I know everybody has their favorites and I'm supposed to go shoot a bunch and see how they feel... but I'd like everyone's input anyway!
I'm a total newbie getting a handgun primarily for concealed carry. It may be used for home defense if needed, but we're getting a shotgun for that, so concealed carry would be the primary function. Money is always an issue but I'm smart enough to know that my life is worth a few extra hundred bucks, if necessary. :)
I am a 5'1 female and, although I don't like a lot of recoil (who does?), I'm not a total wimp either. I can take some kick, just not too much. I do have carpal tunnel and arthritis, so the gun needs to be on the lighter side of things. (I held one 2-1/2 pound .45 that just about snapped my tendons clean through.)
Some that caught my eye at the store were the S&W M&P Compact and the Kel-Tec PF9. I liked their weight and the grip.
Also, still trying to decide if a single-action or double-action would be better for my situation.
Would love to hear your comments and suggestions!!
