    Get ur self a SW model 642 without the lock while you can....
    The police are not there to protect you from crime, they are there to arrest the guy after the crime has been committed, assuming they find him. It is your responsibility to protect yourself and your family.

I remember looking at it once before and after going back to the Kahr site it jogged my memory as to why I did not consider it further... it is too small. I got small in my P380 and love it. The G19 is about the right size.

    Wow... just looked at the new Springfields... they are nice.

    Sonnie,
    I have been using a "ugly brick" Glock 26 as my EDC and absolutely love it. It will be my EDC for a while.

    On the other hand, I bought a Springfield XDM9 with 4.5" barrel today and...... WOW. That is one sweet piece. Very nice to shoot just a little big for my EDC.

    On the Px4, I sold my full size 45. I never really got attached to it. Just too bulky and heavy. I really felt like i was carrying a cannon instead of a handgun. I looked at a compact but decided against it for the same reason.

    Good luck and I hope you pick the best for you!

    Richard... my buddy at the pawn shop has one for $320 and already has it put aside for me. I had decided last week to get one. I think I am going to pick up a 442 and a 642. One for my sister at work.

    Tim... did you consider the 3.8" model so that you might could carry it... or is it still too big. I am thoroughly impressed with all the features it has. I hope it shoots as good as it looks.

    If you're seriously looking for a compact in .40 cal and you like M&P's, then the M&P 40c is the way to go.

    CZ 75 Compact. All steel frame, 14 + 1, perfect CZ ergonomics. It's a must-buy.

    I believe I am going to stick with a 9mm. I am not as fond of the S&W compacts as I am their full size M&P models.

    The CZ is not hammerless, but it does appear to be a nice gun and I have read a lot of good things about it.

    Right now the XD(M) is leading the way... it's a few bullets ahead.
