Smile Concealed weapon

Well, I passed my Carry Concealed Weapon course today. Now i just need to get a piece to conceal. I'm thinkin i want to go with a 9mm. Ammo is cheaper and can hold more rounds and has less recoil than a .40 or a .45. I'm just not sure which 9mm to get. I'm thinkin either the Glock 17 (i think its 17) subcompact or the Springfield XD subcompact. Have any of you shot either of these? Any other suggestions on gun or caliber?

Just my 2 cents.

I'm not a Glock fan at all big bulky and I've had to many feed problems. I would go with the springfeild but I also like sig's.

Congrats! You have taken advantage of a right that all Americans should take advantage of while we are still allowed. I got mine very soon after SC offered them.

As far as what to carry.....whatever you're comfortable carrying. It's not likely that you will need a lot of rounds or should be concerned with recoil. Find something that is concealable and is simple to operate under stressful conditions. This means a revolver in my book.....a large capacity auto to others. Look at holsters and make sure you are comfortable with the weapon in its concealed location. Usually the smaller the better.

Just my $.02.

I carry a Smith & Wesson Model 640 .38 special J-frame 2" snubnose 5 shot revolver. Mine is stainless and a little heavy but it shoot great. I never have to worry about it ever jamming and is surprisingly accurate. I also put a crimson trace laser grip on it to pimp it out a little.

The model shown below is the airweight....which will probably be my next carry gun.

Crimson Trace Lasergrips - LG-405 for S&W J-Frame

I'm in between big guns right now but I have a sweet lil S&W 38 special air weight. Its the most accurate revolver I have ever shot. Great back up gun.

Yeah i know of a few guys that have sigs. They seem to like them too. I personally kinda like the glocks, ive fired a glock 27 and it didnt seem too bulky to me anyway, and i figure the 17 would be less bulky. Ive never fired the springfield so im not really sure whether id like it or not.

I have a springfield xd .45 service model. Visit the Gun shops in your area and they may have a rental program that you can shoot the gun of your choice and see what byou are comfortable with.

I'm not real big on the revolvers, i like the lighter trigger of the semi autos and also the capacity of them.

How do you like your XD? How's that palm safety, does it work ok or has it ever caused you any problems?

I like a Glock over anything else.
