Hi all, I have owned rifles for many years, but with a recent move out to the country I want a pistol closeby here at the house, and perhaps with me on trips. Part 1 - Which ammo? I am leaning toward 9mm, but many folks have good things to say about .40. My main reason for choosing 9mm has to do with availability and cost. I understand there is a little less stopping power, but I dont know if that difference warrants a higher caliber. Part 2 - The pistol. Originally I wanted to go with the simplicity of a revolver, but given the small capacity, a semi-auto appears to be a better fit. As I will be acquiring a CCW, size is a factor. So, now which one? Here are the guns I am considering in order. Please let me know what you like / dislike about them, and others I may want to consider. [*]Springfield XD 9mm, 4 Inch[*]Kel-Tec P11 [*]Glock 17 9mm 10 Rnd Night Sights One other consideration would be the Tarus Judge; mostly for the ability to use .410 shotshells as well as .45 ammo. Would be nice to bring a grouse gun on my next deer hunt without packing a separate rifle. Thanks in advance for all of your help!
