    Welcome to my neighbor to the west from your neighbor in the Bluegrass state. Have you considered the Sig-Saure P365? IMO, it has less felt recoil than the Bodyguard.

    Oh yeah have shot the 365 and like how it felt but the issues they had when they first came out has me hesitant, plus the price tag. Currently I can pick up a shield 1.0 for 300$ or the ec9s for 200$ at my local rural king. These are my 2 top picks right now

    Welcome from the Texas Gulf Coast.

    For sheer dollar/performance value, the Taurus G2C is well under $200. IIRC there is still a $20-30 rebate on top of this price. I have no experience with one, but many reviews say it is a worthy gun for SD. It is about the same size as a Glock 19, so it isn't a pocket carry item.

    I owned a Taurus auto once and swore I'd never do it again lol. That being said they seem to have come a long way and that price is tough to beat. Only downside is there is so little aftermarket parts/holsters for these compared to glock,s&w, and ruger. Definitely give em a look though

    Welcome from FL. Indiana wants me, Lord I can't go back there.

    No suggestion for your upgrade. There are tons of pistoles available, but only you know what you'll like.

    @frydarinj I almost hate to say it, but if it is aftermarket you need, Glock is so far ahead of everyone else, it just isn't funny.

    Welcome. For Budget single 9s I'd give a nod to the ec9s and the shield. Aftermarket would be stronger for the shield. Glad you're here. Stay safe.

    Kinda what I'm leaning towards. Can always put another trigger on it if feel the need. Lots of options for holsters as well
