Interesting thought, Like alot of concealed carry people I have gone back and forth on comfort concealability and firepower, My last criteria went to at least 10rds 40S&W, frame mounted up safe down fire safety, 3.5-4" barrel weiging around 26 oz or less, ended up with a Beretta 9000S because it was there and really cheap from a guy wanting something else. Now this gun has proven reliable and accurate if I take my time but it has a crappy trigger long rest etc etc, But it occured to me I wouldnt even consider shooting it in IDPA or IPSC match. Why you ask? because I'd get my butt kicked and I am pretty competitive, so why am I trusting life and limb to a weapon that I wouldnt play a game with ? Hum makes me wonder.
