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.

Welcome to this great forum. Glad to see another from my area. I am in Neosho and make it over your way far too often.

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.
