    New from Alabama

    Hello all,

    I am a new member from Huntsville, AL. Looking for information on choosing a concealed carry weapon.

    I am partial to an SR9c, but am open to XD and Glock.

    Any recommendations?

    Hello, WDM, and welcome from Missouri to a great forum. Lot of info here on the concealed carry gun sub-forum for you to check out diffedrent handguns. You might consider if you want CC as pocket carry or inside belt carry for size. I am liking the S&W M&P Shield or Taurus 709 Slim in 9mm for CC.

    Welcome from Wisconsin.

    I have a Ruger SR9c. Excellent firearm. I also own a few M&Ps. Can't really go wrong with any of the polymer striker-fired pistols. Ruger SR series, S&W M&Ps, Glock, Springfield XD, XDm, Kahr etc. Just a matter of personal preference after that.

    Welcome from South Carolina.... Check out the "Sticky" on choosing a weapon....Lots of good advice in it...
    Sometimes in life you have to stand your ground. It's a hard lesson to learn and even most adults don't get it, but in the end only I can be responsible for my life. If faced with any type of adversity, only I can overcome it. Waiting for someone else to take responsibility is a long fruitless wait.

    Welcome aboard. Agreed on checking out the sticky thread on choosing a weapon. Having said that, it's tough to go wrong with a Glock or XD if it works for you.
