Howdy y’all! I’m new to this forum but certainly not new to guns. Even so, I recognize that I don’t know everything about all guns so I’m looking for a little advice. I’d like to buy a new open carry gun for when I’m teaching CCW and pistol safety classes. I have been carrying either the XDM (5.25” bbl) or the Canik TP9 SFx but I’d like to carry something with a little more gravitas. I’ve been wanting a full sized pistol that I can suppress and figured that if I could kill both of those birds with one good sized rock then my wife would be happier (spending less on guns and more on her, LOL!). My budget is $700 and I’m thinking .45ACP but would listen to arguments for the 9mm. This is what I’ve been looking at: ultimately I’d love to get an HK but they seem to be out of my budget’s reach. Walther’s PPQ looks good, as does the Sig Sauer line of tacticals (also a bit high $). I like the FNX 45 as well but have no experience with FN. The features it should have is a threaded barrel, appropriately tall sights for a can, a manual safety and be a full sized weapon as I’ll never need it for CC. Any thoughts?
