    Newbie looking for advice on compact and sub-compact 9mm for CC.

    Hello Everyone...just got my CCW and looking to buy a compact/subcompact 9mm for CC. Have shot Glock 26/Sr9c. Glock 26 was accurate and felt ok in my hands but looking to spend a little less. Considering SW9v. Can go as high as 600 if neccessary but would really like to get something around 300 for carry. Considering HighPoint 9mm for nitestand. Any and all replies are appreciated. New to the whole shooting experience but I love it and am actually pretty good for a newbie. HELP !!! :

    You have quite a variance in price range among those listed. SW9V isn't as compact as the 26 SR9C.

    Why not use the same gun you CCW for night stand use?

    Rather than a G26 for carry and a HiPoint for the night stand, why not just get the compact Glock 19? You'll have higher capacity, longer sight radius, and a more controllable pistol, and you shouldn't have to go over $500. The subcompact Glocks aren't that much more concealable than the compacts when you get down to it

    Welcome to the forum! Kel Tec might be good for you.....if you can adapt to the trigger. If I couldn't pack a Glock, that would be my second choice. For what that's worth.

    first off I see you're retired is from military or something similiar? checking because if you like the glock most of them can be found for 400 add some nice night sights for an additional 60 and you have a carry gun and a night stand gun... no need to have two... I would also recommend the G23 so latter on you can buy a wold conversion barrel and shoot 9mm from the same gun cost around 99.00 Capture.jpg another option is the sig 2022 can be found for around 400 a little larger but very nice gun

    Welcome. Second the G19 idea, but sift through all the advice.

    Welcome from Virginia. You might also want to look for a used CZ75 P-01 or PCR. Should fit right into your price range, and CZ is one of the best kept secrets on the market.

    I do well with my Kel Tec Pf9 and Ruger Lc9. Both in your price range.

    Welcome from Wisconsin!

    Only you can decide, after doing research, which gun is best for you. How it feels in your hand & if you get a chance to shoot a few which feels best to shoot giving you the most accuracy. You're off to a good start in coming on a site like this & asking questions.

    I'm partial to Glock myself but there are many fine ones out there..

    This is the best advice you could ask for.

    Welcome form Ky. ,, look at the new shield by S&W / just look nice, never handled one, i do have a taurus slim, in 40 cal that i used to carry a lot, there are so many options, with the price range, go to a gun range if you can and rent a few and see what ya really like....... would use carry for nightstand also if price was an issue.....
