    This is easy: Glock 37 in 45 GAP, brand new @ $379 or Sig P250 9mm @ $399...delivered...from Buds. I bought the G37 as a truck gun, but loved it so much it's now my SHTF gun, house gun, range/fun gun and truck gun. You can't beat it with a stick!

    And like I said, we CAN NOT carry at work. Weapons are not permitted in the building also.

    You can say that. Has some bars, metal detectors, lots of felons live there.
    Forgot to mention that in the original post. Sorry, my bad.

    Only other new gun I can think of would be a Sigma. Summit gunbrokers has some pretty good deals on Glock police trade-ins.

    Look hard for a used Glock.
    I would not want to keep a gun in the car on a daily basis unless you could find a place to HIDE in the trunk area. Then you have to be able to put it there and retrieve it without being seen. Still not a great idea.

    I work Ypsi some days. I vote the used XD.

    If you would like to try an XD9sc before you buy, you can try mine.

    Older ruger: good. BUT very big IF you were thinking of carrying it , say into a store on the way home or such. Personally, for the money, I own a P-11 for exactly the same reason. I leave it locked in my vehicle during the day in my employers fenced gated private lot.
    Light enough to carry for on- the- way -home errands, etc.
    I wanted something light enough, inexpensive enough, and with a decent round count for its size.
    I don't think much comes close to it on any of those counts.
    One can be had for around $250 now,
    Here are the Specs on it.
    You just can't beat it.
    This is why I didn't get a small snubbie.
    I have over 6-700 rounds through it without an issue.


    TECHNICAL SPECIFICATIONS

    Calibers: 9 x 19 mm Luger
    Weight unloaded: 14 oz. 400g
    Loaded magazine: 6 oz. 159g
    Length: 5.6" 142mm
    Height: 4.3" 109mm
    Width: 1" 26mm
    Barrel Length: 3.1" 79mm
    Sight radius: 4.6" 116mm
    Muzzle Energy Max: 400ft-lbs 540J
    Capacity: 10 + 1
    Trigger Pull: 9 lbs 40N

    For around 20 oz. loaded you will be hard pressed to beat it for a scrub gun, that if stolen, God forbid, you are not out a whole heckuva lot.

    I had a Kel Tec P-11 one time but got rid of it after I had some FTF issues. Cleaned it up and buffed it out, still had issues.
    Thanks though for the recommendation.

    South of 94 ain't bad here. The bad areas are up near the university and across the railroad tracks.
    We stick together down here by the lake.

    You should take a look at the S&W Sigma. Generally found for around $270 after the factory $50 rebate (unless you opt for the two free mags). Hi-cap in 9mm or .40.

    Thanks for all the suggestions.
    I bought a G22, 2nd generation. Couldn't pass it up for the price.
