So basically, why are people such snobs when it comes to their CC gun? Or should I become said snob?
It really depends on the person. It isn't necessarily "snobbish" though. There are a lot criteria for a CC gun: light weight, thinness, round capacity, holster type, etc. Some guys are alright with carrying a full sized 1911 and some aren't. I don't carry a 1911 because they weigh a ton. They make some lighter ones with lighter frames but why do that when I have a tiny Kahr CM9 and a Ruger SR9c that both do the job?
Also, people may be snobs about what they carry because they trust their lives with them. At least that's my reasoning. It's a strong dependence on your carry piece.
Havent read the entire thread yet but I know RRI and Spartan to be decent for cheap.
The Spartan is a lot better than a Rock Island. The only part of the Spartan that is not American made is the frame. It's MIMed somewhere else. Still, the parts are fitted in America at STI in Texas. They do a hell of a job.
