I carry a Glock 17 or a Smith & Wesson 380...I will probably upgrade the 380 to something more powerful. I both concealed carry and open carry; here in Kentucky open carry has been legal for so long no one even notices. Also, I carry everyday; it is part of my morning dressing routine. Dean Weber

I'm quite sure the FNS also comes in a version without the safety. The 19 is also on my list, but I would need to upgrade to TruGlo sights.

No... but... I have a FNS-9 and while I enjoy shooting it, I wouldn't want it as an everyday carry, even in a compact size. The safety is the main feature holding me back. It's surprising how frequently I forget I engaged the safety. On the range I'll site the pistol... press the trigger and ... whoops... safety is on.  So in a situation where I would need to draw my weapon (so far numbering zero), I don't want a whoops. I carry a Springfield xds and think it's pretty great BUT, if I was doing it all again, I would probably go for a Glock 19 (or 23 if you're so inclined). It's a good pistol with a long history of success.The Ford F-150 of the shooting world if you will.

Anyone tried the FNS-9C (compact)? Reading a lot of very positive reviews.

I completed my concealed carry class last night at Palmetto State Armory here in Columbia SC.  It was a very well prepared and executed class.  The instructor was very professional though relaxed and funny, so the class was good.  I've got to brag a bit out of the twelve of us that were in the class, I was the only perfect score of 100 written and 100 range!  Now granted, I could have been throwing baseballs and hit the target as much, but I was keeping my group tight!  I sent my packet off this morning, and according the SLED website, it should take about 90 days until I find out whether it's been approved.

Matt T, I have a 5.7 I can carry just fine here in TN and altho' my groups are not great, I can get on the paper at 100 yards. Do I need that kind of power? Not really. Of course, when I shoot the silhouette I'm not concerned with small grouping as much as I am CoM groupings (6" - 8").

Comment by John A. on July 8, 2015 at 11:57am

Matt,  I understand what your saying.  I will use the PT111 for daily carry but the Shield for those places that I'm wearing difficult clothes to conceal in.  Probably ankle.  I'm a fairly decent shot, though I will put the Shield through its paces at the range before purchase.  If it doesn't give me the accuracy, then I may look at something else.

Comment by Matt T on July 8, 2015 at 7:50am
And yes - I perfectly conceal a full size M & P 9 every day.
Comment by Matt T on July 8, 2015 at 7:49am
Do you really want to trust your life to a sub compact? The caliber isn't the issue - but accuracy and ease of use. I can have a 3 inch group at 20 ft with a full size M&P, can't do that with the compact or shield. Think about it. The smaller the pistol, the greater the liability.
Comment by John A. on July 8, 2015 at 7:49am

Steven,  I know what you mean about legal issues.  I have my concerns as I am a law abiding citizen and retired military.  I'd hate to tarnish my reputation by being stupid.  Though I have been accused of that from time to time.  I am taking all the advice and recommendations on board, from not only this forum but the instructors and info at Palmetto and others.  Although I went through extensive firearms training in the military, that was a different environment and rules.  The safety is the same, but everything else is different.  I'm going into this as a novice and appreciate all instruction.
