    Agreed. You are less than $200 away from a brand new XD9. If the SC is more money, go for the Compact instead.

    Remember . . . . Glocks suck. XD's rock! (poking fun here at the Block guys)
    I am consistently on record and will continue to be on record as opposing concealed carry.

    I took my Pro 140 out today and ran 100 rounds through it. Flawless and happy with the buy. thought it would be a bit rough on my hands with the .40 cal but im fine. stripped and cleaned it now just to find a place that sells some nice hollow points

    Go revolver. You might want to look around for a quality .38, .357, or (if you are feeling lucky punk), a .44.

    I did get to handle a S&W Sigma today but it did feel a bit odd
    Shot an XD9 sub and a Kahr CW-9 side by side the other day at the range. Both are great for concealed carry, and I was surprised that the recoil on the CW-9 was quite manageable. Both were very accurate at 7 yards (the long pull on the CW-9 takes a bit getting used to; despite what Kahr says, it's actually a DAO). I've put about 300 rounds through my CW-9 since, and have started carrying it everywhere I go. So if you're looking for an easily-concealed handgun, you could probably pick up a CW-9 for $400 or a bit less.

    Why wait?

    Wow. Hard choice. My vote would be for a Sig 229 used or an XD used. My personal favorite right now is the Smith M&P but a little outside of your price range. Also another personal favorite is any of the CZs. Great gun for the money and just outside of your price range. I like the P-01 in 9MM.
