Both or my favorites are Smith and Wessons.

My usual carry gun is a 331 - a 32 H+R Airlite with Crimson Trace lasergrips. I can hit a 6 inch group very reliably out to 75 feet off a quick draw. 32 H+R is one of the most underrated cartridges out there. It's limited production keeps the price too high for casual shooters. Reloading is a must. It's kinetic energy is about the same as a 38 special, but smaller size allows 6 shots in a K frame, rather than 5 for a 38 special.

My "heavy" if I feel a need to carry it is a Smith 610. It's a 10mm revolver that loads with steel clips, like the model 25 or 625 (45 acp). The 10mm is also a reloader's cartridge. Developed for use by the FBI - it was considered too powerful for most applications. Sometimes, too much, is just right. It's an accurate piece as well - but, being an N frame in stainless, it is a bit heavy for every day carry.

The Springfield XP lines are a great natural blance and ergonomic grips are interchangable.
Unlike similar Glocks, when you point it, the balance is already in good natural elevation on the target.
The typical price ranges are about $7 or $800, typically.

For a similar ergonomic feature, with as good of rating and performance, at a lower cost around $400 is the Taurus 24/7



Both have 15 rnd clips, standard, in .40 cal or 17 rnd capacity in 9mm.
.40 cal has a higher theoretic knock down capacity, but 9mm is a slighly faster muzzle velocity.

Both rounds are as common as the .45 cal S&W which is a slower muzzle velocity and less clip capacity.

Both of these have field ratings, durability and stress testing, every bit as good, or better than Glock; both have had better safety features than Glock, and both are far better balanced and ergonomic than Glocks.

If you are not sure, then stick to a good revolver.
I like .357 mag. because you can also use .38 and a nice diversity of powder charges and ball weights.

I like S&W for revolvers.

I did not like the handling and feel of the semi autos.

Do a sight check, balance and handling comparison by simply doing the following:

Pick up the firearm and extend arm in a right to left or left to right sweeping motion or simply raise the gun and point it at the target.
Now look down the sights to see if the natural balance is 1. on target 2. low or 3. high.

I found with this simple test, that most semi autos will tend to be naturally low.... whereas I found both the Spingfield XD and Taurus 24/7 were naturally the correct elevation, without having to adjust my natural point and shooting style.

One other point I liked about .40 cal is the diversity of availability of different charges, ball weights and types of ammo for different purposes, much like 357 revolvers.

Nothing like a good .357 mag. for consitancy in target grouping, for a 'Heavy'.

Light weight stuff, like purse or pocket guns, I would select a short barreled revolver, for ease of concealment and fast dependability. What would you recommend as far as .cal size?
