I have multiple handguns including that one and my "car" gun is a dan wesson 1911.
But the one that I carry most is a north american arms 22 magnum 5 shot. It NEVER does not go with me as it just fits right inside your pocket. Yeah, I know, its a 22 magnum. But what you will find with most folks is a pistol is cumbersome and they end up not carrying it. The best pistol is the one you are carrying. I usually carry two but the small one is always with me. I also carry the M & P in a ankle holster as it is the compact.

None of the above.

I carry infrequently but when I do, It's always my Bond Snakslayer 2 shot derringer, fits in your pocket like a set of keys or in it's tiny ballistic nylon holster. One chamber has a 410 shotshell with No.8 and the other has a hollow point 45 Long Colt.

First one to get the attention and cause terminal acne, the second one to drill a large hole.....

If you need more than two, you are done for anyway.

I have a Kimber and a Wilson but I prefer the small but mighty derringer.
Randy,
Sidecarflip,
I saw the coolest little gun the other day . You guys may have seen one before I cannot remember the name for sure but It may have been a richardson arms. The handle folds up like a pocket knife the guy was carring it in the little pocket on the side of his pants leg (he was wearing carharts) It has the little clip just like a fold up pocket knife has that you clip to your pocket . neatest thing I have seen it comes in a 22 or 22 Mag tiny little 5 shot revolver. He said it cost $200.00 "If" you can find one.

The "Flying ashtrays" made my morning! Haven't heard that one in quite some time. Thanks for the grin!

Just kidding Coach.

My side arm is Glock 20, 10mm. Got it when I was in Panama and we have been 'close' ever since!

Mom's packin a Colt Python .357 6" and a S&W Bodyguard as her CC baby, she's named it 'Kevin'.. she loved Kevin Costner in 'Bodyguard'

I call my Glock "Hans"...

Doc
LOL I wanted a 10mm, but I can hardly find ammo for it around here, and while I will load for my 40, I would just as soon buy my pistol ammo. So, I bought the 40 S&W. It shoots well, but the trigger sucks! Maybe someday when I have more patience and time to reload for one I will get a 10mm.

Wish I was. He has more hair than I do. I'm a bit light on top. Don't understand why in as much as I'm half Sioux and Indians aren't supposed to be bald.....
