Yes, I am a Glock homer, but I've stated several times that there are other good guns out there. I just don't think the XD is anywhere near being the best 500-700 gun on the market...

I second the S&W M&P. You'll have plenty of money leftover to make a nice range trip.

ETA: Not the Shield, but the "full size."

So you want stopping power for something you could carry or use in home defense, less than 1k?

Glock 19. You know I wouldn't steer you wrong.

Hell, meet me at Precision one evening and I'll let you try a plethora of options.

Cant lose with any of those.


Can't argue with this, Helo knows his guns. I am fortunate enough to own a P30 .40 cal, P30L 9, and the HK 45. Best guns I own. Don't get me wrong i love glocks and I own/ owned the first gen glock 21 all way through 4th gen .40 cal. full size - babies. Along with Kahr all the way down to Bersa .380 for the wife. You will spned all of that 1K on one but they are well worth it IMO.

I'm not a glock fan because I'm just not a semi-auto fan, but I can't really argue against them.

You already have a .357 magnum which is almost universally accepted to be the best man stopping handgun caliber on earth. Why not get a compact .357 magnum and start conceal carrying?

Good advice. Or if you want, consider a semi-auto 9mm instead of compact 357 mag for cc.

Also good advice. You could also substitue a 12 gauge shotgun for home defense, but the youth model would be a better choice if a smaller framed SO or teens may need to handle it.

The Glock 19 is always a good choice for a self defense gun. I'd suggest one thing to consider, though: will you be pleased cc a double stack mag handgun or will you rather have a single stack mag handgun. Guns like the M19 (and most service handguns) have double stack mags to increase mag capacity. OTOH, this makes the grip of the gun much thicker. Some find it more of a problem to cc a double stack mag handgun. There are now a bunch of single stack mag handguns that are designed for the cc crowd. Not only should you handle (and preferably shoot) the possible new gun before purchsing it, but you should also try to determine beforehand what a double stack gun feels like w/ cc and whether that suits you.

If you're interested in a single stack handgun, there are a bunch of them, including (I'll just list the 9mm's, but some are in 40 as well):

Kahr CM9
Kahr PM9 (a more expensive version of the CM9)
Kahr CW9 (a no frills, slightly bigger version of the CM9)
Kahr MK9
Kel-Tec PF9
Diamondback DB9
Bersa BP9cc
Kimber Solo
Beretta Nano
Sig 938/290
Walther PPS
SCCY Industries CPX

ETA: Taurus 709 Slim is another single stack 9mm.

This is my main beef with Glock. Even though it's a double stack magazine, the grip doesn't need to be so damn fat and awkward. If other gun companies can make comfortable grips with the same capacity (XD, M&P, SR) why can't they do it? The grip angle is also extremely exaggerated.

Alright, I'll stop my Glock bashing. They work.
