Getting pass the "But" factor

Have you found the PERFECT conceal carry firearm for you? One that doesn't have the "But" factored in? I will use myself as an prime example. I would buy then sell, sell then buy. All while losing thousands trying to find the perfect gun. From $1300 Legions to $300 Caniks I've owned them all. Trust me. Lol. It was always "this gun feels great BUT it's to heavy. This gun is comfortable to carry BUT I don't like the trigger. I like the trigger BUT I don't like the grip." There's always a BUT. Some pistols I kept because it worked flawlessly. But finding the perfect EDC was a pain. Finally the M&P 2.0 compact came along and oh wow. IMO there isn't a single thing to BUT about this pistol. Right out of the box, the changeable backstraps, the perfect grip stipulations, the new and improved trigger system, good sights, excellent weight distribution, small/light enough to carry comfortably yet big enough to fight with. I've ran this pistol so hot I couldn't place my thumb on the takedown lever in the thumbs forward position; yet nothing melted and it continued to functioned flawlessly. I now have 2 of them and finally found my PERFECT EDC. No BUT's. Lol. Have you?

I settled on "by far good enough" on a couple of guns, one that I can pocket carry when I can't really carry IWB. These things get sweated on, they get holster wear, and they're just generally abused in comparison to a safe queen. Obviously, they have to be reliable, and I need to be able to shoot them well enough. I use the Ruger SR9c that I carry for IDPA, and I don't feel like the gun is really holding me back. It fits me well, and so I can recommend it to anyone who is my clone. Everyone else will need to go out and find something that works for them. OP, it sounds like you found what works for you, congrats!
