    New Member(s) from Mid-Michigan

    Been a constant reader of DC and finally just decided to join. Derrick and Lisa from Michigan here.. I(d) originally from northwest Ohio. I have had my ccw for a few years now been shooting for 20+. Just getting my lady into ccw,cpl.

    I carry a S&W m&p 9c. I absolutely love it. I love Smiths in general so post to come may be biased!

    Looking for a suitable carry for her.. Mostly all purse carry. Must be 9mm, not glock, and semi auto. Options so far:
    1) S&W m&p 9c
    2) Springfield xdm 9 3.8
    3) walther pps 9

    Thanks all!!

    Welcome from Virginia.

    Might also want to consider the Kahr CW9 or the S&W Shield 9mm.

    Welcome from Wisconsin, Derrick & Lisa! Since you know & like the M&P9C & since that was the first one on your list that's what I would suggest. I'll add another - the M&P Shield in 9MM. I know nothing about it but what I've read & so far it's all been positive. The biggest problem I've heard about is availability. They're hard to find & you'll probably get one on backorder eventually. You might get lucky as some onsite have been & get one soon so it doesn't hurt to ask. At this time I've been eyeing the M&P 40C. I've been wanting to get a Glock 23 but I can't seem to find a good price on a new one. I can get a fairly good Military discount on the M&P. My son uses the full size .40 at the Police Academy & he loves it. That's the same that he'll be issued when he graduates. He's a Glock man with the G23 I gave him & his G21 .45 cal. I like the adjustable grip sizes on the M&Ps.

Can't get my hands on some, been trying for a few months.. would love to shoot it, heard only positives. Plus it's a Smith.. haha! Trigger on the Kahrs was what sue didn't like.

    Welcome from Lansing!

    It is heavier than some like, but consider the CZ 2075 RAMI.

    Welcome Derrick and Lisa to the Forum, from SE Michigan.

    Welcome from South Carolina...
    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.
