OK.....After the replies here and on another site, as well as some of my research, I am leaning heavily towards the 10mm. Figured I'd start a different thread so no one thinks the old one is still dragging on. Any do's or don'ts, or brands to avoid and reasons would be greatly appreciated. Also frame size and barrel length. I am not as concerned with CC as I am accuracy & stopping power. The CC part may come later once my CC permit arrives in the mail, and may even be a different gun altogether.
