    Hey guys!
    I am working on getting my CC License and in the process of finding a nice gun to bring along with me to almost wherever I go!

    I am not new to shooting handguns, rifles, etc. But new to owning one on my own! This will be a gun for both my wife and I(newly weds) so I was looking into the 9mm range...I may be wrong and she may want a bigger caliber lol who knows!

    Ok, I am very dead on trying out the Ruger SR9c or Glock 26 gen 4 atm. I have been watching hickok45 vids and just reading a lot about them.

    But....I do need a back up plan if it turns out to not be the gun for US..

    Which I am not sure if you guys have any knowledge on these but
    my back ups were the MP 9 shield, SA xdm sub compact 9 or 40
    and if the wife wants to try it out..i was leaning towards the Glock 30(.45 acp), 30s or 26.

    I am checking out the communities on both forums and glocktalk seems to have major traffic which is a awesome thing for a forum!

    Thanks for any help or info at all guys/gals!

    Have a awesome day!
