Hey everyone, glad to join. Newbie here from New Orleans.
Hunter here with rifles and shotguns and a couple pistols, but getting my CCW in a couple weeks and debating on the Ruger LC9, Ruger LCR or the S&W 637. I like the idea of a 38 special revolver, but I do like a 9mm, any ideas or experience with any of these guns?

quite the name.. on the guns.. yep.. you're going to find fans of all of them here.. i carry an airweight smith most of the time.. cheap to shoot and light... only problem is bulk.. all the LC Rugers are great.. might want to think about a used Star in 9.. Spanish copy of the 1911 cdr..

glad to have you on board, jump in on any subject.. zydeco music is on the second floor..

Just as Greg said

First welcome to the site. Second, you will a lot who like each gun and dislike another. A lot of personal preference there. I am also looking for a carry pistol and having a tough time deciding.

Bonjour!

Welcome, Ami! Oh, and look into the Springfield XDm if you want a 9mm you can carry concealed. I just bought one and love it!

Still looking for CCW

Thanks everyone. Matty, I did look at the Springfield, pretty sweet gun.
This is like a sickness, I want too many of these pistols I am looking at.

Me too!

There's no cure, so just enjoy it. The great thing about the XDm is that you can still conceal it with the 19 round mag in, so you can have 20 rounds counting the one in chamber and have the gun perfectly concealed.
