    If you were to wish to transit to Alaska, the 4.5 would not be a 'Prohibited' firearm in / through Canada.

    Handguns with a barrel length of less than 105mm [4.13 inches] are prohibited.

    I'm 6' 185 lbs; I have no problem carrying a G21 .45 ACP concealed.
    I'm too young to be this old!

    To me an inch in length isn't a big deal, but the handle is what prints, so an inch in height can make or break you.

    What I like about the Ruger SR9c is that with the 10 rd magazine it's very compact and easy to wear, but with the 17 rd mag it feels and operates just like a full-size SR9. These are questions you have to answer for yourself.

    To answer the OP's question:

    S&W M&P, oh I'm sorry that was not the question.

    I'd buy American when I can, and would go with the shorter barrel.

    No argument other than the XD has gotta be one of the ugliest, cartoonish looking guns made.

    As for your mom, just tell her to stay in the house, and leave the woods alone.
    Ignorance is a long way from stupid, but left unchecked, can get there real fast.

    Given your size, I would think you don't have thin delicate fingers;-) So the length of the grip might become important on how it feels in your hand. If you can't hold it well, you won't feel comfortable and won't shoot it well. I would say feel them out in your hand before you make your decision. I agree that a longer barrel gives a more accurate sight picture, but doesn't make a diff if you are fumbling with it...
