    I am looking to purchase a CCW pistol. I am not into revolvers for carrying purposes, just to help defend the castle. I am looking at the H&K USP-C .40 and the Springfield XD 3in. Sub-compact in 9mm or .40cal. I already own a Glock 17 9mm and 22 .40cal. Should I just get another Glock?? Maybe the 10mm??

    Any suggestions?

    why not just carry one of the other weapons you already have or do you just want a change?

    If you're defending the "castle", do you need to CCW? I would think your Glock 17 would fit the bill, or perhaps a shotgun.

    Anyways, if I had to choose between your picks, I would take the XD.

    kar298 - I think a full size Glock is a little much to conceal. I know it isn't as bulky or heavy as a Browning or Beretta, but I was looking for something small and light.

    John Y - I use the revolver as home defense only. I don't carry it. I also have a 12ga. in the house. I want to be able to defend myself and family in public as well so I want a smaller semi auto to CCW when I leave the house.

    Why the XD and not the Hk??

    The difference between the HK and XD to me?
    I think the XD is the best value. .40 S&W would be a great combo for a compact gun.

    Look at the compact glock series, like the 19, easy to hide under a tshirt but still have 15+1 rounds to get the job done.

    Personally, i don't like the Xd's trigger...

    It seems like those who don't like Glock triggers DO like the Xd's trigger, but i think there is too darn much dead space in it...

    Thats my 2 cents anyway.

    To be frank, I'm not a fan of either Glock or the XD's trigger. I just answered based on ncglock's choices.

    Personally, I'd go for a compact 1911 in .45.

    It's not one of your choices but a sig p239 is a nice choice....I like mine. Otherwise an XD is a decent choice.

    I second the compact Glock. A 19C or if you like the .40 better a 23C. The 9mm is plenty with today's "premium" rounds, especially 15 of them!
