Talking First time handgun owner from SC! (CCW reccommendations?!)

Hi all,

Was recently gifted my first handgun and am proud to say it's an XD-9 Service . The forum and its members have reassured me of the quality of this gift. Hopefully I'll be able to expand on my collection in the near future.

Have shot a few pistols of the XD/(m) platforms before and love them.

I'll be looking to purchase a CCW as soon as I complete my CHL training and turn 21, so I have a few months to decide. I'm strongly considering XDs/XDm-9 3.8"/XD-9 sc. 5'9" and about 140. Any suggestions?

Thanks

Are you wanting to stick with 9mm? If so, Sig P938, Smith & Wesson M&P Shield, Kahr CM9 or PM9 and the Glock 26 are the most popular subcompacts out there.

Yea, I'll probably stick to 9mm unless I go with the XDs...

...which is VERY tempting. The double stack mags on the 26 are a little cumbersome for what I think I'd like in a CCW, but with that being said, I've never carried so I can't say.

I have the XD 9sc and the XDm 3.8c in 9mm and love them both great shooters and very easy to conceal. I also have a single stack 9 for those times when you need a little less mine is a pt709 (bought only because I could not find a shield) shoots ok once you get used to it. good luck in your quest

chris, as a new shooter I haven't been able to tell how my accuracy will vary with the smaller guns that you can generally only wrap two fingers around. I feel like I'd probably carry with the extended mag that comes with those guns so I can get my pinky on (for better grip/capacity). Thoughts?
