    IF/When I sell the Glock what should I get

    I have been able to do nothing more than hold these 3 guns im looking at in my hand..thats it..ive looked at the local ranges and no one has any available to shoot. I also dont know of anyone that has any of the 3 available to shoot either. so im going in kinda blind..but those are the 3 that ive studied gotten info on that seem to be what im looking for for CC..something Thin and that feels good in my hand. the 3 are in no particular order. Im not very worried about any weight issue as to me they are all light or at least not heavy after carrying a full size 1911 for a time..so none are any heavier than that :) . im also not worried about having a few rounds less than a double stack. I carry a 5 shot Snubby at times and feel just fine with that and 2 reloads(speed strips).

    I believe the Walther and the HK are around the same price. I can currently get the Walther PPS in 9mm or .40 for $585 I have seen the HK P7 for a bit less but thats not including shipping..ive seen the C grades for around $525-540+ shipping FFL deal probably comes out to around $570??? so almost the same as the PPS.
    The S&W I honestly dont know what a nice example goes for ive not seen one locally for some time now.

    So what should I target??

    1. S&W 3913
    2. Walther PPS
    3. HK P7
    4. Sig P239

    Sounds like you will need to handle each one to be sure it is right for you. Glocks fit my hand well, except for the subcompact models.

    Suggestions

    This is just my personal preference, but I would exclude the H&K because I don't like the feel of the squeeze cocking feature, and would go with the S&W 3913 or the Walther PPS. The S&W is a classic single stack 9mm with many fans, while the Walther is a new design with some interesting features. You might have trouble finding the S&W, however, as they are out of production and you have to locate a used one.

    I would also put Kahr into the mix, since you're looking for a single stack gun with thin profile. I've had very good experience with a Kahr MK9, the small all steel model. For your application the larger K9 (steel) or P9 (polymer) might be comparable to your other candidate guns.

    Finally you haven't mentioned the Sig P239, a single stack with aluminum frame that is comparable to the S&W 3913.

    Unless you're stuck with 9mm, grab a Glock-36, you won't believe the grip.
    It costs nothing to pick one up.

    Second for the PPS if the Glock doesn't fit your hand.

    I actually LOVE the squeeze cocker one of my favorite parts about that whole gun.The squeeze cocker was one of the reasons I wanted to get a P7 in my hand to see if Id like the squeeze cock part..and I loved it. But your right...I honestly did forget the Sig P239. So add the 239 to the list.

    ive read about too many problems with that Glock model..I was gonna check it out but I think im gonna skip it..out of all the Glocks ive read are reliable(and they are) thats the only one ive seen multiple reports of problems with. And yeah I was thinking of keeping it 9mm or .40 just because I have a good amount of bot ammos on hand and like both calibers..I would however be able to practice more with 9mm because of cost.

    How about getting a grip reduction on your Glock? If that is your only issue with it, it's an easy fix.

    sigh....I wish I had my G23 back. Or my G19....I always think the grip on a Glock is bad and I always come back to one or the other. Another G19 is in my future. I'll eventually learn my lesson and quit getting rid of them.
