Sorry on advanced for the long winded post. Here it goes : My current and only CCW is a 3"Smith and Wesson model 60-15. I love the gun, but the other night I was dry firing it a bunch (with snap caps) to help break in the new rebound spring and make sure it was functioning ok with the new setup. I did it while I watched TV for half an hour or so. Anyways the front sight pin walked out on me and vanished into Oblivion during the dry fire session . I got a replacement pin Within 2 days (now it's a roll pin instead of a solid pin,she ain't going no where!). I HATED being without my CCW, even for a couple days. I have other guns for home defense and what not, but it made me realize I need to get a second CCW because crap happens. It's good to be prepared, and besides it's a reason for a new gun . I think it would be a good idea to have at least one 9mm at my disposal. Even though I MUCH prefer revolvers, I need to suck it up and put in the trigger time in with the bottom feeders, they just have too many good things going for them to not be using them as a ccw. I have two guns that I'm selling off ,one is going to a good friend when he gets cash together and the other is listed on arms list. As soon as one sells I'm going to pick up a second CCW. Here is my criteria/thoughts -g19 or smaller size -I live in a 10 round state -Under 600 bucks -thinking a double stack sub compact would be the best fit. -easily concealed -reliability is a must -night sights a plus, but not mandatory -had a cz p01 in the past liked it, but couldn't find a comfortable way to carry it. If it was just a little shorter in the grip like a g26 length and had the option of a mag with pinky extension it would have been perfect -have carried a full size 1911 a little and found it way to long for my 2:30/3 oclock carry position that I favor, especially driving . List guns I've been eyeballing on the web for consideration -Gen 5 g26 (don't like older gens finger grooves) -cz p10s -fns-9c -mp9c -security 9 compact -P365 -ppq sc -sr9c (haven't seen one locally yet) Added via edit: -p365xl -glock 43x -glock 48 -SW shield I greatly appreciate suggestions and input . If you have any thoughts of the guns on my list id like to hear it. Or if there are guns I'm overlooking that I should keep an eye out for,please share. Thanks!
