    I am looking to buy a new weapon. Living in NY is limiting as to what guns I can actually pick up and feel no less try out. And reading the web sites is tough to compare apples to apples. I figured you guys being the experts would be my best choice. Here is what I am looking for.
    1. Concealable – less than 7” long and less than 5” in height, thin is good. Hard to get info on width…….
    2. 10 round capacity of .40 cal
    3. Prefer single and or double action
    4. External safety
    5. Dependable
    6. Less than $600 (negotiable).
    I have looked at the Glocks, 27 is nice, no external safety and the grip is just too deep for my hand. (all the glocks fall into that category for me.)They are so nice, well priced, and have great reviews but the grips are just to darn deep. I am 5’5”, 160 lbs. and have short fingers.
    The XD 40 Sub Compact and the 4” service are nice, do not know how wide they are. Double action only and no external safety other than the grip safety (this is acceptable) and running in first place right now
    I know I will get lots of responses but is there anything that meets all of these criteria?

    I have a 5" XD45 and I love it.
    It's really not all that much wider than my 1911.

    I am not normally a Taurus fan, but a Millennium Pro series meets just about all those criteria.
