Thread: Wanted: Your two cents'

  1. Thank you all for your replies! I know I have to live with my choice but it just seems the Px4 sub has quite a few great features for the size- single and double action, the decocker lever, and tac rail.

    Plus I have a 92fs which I have put a thousand or so rounds through at a range. From my understanding people say they handle similarly. Also I know.. 92fs- love it or hate it.

    Also have a 92FS... Love it... Kinda too large for concealed carry in the warm months... I prefer it for shooting tight groups at the range...
    You can give peace a chance alright..

    I'll seek cover in case it goes badly..

    I wanted to help you the best for I can. I was in the same spot you are in now about a year ago. You do have some awesome pistol on you list, first I want to let you know that I own a P x 4 Storm subcompact. It is extreamly accurate, but a little fat (wide) for my hand and you need the picky extension on the mag for it to fit you hand. It is also a bit jumpy due to it being so small. I seen one of the other replies recommended a compact 1911, that is what I ended up doing once I could afford it. I carry a Kimber Raptor Ultra II. Now if you want the biggest bang for your buck try a CZ 75 D PDR. New they are around $525, used they are a $425. I am a huge fan of CZ they are priced extreamly reasonably for an awesome accurate pistol. I just added a set of Crimson Trace laser grips to my 75throttle compact, I cannot say enough about good things about these pistols. Between my wife and I we own 7 C's.

  5. does the px4 subcompact storm have a rotating barrel like the full sized version of that gun?

    So the time has come for me to decide which firearm I am going to carry. I have it narrowed down to three guns. I would like your opinions on each as a viable carry gun.

    1. Px4 Storm subcompact (9mm- I am leaning towards this firearm.)
    2. Glock 26.
    3. Kahr PM9.

    If you had to choose one of these firearms to carry which would it be? and why? Also, perhaps you would choose a gun not of this list?

    I have had the opportunity to hold each and get an idea of their ergonomics, and I like the way the Px4 feels the best. However, I think it is safe to say that the Px4 is the largest of the three.

    Thanks for taking the time to read my post. I realize alot of this can come down to preference but I would still appreciate your opinion on the matter.

    On a side note when I applied for my CCW permit at the local sheriffs office one of the first basic questions the clerk asked me besides if I was 21 and such was "Are you in school". I assume she meant college because most 21 year olds' are not in high school. Why would it matter if I was in school. I understand that most (if not all) university's would not allow you to carry on campus but it still makes me wonder.

    Thanks again!

    Before you buy any gun you should try it out to see if its for you. Don't buy what your friend suggest or what your cousin has. Go to a good gun store and try out several types. The guns on your list are good. I have a Glock 27 and I love it. I also have a ruger LC9, ruger LCP and a Ruger 357. Like I said before, shoot a lot of guns before you buy. Guns are expensive and if you're going to spend your hard earned money it makes good sense to spend it on something you can use!!

    Yes, they are pretty much identical.

  8. My wife just picked a ruger sr40c if that helps. She has small hands and it really spoke to her in the grips department. She likes the recoil over the sr9c. Both guns are damn near identical with little exception. We have not explored the 3 on your list however.

    I'm sorry, but two cents is the only change I have left after this whole "hope and change" thing went into effect a few years ago...
    Anyone who says, "I support the 2nd amendment, BUT"... doesn't. Element of Surprise: a mythical element that many believe has the same affect upon criminals that Kryptonite has upon Superman.

  10. I don't like Glocks and not real fond of Beretta so that leaves the Kahr. I've handled them a few times and found them suitable for concealed carry(maybe a little blocky compared to others). I carry a Ruger KP95 or SP101(3 1/16")mostly because I live in an either/or state so peaking/printing is not a problem. Obviously, I prefer a larger gun than the subcompacts. I'm 60ish and retired so I don't have to "fit in" with a specific type of attire. I carried a Browning HiPower for years until I got tired of people who noticed it when open carried asking"if I knew my pistol was cocked".

    Well, without trying to persuade you to this gun and that gun, all those are great choices. I would go with the one you can afford, fits your hand, and functions well for you. Another thing to consider is, the method you plan to use to conceal. If you want to conceal in your pocket, IWB holster, OWB holster, or what have you, will make a difference.
