I’ve been thinking about my very modest collection of semi-auto handguns and what needs I have and the niche they fill. Currently I own three… a SIG P229SCT in .40, a Beretta 92FS and a XDM Compact in 9mm. All are very new and in pristine condition. The P229- in my opinion it is the gold standard for an all metal, DA/SA mid-size pistol. I love the gun. Functions great, looks great and feels great. It is a range gun for me, just basic target shooting and it’s my bed side pistol. I don’t have CCW permit yet, but I plan to get one soon. This gun will probably be a secondary pistol or somewhere in the rotation for my carry needs and it’s my only .40 The XDM- another gun I can’t see myself ever letting go. Great pistol, excellent ergonomics, accurate and functions flawlessly. I love the convertibility of it with it’s full size mag and short mag for carry. This will be my primary CCW pistol. I shoot it often, just a fun pistol to shoot at the range. The Beretta- It’s my second 92. I missed the first one after I sold it and had to replace it. It’s in near new condition and like all Beretta’s, it just looks like it’s doing 100mph sitting on the table. It’s a range gun and that’s all it will ever be. I call it my SHTF gun, anyone will work on them, you can always find parts and accessories….But it’s also the pistol I would let go and I’ve been thinking about that lately.... …there’s a couple of handguns I’d like to have. I’d like a couple of revolvers. A short barreled .38 snub for CCW would be nice. A full size .357 for the range and a woods gun would thrill me to death. And a single-stack semi for CCW for those occasions you want very little bulk when carrying. With limited funds, like many of us…I’d have trade off the Beretta. I know it’s a personal decision and I know I’d miss it. I've never sold or traded a gun I didn't miss.... Just soliciting your thoughts and opinions….thanks.
