Support BladeForums! Paid memberships don't see ads! Im taking a Safety Shooting course tomorrow morning and I will soon have my CCL. Im looking at getting my first Concealed Carry handgun and am pretty ignorant to whats out there. Right now a Colt Defender in 9mm is really catching my eye. I already own a Beretta M9A1 and love that gun dearly, but its not up to par on the 'concealable' point. Im not opposed to a revolver, but ive never shot one. The one thing I will say, is that I do not want a polymer/plastic handgun. Im sure you all will burn me for saying that, but my dad has a Glock 17 and I cant stand it! What small sized pistols do you carry? What do you like about them? If you could purchase any compact handgun what would it be? Thanks for the input. I look forward to the feedback.
