Default Next gun debate, part II

So, what should my next gun be? looking .45 for concealed carry.

Springfield XDS?

Glock?

Sig?

Thoughts?

Kimber Ultra Carry II in stainless. 3 inch barrel.

1911 frame for a concealed carry ain't fer errboddie; but it works for me.

Go to the range and see what feels most comfortable to you. The balance, weight and even the hand grip can be a big play in how you feel shooting the gun and thus your confidence with it. Trigger actions can vary from gun to gun so make sure to try more than one example of the gun once you have narrowed it down.

Confidence is key. The size or stopping power is not important. The most important thing is what you are most likely to use effectively in a stressful situation.

I hope this helps.
