I absolutely LOVE my FNH FNS 9mm! I forgot I had some left over 9mm Black Talon rounds so I was able to fill my magazines up. Honestly if I go a bigger caliber it will be .45 caliber, no reason for me to get .40 when 9mm ballistic testing match .40 caliber. Nothing against .40 caliber by any means, I am just trying not to build up a huge collection of firearms that I won't touch or barely shoot.

Have future plans that require strict money management. So this requires me only to buy the ones I really want and not just to blow money to have them. Honestly don't need to have 15 to 20 different firearms in my collection as that is later on when money is pushed. If I don't have at least one year of savings put away to use to pay all bills monthly without struggling if lose job, then I'm not doing it right. Also I am stupid strict with how much I want in the checking account at all times, which is a HIGH number.

Glock or?

I have a Glock 30 for CC and a Springfield XD45, I like them both, but I would never carry anything that doesn't start with a 4. I'm an old school Army guy, carried an M1911 for years. Been a long time since I've been on here, took a break because of all the arguing and back-biting, hope it's changed. Our Kansas Governor Brownback has done great things for 2A rights, we're fighting to keep him.

If I were going with a .45, I would look at the SIG P220 or their newer P227. I would also consider the HK 45C. Just my opinion of course.
