    9mm in the $500 Market

    My friend who got his CCW permit with me is in the market for a 9mm. He has fired my Glock 23 (40 S&W) and liked it. Therfore, a Glock 19 may be his answer. He does not want a full size weapon.

    I have read the other 9mm post, however, I am trying to narrow the search a little. What other 9mm do you all recommend in the $500 market?

    Thanks,

    NavDoc

    Same answer I gave in the other thread: Glock 19 or 26, or a Kahr CW9.

    A few more bucks will get you a thinner gun that will conceal much easier. Look at the Walther PPS or the Kahrs for something nice and thin. I prefer German engineering but the Kahrs are nice too.

    The Glock 19 first, but I am also a huge fan of the CZ75, check it out. Affordable, reliable and accurate.

    I'll agree with the chunky nature of the XD, owb is almost a must.

    Glock 26 gets my vote. Lots of accessories available. Can use Glock 17 or 19 mags to increase your round count if needed.

    Kahr P9 on sale. I've seen them at gun shows for that price. Very slim and easy to carry. 8 or 9 rounds depending on the magazine. I love mine and have never had a FTF or FTE.

    I think Glock 19 is hands down best all around 9mm in that price range.

    All the ones mentioned are my favs for CC 9's: Kahr (CW9, PM9, P9, MK9), M&Psc, XDsc, G26, and Walther PPS (I prefer the compacts for IWB, ankle, etc. carry). If you intend to OWB carry, others like the G19, CZ75, Ruuger, etc. also become options.

    Not a bad one in the bunch of the ones mentioned. Find one that fits your hand and that you shoot well.

    Smaller Glock? 9mm?
    It has to be a G-19...I have one...great to conceal.
