I think I am going for my CCW permit here in CA and am looking for a new handgun to carry. I am getting word from a Sageant tomorrow if I will pretty much get one for sure. Plus I live in Kern County which is definately shall issue I have a P226 now but no way do I plan on carrying that. I do plan on using the CCW as a vehicle gun but may venture in actually carrying so... -I want to look into something small maybe even for pocket carry, I don't really know. -I want at least 9mm for semi-auto or .38spl for revolver -Not sure if I prefer an autoloader of a revolver I plan on buying a good holster if I will be carrying. Whatever I purchase I plan on shooting at the range a lot as I have a membership and can buy dies for the reloading setup for whatever caliber. I don't like shooting Glocks as I always seem to get slidebite. I do plan on renting a few but can only test so many. What would be a great gun to suit my needs? I would get the P7M8 if I really thought it was much better than the others but do not really plan on buying it. Others I have been thinking are 3" 1911, S&W airlite revolver, P99c, and Kahr.
