    Mission Accomplished...almost

    Recently got my CC license her in CT. Took exactly 6 weeks to get it. Now the fun part of choosing a carry gun begins.
    So far I've shot the XDM, and SR9 in 9mm trim. (others as well but in diff. caliber) I'd like to stay with the 9mm as a CC.
    Now that the SR9c has been released I may be leaning towards that. At $369 it's a great buy.
    I'll keep you posted as to the final decision.

    Try the S&W M&P. The 9mm comes in fullsize, compact, and a Pro series. It also has 3 different sized palm grips. I liked the XDM, but the grip was just a bit too big & chunky for my hand.

    The M&P, while not the sexiest gun out there, is super reliable.

    Freedom doesn't mean safe, it means free.

    The thing about "defense" is that it has practically nothing to do with guns. (As passed on by CCW9MM)

    Like 9MMare said, try the M&P. I own several Glocks and a couple XD's, but the M&P 40c I shot fit my hand like no other. Not to knock the SR9, which i think is a great pistol, but try to shoot a variety before you buy. I wish I had done the same before i bought my first pistol, a Sigma 9v

    Absolutely. I'm all about it.
    I have started going to the local range and taking advantage of their rentals. I will shoot as many as possible before making a final decision.
    I'll even try the .380 compact reolvers and give em a go.

    Cool

    Checkout the Kahr line. Specifically designed for comfortable carry while being very concealable. Love my CW9. I truely forget I'm carrying. Larger guns are like a brick and I tend to leave them home more.

    +1 there.

    One of the easiest 9mm CC pistols I have ever owned. It's a keeper and at around $400 and change.
