    New Kid on the Block

    I just signed on, from San Diego....I am LE and I CCW my Glock 23 or Smith 5-shot titanium 357 w/38's. I am contemplating a Glock 36 and have recently been looking into the Ruger P345? I am 6'4" 240 so I can get away with most any gun, but I prefer small and light. Any input on the Glock 36 vs the P345 is appreciated. I also own a Sig P220 compact (which isn't much of a compact) and numerous rifles.

    Welcome to the forum from Colorado . In your quest dont overlook the S&W M&P line , i suspect once you shoot one you would be impressed , and they more or less fit into the size envelope you specified .
    Make sure you get full value out of today , Do something worthwhile, because what you do today will cost you one day off the rest of your life .
