    cheap is different then retaining value. Having something ultra-standard and common (Glock or XD) makes buying and selling it used fairly simple. Most used Glocks that I have seen are around $100 less then the new ones...

    you could just buy a used one now...save the $100 to break it in.

    edit: Oh good choice!

    What store was this? It might be worth a drive if I ever want another one!

    It is law enforcement only. If you are LE, it is a great shop.

    OK...being a longtime hunter, I have always dealt with safeties, and I cannot get it out of my mine. I have heard the pros and cons, and just think I may want it. The gun that meets all criteria is the Ruger SR9. I believe it is larger than Glock 26? Anyone have comments on this? Right now I will be getting the Glock 26 unless I here good comments about the Ruger SR9. Then I may consider that one.

    I love the SR9. Bought it pre-recall.

    Nice and thin, full-size grip is still thin, 17+1 rounds, ruger quality 3-dot fully adjustable sights. The trigger started out kind of numb but got better, and then I had to break it in again after the recall. Its pretty good now, but I still might have my -smith see what he can do. By no means is it a match trigger, but it is still quite a bit lighter than the DA pull on a stock GP100. I think that they advertise a 7lb pull, its all of that.

    Regardless, its a very well balanced gun in a sweet little package. Feeds everything, even empty brass. Easy to take down, easy to clean. easy to put back together.

    My only gripe is that no one is making night sights for it yet. I bug Trijicon on a monthly basis, but no dice quite yet.

    I Don't think you will be disappointed.

    Might know what I'd go with. I'm sort of biased that way.

    Good choice on the G26. It's the safe pick IMO. You may still want to consider the G27 though for a little more firepower in the same physical size gun. You can still get an extra 9mm barrel to swap out and shoot cheaper 9mm ammo at the range if you want to.

    For tuckable IWB holsters...

    Checkout, if you can wait a little:
    -K&D Dakota Defender
    -Milt Sparks VMII

    If you need a holster quickly (and/or while you wait):
    -MTAC
    -High Noon Split Decision

    I have 3 out of 4 of the above (don't have a VMII) and like them all. The Dakota Defender is my favorite. There's a lot of other good choices out there also. Might as well make room for a bunch of holsters now. Holster buying is an addiction.

    Good luck.

    All of the given choices are small enough, reliable enough, and inexpensive enough to make reasonably good concealled carry pieces. They are all also fairly heavy. In 9mm, why not go with a KelTec PF-9. When I'm willing to carry a heavier gun, then I want a bigger caliber.

    I have no problem with carrying 9mm. With right ammo, it will be an excellent defensive gun. That way I shoot with same gun in every way that I plan to protect with. As for the KelTec, I originally considered this gun but was told by quite a few to stay away from KelTec. Unfortunately for me that is all I have to go on. Thanks for the advice though, always willing to learn.

    They're all excelent choices. Try to get a hand on all of the and make your decision based upon your own ergonomics and preference of operations.

    OK, I have been told I would be doing myself a disservice if I do not try the Taurus Millenium Pro. It meets most of my criteria, just have not heard a lot about it. If I like the feel and shoot, would it be a mistake to consider? I know the original Millenium series was a piece of junk, but it appears Taurus has turned it around.

    Current production is at least 4rth gen (if not 5th).

    I carried a 3rd gen., wore out the mag catch after 4500 rounds and it would no longer hold in mags after it was shot. Taurus would not send me a stinking mag catch by itself. They've upgraded to a DA/SA pistol from the DAO and straight 8 sights.

    I'd really like to get one honestly.

    Glock 26 or Sig 239, in that order.

    The 9mm Glocks are about the most reliable autos on the market and the only ones that are in the same league are a lot more expensive (SIG, maybe H&K).

    The 26 is easy to conceal, has a decent capacity, is accurate, and can use the mags for the larger models (19 and 17) if desired. There are also a huge number of holsters available.
    I'd actually recommend the 19 as it is not that much harder to conceal but is easier to shoot and holds a few more rounds.
