    Some of those guns are a little large for concealing.

    Especially the Ruger P89. I love mine, and I have carried it before, but you gotta be careful with what you wear.

    Among your choices, I voted for the XD, and I would suggest the compact or subcompact. Glock is also good.

    Mostly, I carry a Kimber 1911 Compact CDP II.

    I voted for the 92FS. Obviously since I own one I'm biased, but that's the reason I bought it to begin with so my vote is valid. You said you want mainly reliability and accuracy and for those you can't do better than the Beretta.

    Having said that, most all the guns on your list are fine and it probably comes down to personal feel more than anything else. While I tried a bunch of guns and shot best with the Beretta, that is certainly not going to be true for everyone. For instance, I have tried numerous Glocks and I'm one of those that just don't shoot them well and don't care for their feel, but many swear by them so once again, it's personal.

    The Beretta however, is probably not the best choice for carry. It is a large gun with a big grip, big footprint, and 5" barrel. Even though I own one, if I were to carry I would probably purchase a subcompact of some sort. I did not buy mine with the intention to carry it. It is my primary HD weapon. Should I face multiple foes requiring additional ammo I would do a "New York reload" and pick up my S&W 357 magnum. Now that's what I call a spare mag!!

    My favorite is the one I carry, because I can conceal it and shoot it too; my Smith and Wesson Airlite T. It works. I have other guns that I like a lot, but this is the one that I can carry in summer totally concealed.

    My day to day carry weapon is the XD-45 and it conceals nicely on somebody my size. Of course when you're my size, you could probably slip an RPG though concealed without a problem.

    What to wear?

    I would go with the XD-45 Compact. With the 10 round mag it carries well in a belt holster and a shirt tail out, even in the crappy little holster that comes with it, after you tighten the tension on it. I just sold my Glock 38 and have no regrets. Ed

    I voted for the Glock. I love my 19 but am also very fond of my Kahr CW9. You can't even tell you have the thing on, even IWB. One of the best DOA triggers on the market.

    I would recommend the Kimber Eclipse Ultra. It is all stainless steel, 3" barrel. I can carry my Pro II and it has a 4" barrel. They are great shooters!

    Stoeger Cougar, but I am sticking with the price limit. No limit, Kimber Eclipse.

    10+1 capacity, with a 16 round back-up mag.
    Better trigger, sights, ergonomics than most.
    Simple take-down, cleaning, and care.

    My first gun was a Beretta 92FS. Still got it, still shoot it, but the XD9sc by far is a better gun (for me) as a CCW.

    As for the accuracy.......A+++

    I hit better/consistant groups at 8-10 yrds than the Beretta.

    I went with Haugenhandgunleather.com for a good OWB holster #31 Speed Scabbard III & added PEARCE Grip pinky extender(s) to both my 10rnd mags.



    I've had the chance to shoot many different brands/calibers......and I ALWAYS come back the XD's as my favorite overall choice.

    My son just bought a used Sig P228 and I got to shot it before he did......and i have to tell you that I might need to ground him and as punishment take his gun away....

    It shot AWESOME, I own a Taurus PT92 and I love that gun, and I am not bad with it, but when I shot this Sig, I was much better with my groupings..... I guess I need to buy one soon.
