Maybe the gun I want doesn't exist maybe it does. I carry in the appendix IWB position so a a shorter barrel is a plus. I figure some where between a Glock 26 and an M&P midsize. I have just discovered the 45 caliber and I like it. I realize most guns are more accurate than the shooter but still. I also realize for defensive purposes most shots will be within 7 yards. Ok I want to stretch a little further. I spend a fair amount of time in a rural setting and an armadillo may present itself at 25 yards. Guess paper plate or smaller at 25 yrds. Is want id like. Would like to limit budget to $600 including tax.
