Good range 9mm occational carry
Hey guy's I am looking to buy a 9mm in a month or so and I know my shotguns and rifles well but I need some info on pistols. This will be my first handgun I have purchased but I regularly shoot family and friends revolvers. I wanted a .40 until I saw the price difference in ammo between the 9mm and .40 and I do not want a 22. I shoot a lot with friends so I would like a good gun at the range but I also want to be able to carry the gun (I am taking the class later this month) I am looking at S&W m&p series and I checked out a few Walthers as well. I would like a compact gun the only issue is I need to be able to fit all my fingers on the grip. I don't know much about Glocks style of safety so I was looking at a thumb safety which is what I am used to, I also really like the Crimson laser sights on the m&p's. Any and all advice on choices would be appreciated!
Re: Good range 9mm occational carry
Any of the sub-compacts that offer an extra clip with a grip extension would work well for what you want. I personally like the Springfield Xd, Xdm's but a lot about handguns is how they fit you so shoot as many as you can.
