having trouble making a decision

Any sig is a good sig
i'm stuck on a decision on whether or not to buy a smaller carry gun. i currently carry a ruger p95 and a sig p228. but with summer approaching, looking to get into something easier to carry.

i'm looking to buy either a kel tec pf-9

or

a taurus pt 145

i don't really need another, but would love to add another to my collection. especially a smaller and lighter for carry.

any thoughts? i'm not just stuck on these 2 models, but they are definitely my top 2 picks as of right now

I have Kel-Tec PF9 and it's comparable to my Kahr PM9 that I carry all year long. If I didn't;t have my Kahr I'd be carrying it all the time.

That's all you need to justify it, so go ahead and get yourself a new pistol!

I also have a PF-9 and consider it an excellent choice in a small handgun. I believe you will find a small pistol which fires an adequate round is a prudent addition to your carry choices.

Go for the Springfield Armory EMP 1911 in 9mm or .40 Smith. You'll never regret that purchase.

I'd recommend the Kahr CW-9. It runs just under $400 and it functions reliably and is accurate. I also agree that you would never regret the purchase of a Springfield EMP. It has a very high drool factor. :biggrin:

found the kahr cw9 for 400. still looking at the taurus pt 145 for 369.

not sure whether or not to go with the 9 or the 45.

i currently do not have a 45 in my collection.

too many options

anybody out there think the 45 would make a better carry?????????

the taurus weighs 23oz. the kahr weighs 13 oz. dry.

I own 2 Sigs (reference). I often carry my Taurus PT-145 in a Nemesis pocket holster in my cargo shorts with a 2nd mag on my left side. While it isn't a Sig, it's a great firearm. And 10+1 of 230gr ammo is amazingly compact. I have a small hand and it fits me incredibly well. I have 1200+ trouble free rounds through the PT-145 and am comfortable using it as a carry piece. Best of luck to you in your decision. Let us know.

Life is full of hard choices. I am trying to decide if I need another hand gun. I feel the need for a Sig 250. Especially in the sub compact mode. :biggrin:

HK, there are handguns I don't own, therefore I need another handgun.

That is pretty much the way I look at it. One can not have to many guns. The only thing that stands in the way of me solving that problem is money or a lack there of.

A vote for the Kel-Tec P11. Cheap, double action point-and-shoot, and mine's been dead reliable with everything that's been through it. Also conceals well(I have a comp-tac tuckable and it disappears under a loose tucked-in t-shirt) and it's 10+1 capacity.


Good luck with your decision.

I have a PT-145. I find that the Ruger SR9 is an easier carry for me. It is much slimmer and lighter than the Ruger P series. The SR9 is also slimmer than the PT-145. I would not hesitate to carry either one. The SR9 fits my build (kinda, sorta chubby) better.
