I started my own business, and due to where the shop is and the time of night we close, i'm a little worried about protection for the store. I'm looking for a weapon that will serve both as a personal carry weapon (concealed carry) and something for me to have personally at the store. I have a friend (ex-polivce officer and long-time gun expert and enthusiast) that works at the gun store, and I went and tried the feel of a few guns yesterday. The guns that best fit my hand were the Glock 23 and the Smith and Wesson SW99 (w/ finger extension on the magazine). Personally, i felt the Glock was the best, but the SW99 was a close 2nd. I also looked @ teh slim Kahrs, H&Ks, Colts and Sigs as well as a few revolvers, but none felt as balanced and natural as the Glock and S&W. We decided on the .40 as the best caliber for the type of use I'm looking for. Both will have the tridium sights because of probable use in low-light conditions. With that, the light that clips to the trigger guard was a reccomended additional puchase for when i have it in my home. More or less, i'm trying to gather opinions on those two guns. It looks like it's going to be hard to fire each before i purchase due to lack of ranges that will rent guns, and i've never fired a gun before. What will be most reliable, and be easiest to fire accurately? I will be taking the Concealed Carry class before i carry it, and will put many, many rounds through the gun before i trust it with my life and protection. But i'd like to make the most informed decision possible. on a side note, my business partner will be purchasing one when he turns 21 as well. He prefered the Kahr. Any comments on that manufacturer of gun?
