    Looking for High Capacity 9mm, NO Glocks, what do you shoot and carry?

    Just got rid of my Glock 19 gen4 no more Glocks.

    I want a 9mm with either a DA trigger or DA/SA trigger that is concealable so compact or sub-compact. What do you like?

    In a DA/SA format I favor the Sig 228/229, but I'd also suggest the HKP2000, or P2000SK. There's the S&W M&P9c ("similar" to DAO) The Beretta PX4 has been getting high marks as well.

    I'd go with the Sig too, but I'd do a little more looking and find a 228 before I settled with a 229. I'd also consider the M&P series. If I had money burning a hole in my pocket, I'd buy an HK. But since your scorned at Glock, I don't think you'll be happy with HK's customer service.

    I think you should look at the 3rd generation glock. I had a bad glock experience back in the day with a .40 model 27 and I picked up a 17 and 29 and couldnt be happier. Otherwise the M&P, XD, and Sig lines are all worth a look.

    Sig

    I use a Sig P239, which is a single stack, 8+1 capacity 9mm and may not meet everybody's definition of "high capacity". But it is a gun with a fairly thin grip and slide so it conceals well, and is plenty for my needs. Extra magazines are compact and fit in a pocket. I can't conceive of an encounter where 9 rounds in the gun won't be enough, but then I often carry a revolver. If I did need 15+1 rounds in the gun I have a Glock 19 to fall back on.

    My second choice if you wanted a double stack magazine would be the Sig P228 or the H&K P2000SK.

    Look at CZ, they are superb handguns. The Rami is about the same sizes as the G26.



    When I leave the home port:
    S&W 642 Airweight, Ruger SP 101, Colt Detective Spec., CZ RAMI, Kahr PM9, Kahr CW40, S&W Model 10-7, Glock 30, 19, and 26, Browning Hi Power, CZ82, Colt Commander, Dan Wesson PM7, Ruger LCP

    Springfield XD9 might be a nice option.

    10+1 in a kel-tec P11 compliments your 642

    you wont shot it as a fun range gun--just enough to be proficient with it for SD
    at under a pound and 1 inch thin...its in a place all by itself.
    Be aware, be deliberate in your actions and be accurate.

    I carry a Taurus 24/7 Pro DS most days. It can be carried SA with safety on, or decocked and carried DA/SA with safety either on or off. 17+1 if you choose. I stick with 17. Not one single issue with the gun in thousands and thousands of rounds of all types.

    If you want smaller than the 4" barrel they make a CC version. I think now they have a Gen 2 out, but have no info on them. You may not be fond of newly released guns from your previous experience.

    Let the flaming begin.

    Just remember that shot placement is much more important with what you carry than how big a bang you get with each trigger pull.

    Another vote for Ruger SR9c. Mine is my best shooting gun in my hands... Even better then my SIG's
    I would go for the SIG 229 secondly
