    Hello,

    Unfortunately I live in MA, but I am going to be purchasing my first handgun soon. I will carry it on me. I have shot a variety of handguns, and obviously to come to a good conclusion I will have to shoot each of these guns. Money really isnt an issue.. Here is what I am thinking about. I most likely will be buying USED (Glock and MA do not mix).

    Glock 21 - Im heavily leaning towards this.
    Glock 20 (never shot a 10mm, is this overkill? :rofl:)
    Springfield 1911
    Glock 19

    Maybe a springfield XD? I havent shot one.

    All fine choices. Pick what you like best after trying each one out as much as possible.

    And how do you plan on carrying in MA?

    I vote 19, the 20 would be cool, but 10mm is really expensive.

    10mm ammo is expensive and the 20 is quite large. It'd be a fine range toy down the road but for now get a 9mm. The g19 would be fine if you like how it feels and shoots
