I keep a G26 at the family place in another state (it seems to take a bit of stress away not having to check a gun or have to check a bag at all.) With some more time using it and some time with a bunch of others using them without issues, I may be convinced that a Shield is a suitable substitute.

In FL, I would go with a G26. I went to a G29 because of the local bear population.

If I had to just choose one of my poly pistols it would be the Gen 3 G26.

G19 is pretty hard to beat

It's hard to tell if concealed carry is part of the equation......that would make a big difference.

A single stack is best for ccw.

Probably a Glock 9mm.
If only RRA would get their 1911's back to market and make a commander versions...

08-25-2012, 19:52
M&P compact 9mm

08-25-2012, 19:53
G27 with the 9mm and .357 Sig barrels and 9mm mags. A great return on your money.

08-25-2012, 20:13
HK for me :)

08-25-2012, 20:14
Hk p30.

08-25-2012, 20:15
If I had to choose one compact it would be the 19. Since you did not say sub-compact I did not choose the G26. However if by compact you meant compact and sub-compact, I'd take the 26 over the 19.

kimber solo-carry 9mm

08-25-2012, 20:28
Walther PPQ or P99 AS. My PPQ forced my Glock 19 into retirement.

G23 with conversion barrels for 9mm and .357SiG.

G23 with conversion barrels for 9mm and .357SiG.

I could do without the .357 Sig barrel. Is substitute an AA .22 LR conversion kit.

For one hand gun to do everything from concealed carry, to plinking, home defense, and competition gun it could do it all.

wait a minute. I thought the OP said all around compact pistol. I believe that includes shooting matches. why are we suggesting pocket pistols here.

Have only one real CCH I use consistently since 2004, a Glock 36. Bought it used, and have just had to replace the faded Trijicon night sights:wavey:
Before that, a Colt 1991 Commander. Got tired of lugging that thing around. The G36 is a WHOLE lot more comfy and has only one less bullet!

08-26-2012, 06:57
I would go with either a Glock 19 or a HK P30. Hold each one and see which one feels better in the hand and then see if there is somewhere you can shoot both (or know someone who owns one or the other).

The Glock 19 and P30 are easy to conceal (I live in Florida and carry a G17 or G22 everyday) and they are still big enough to have fun at the range and even shoot in matches.

I have shot Glock 19s in IDPA matches before and have won.

Just my two cents,

08-26-2012, 07:37
Glock 19 all day every day. If G.A.P. ammo wasn't so expensive, and hard to find... I may go with that. My Glock 37 is a sick shooter.

Walther PPQ or G-19.

08-26-2012, 08:30
I don't have Glocks anymore but if I had to choose and own one single handguns to do everything, it would be a G26. This way any 9mm Glock mag could fit which would be the G26 mags + GAP plates for carry, G19/G17 mags with spacers for HD and for an imaginary scenario, G18 mags for SHTF. :whistling:

08-26-2012, 08:35
G19, no doubt. i prefer a 45, but if i only could have one handgun it would be a 9mm, because of ammo price and availability.:wavey:

08-26-2012, 08:53
I think one of the best compacts ever is the glock 19. The price and quality are two of the best features.

I don't own Glocks anymore. But if I was limited to just one compact, polymer frame, stryker fired semi-auto, it would be a Glock 23.

My gut reaction is go go with the familiar G19, but since this would hypothetically be the only handgun I'd have I'd choose the extra power of the .40 S&W cartridge.

08-26-2012, 21:53
HK for me :)

He did say money was no problem.

In 9mm I own Glock 19, H&K USPc, P7, SIGs, BHP, S&Ws, Rugers, Beretta and CZ. I won't count military 9mm's

I have three Kahrs but the 9mm that I carry the most and is becoming my EDC is the Kahr P9.

It is the Goldilocks of the 9mm. It not too big, it not too small and it is not too wide. It just right for me at 16 oz with eight +P+ 124 grain bullets.

HK, HK, and HK again.

P30, P30L, HK45.

I just wish HK would offer a factory P30S in 357SIG.

08-26-2012, 22:25
M&P compact 9mm

This. In addition to the M&P 9mm compact I also have a Glock 26 and a Springfield XDm 9mm and of those three I shoot the S&W the best (but not by much).

08-27-2012, 03:34

G19 RTF2 specifically.

08-27-2012, 04:18
HK, HK, and HK again.

Yup. Pretty much sums it up.

08-27-2012, 05:15
Why HK ?

08-27-2012, 14:28
HK for me :)

Me too! I no longer have any Glocks but the G19 is a great all around gun. I now own HK's and P2000, P30 or HK45c are about as good as it gets!!

08-27-2012, 14:36

Everyone that shoots them loves them.

Made by a world class designer, Wilhelm Bubits who was a Glock weapons designer and designed the Steyr pistols which are well liked and regarded as better than Glock by many.

And they can be had cheap. $349 from Centerfire systems.


08-27-2012, 14:40
Why HK ?

Better design, grips fit my hand a LOT better than a Glock. Accurate, reliable as hell, and available in a lot more configurations (SA/DA with and without safety, two DAO options, etc).

Went to the gun show handled a few HK. in 45 & 40 .They didn' t feel right in my hand .I guess my MP 40C .will be the one for me. Thank's all

G23 with conversion barrels for 9mm and .357SiG.

This. No question the most versatile of the Glocks (imho).
