    Good Sub-compact for the price

    I am looking for a good sub-compact to carry over the summer. All I have is a standard addition glock and want something a bit smaller. Anyone know of a well priced good sub compact? Please let me know

    Have you thought about a smith and wesson 442 with a crimson trace grip? That and a good pocket holsterfrom Pocket Holsters and you are well on your way. I know that you said " for the price" but you really do get what you pay for.

    I believe you mentioned you had a Glock 22c in a previous thread. I will agree that is a tough pistol to conceal especially during the summer. Since you already have a Glock and it is already chambered for the .40 S&W cartridge, your best bet would be the Glock 27 "Mini Glock". This would be the most economical choice if you are looking to save $$ on ammo. I have a G-27 and love it. It takes a little getting used to at first as it is small and recoil is a little "snappy". However, it is easy to shoot with a little practice and it is easy to conceal.

    As Glockster said the Glock might be a good choice. My carry gun is the hK2000sk but it is not cheap. Both are at the top of my list. If I were to add to my collection today it would be the Sig 250 in the sub compact size.

    I carry a Kahr CW9 9mm. Very compact and goes for around $400. Totally reliable and accurate.

    I really love my beretta px4 subcompact 9mm. I shot an IDPA match with it last weekend and was amazed at the 1.5'' 3 shot group i put on target with it at 25yds from a kneeling position while leaning around a baracade. needless to say its extremely accurate for a 3incher, its my favorite carry gun for warmer weather.

    Find a shooting range near you that rents out guns and has a good selection. Try all the sub compacts you can to see what you like. Then try the pawn shops in your area. You can usually knock as much as $100 off their asking price.

    When dealing with the pawn shops. If you find a gun you like. Go to gunbroker.com and see what the SAME GUN is going for online. Then take about 50% to 60% off that price. that is probalby what the pawnbroker paid for the weapon. Then realizing he wants to make a profit make an offer. Have cash with you to entice the deal.
