Anyone have experience with the Raw Dog ITWB holster? Looking for a good ITWB holster that will be comfortable and secure the pistol good.

My fav is my Springfield XD Mod2. Then my XDM, my XDS after that. All in 9mm. My fav for power but lacking a back strap passive safety like my SA pistols is my 10mm Glock29.

I've been looking more and more for a bigger pistol to have in case I want to carry something with more capacity, and just to have to shoot around with, and I'm kind of torn between something like a Springfield 1911 or a Glock 21. What do you guys think?

1911 all the way (won't give you much capacity but) very ergo and accurate. I have a pre WW1 Colt 1911 and it shoots like a dream. I used to have a 9mm 1911 'race gun' for competition shooting. 1911 FTW, everybody owns a Glock.

I'm kind of liking the Springfield Armory Mil-Spec 1911. Anyone of you guys have that pistol?

Agreed. I love my Kimber TLE RL II and would carry it everyday if I could...

It comes down a lot to preference. See if you can get a hold of both and decide which you like better. Personally, Glock ergonomics feel like complete *** in my hand, whereas a 1911 feels like it was made for my hand. So my obvious choice is the 1911, but at the end of the day it's all personal preference.

I have a GI Mil-Spec.

Great gun. I had some FT feed issues at first, but once I got a few hundred rounds in it, it was good to go. I don't use it for CC. Too heavy, and honestly don't like to CC guns with an external hammer or safety anymore.

Those are good looking guns. Did you buy yours new?

Yes. I can't remember how long ago, but it's been several years. Back then I believe I got it for right around $500. From what I've seen on prices for these it was a great investment.

I just picked up my first handgun a S&W MP22 to get my feet wet into home protection. I previously had a Ruger 10/22 LR but found it was more hassle to take out and go shoot due to it's size.

Goal is to get my wide comfortable with the 22 then step up to a 9mm of some sort as a final solution to home protection.

I shot a Springfield XDM 9mm then shot a SW M&P9...HATED the XDM after the M&P9 due to feel. I have recently learned about a HiPoint 9mm ("cheap" I know but it will mostly stay in the case at the house).

I've been thinking about carrying but need to learn more about guns/options before doing that.

Which is what I keep hearing but have looked into WHY they "suck". 90% of the time it's due to loading issues caused from feed ramp not smooth enough or mag holder spring is too weak and the fingers on the mag need to be "adjusted". AFTER all that is resolved I see people saying the gun is not as bad as everyone makes it seem.

Sure, all things I mentioned SHOULD NOT need to be tweaked in order for the gun to work, but it's no different than buying Pacesetter L/T's and tweaking them to fit vs buying Kooks/ARH LOL.

I haven't shot it yet...I could hate it. Just by picking it up the grips/stock sucks something fierce...

I am not sure where Hi-Points are priced, but you can catch a S&W Sigma on sale around here for $299 sometimes. Not much more and has none of those issues.

About $100-$150. Get what you pay for sort of deal. Money no object i would be into a M&P9 right now. But I would like to shoot a other versions of 9mm before dropping $400+

I thought the same thing when I picked up my Taurus PT145. I loved the ergonomics of the gun so much I sent it to Taurus twice to fix issues which were never resolved. Most they should be used for is plinking. It's not guaranteed after you make those tweaks that it'll work like it should.
