I'd been looking hard at a revolver for my next carry piece after having some bad luck with the last auto I had purchased. It was a Kahr CW45, and it must have been made on a Monday is all I can say. Kahr typically makes great guns, and many people have great luck with them, this particular CW45 just didn't want to be my friend. Anyhow, I was pretty set on going in the revolver direction purely for dependability reasons.
I spent the last few days reading here and researching various firearms, and went to the local gun store today with plans on checking out Glock G19, and G26, along with the M&P 9 and 9c.
After much ado, the M&P 9c decided that it would like to come home with me. Below is a picture of today's purchase. He seems to be getting along well with his new friends.
