    Getting a new CC weapon, opinions?

    Well, it's now time to get a better Sub or Compact autoloader for primary CCH. I really like a SA/DA hammered gun, but the Glocks have a smooth enough trigger pull, and a single action 1911 is OK too. I've narrowed it down to these.

    in the Sub compact catagory...
    --H&K P2000Sk in a .40
    --Glock 27 (.40)
    --Glock 30 (.45)
    --Walther P99C (.40)

    and the Compacts...
    --H&K USP Compact .40 or .45
    --Kimber Ultra Carry 1911
    --Sig 239

    any more suggestions are welcome.

    Which one do you shoot the best? Your entire list looks like decent choices.

    Of the ones you have listed I would go for the Sig 239.

    GLock 36 is a good choice too. A bit slimmer in the hand.

    Choosing from your list, I'd buy the 239 in 9mm. For other suggestions, I'd take a look at a Kahr K9 or P9. I'd also strongly consider a Glock 19 or 23, you will be supirsed how well they carry for a mid size gun.

    I would have to say G19/G26 or anyother variant or a Kimber Ultra.

    The p239 is the most "refined" if there is such a thing, and REALLY accurate. But the Glock is what I voted for. They are like a Toyota or Honda...just can't kill em. They do not stop. You will also find parts and aftermarket accessories much easier. I also agree with SIXTO the midsize Glocks are very easy to carry. I carry a g23 in a "cheap" Don Hume IWB and it disappears when you find that magic sweet spot on your body to let it ride.

    looks like all good guns to me too.
    But I do like sub compacts better for a CCW

    I have an H&K USPc in .45. In all honesty, it is too big and bulky for me to carry it comfortably and regularly. I love the way it shoots and feels in my hand, but I just don't consider it a carry weapon.

    Gave my recommendation, but didn't vote since there was no "other" box to check.
