That does it...

some of the threads I've been reading here have made up my mind for me. I was planning to start shopping around for my carry gun and eventually buy it in April/May when I got my permit. I wanted that feeling of walking into the shop, slapping my money down, and walking out with the gun. But with the way prices and availability seem to be getting, I guess I'll have to forego that wonderful feeling.

This Tuesday I'm getting out of work at 6PM and going to my range where I'll rent a few guns and try them out. Once my decision is made, I'll be heading to a gun show this coming weekend. If I find a decent price I'm buying it then. I'll wait the 5 days again, but I'll be da**ed if I'm going to sit by and watch the prices go up another $100 in the next 8 weeks.

I'll be firing the G26, G19, XD-9, and the M&P 9. One of those will do the trick, I think.

My personal choice would be the G19. The XDs just feel goofy in my hand (yeah, one in every crowd, right?), but they are excellent weapons.

The guns you mention are extremely similar in function. It's going to come down to how each feels in your hand, which points more naturally for you, which one you feel you shoot better, and price.

You'll be well served and satisfied, I'm sure, with anything on that short list.
That is actually the best reason to pick one over the other: The way the gun fits you. If you get a choice pick, the gun you can handle and shoot the best.
Totally agree, Al. All else being equal, that's what makes my decision on a new firearm.

That's why I own what I own: Glocks, HiPowers, J-Frames, and now another 1911.:thumsup
Absolutely. My EDC is a G23 (has been for 18 years). The G23 is the .40 version of the G19.
Nkm, I'll be hitting you up for holster advice when my permit arrives in April (hopefully).

Why wait? Between now and then, you can have a carry rig in place, broken in and become proficient in it's use and capabilities.

Then find another one that works because the first one didn't! :D
