New to the forum here from Central Florida, and I was hoping to get some insight from some veteran concealed carriers on guns of choice. From browsing through a few other threads, it seems to be a consensus that Glock 19/23, XDm-9/-40 and the M&P-9/-40 are excellent choices. I am looking to make my first gun purchase (although I've been going to ranges for a few months now renting weapons) that I will eventually be using as a CCW and a range pistol (say a month or two from now for the concealed permit).
I know Glock, SA and S&W are well respected and are very reliable (and moderately priced from my college student budget), but I wanted to see what everyone on here recommended for a CC/Range pistol in 9mm or .40? A local gun shop/range here in Orlando (East Orange Shooting Sports) recently got in an FNH FNP-9 and although I havent shot it yet, it feels great in hand and is cheaper than even a Glock 19; any word on FNH? As much as I'd love to purchase one for CC and another for range, I just couldnt afford that, so I need a hybrid thats good for both.
Thanks for your help!
