    Cool Back again, need some advise.

    Hey forum! It's been a while.

    Due to some family emergencies, i wasn't able to purchase the Taurus pistols i had my eye on earlier last year (OSS DS 45, a 24/7 G2 in 45, and a 709)

    Now that I've got things back in order and have had some time to more carefully consider my options for pistols, I think I'd like to invest in two firearms as CCW's. One that holds 10-15 rounds of 9mm (a 'compact', bigger than a pocket-gun, but not a full-sized duty pistol) and then something smaller like a taurus-709, Ruger-LC9, KelTec-PF9, ect. for deep concealment/comfort.

    After taking a few "pocket 9mm's" for a test drive at the range, I've decided that the 709 in stainless will fill the role of my small-carry. It's just too smooth, too comfortable and too good looking to say no to.

    But as a main-carry or "big brother" to my 709, I'm stuck between three options.

    Sig P250 Sub-Compact, 12 rounds, 6.7" long, 1.1" wide, 4.7" tall, $420-$480
    Smith & Wesson M&P9C, 12 rounds, 6.7" long, 1.2" wide, 4.3" tall, $425-$495
    Taurus 24/7 G2Compact, 13 rounds, 6.5" long, 1.2" wide, 5" tall, $400-$465

    They are all great guns, they all have different features and strengths and are all roughly the same price (the 24/7 is a little cheaper, but only by about $15-$20)

    I'm leaning toward the S&W, but only because it's so much lighter than the other two (Taurus=27oz, Sig=25oz, S&W=22oz)

    I'd like to hear your thoughts, opinions ect. on the matter. I've posted to a few other boards just to get a wide array of opinions.

    No question in my mind. Taurus 24/7. Has been reliable in the long run and it is a good lookin gun.

    Have you thought about the PT111 Mil G2?? 12 rds. and less expensive? I have the M&P40C and my Mil Pro's are so much more comfortable handling for me. In any case, nothing wrong with any of your three choices, but I'd look at the Mil G2 if you haven't already.

    I've never held or fired a Smith semiauto that impressed me. At all. And I don't like their take on the trigger safety idea. The warranty and the 1911 style safety would put the Taurus in my holster before the Sig.

    I'm really not a fan of the grip safety on springfields. That being said, i've enjoyed the few xd's i've shot

    I have the Sig P250SC 9mm and it's very nice and it has that transformer option. Very close in size to my MilPro PT145. I use the same holsters for both.

    I've been trying to find a range in my area (or within an hour drive) that has a pt11G2, but i haven't been able to find one.

    Also the two 111G2's I've seen at my local gun shop were priced the same as the 24/7G2C, I flipped a coin on the one I should consider (and I thought the full size extra mag with the 24/7 was a nice addition for range time. I'd never carry the 17-round mag for edc, but it's nice to not have to reload quite as often)

    But the 111G2 is definitely on my radar.

    This is a purchase i'll be making in roughly1-3 months, so I should have enough time to weigh all my options.

    Why do you need a big carry?
