We purchased our first handgun a few months back (Glock 21SF) and absolutely LOVE it. I say we because my wife loves it as much as I do and it has been deemed her carry weapon. We both get pretty good grouping on it, even with stock sights. Now with it being a double-stack .45 and a glock, as many others have said prior, it prints in clothing easily (with the holster I have...possible holster is contributing) to its bulk and therefore pretty much eliminates it as a CCW w/out having to use the jacket/trenchcoat (Atlanta + coat = not happening except in Jan-Feb).
I'd like to stay w/ a .45 because of price point. We're not going to be moving to reloading ANY time in the near future, if ever. So having ammo that we both use for range and defense is important.
That being said...I'd like if at all possible to be under $700.
Now the additional delimma or whatever you wanna call it is that I'm a chunky dude (6'1", 245). Not gunna lie...my gut ends up pushing my pants below my waste quite often, even when I crank my belt as tight as I can. This plus a loaded 21SF will result in my gun not being the only thing no longer concealed given the right circumstances.
As a member of a local gun club/range, I get unlimited rentals at no extra charge. I'd like to get some solid recommendations, grab a box of .45 ACP, and go through the rentals to see which fits my hand the best. I'm just simply not aware of the options w/in my price point.
Thanks in advance.
