Hi, I'm new to your forum.
I just received my CWP and here's how I decided on a gun to carry.
I'm very familiar with the Beretta 92 FS and I set out to find a carry gun in 9mm. I did as much research online as possible and narrowed my choices down to 3: The Glock 26, Kahr PM9 and the Beretta 9000s.
I went to a local shop that happened to have all 3 guns in stock and I compared them side by side. The Glock and Kahr were both nice guns but I chose the Beretta 9000s based on feel in my hand, round capacity and value for the dollar. I have large hands and the Beretta grip fit the best for me. The Glock is 10 rounds, the Kahr 6 rounds and the Beretta is 12.
Also, the Beretta was considerably less expensive. The Kahr was a little under $600, the Glock was right around $500 and the Beretta was $359 (asking price). The best price I found online for the 9000s was $339 shipped. So after transfer ($25) and background ($5) that would have been $369. The local dealer did $349 plus tax ($21) and background ($5) so I was at $375 and got to deal with someone local.
So that's how I decided on a carry weapon. What were factors in your choice?
