But its finally hit me that I turn 21 in a little over a month and Im starting to get excited that Ill finally be able to get my CPL permit and buy handguns without going through the hassle of a private party So now Im trying to decide what gun Im going to carry, Ive owned a variety of guns so I now what I shoot well with but I still cant decide. 1911 + They fit my hand the best, they shoot the most accurate for me. + Slim profile, a ton of holster options. - High maintenance, not 100% reliable from my experience - 7/8 round capacity Sig P229 Elite (.40) + Sig reliability, owned many sigs and never had a malfunction + Low maintenance, just lube it up and its good to go. + 12 round cap + SRT trigger is awesome - Somewhat heavy and wider profile Glock 23 + Glock reliability + Ton of holster/aftermarket support + 13 round cap + light weight - Shot the worst for me out of all the guns listed. - Did not fit my hand all too well. HK45c + HK reliability, never had a malfunction with them. + Versatility. I can carry DA/SA, Cocked and Locked, DA/SA and Locked + HK45 fits my hand great, interchangeable backstraps. + light weight - 8 round cap - not too many holster options at the moment - HK customer support is meh unless you are LEO/Military Right now Im learning towards the Sig and HK, being that its a carry gun Im not too confident carrying a 1911, and the Glock does not shoot too well for me. Im really just excited that Im almost 21, can't wait Also, question for the WA residents, how long is the wait time for your CPL to come?
