    Hard one. With me it would be a toss up between the XD and M&P. I would have to feel them side by side. If it were me I would go for the USP compact though. I love mine in .45!

    I think that's at homerepairforum.com....

    I love my XD9SC. I've fired all three (the M&P Full size)...

    I chose the XD9SC because it was just like my XD45. Fantastic. Flawless, accurate, and under $500.

    You shot the P99c in .40? If so, you'll understand why I switched to an XD and to a 9mm.

    It seems that im the only one betting on Taurus.
    Pt 111 is affordable, compact and have a 12+1 capacity of 9mm.

    I guess I'm kinda silly, but I prefer reliability.

    Haven't shot them all, but love my XD9SC. No problems and as stated is feels just like the XD45Compact and I have had no problems with any ammo I have put in either.

    Buy the XD SC 9 and don't look back. Great all around gun when you consider price, quality, reliability, ease of shooting, take down, size, weight, capacity and available accessories. The XD SC will be #1 or #2 for each of these categories in the list you provided. Also, when you expand your collection, buy another XD, your already used to the feel of the gun and the trigger pull.

    Was it the .40 you shot? They are the softest shooting .40's on the market. I don't know anything about their 9mm.

    out of the choices you list i would say the XD

    i think you should hold on a while( as hard as that is) and take a look at the new beretta storm sub compact when it hits the salesroom floors. i really want to see how it fits my hand...heres a link

    Caliber

    The choices provided in this thread indicate a strong insistence that the .45 is the only effective sefl defense round. I would strongly disagree. Shot placement and tactical advantage are much more important. Concealed carry is a relatively new phenomenon for citizens, and I think we are carrying into it, a lot of "gun magazine" philosophy. Any caliber, including the .22 will stop an adversary if shot placement is precise. Ancillary strikes by any caliber, including .44 mag, have no guarantee of immediate reaction.

    For concealed carry, I prefer a small, light concealed gun that I can shoot well. I have used the .45 and have always been enamored of it. Recently I even took a look at a compact Kimber, which is still not entirely out of my sights. But most of the time I carry a S&W .38 snub Airlite T. I have a S&W M&P 9c and a Glock 36. I have carried them all, but in summer only the Airlite is truly concealable to my specifications.

    I shot the MP40C today and loved it. I prefer it 10x over the full size MP40. First 5 or so shots I had to adjust to the trigger but then no issues. This was a range gun using in house reloaded ammo. No issues at all.

    I have the M&P 9mm (full size) and also have the XD9sc . I carry the XD IWB every day. I rented the Glock 26 and the XDsc at the same time and ended up buying the XD. The Glock didn't fit me as good as the XD, I shot much better with the XD but I like that the Glock is a little lighter.
    I also liked the grip safety on the XD. The Glock 26 is still on my buy list along with the Ruger LCP for summer carry. The M&P sits in the safe because I just can't hit the bulls eye near as good as I can with the XD.
    Try them out first or you will second guess your self for ever.

    I would tend to agree, IF I had the extra $250 to spend on a gun (H&Ks are on the pricey side compared to M&Ps).

    My next gun will most likely be the M&P .45 full-size. Forget trying to conceal it; gimme 10 rounds of .45ACP in a big comfy gun. If I need a compact I can usually conceal my Ruger pretty well at 1:00 or 4:00 (though I really would like a left-handed IWB for 4:00 and I found out the one IWB I have is a size too big).

    Love my 9compact so much I bought a full size 45. I never liked plastic
    before I shot this gun. Highly recommend the M&P.
