I love my FNH fs 9mm. Was going to go glock but salesman convinced me otherwise. First handgun, wife is deadly accurate with it. Very happy!

Just read an article on the Walther 9mm. These seem to never get a mention.....I used to like them, nice feel and grip.... any experiences from you guys? And only $599, made in USA...

HK P7M8 is the top of my list. Unbelievably accurate.

I also like my Sig 228 and Glock 19.

We have a winner!
You ain't even gotta aim that thing. It knows what you're looking at.
Quick on the draw, too.

I love my Glock 17 but I'm also very used to a 2 stage trigger. I highly recommend getting some snap caps and practicing. When you do it enough times you'll know exactly how to use the trigger which I actually think is more effective than a standard heavier trigger pull. Also check out a Gen4 with the changeable grip size. Might help with smaller hands.

As for a CC I have a Kel-Tec PF9 with a belt clip and I love that set up as well. Has never had a failure to fire or eject even with cheap ammo or reloads. Very dependable which is the most important factor in a CC. If I need it, it better fire.

I am a big Glock fan and carry a midsize 9mm most of the time.

I would also highly recommend : Springfield XD
Here are my list of Pro's and Con's
Pro's
  • Better trigger feel.
  • Better point of aim.
  • Well made design.
  • Dependable

Cons
Large capacity magazines not made by manufacture
Slightly higher cost
Made out of USA (Croatia)

The regular XD higher cost than a Glock? The XDm yes, but not the XD. As for large capacity magazines, you talking 33 rounders like Glock or just regular hi-cap? Springfield does make hi-cap magazines. Did you buy a CA Compliant pistol, relegated to 10 round mags??

I am a huge fan of the XDs. I carry one in .45 but the 9mm is physically the same size. I have both a pocket holster and a CompTac Minotaur IWB for it. It fits great in a front pocket of cargo shorts. It also fits really nice at the 4:00 position on my hip. Extra magazines fit easily into the off hand pocket or a magazine holster. You have the option of running extended magazines if you like that extend the grip out a little and add a couple rounds (two in .45, not sure if it's 2 or 3 in 9mm).

They recently had a recall on the safety in the XDs so make sure you get one that's been serviced. You'll be able to see a roll pin inside the grip safety if it has.

I've had my G19 for many years and enjoyed shooting it but I just got a MP Shield 9mm for Christmas. I think it shoots great and is very concealable. I've run about 250 to 300 rounds through it without issue too. It's a great little gun for the price. Trigger isn't bad at all to me and not near as long as the LC9...although I like the Ruger too.

The MPcompact9 looks good too.

I recently picked up an xdm short barrel. I love it. 13rd standard mag with a 19rd extended if you have room depending on how you carry. Great trigger, easy sight acquisition, adjustable grips to fit your hand, much more but I'll stop now. Only drawback that I have found so far is the cost... It will set you back a bit more than a glock, xd or s&w, but I think it's worth shooting to see how it feels.

I have the XD Sub-compact and Kahr CM9 in a 9MM. the XD is a little too large to CC, the Kahr is perfect for my needs. Has great reviews and shoots great, the trigger pull takes a little getting used to, but once you've shot a few rounds it does well. I had a crimson laser installed, and accuracy is perfect at 20'-25'. Without it, I'm all over the place.

HiPoint all the way. It's too big to conceal and saves you money on ammo by not working most of the time. It's the Yugo of handguns.
