Just take a look at the Glock G30S. 10 round mag, and takes the G21 13 round mags for followup. Easy to carry concealed. I use appendix carry with an overshirt, and don't print. I put a Pyramid trigger in mine, and now it's my preferred off-duty EDC. I still love my compact 1911, and the way it absorbs the recoil (those 230 HST's leave the barrel in a bad mood), but with the reduced carry weight + round count + still plenty accurate at likely engagement ranges, the Glock is my first choice for EDC.
36 rounds -vs- 21 (3 mags). Of course, if you're a good shot and only face one or two adversaries, 21 is plenty enough, so...

There are other, and maybe better choices out there, but I'm good with what I have. FWIW, a fellow LEO has an XD-M (?) in .45ACP and swears by it. He's sharp, so I trust his opinion in those matters.

Pick what fits your hand, and practice hard. It's not the will to win, but the will to practice to win, that usually carries the fight.

Keep us advised. I carry a Glock, but don't own stock. I'd dump it tomorrow for a better option.
I have a full size XD and carried the XDs 45 for years. I just wanted more rounds. I have and have had a few Glocks. I wanted the 30s at first but changed my mind rather quickly. I’ll let you know what I go with.

Just for my info, what changed your mind about the 30S? If there's a problem with it, I'd reallllly like to know. For me, changing the trigger made a big difference. Still...hard to beat the light SA trigger and heavy metal of the RIA .45 compact. Love that gun. More I think about it, the more I'm leaning towards putting that one back in the #1 slot for EDC.

Several good options out there. With what little I know about you, I'd be interested in what you end up with, and would likely give it a look.

Nothing. It's just that it's a Glock. I don't want another Glock.

After holding a bunch (S&W, Glock, Springfield, and Sig), the Sig was my favorite. I know how the first 3 shoot. Never shot a Sig.
