    If you want a 9mm go with the new agent. The defender is my main carry gun and has a stainless slide with an aluminum alloy frame. It's light carries well and is a solid shooter. It can be 7 or 8+1 depending on your mags. Personally I like 45 buying a 9mm just because you don't have one is a bad idea IMO .

    That said, I agree that it doesn't make a lot of sense to buy 9mm just because you don't have one. But different strokes for different folks.

    Well I don't mean to have said it in that matter that I want a 9 because I don't have one but I already have a .45 and don't shoot much because of ammo price. True that I always wanted a 9mm but haven't found one that I like yet (for a carry weapon). I shoot alot at the range And would be much happier and fortunate buying 9mm vs .45 any day of the week.

    I really like my defender, the stainless holds up to daily carry well. As for ammo prices a single stage press will pay for itself before long!

    I agree with you about prices. Cheaper ammo means more practice. I went a bit further. My EDC is a Defender. I have a Colt compact that I put a .22 adapter on. I get the same feel (minus recoil) practicing with cheaper ammo.

    The point I tried to make in my earlier post is that the Defender is available in 9mm. Your choice is narrowed to which model you prefer.

    Get a 9mm for range use, and keep the .45 for carry. Heck get 'em both...

    i would love the Springfield EMP but the ambidexterous safety on both sides doesnt call my attention, looking at a FN 5.7 or a pocket 9mm cant decide
