Lots of great guns to choose from. I personally like the Beretta PX4, Type "F" full size. I like the decocker safety. I can drop it, knock it and the safety stays on. If for some reason I did manage to knock it off safety (very hard to do in a thumb over holster), I'd still have to work a DA trigger on the first round. I bump about to much to have a simple safety w/ a single action trigger pull to chance it. I also like the less perceived recoil of the twist barrel for follow up shots. I also use the Hogue HandAll. The perceived recoil felt less than my SR9 by comparison. The only negative I have is for the twist to occur, you have more tracks in the slide than a standard semi-pistol. Not a big deal, but it does add a few more minutes to cleaning and greasing if you don't like that sort of thing. I do use grease and not oil for the metal/metal contacts. That also eliminates gun oil from draining out onto your clothing if you get too carried away.

S&W MP40c

I just paid for one, don't have it yet. I went through the thought process for a while before I finally purchased it. I cannot wait to get it.

40 cal for cc

Breakingcontact, I have carried a Colt Detective Special, a Smith and Wesson Highway patrolman, a S&W model 57(4 inch barrel) and my latest a Ruger SR9c. I want .40 S&W cal and night sights. Since I am left handed, I need something that is friendly for me. Thanks. I have carried for about 40 years!

Smith & Wesson M&P40c

M&P 40 Compact. I've had mine 6 years and love it. Easy to shoot, easy to carry and very accurate. I'm a lefty and easily moved the mag release to the "lefty side".

l've heard police work is dangerous. Yes, that's why l carry a big gun. Couldn't it go off accidentally? l used to have that problem. What did you do about it?
