Getting pass the "But" factor

683 19
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?

The main trick is to listen to your gut feeling when you first pick one up. How does it feel? How does it point? Can you manipulate the controls without too much adjustment?

The next is to assure yourself that it's reliable by way of actually shooting it. Can you go 100 rounds accurately, without a failure to feed or fire? Is a holster available? (A hint on the holster: look at the good stuff, close your eyes and spend the big money. It's worth it. Really.)

The last step, after you buy one is the hardest: Get off the internet and searching for confirmation of your purchase. You'll find people that don't agree with your pick in ample abundance. It's typical. People that aren't happy, bich about it. And they do it long and loud. Don't listen to them. For you're situation they're wrong, plain and simple.

For example, I've owned three Glock 19's. Over the years, I allowed myself to get talked into buying a gun that simply doesn't work for me. I finally purchased a CZ P-07 because it just felt right. It rides in a Kramer scabbard holster, and I carry it comfortably and confidently. One big reason for that (other than the fact that it's just a great piece) is that I simply don't care if anyone agrees with me or not. It works for me, and I'm good with that. No more searching.
