      Handle (and if possible fire) all of them and see which you like best. Unless you're looking DAO only I'd say to consider an S&W SW99 or Walther P99 as well.

      What calibers do those come in?
      Have you shot them?

      If the list is of guns you are considering, I recommend the Glock 19. I have owned and carried a Glock 22, 27, 19, 35, and 17. Of all of them the 19 is by far the one I liked the most. Big enough for a range gun and small enough for concealed carry.

      If you are looking for a good inexpensive HD you may look at the EAA Witness P Compact. I have this gun in .45, out of the box it perfromed better than I expected. Handled great, felt great, shot well, no problems at all. The size lends itself to CC as well, just a bit heavy.

      If you are looking for a HD gun then I would tend to lean toward a 45 no reason to sacrifice the energy of a 45 if you are not looking to make it more easily concealable. I have had some of the 45GAP glocks and was real happy with their performance, I did some testing on hog flesh and the 45gap performed almost EXACTLY the same as the 45 acp

      Unless of course he can shoot a 9mm better. Better placed shots with a 9mm outperform a 45 any day.

      45acp wins in my book. 45gap costs about 1.5X that of 45acp. Just my .02

      the sig polymer pros are as reliable as the glocks and can be had for a good price if you shop for a bargain. They have outstanding acurracy and look great to, super easy to field strip and clean on top of that.

      forgot to mention that a 9mm can be just as usefull for home protection as it can be for the range.... cheap fmjs for practice and with todays 9mm ammo being as advanced as it is in the personal protection area theres no reason to stray away from a 9... imho

      I agree with that.

      Always good advice on that.
      Add to the fact that 9mm ammo is generally cheaper [Local Wal-Mart sells 100 round packs of WWB for $20] and lower recoil may mean more time spent at the range practicing the 9mm vs practicing the .45.
      Just something to contemplate

      With the list you have posted...XD45C. I use the same XD for both range shoots and CCW.
