    Save for the Glock. You can find used ones for 450 or so all day long.

    You better deside of a glock fits your hand and you like the over all feel shooting one. Personaly haveing had a couple glocks and a having a SD I think the sd40ve is a better pistol for a full sized pistol. Fits my hand better and add the low cost apex kit to it and trigger weight is lowed a couple lbs. Good handgun. If you don't buy the SD get a M&P and do the apex kit or just the apex stricker block to smooth up the trigger and have a grip that adjustable like glock gen 4 and fits average hands better than a glock gen 4 does. Oh, buy the time you buy a M&P or m&p compact and add the kit its the same cost as a glock gen 4.
