I would be torn between the S&W M&P40C and the Sig P-229. They have different types of triggers, but I like them both.

I would agree with the 229 too, but it's not the easiest gun in the world to CC. So I would go with the M&Pc. Caliber, doesn't matter, whichever you shoot better.

The Sig 239, since it is now allowed.

if I were allowed to keep my 9mm silencer, then the SIG in 9mm.
otherwise, .357SIG first, then .40 second.

Massachusetts is not a communist state. Communism is an economic theory, not a form of government.

It is a liberal autocracy.

Your list. The M&P 9C. But I don't know why you wouldn't go with a Glock 19 that is almost the same size and hrs more rounds. Also the 19 has a much better trigger!

Just those, no other choices. What would you go with?

Since those choices suck, can I just choose my baseball bat?
Seriously, I'm not a fan of any of the given choices. But, if you held a gun to my head, I'll just have to go with the P229, the least bad choice.

+1 on the Sig 229. Preferably one with the E2 grips. I love mine, feels like it was molded for my hand.

I'd go with the M&P or Sig but I'd prefer them chambered in 45.

Although I am a known Glock fan, I'll have to go with the SIG229, in .357SIG.

You can't say enough about this gun.
