I agree with that, great gun to carry in summer when you dont have a jacket or sweatshirt on. It helps to have a nice load like the Hornady critical defense ready to go down the pipe. In the colder months I like to carry my S&W model 60 in 357.jayson said:ruger lcp is my favorite to carry, i forget its in my pocket and i can carry it virtually anytime no matter what im wearing
+1 on this advise and the general advice you already have from others. My personal preference, and what I practice with, is a Taurus 85 Ultralite 5-shot .38 Special with Crimson Trace laser grip and low-recoil ammo. I prefer a simple small double-action revolver concealable in a pocket holster or belt holster. I do carry an extra speedloader and I practice using it.fallscity1 said:Jeff,
you asked the Ford, Chevy, Dodge, Nissan, Toyota question...
It must fit you, be reliable, and easy for you to carry comfortably.
Some guys will go on and on about caliber and capacity but the reality is it has to be individual to you.
Any gun is better than no gun when you need a gun.
A 5 shot pocket revolver in .38 is enough for some while others take a full size 1911 in .45 and everything else in between.
Are you gonna be a pocket man or a holster man?
wheel gun or auto loader?
there are tons of trade offs in size, capacity, caliber, concealability, reliability etc...
My advice is shoot everything that you can and pick up and fondle/holster/pocket all that you can till you find the happy medium for you.
Have fun and let us know what you end up with!
