    Sub compact

    Alright I'm going to have about $500
    To play with for a new gun. What would be your suggestions for a sub compact? Want something light and best bang for my buck. I'm a little new to the gun world, but am tyring to learn as quickly as I can, so its really nice to hear the feedback from you guys. I'm really open to anything.

    I think your HTC is a racist lol. I have a Glock 26 and it really is a great gun, but I am also considering getting a S&W M&P 9C.

    Best bang for buck should get you into a Glock G27. If five bills don't get you there and ammo to boot, let me know.

    Glock 26 or Glock 27...Highly reliable, goes bang when you need it!
    Sometimes in life you have to stand your ground. It's a hard lesson to learn and even most adults don't get it, but in the end only I can be responsible for my life. If faced with any type of adversity, only I can overcome it. Waiting for someone else to take responsibility is a long fruitless wait.

    The Glock-26 suggested above is good, but if you like bigger holes and a 'slightly' smaller grip, try the Glock-36...it's a winner!

    Saying "best bang for my buck" can mean whatever; what caliber do you want, what type of action do you prefer, how do you dress, what is the mag capacity you want? These are some of the few things you should think about before you spend your hard earned money on a gun that you might not like later. IMO, if you are new to guns a light sub-compact might not be the very best idea; lightweight subs are easy to conceal and carry, but they might not be that easy to shoot, and they are not the best range-guns you can get. Good luck!

    I have a G27,its a reliable shooter but kinda bulky
    I prefer slimmer guns,slim 9s are easy ,even my 442 snubby is easier to
    wear IWB than my G27 -

    G26/G27 are some of the best subcompacts on the market IMO. If you want something slimmer, check out single stacks like the Kahr CM9 and Beretta Nano.

    I think the best value out there for a newer shooter in a sub compact is the G26. Its easy to shoot and ammo is affordable, even though its a sub compact it is still easy to learn on, and it will still be a relevant choice once you become a seasoned shooter/CCW'r.

    IMHO I think the glock 26 would be a bad choice. I realized you said sub compact but the G19 holds 5 more rounds and its only an ounce heavier, and depending on your size and dedication, very concealable. Maybe an xdm or M&P. If it must be a glock then go with a G30. It's O so smooooooth.

    I agree the G19 is a better all a round gun, but the OP specifically asked for a sub compact. If round count was a concern, he could use G19 or G17 mags.
