    I just picked up a S&W Sub 1911 and wore it about all day. Even without a holster (I haven't decided on one yet) it felt comfortable inside the belt.

    Way better than my S&W 625 .45ACP revolver. I know not even close but that's what I used to carry. I'm used to the .45ACP round.
    Traded in the old for something new. Great trade price too makes me love the Sub 1911 even more.

    Ruger SR9c in a IWB Shielded Holster kydex leather hybrid. After shooting many pistols I decided on the SR9c because it ranked the highest on my scale of fit, function and concealability.

    Most of the time it is this one. I dont have to dress around it, just slip it in a pocket holster and in my pocket and go.
    Guess I have just gotten a little lazy about dressing around other guns now...this one is just too easy to carry all the time.

    Springfield, I'm assuming... oops, maybe you meant the brand of your kydex paddle holster. If so, please ignore me. ;)

    May I ask what Make, Model, and Caliber this one is. It looks very nice.

    I'll back you up on this one. I've not bought the "my gun is bigger than your gun" argument. I'm carrying it "just in case" not to have a firefight.

    Looks like a NAA .22 WMR. I'd wonder how fast a draw of that would be.

    Im not looking to firefight either, but, that is a marginal caliber at best with no range but arms length. You would not want to carry a gun in a pocket with ANYTHING else. Since you are eliminateing a pocket with one of these, get a snub .38 at least. Or a small .380.

    NAA makes some very interesting and very small firearms that will fit the bill and surpass the FBI's recommendations. Can't walk into any old gun store or sporting goods shop and pick up ammo for them, but if the numbers are true, impressive nonetheless.

    .25 NAA and .32 NAA Guardian models. http://www.naaminis.com/index02.html

    Personally my kel-tecs are small enough and can work with any clothing with minimal adjustment, but I have considered the NAA revolvers as well for options. Not as a primary carry mind you.

    Yeah I deep conceal a Keltec P-32. Obviously not the best choice for a firefight but I'm not going to look for one either. Rather have something than nothing.

    I don't think that most of us would "look" for a firefight, but honestly being underprepared when things do go bad is not my preference. However the gun you have now is better than none at all. I've heard positive tales of self defense with a 22 wmr, as well as things gone wrong with a .45.

    Speed of draw and fire would be your first concern, accuracy right up there, then caliber. Although none of those 3 should be neglected. Nor are they mutually exclusive.

    In today's market of small firearms, I personally think a person can go with a .380 or higher with very little sacrifice, but it's your life not mine.

    Here's to hoping we never have to test these concepts, but me, I'll still go 9mm primary carry.

    It's generally difficult to carry my G-23 on the job so the P-32 works just fine for me. I considered the P3AT but I opted for mag capacity. I do have an extra mag with me as well. I would have to agree with having a generally accepted LE caliber and I do 90% of the time, but I deep conceal the Keltec when I can't have the other. Better to have something than nothing. And, the Keltec has been shot many times (not at people :) ) so I don't worry about the reliability of it. Been a nice little firearm.

    Similar here on the P32. Plus I find i can one hand and off hand shoot the p32 far more accurately than most other subcompact options i've tried. Secondary magazines are not just for ammo capacity, but in case of magazine failure. I try to carry 2 mags when i can. Just hate those 10 round mags, my grip tends to get the feed just off enough to cause issues.

    Bersa two toned .380 pistol. Will be getting a revolver just for the inherent safety of them and I can get a large revolver with a long barrel. This only for the home. I do not carry. Even if it is just a .22 there are some that are really big in size and barrels out there that would make me run if I saw one. And eight shots is nice. Of course it can be .22 mag also. Then I can get more play time a lot cheaper with them. Would probably just go standard .22lr. Gotta sell what I have first. Just bought this three months ago. I am nervous may be the term about autos. You have to remember if there is one in the chamber. Then the safety. A revolver you just load it up and its ready. So ya the bersa .380 two tone has got to go first then the mach 2 bull barrel rifle by savage I will be selling as well. Simmons 4x32 scope with it.
