    Looking for .40 subcompact for the car and/or cc from time to time.

    Already own a glock 22 and don't really feel like buying a 9mm stash to go with my .40.

    Didn't love the Keltec, or Sig.

    Possibly a cz rami, never held one.

    suggestions?

    id go with glock 27, then you can use your glock 22 mags with your 27 for ultra tactical situations

    :hs:WMD won't recommend anything over a Glock. Although I have an XD9 Subcompact and I love it...:mamoru:

    However, if you do go w/ the G27, interchangeable mags are a definite plus.

    G27.
    Then you can look for a 23 and 35 to make the whole family.

    I also have an XD9sc and love it, but I wouldn't hesitate to buy a Glock - especially in your case you have the G22 already, it's a no brainer IMO.

    I carry an XD40SC daily. I chose it over the glock.

    Eh. You could buy a tried-and-true compliment to your G22, or you could get a little Croatian gadget-heavy rust problem waiting to happen. At least that's the way I see it. The XD might not be terrible, but people seem to be making a mistake in thinking it's got the same traits as the Glock particularly when it comes to ruggedness.

    I'm the same...the only reason I ended up getting an XD9SC over the Glock 19 I wanted was because I just so happened to find a really good deal locally on the XD.
     
  10. I'd go with the 27. As has been said, you can use the mage you already have in the gun if you want. The XD is a fine gun, but it doesn't really do anything better than the Glock.

    I'll stray from the pack and suggest either a Walther PPS or possible a H&K P2000SK

    Same reason here.

    I asked to see both at the same time and the guy said not to let them touch because they may start a fight.

    I have had 2 previous XDs, one sub compact and one Tactical model. Ditched them both and went for Glock. I consistently shoot better with the Glock than I did with either of my XDs. It's all personal preference.

    Holy fuck ... I've been thinking about trimming my calibers down so I don't have to buy 9mm, .40, and .45 in quantity, but now you guys are making me want to keep my G23 and G27 until the end of time!

    . or better yet sell the 23 and buy a 20 and 29 :naughtyd:

    I hear you about the calibers. I'd like to ditch my only .40 gun but it was the first pistol I bought when I turned 21 at 8am the day of my 21st. Skipped going out the night before just so I could get up bright and early to get to the gun store. I primarily just buy 9, 10, and .45. Kinda want to eliminate .45 but I have a feeling the 1911 bug is going to hit me real soon.

    It's pretty obvious to me that if your firearm is something you consider very specifically to be a tool rather than a toy - to be used for fighting, in the instance that you must fight, rather than for fun - then the Glock is the uncontested ideal piece here. This is evident in its unrivaled ruggedness and durability, as well as its ease of use (no unnecessary gadgetry), vast aftermarket support, simple repair procedure... the list is long. And the great thing is, it's empirically demonstrable.

    If you're buying a toy, get whatever you want. Doesn't matter if your plinker jams up from time to time or won't shoot properly if it's picked up out of submersion in water or whatever. If that's the case, just get whatever you think looks or feels or sounds neat. Or tastes neat if that's your thing.

    Finally, the feel-good factor isn't a sensible criterion when selecting the weapon to which you intend to entrust your life. God dammit I hate people who buy their carry or home defense weapon based on what feels best in their hand at the store off the shelf unloaded under no stress at leisure...
