9mm subcompact choice

Recommended Posts

also note that I have seen the shield priced in the knoxville area for around $250.  Plus S&W rebate for military active, retired , or honorably discharged for $40.

Do you mean 2.0 and New?

Price is 1.0, rebate is either.

If the pricing from some of the sellers like Primary arms and PSA are any indication, these low prices may not be around for long. I've seen prices going up on Shields, parts kits, and rifles increasing this week.

As gregintenn mentioned in another post, if you want these current and recent pricing...you better go for it now. And after Mad Cow Pelosie and Chuckie yesterday, things just might get a bit tighter on us.

I bought a Sig P365. I have put about 80 rounds through it without any problems. I really like it. The other guns are all great guns and I don't think there was a "bad" gun mentioned. The Sig just had it all, great sights, small size and larger capacity. And it shoots very well. I don't know if it was worth the extra money it cost over the other guns but it is what I wanted.

Thanks to all that contributed to this discussion.

Those were my experiences with the P365 as well.  Oddly, I didn't like the larger P320 one bit, but the P365 is top of the line for pocket carry and deep concealment.

Good choice..   My dad taught me growing up, "you'll never be satisfied if you don't purchase the one you really want in the first place".    Kinda like the "cry once" saying.

My wife has the Ruger and I've shot it many times, it's a good gun! Doesn't like wimpy ammo, I've shot some lighter loads on it and it didn't eject well. Quality factory rounds or full-power loads with 124 gr. bullets all fired fine.

I am considering getting a new carry gun. I want a 9MM subcompact. The choices available are almost overwhelming, but what I am focused on is:

Smith&Wesson Shield Item Number: 11673 

Walther PPS M2

Beretta Nano

Ruger lc9s

I considered the Sig Sauer  P365 but I'm not sure the reliability is there yet on that gun.

Currently I carry a Smith&Wesson 442 .38 special snub nose revolver.  I like this gun for it's ease of carry but I would like a few more rounds.

I own a CZ 75 compact 9MM. I love the way that gun shoots, it is much easier to get on target and be accurate but it is just too heavy to carry on a daily basis.

I am slender, so concealment is somewhat difficult at times. That's part of the reason for the subcompact requirement.

So, what's the recommendation for a reliable, easy to conceal great shooting subcompact?

Any recommendations on stores local to the Nashville-Murfreesboro area?

Thank,

Terry

Have you tried the cz PCR it’s light weight Compact

      I wasn't planning on picking up a new gun "BUT" Walther just came out with the new Walther PPQ Q5 Match Steel Frame.  I sold my polymer PPQ and picked up the new steel frame.  It has been a long time since I really got excited about a new gun but I really like this gun.  It is a heavy gun at 2lbs 10oz with an empty magazine so it will be legal for SSP/ESP division in IDPA.  My main purpose for the gun is to shoot Carry Optics division and the weight limit is 45oz with an optic.  The optic I will use will be the C-more RTS2 6 MOA.  The gun does come with three mounting plates, not for the C-more.  Had to purchase one from C-more.  The grip is a little bit more aggressive than the polymer gun and I am very happy with that.  I hope to get out to the range soon and when I do I will do a range report.

      For 2019, Ruger has decided to cease production of the SR family of striker fired pistols.  

      Personally, I think they made a big mistake.  I guess they wanted to push the American but I think the SR would have done better if they released it in a "pro" model without the safety.
