    Beretta Nano. It's on the large side of small, but it shoots like a larger gun. Love mine. I've seen them in the $399-$429 range.

    Darn right.

    With training you can avoid the tendency to expose a long arm beyond where your ability to see a hidden bad guy in close quarters. You end up moving much slower, though, and it starts getting much harder to cover areas that might contain a hidden bad guy.

    A handgun offers much less real estate to grab onto, and can be used to cover or shoot from a retention position. Both hands are on the handgun as well, negating most if not all the advantage of the hold you can have on a long arm. It's not the bad guy who is willing to openly charge a shotgun you should worry about, it's the bad guy who surprises you from hiding and tries to disarm you when you're not ready for it. If such a bad guy can get inside the muzzle radius of your long arm you have a serious problem.

    Doing it right is far slower.

    Glock 19. Get your GSSF membership and find a dealer that honors that. Usually 19,26,17,23,22,27 and all the 357 models sell for either $398 or $425 I think. I got my Glocks for $398. It's a great deal

    Ruger SR9 or SR9c The SR9c takes a 10 round magazine or the 17 round magazine from the SR9. It come in the box with both magazines, and an adaptor for the 17 round magazine. The versatility between the 2 size mags, makes it a great CC or home defense, just by changing the magazine. I bought my SR9, before the gun prices went crazy, and then bought the SR9c brand new in Jan for $425.

    Kel Tec PF-9. Runs about $280. Great little gun, and very light.

    The Keltecs are good guns for small cash. I've been looking at the Ruger LC9, which I think is $450 or less. It's a little nicer than the Keltecs, and I've heard good things about it. I have a G19 but I'm looking for something smaller to keep in a bag while the G19 stays at home for HD.

    I just read an article about the SCCY CPX-2, which goes for $300 and got some positive reviews. I haven't seen one myself.

    one of my local gun shops has a Czech made Makarov for $250. So, how about a Makarov.

    I'm liking the Baretta Nano as well! Again, my next gun purchase is going to be one of those mini-nine's for CC.
