I already own a ruger P94DC in the .40s&w round.
I am really leaning to getting a 9mm over a 10mm or a 45acp. Mainly for practice and ocasionally shooting the heads off of some snowshoes. Accuracy, smaller frame, and reliability are of the most important traits I am looking for. The firearm must not have a hammer and it does not need to have a safety.... But Its a plus to me if it has one.
I have got my search down to the ruger sr9, smith and wesson m&p9, or springfield XDM. I do not want a glock as I like things made in the USA. I seem to be leaning heavily to the m&p for the accuracy and reliability. If there is an overwhelming amount of people who would rather have the XDM, I would get that handgun.
So let me know what you fellas think. Is there any other handguns that would fit the bill that are within the same price range? Let me know if I am missing something here. Thanks in advance,
