I'm new to defensive carry. Still haven't gone for my ccw, but will before the end of October. What I want is a small compact or subcompact that will fit my larger than average sized hand and still be concealable. I also want something with knock-down power. I'm not sold on 9mm and their ability to only have to hit someone once before they hit the ground. I've ruled out the Tauras, everyone I know that's had one has had major misfire or jamming issues and I'm not fond of the proprietary nature of repairs on them either. I looked into Rugers but they were to heavy and awkward. Any thoughts, folks?
