    Hello from Springfield, Mo

    Hi, just found this forum. I really like it.I used to be mostly at BladeForums.com I was always a BIG time knife guy. I grew up around guns, mostly hunting rifles. I recently purchased my first pistol at age 35. It is a skyy, now changed to sccy cpx-1 9mm. Then last week I picked up a Taurus 85 ultralite in .38 special. I decided the sccy is not for me after a hundred rounds and a bloody thumb. The grip is just a bit too large. The Taurus feels great, but I have yet to fire it. I don't have my CCW, yet. I am planning on taking the class next month. Luckily in Mo we can carry concealed in our cars with no permit, so I can kinda get used to carrying. Anyway great forum, any suggestions on a replacement 9mm for the sccy?

    Welcome from Pennsylvania. Congrats on the Taurus 85! I don't know much about the Skyy but get the impression their product is questionable. As far as a replacement in 9mm there are many choices depending on what you are looking for.

    Hi and welcome from Fort Worth TX!

    As for another 9mm, I carry a Walther PPS. Jump over to Concealed Carry Discussion: Concealed Carry Guns and you'll get a lot of good information. Truth is, there are a lot of great choices out there, so don't look for the "one best gun!" You might instead ask for which brands/models to avoid.

    Welcome from Montana.


    When you’re wounded and left on Afghanistan’s plains,
    And the women come out to cut up what remains,
    Just roll to your rifle and blow out your brains,
    And go to your God like a soldier.
