    That "RAMI" is a new one to me. Looks pretty cool. Anybody on here have one of those? In MA? Where can they be found, in MA?

    So, you're saying nobody stocks them then? I guess it is no wonder I haven't seen nor heard of them.

    i just got the value version of the 3913, the 908S. 8+ 1 da/ sa, points well, and it is not plastic.

    the 69xx is going to be double stack, but it can use pre ban 5900 mags and that gets you 15 + 1, I have a 6946 configured this way.

    Sig Sig Sig!
    p938 with hollow point
    Our home has 3 of them for carry

    but I love my P320 357sig carry.
    I feel as though I can hit an ant on the side of a barn at 50 meters
    actually doing it isn't the same as feeling but it gives you an idea about my confidence with the weapon

    I thought that was just for shipping, not store sales. Besides, I don't usually pay attention to that stuff, unless I had a need to.

    The 6906 will accept 5900 mags. MecGar is currently producing them. Just bought five from Cheaper Than Dirt for $20 each. Unfortunately they are 10 round MA mags; high caps are available for lucky folks in the free states.

    PS S&W CS isn't what it used to be, but Numrich carries parts for the 6906. I just replaced the hammer and sear in mine for a very reasonable price and the operation was a success.

    You could fix that.

    I'm getting desperate.

    My pistol lacks a select fire switch,
    but all the shops in Mass say they're out of .45 SCP.

    Should I try NH?

    Thanks in advance...

    Glock 18 would be an option.

    Vote for p320 compact... 320's have become my fave gun.

    I do love the p225 though. Don't like the weight.

    The OP said no striker fired.

    I like my USPc 9mm, lighter than steel Sigs and a little smaller. I think the Walther P99 is also an option.

    HK USPc isn't very slim or compact. It's a big gun and very space inefficient. A Glock 19 is significantly smaller -- I know, you don't want a Glock, but it is a reasonable size comparison.

    SIG 239 is a reasonable size, but single stack only so less than 10 rounds. 229 is significantly bulkier. I agree with Mark that a 3913 might be the ticket, though personally I can't stand slide-mounted safeties.

    Had the CZ75b, loved it.

    Have the Jericho 941, love it...I expect it's easier to get your hands on a CZ 'round here.

    Both heavy, accurate, no problems ever with any ammo.

    S&W 1911 .45 3" Pro works good for me.

    I love the 1911 and will likely buy another...I am however leaning towards the 9mm simply because of the economics involved. I know, Im cheap.

    Yes, it is, but it otherwise meets the DA SA requirement.

    In all seriousness, have you gotten to a gun store yet and rented some guns to shoot? There's the Mass Firearms School, the place in Attleboro, Midstate Guns and Sakonnet River Outfitters in RI, Manchester Firing Line in NH (sure there's more too).

    Very likely to visit Mass Firearms in the near future.

    I have one and I hate it because there is a bump in the top of the trigger housing that gives me a blister when I put rounds through it as my finder sits low on the trigger. More irritating than anything but still. My wife loves the gun as do some of my friends. The DA pull is crazy heavy trigger on mine and I inquired about getting it lightened and was told I cannot.

    That is why you need to shoot it.
