Howdy y'all

My first time here....I've been considering adding an S9 as a second carry gun/car gun to back up my HK P7. From what y'all say, perhaps the HK will end up backing up the S9! Its been a long while since I've owned a Steyr (had an AUG back in the 90s, but a bout of poverty forced its very unfortunate sale.) The S9s and M9s I've handled seem to be of great quality, and I like the S9 size and balance. Feels a bit like my trusty HK. Still, I haven't had the opportunity to fire one, so I figured I'd turn to the internet for some advice. Does anyone here use the S9 as a carry gun? Is it as concealable as it seems to be? And can anyone lead me to a deal on an S9? (Used or new, so long as its in good shape when I get safe queens in my life!) I feel like I saw them around $300 last time I was at a gun show, but that was a while ago, and now they're closer to $400 on gunsamerica....Again, howdy and I look foward to reading more from y'all.

I carry my S9 as my primary defence piece. It conceals OK in a OWB holster under a sport shirt. Whatever litle bulge may show is easily attributable to a cell phone. It sorta conceals in a cargo pocket in my camo shorts, as in I have done it but prefer a .38 snubbie for that application. I paid $350 for it at the Amarillo Gun Show in Spring '05- LNIB with 3 magazines in the priginal case. It's a sweet piece and I can recommend it without reservation. Functioning has been flawless from the 1st round (4-500 rds fired). You will be glad you got one long after you quit thinking what you paid for it. Anyhow, it's lots cheaper than a Glock and not ugly as a mud fence.
