Please, I beg of you... if you are a guy who hates guns, just leave the thread. Any argument you may have against gun ownership, no matter how cleverly crafted or irrefutable you believe it to be, really is not what this thread is for. So... I've been looking around, asking friends, and they all come down to basically these 4 handguns: 1. Glock 19 2. Smith & Wesson M&P 9mm 3. Sig Sauer P229 4. Walther CCP I really don't care to carry anything under 9mm and my penis is sufficiently average enough that I don't necessarily need a .45, so I'm looking to stay in the 9mm or .40 area. Obviously, I plan on test firing at the range before I buy but I want to kind of narrow it down a little. Right now, I think the M&P is in the lead. I generally like Sigs but - GODDAMN - they sure are proud of their product. I like the way the Glock feels but get a little sketched out about the whole "no safety" thing, as there are kids in the house. The Walther... well, I don't know anything about it except that one friend says "buy it, you'll thank me later" and another says, "pffffft. Don't waste your money. What say you?
