For the first time since the bottom fell out, I'm going to get a bonus. She who must be obeyed has agreed to let me have some of it and I have been fantasizing while I await the cash. My thought has been to select a lightweight semi-auto for carry and a carbine of the same caliber for home defense. I have focused on 9MM for cost/availability's sake, and I also want to reduce my caliber assortment to a few key choices instead of the hodgepode I have now. I want to focus on bargain guns rather than the high end stuff. My thoughts now are:
--A Ruger SR9C (I like the feel and will add a hogue sleeve to flesh out the grip) and a Kel Tec Sub 2000
I am also pondering the M&P, but it costs more and the Ruger has a good reputation. And to complicate matters, I also have an RIA .45 so I could get a polymer .45 instead...and I like the idea of a Stoeger coach gun instead of the carbine! I know I'm taking you in a giant circle, but I've been doing it myself for weeks! I would appreciate any thoughts from the group, as there is a lot of knowledge here.
