    There are a lot of semi-auto handguns on the market which are suitable for concealed carry. Can you give us a little more to go on so we can try an offer some opinions which will fit your needs?

    Caliber?
    Capacity?
    Ambidextrous controls?
    DAO, DA/SA, SAO?
    Full size, compact, sub-compact?
    Night sights?
    Budget?
    Anything else?

    Too many good ones to suggest. You need to do some "hands-on" research to narrow your choices down.

    Exactly my thoughts. I am a semi-auto guy but I don't see it as an "upgrade." I see it as enhanced capacity and, in the case of polymers, lighter while having the larger capacity.

    Glock 26 - 9MM, 10 rounds
    Glock 19 - 9MM, 15 rounds
    M&P 9C - 9MM, 12 rounds
    Or their .40 cal counterparts with a little less magazine capacity (Glock 27, Glock 23, M&P 40C).

    All are suitable for IWB carry. All are quality handguns.

    There are many fine handguns out there that will fit your needs. These are just my recommendations because I'm familiar with them.

    XD9sc.

    13+1 (16 available with extension)
    26 oz.
    No manual safety, but it has a grip safety (can help prevent accidents when holstering).
    Tough as the Glock IMO.
    Right at your budget number if you can find one.

    To upgrade would imply going to something better. Before I could reccommend an upgrade I would have to know what you are upgrading and what you factors you upgrading. Or just say "get a Glock".
