I am looking to purchase my first handgun and then will get my ccw license here in Indiana and start carrying. My top two choices right now are the Ruger SR9 and the Springfield Xd 9mm (compact or sub compact). I like the fact that the ruger has a manual safety and the XD has a grip safety and both have trigger safeties. Both in the low 400's and have the ability to hold 13 or more rounds. Are there other guns that are similar that I should consider? Any thing else to consider?
