I love my XD9. It’s a great gun.I'm a big fan of Springfields. I had (before the tragic boating accident where I lost all of them) an XD9 Subcompact and an XDS 9 and 45. See if you can rent a few and shoot them at the range, or better yet, if you have friends with a few firearms see if they will take you and let you shoot them. The P365 ^^ is a good one, and my wife had a Glock 19 9mm (again, before the accident) and they all shoot great. It's usually a matter of personal preference.
This is Americas top selling gun. Just bought for my wife and I as a carry. Id suggest an HnK VP9. Mans gunSig P365. It's probably closer to $600 depending on where you buy it, but the reliability and concealability is worth the extra $100.
Finding ammo for anything will be the hard part unless you're already stocked up. Most places will sell you one box of 20-30 with a new purchase though.
I'd def go new if it's in the budget. Hard to know what somebody else has put their rig through. Some ppl don't even clean them. You don't want to open that bucket of worms. Treat this as a life-saving investment - it might be.Thanks for the info guys. Any qualms with buying new or used?
Have this exact set up. Fucking love shooting this thing. The ONLY downside is some people have a moral objection to it base on where it's manufactured. Which I understand, and I should probably care more, but I don't.I hate my Sig P365. The grip is too small for my hand.
Try a Canik TP9 Elite SC. A little bigger than the Sig, but a great pistol, and it will be in your price point. They were going for $399, but have moved up some.
Used glock for $500 worth it?I'd def go new if it's in the budget. Hard to know what somebody else has put their rig through. Some ppl don't even clean them. You don't want to open that bucket of worms. Treat this as a life-saving investment - it might be.
I'd think twice about the Kimber - their reputation for quality has gone down from what it once was - I have a Kimber micro and had nothing but problems with it, got a Sig P938 shortly after, and it's awesomeThink I am fixing to switch from my Ruger LCP to a Kimber Micro for my CC. Coworker has one and I really like it. Will still keep my LCP in the car because it is so small and can fit in your pocket and looks like a cell phone outline.

I have a Kimber .45 Ultra CDP2 and have never had a misfire. It is 12 years old however. Is there a problem with Kimber now?I'd think twice about the Kimber - their reputation for quality has gone down from what it once was - I have a Kimber micro and had nothing but problems with it, got a Sig P938 shortly after, and it's awesome
I typically carry a Glock 30s with talon grips I’ve had it years and have never had any reliability issues with it. It is a .45 though so it isn’t what your looking for. I’ve shot the Glock 43, it’s a nice little gun that’s easy to conceal that is chambered in 9mm that you might want to take a look at.
This can’t be overstated enough, find out what works for you and what you are most comfortable with and go from there.The Smith & Wesson M&P lineup might fit your budget, and those are also good guns.
Like others have stated - make sure it feels comfortable in your hand. Don't let salesman rush you. Narrow down your list in terms of budget and availability, then go with the one that fits the best.
