    [QUOTE=LanceORYGUN;1869464]In your price range, I think that the S&W M&P 45 compact is the best choice. It is really about the ideal size for a concealed carry 45, and is a striker trigger system gun, just like the Glock. You can even get it with an optional manual safety, if you would like to have one.




    What Lance said,

    I've got a 9c and they are really great pistols.

    Plus I'll throw out there the FN line of pistols, are between $5-600.
    They are kind of big, but on the lighter side than a 1911/w more rounds.
    Very well made, in the USof A

    What Lance and OneShot said.

    M&P45 compact. It is the ideal size for CC... You can also take a full Size M&P45 mag with a grip extension on it to the range or for home protection, for that extra couple round capacity.

    Accuracy ALWAYS WINS! So carry what you can hit with.

    If you find yourself in a fair fight your tactics stink.

    Again.....thx for the input all. I decided on something a little bigger than I initially wanted. I couldn't ignore the fact that I wouldn't be comfortable with a weapon for defense if I wasn't comfortable with the weapon. I went with the one that I'm shooting best with and feels best in my hand... the Sig P220. I will still be getting a better holster (Don Hume 715 currently) and MUCH better belt (this stretchy Target thing on my waist now doesn't count). Even with this holster I can appendix carry sitting & standing with little to no printing. At the 3:30-4:30, not so much. The holster has no cant or capability w/out just pushing it sideways.
