Hello to all. I recently completed a concealed carry class so am beginning the voyage of looking for that perfect cc weapon. I'm not new to firearms in general, but am quite new to handguns. I worked at a trapshooting club for nearly 6 years when I lived in Indiana, and was a member of the ATA for 3 of those years. Loved firing shotguns, and got into long range rifling towards the end of my highschool career. After highschool I joined the Air Force and didn't do much shooting of any sort after that. My dad gave me his Super Black Hawk for my 21st birthday, so I got did a little shooting here and there. After having 3 robberies to my house in the past year (yes I'll be moving soon lol) I decided I should look in to getting a good reliable semi-auto handgun.
Have been really looking into the Millennium Pro series as well as the Springfield Armory XD series and most likely a .40S&W

Welcome to the fourms.
Both XDs and the Millennium series are all excellent pistols. Depends on which one fits you and your needs. As much as I'd like to tell you that Taurus is the only way to go I can't. Others are the same way. We can advise so far and tell of our experiences. That's about it.

Getting the feel for each brand, make, and model will take some actual hands on by you.

Feel free to ask away and study things.

We have Millennium Pro and XD owners here. Or they own both types so you came to the right place.

Do recommend reading the FAQs forum over and reading old and new threads to get caught up to speed.

Will admit to being a either a .357/.38 Special aficianado or one for the 9x19 caliber.

All the cartidges that are .38 Special and above give a good level of protection.

Here's some links to read as homework since you are just getting started. These may be of some use. You mentioned .40 S&W, but good cases can be made for the 9mm. or .45ACP as well. That's not what these links are about. Mostly related to the .40 S&W or data that is pertinent.

That should do for know.

Have rep to protect as " Da Professor". Kidding of course, but there is good solid info in the links.

Excellent information sir! I appreciate it. I was reading through the FAQ before I even made my first post, there is a lot of VERY good information on there. I specially agree with the thread about breaking in your weapon, that's been something I've done quite ritually with every shotgun and rifle I've owned and I'm quite sure aided in keeping them in grade A condition.

Welcome from Minnesota! The 40S&W is a good choice. Many don't like them, but
it's all up to what you like to shoot. The PT140 is nice.
You might want to check out the Glock 23 or the XD-40.
If you want to go a little higher, the Sig P229 is great or the P239
for a smaller carry gun. Lots to pick from. Have fun.
