Big O, I just received a Gander Mountain flyer in the mail and they are currently having a sale on firearms. I don't know if you have a store in your area but it might be worth a look at. Typically GM's prices suck big time, but I did see a couple of things in the flyer that looked interesting.

Those little Rugers LCP Im told aren't pleasant to shoot



there not one you go to the range and shoot a couple 100 rnds with but they carry concealed very well


I like the LCP and carry it a lot. It conceals well too. A second LCP is definitely an option.



they make the lcp in 9mm now


No they don't make them in 9mm. Best go to Ruger's site and take a look at their offerings. The smallest 9mm is the lc9s.

I'm also in the market for a new pistol or 2. My .380 is a bit large and quite heavy by modern standards and I'm missing a size of 9mm (or 2) by modern notions.

I'm considering a Ruger lcp as a new .380 and will probably choose the new custom version of it if I choose to buy one.

The 2 9mm's in the running for me are the Sig P290rs and the Smith Shield. I've found they offer a model marketed to LEO's that have factory night sights and come with a second spare 8 rnd. magazine. I handled both pistols and like the feel of both but I didn't get a chance to try the trigger on the Shield yet. Best trigger wins. The Sig is DAO and the Shield is striker fired.

If you feel comfortable with something a bit larger you should take a look at the Sig P250 and P320 subcompacts and the Smith M&P subcompacts. The CZ Raimi could be a contender too but they are all metal and weigh a bit more but they are just such fine pistols.

I have a Walther PPK/S-1 .380 and it will take a fat hands meat off between the thumb and index finger.

My Bride has a S&W M&P 9 that she loves. It is full sized though. I have a Colt Defender (.45) that I absolutely love and a Sig pocket 380 as a back up. Lots of options out there these days BigO. Ensure the grip and trigger are to your liking and that the sites work for your eyes.

Glock 19 for me. Not gonna win any beauty contests, but it's accurate, surprisingly easy to carry and it's hard to beat a 15 rnd standard mag. I had a S&W M&P9c before that, but didn't like it. It was slightly smaller but didn't carry any easier and I didn't like the trigger.

I carry a kahr cw380 in my pocket on shorts and t-shirt days. You'll find mixed reviews on that one, but I must have been lucky and got a good one. I love that little thing.

I carry a kel-tec P11 it's chambered in 9mm.. it's accurate up to 20yds anything after that forget about it... It's to small though I got this big hand problem it doesn't fit my hand right but none of the smaller frames do... Now my Ruger P90 fits beautiful chambered in 45.... But that like carrying a cannon. I got this pump shotgun it's kinda small took an uncle Mike's holster and cut it and we'll you get the picture. It's a scary world we live in, it just better stay in the newspaper and on CNN. But the six P's tell us- proper planning prevents piss poor performance.

I actually work at Cabelas PT and we sell more S&W Shield 9mm that any other EDC. I like many of them but I am a Glock guy...........begin hating now! They are just designed, built and function better than anything out there! There is the G42 in .380 and the G43 in 9mm. I personally don't like any of the single stack EDC because I want as many rounds as possible at whatever I am aiming at. I'm also a big guy and they just don't fit my hand, even with the magazine, not clip, extension. I don't care for the Sigs or anything with the exposed hammer. It comes down to personal preference and what feels good in your hand. The S&W Shield, Springfield XD or Ruger LC9 are all pretty good sellers. I do want a minimum of 9mm. The main thing with any of these and what me and my guys at the gun counter preach is shoot what is comfortable and get plenty of range time so that when you have to use it, God forbid, it will be second nature.

I finally got off my arse and ordered pistols.

Got a Ruger LCP Custom last week Monday. The LCP Custom has sights big enough to use unlike the std. LCP. All the Gen2 LCP's have better triggers than the Gen1 guns but the Custom *may* be better than the std. as well.

Ordered a Sig P290RS on Monday and am impatiently waiting on its arrival. The first (closest) preferred FFL the website offered wanted $40 for the transfer fee. Thieves!! The one I wound up choosing is on the other side of Little Rock from me but only charges $5.50 per transfer.

Now I have to finish stocking ammo and magazines. Figure stuff like holsters won't be as hard to find as ammo and magazines. Gotta prioritize the funds ya know.

I carry a Glock 43 (9mm) or a Glock 27 (40), love the 27, don't mind the 43 when I want something smaller.

Kimber and Sig Sauer are featuring some really attractive models right now. I hope they fire as nicely as they look. Craftsmanship isn't really valued as much these days, it seems.

After some range shooting yesterday my new weapon will most likely be the Bersa thunder .380. Man that was a sweet shooting pistol. Very Happy

Hadn't even considered Bersa, but I will based on your review. Was it 9mm, .40 or .45?

I love a .380. When rapid fire and on target are needed its hard to beat them if you cannot control a larger caliber.

Hello Ring! Wow, I need to come on here more...

I have a Glock 17 (9mm) and a Glock 21(.45)

I love both of them. I have shot somewhere around 6000 - 8000 rounds through the 9mm. Very reliable & very accurate.
I have only had one failure to eject.

I carry my 17 in a Galco in the waist band holster. Very comfortable. https://amzn.com/B004AO6BUK

On a side note, I recently built an AR15 from scratch. Every spring, pin, screw etc. I learned a lot.
