i have whittled down my choice for my first cc pistol to three choices, and i am going to make it a early christmas present to myself in a couple weeks so now i need other peoples help to decide what they like the best. ive shot all three, love them all but still cant decide. heres what you got to keep in mind-- im 6 foot, 180 lbs so a thin guy. i dress casual for everyday life but do wear slacks, suits for work. most of my clothes currently are not baggy, especially not enough to carry on my hip. i have 2 1911s so very familiar with .45 and grip safety. i will be in and out of my car alot, i drive alot for work, usually dont walk around or stand up for more than an hr at a time. i know holster will come into play in that one but please dont suggest a fs 1911 i cant carry it (tried and people notice). also i am left handed. so now that you know that, my choices are-- 1. springfield xds .45 I know this is a striker fire and i dont like that aspect of it ( mostly cause i am not familiar with it), but its single stack, grip safety and only .9 inches wide. perfect for ankle carry, or small of the back, or 4-5 oclock 2. FNH fnx40. i love the rear hammer, very easy to shoot, handle and get to all the controls easily. a little on the fat side at 1.77 inches at the grips but feels great in my hands. 3. beretta px4 storm .40. i LOVE the feel of this gun but it is a little hard to ghet to the hammer and safety, i hope its just a "more practice thing". i probably will end up buying all of these guns eventually but i am looking for number 1 right now, would love to hear input of what your favorite is. there are positives and megatives about every gun and if i had to choose one, it would be the xds, but i really love hammer fired pistols cause it is what i am used to. so any experiences/problems/input of carrying these daily? thanks!!
