I like my SR9c as well, it shoots great and reliable. Very accurate, for the type of clothing I wear for work though it is a little large as a conceal carry gun.

I am looking at the LC9 right now, a friend of mine talked me out of the LCP for now... but I still may go for it as a carry while working gun because it is so easy to conceal, and it is better then the nothing that I carry now.

I don't think you will find the lc9 to be much more concealable than the sr9c. If you want a pocket gun, get a real pocket gun, and get the Lcp, or a jframe revo.

I carry a Public defender when I can get away with something bigger, the rest of the time it's a Ruger LCP as well. There's a lot of .380 haters out there, but it's so damn easy to carry and loaded with Hornady HP's it's enough for me.

I also keep a S/A XD .40 in the vehicle, but it's too thick for me to carry comfortably.
About what? $1,500 for the kimber though?

X2... I believe it is a 8.5 lb pull.

Op, your best bet will be something from S&W, Ruger, kel-tec, certain Sigs, certain Berettas, Colt, etc.

I'd personally go with a S&W M&P 9c.
I know its not........i bought my HK, buddy bought a M&P .40, he had to send his back cause the mag was popping out while firing and causing it to jam.

If it had crack head exterminator, I would think this to be the one.

Good thing your HK hasn't had to go back, since HKs customer service is known around the globe for being terrible.

I don't have a Kimber.
I have a Kel Tec PF9. I have around $350 into that with their belt clip and an extra clip.
The other I keep in the vehicle is a Springfield Armory XD 40

Since you're in Saranac, you could go to Silver Bullet in GR. They have an indoor shooting range with a number of pistols you can use. I also see on their website they advertise a "try it before you buy it" thing, but I don't know anything about it.

Had to have a machine shop make a couple G36 front ghost ring sights because H&K said parts may be up to a year out. Put the sights on and sold them.
