Choose only 1, it's great to have the 3 of them but funds doesn't permit it. I'm in a stage of choosing but beginning to be very picky, because here are my plans for my next FA acquisition. This is more like a "If you were in my shoes thing" 1. Superb Home Defense 2. Excellent Reliability (For carry + concealability) 3. Moderate Shooting competition IDPA or IPSC if time permits/if FA qualifies. 4. Slightly Resembling Glock 23 40cal. So that my learning curve won't be too steep or is this impossible to compare? I'm considering (not in order & all in 40cal.) HK P2000SK 40cal. HK USP Compact 40cal. Sig Sauer P229 40cal. 1911 is at the backburner due to time constraints of getting it enhanced or worked on. Thank you very much for sharing your insight.
