First of all Iím not sure if I should post this under concealed carry discussions or general firearm discussions so if need be moved please do so.
A little while back I posted about wanting to try appendix carry (and again to those who responded thank you for all the info) and from the responses I got and other post and discussions about appendix carry that have been coming up on this forum I think Iím going to try it. A lot of good information that Iíve read
My question now is what new handgun to get? Iím looking to make this my new primary EDC. I know I want a sub compact and really want it to have a rail. So the only two Subcompacts that Iíve seen w/ a rail are the Springfield XD and the Beretta PX4, unless anyone can make me aware of a diff subcompact w/ a rail. I went and handled them both today at the local shop but they didnít have them available to rent and try out. To me the Beretta seemed to be a hair slimmer in the grip but other than that the specks seem to be almost identical. I know both of them have their differences and wish I could of test fired them but couldnít unfortunately so Iím have to hope I can get some more great info from you guys on here.
Just FYI my thought process of why I want a rail is so i can have the option of attaching a light to it. I personally donít think that i will every carry a handgun w/ a tactical light attached to it but i do travel and go on vacation from time to time and stay in hotels so it would be really nice to have a small light, like the TLR-3 from streamlight and CC all day then when we get back to the room take the light out of the suitcase clip the light on and put it on the night stand and then in the morning take the light off and CC again. My personal preference is to have a light where ever the barrel is pointing and have another light so i can just use the light if need be w/out the gun. That just me personally.
So please let me know what your stance is and especially from anyone whose shot both anything that youíve noticed about them.
