    New member from SC

    Hello to all!

    I am in Upstate SC and have recently gotten my permit in the last month. I have been carrying everyday since. I carry a Bersa Thunder .380 in a Comp-Tac IWB Kydex holster. I also have a Kel-Tec P3AT (2nd gen) that I am breaking in. Next week I will be making a 9mm purchase. I am considering SW99, Taurus Millenium, or a Glock. Any input or other suggestions would be great!

    I enjoy reloading my own ammo, I have two boys and a lovely wife, very active in my church, and I am a member of USCCA, NRA, and SC-grassroots.

    I am glad to be here and have read some excellent posts so far. I hope to contribute and learn.

    Greetings and welcome tech-ninja.

    Hope you enjoy the forum.

    Personally I would get the Glock, but that's just me.

    Welcome to the forum, tech-ninja! Sounds like you have some good choices for a 9mm; what specific features, etc. are you looking for? Any specific size - compact/full-size?

    My favorite 9mm is the CZ P-01; not as common as other guns, but very well-made. 14+1 capacity, DA/SA with decocker, aluminum frame & steel slide, light rail on the dust cover, and excellent ergonomics (at least for me). If you're not into the lightrail the PCR is available.

    tech - welcome along

    I have a SW99 and tho it is only carry now and again - I do like this quite diminutive gun and for me it shoots remarkably well. While checking out some stuff on my SIG 226 this last few days have carried that SW99.
