I've been lookin around here on this forum for like a week now. I finally got around to shooting my buddy's M9 the other day and that pretty much made me want an M9. Here is my dilemma... I went around to some local gun shops and asked about the M9 (hadn't really even thought about the M9-A1 at the time) one shop is getting back to me with a price, and another quoted an M9 on sale for $369 as long as I ordered before Tuesday. When I got home, I looked on CDNN. They don't have any M9s but their M9-A1 is $339 (with a free laser). The accessory rail is cool and all but I think this pistol will probably be my carry pistol when I finally get my permit and I can't imagine that the added size of the accessory rail, much less with an accessory, would make it too easy for a holster. I'm also worried about the lack of the extra safety there in front of the trigger. Does anyone have any advice/suggestions for me? I'm just not sure what to do. Thanks in advance.
