I'm looking to purchase my first CCW. I have experience shooting and carrying the Beretta 9mm in the USCG, but not any experience concealing. I've done as much research as my eyes could handle, and narrowed it down to 5 choices, which I shot at the range today- all 9mm except the Taurus (S&W M&Pc, Sig p250, SA XD, Walther PPS, Taurus Millenium .45). After shooting these, two finalists emerged- the M&Pc and the PPS.
The PPS is much more concealable, and I think I'd be more confident carrying it. My 'gripes' with is the trigger guard mag release is kind of weird to me, and the smaller frame size caused a wider grouping then i'm used to. The M&Pc had much tighter grouping and was more comfortable to shoot, however the slide release was really hard to depress, the recoil spring was really tight and it's significantly wider.
My newbie question is- do I go for the more initially accurate gun, or the more easily concealable one. I'm leaning towards the PPS because I think practice practice practice will help with the accuracy. Any and all thoughts appreciated. Thanks!
