I've recently stumbled into the land of firearms, and have already done some researching and looking around for pistols. My main use is going to be concealed carry, so obviously my focus is on sub-compacts.
I've basically narrowed it down to the Springfield Armory XD Sub-Compact 9mm. Though, before dropping the money on one, I'd like to ask you people who are more knowledgeable if there are any alternatives to the XD9sc that includes this one feature:
Grip safety = I've looked at Glocks which don't have any manual safety features. And I've also looked at a number of other guns from S&W to Ruger which only seem to have thumb safeties. I realized that the grip-safety is my favorite type of safety, so I'd definitely want an alternative that has this feature.
If there are any, how do they compare to the XD9sc? Some other things that are important for me: ammo capacity (XD9sc has 13 which is great), 9mm caliber, trigger safety, as compact as possible, accurate, and it has to be reliable!
Thanks in advance :)
