There are lots of good choices out there. I really like my Springfield EMP in .40 S&W.

I only have the one .40 pistol, so I'm no expert. The recoil is certainly "snappy", but I don't think it's excessive, considering the EMP has a short barrel (3 inches).

The EMP is quite a bit more than $600, unfortunately.

I may be confused, though. When you say you want a "nice sa concealed carry gun", do you mean "Semi Automatic" or "Single Action"? If you just mean that your're looking for a semiautomatic to replace your LCR, there are a TON of choices, at almost all price points.
