Newbie here - just got my CHL. Looking for advice on a concealed carry. I was hell bent on a .45 ACP Springfield XD.. Have been looking around since - can't seem to make up my mind. I feel I definately want a .45 in something that shoots accurately enough - can be concealed easily, and that is enjoyable to shoot..
My other options I have considered are a sig220 carry - although still a bit bulky. The other is a glock - 30 or 36. The problem is I can't get over the lack of legitimate safety. The XD makes me feel a little more at ease holstering it without pushing the handle safety and the Sig has a hammer that requires at least 10lbs of pull initially.. The glock seems to much of a liability. But I guess you don't have to chamber a round - then what good is it when the time comes... I like the polymer frames - the fit my hand well. I'm scared of the really small 3" barrell ultra-compact handguns because their accuracy is highly diminished and my hands have a hard time fitting the handles.
These are my struggles - any insight??
