I`m in the market for a handgun... I went down to the local shop to start my DD on what will work for me. I have a lot of family in law enforcement that swear by the Glocks & Sigs... I didn`t like the feel or comfort that I`d felt on those at all... So I grabbed a Heckler & Koch VP9 & fired beautifully & just felt like an extension of my arm. Is this what i`m looking for or are the better known brands more dependable with a better make?

I`d like to hear what you guys have & experiences with your sidearm of choice.

Also, any recommendations on a smaller concealed piece....

I would say that if the gun feels comfortable to you, go for it.

H&K have a great reputation.

As for a smaller carry gun, stick with 9mm so you don’t have to purchase different ammunition.

Lots of great choices.

Glock 19 comes to mind.

I believe H&K have some good products in single stack smaller handguns.

Might even consider going out of the box and looking at a 9mm wheel gun.

So H & K does have a solid reputation... good to know! I`d never even heard of the manufacturer before so that is valuable... anything else I should be looking for in a sidearm?

I’ve had a Sig 226 for a looonnng time and it’s a slam-dunk, top notch weapon.

The wife bought an H&K VP9 and it’s a great shoot, but doesn’t have the feel, for me, that the Sig does.

H&K is a good brand

Glocks are a love/hate relationship

I’d look at CZ and Springfield Armory as well. (I have a SA XD)

For an extremely easy concealed carry gun consider the Ruger LC9.

Geez Louise on that boardroom...

CZ intrigues me.. heard a lot of good things about the Czech pieces...

PR, does wifey or yourself have any dislikes or cons on your VP9, other than what was stated?

Are you looking for a CCW handgun?

I really like the CZ-75. It will be a lot different than the poly frame Glocks

H&K are nice. I'm not into Glocks, i just dont like how they feel and fire. S&W make some nice handguns as well and they're not going to break the bank. Sig Saur and Kimber make really nice sidearms, but they cost a little more. As stated above, get what feels right to you.

Not really JU.. CZ Czech are nice side arms though.

I handled the Sig 226 today, & couldn`t believe the weight of that thing... I think the light weight Polymer framed pieces is where im leaning....
I went in to purchase that H & K VP90 but saw the simplicity of the light weight Glock with ergonomic grip & reconsidered... going to fire a few this weekend before I commit.... Thanks for the feedback.

She LOVES it.

For me I think it’s just a lack of familiarity and I just love my Sig. The H&K is a really nice weapon.

Changing gears here... leaning towards a bacteria riddled poop knife with an e-coli contaminated sheath for a close range weapon & sidearm of infection.

Can’t go wrong with the H&K model P2.

High bacteria count in a lightweight package.

Just jam all your 9mm into your ass before filling your magazine and you’ll get the same effect.

Brilliant! Soaked in the inmate concoction of urine & fecal matter stew... just like they do on the inside with their homemade home made soaked blow darts!

The Sig 226 Legion is about the most perfect gun out there IMO. A Stainless Elite 226 is favorite too. I'm not big on Glock 19, I have to get mods my knuckle doesn't feel right. A Beretta 92FS is also a great choice. My Brigadier is phenomenal and looks great in inox finish. Also, the Sig 1911 9mm is one of my favorites.
