      Vote Now! Favorite Handgun

      Hey,

      I'm new here and am looking for a semi-automatic pistol, should be able to conceal under standard clothes but not too small.

      For caliber choice, I am probably going to go with a 9mm because of the cost of cheap practice ammunition. honestly a 9mm loaded with some hydra shocks or equivalent should be enough to stop someone or definitely change there priorities, but if you feel another caliber would be better feel free to speak your opinion.


      Price should be under $650

      I forgot to add in the poll that if you have other suggestions please post them,

      I mainly want reliability, and accuracy!

      Used Guns would be a possibility.

      Thanks

      My favorite is never on these polls. Walther P99! They should be in your price range depending on where you do your shopping.

      Well, I threw in the first Glock vote, LOL! And nooooooo, I'm by no means a Glock thumper AT ALL!! I had an XDsc and I loved it, but I decided to rent a G19 and it just fit MY hand a little better than the XD. Again, fit my hand, no everyone's! Shot it a little better too, soooo I bought one. I carry my G19 all the time and shoot it pretty darn well. I think Mike Barham had a little to do with the Glock influence, LOL, just don't tell him that. Another thing I like about the Glock is that parts, mags, etc are cheap!!

      Anyway, there are also a couple of others that weren't listed by I really like. I was torn between which to vote on, the Glock made the poll, but these should be right up there too: HK USP Compact and Kahr PM9. Again, some may like them and some won't. The HK's a sweet shooter, but it's gonna typically be above that $650 mark. But, the cool thing about all of the other guns you listed is that they also go bang when you want them to! It seems to me that with HK, Sig, etc (the high end stuff) you're just paying a bit extra for a name. I shoot/shot my Glock, XD (when I had it), Baby Eagle (when I had it) just as well, if not better than the HK. I just liked the looks of the HK and it did have all the features I wanted.

      The Kahr PM9 is sweeeeet. Just bought one for my wife and she LOVES it. The trigger is hands down the best DA trigger I've ever felt. It's tiny, too! It disappears when concealed, and will slip into about any pocket. Down side: Low round capacity and price. It's a little expensive, but might make your cut.

      Off to bed, just had to throw my $.02 in.

      I personally voted for the XD because that's what I have shot the most and the XD personally fits my hands better then the Glock. Having said this, I would trust my life to a Glock ANY day, just as I would and do with my XD. Also, the XD is quite inexpensive used and even new when compared to some other options (I got my XD9SC for $399 and my bi-tone service for $410 on gunbroker...both new). Also, the Beretta 92fs is a GREAT option as I was considering that as well. It's just a little big to conceal although it can be done. I also considered the CZ75 as I think it's a VERY sexy looking handgun, but again a little harder to conceal then some other options might be. So, PERSONALLY I would go with the XD if reliability AND price were of concern.....I don't regret the purchase of either of my XD's, they are incredible. If you can afford the Glock AND it fits your hand better then I say go with the Glock. Those are just my opinions and like I said....how the guns fit you and how you feel with them/shoot them is of great importance. Good luck with whatever you decide!

      Another Glocker here; currently all 9mms, too.

      G26, G19, G17, G34; it doesn't really matter, take your pick, they're all good!

      Voted none of the above..for me I carry a Para Ordinance LTC or a Colt Combat Commander. If I wanna do full size then it's my Springfield Gov 1911. If I"m feeling a need to change yo I will usually carry my Browning Pro-40. I don't usually ever carry a 9mm..Just because but if I was to take a notion then my Sig P226 would be the way for me to go.

      Nothing wrong with others. I'm just old and set in my ways. I'm a 1911 guy. I have and shoot a few "non 1911's" and they are really nice. Just not for me.

      Since I carry a Glock 23 that's what I voted but my next gun will probably be a sub XD. I liked the way it felt.

      I prefer the Glock, but all the guns mentioned will work for your purposes, as will a bunch of other guns from SIG, HK, Kahr, etc. It doesn't really matter so much what we like, as what you like. I am not at all crazy about the Taurus or Ruger pistols listed, but the other four are excellent guns.

      Shoot as many as you can and choose the one you shoot the best - which may not be the same as the one you think "feels" the best.

      I don't have any difficulty concealing an M&P. After well in excess of 6000 rounds through each of an M&P9 and M&P40 I can with full confidence call them reliable. Also they fit my hand.

      I voted for the 24/7
      Love to shoot this gun.
      for concealment - i'd get the 24/7 compact (still 17 rounds)

      edit - that old guy has one of the coolest jobs in the world.

      P99 is a close second - I've only fired the AS and not the QA though.

      I love my HK P30. Most comfortable gun I've ever fired.

      My favorite Handgun is not on the list although all of the ones on the list are great guns and I wouldn't mind owning any of them except the Glock. My favorite has to be a Sig220 .45acp. I can't afford one now but SOMEDAY! I know where there is one in almost new condition for $400, and have considered trading my Witness, but just can't do it.

      I want to throw in a vote for the Beretta PX4. I've shot several other of kinds of hand guns before but keep coming back to my PX4 .40cal. It doesn't abuse your hand any harder than a 9mm and IHO it has a little more stopping power. I got mine for $400 and it's been very realiable as well as being super accurate for me. That's just my 2 cents.

      I still haven't found any better carry gun than my XD9SC.

      Excellent concealment with the 3" barrel.
      Excellent accuracy for a 3" gun.
      Excellent price for a super reliable weapon.
      10+1 capacity, with a 16 round back-up mag.
      Better trigger, sights, ergonomics than most.
      Simple take-down, cleaning, and care.

      Downside... since SA sends them with their own junk holster, mag pouchs, etc... I think the holster companies hold a grudge... Not a lot of selection.

      That said, both my Don Hume First Agent and Galco Matrix work fine!
