I have been perusing the forum the last few days and thinking about my next handgun for the past month. Here are my thoughts and concerns.
I have been considering a 9mm compact (my hands are too big for a subcompact) for eventual concealed carry. I currently own a Springfield XD full size, but I would be a little concerned to carry that cocked as there's no manual safety or long DA pull to lessen chances of a discharge. Yes I know there's the grip safety, but that would most likely be depressed when holstering the gun. Also, I want another pistol so I might as well get one that's smaller and more concealable.
I have looked at and fired the Sig p239 but it is heavy for a compact, although it does have the safety and DA/SA ability a Springfield or glock lacks.
Other than those mentioned, what else is a good option? Reliability is most important followed by concealability, and then cost.
Lastly, I am more interested in a higher capacity pistol vs 1911 or revolver because Maryland may have a future magazine size limit.
I appreciate the feedback.
