    The Glocks are nice if that's the design you like. I have a few. In compact 9mm I also have a Para Ordinance Hawg 9 that is a compact 1911 frame. It's very comfortable and I carry it frequently.

    It all depends on your specific needs, habits, and taste.

    I am posting part of an article from another forum that I think everyone wanting to Cary a Concealed Weapon (CCW) needs to think about. I hope the origional author doesn't mind.

    Read this before you decide to carry!

    CCW is what I perceive to be the most personally responsible decision I have made third only to my wedding vows and active service to this great country. Concealed carry is NOT playing cowboys and indians (pardon my age tell) and I知 afraid that痴 exactly what many are doing today. When we post encounters as entertainment rather than a positive outcome from our correct decisions we only feed to a 泥enny Crain type response.

    When you decide to carry a concealed weapon, you have burdened yourself with tremendous responsibilities including, but not limited to, physical fitness, firearm and CQB training, in-depth knowledge and handling skills of your weapon of choice and the moral obligation that the issuing authority extracts from you when you applied for the CCW license.

    When your 'go criteria' are met, you MUST draw your concealed carry and if nothing else has changed, it痴 not time to talk, it's time to defend yourself with your loud finger. If that reaction isn稚 one smooth 僧uscle memory? you*e dead! PLEASE NOTICE: I did not say if you draw you must shoot. That痴 why I included the ?U>CHANGE</U> caveat because if the BG turned and ran I would clear the area and then reholster.

    I would also report the incidence to the local police/county sheriff. This gives them a heads-up on the BG in their area and protects me for going non-concealed. Brandishing, here in South Florida, is prosecuted harshly to control the gangsters and road rage.

    There is no fun in concealed carry; it痴 a profession that must be executed by professionals. If you do not embrace this school of thought, you have no business being armed. If you don't embrace this, it is my fear that I or my loved ones could become part of your collateral damage.

    I need to emphasize the gravity of this carry decision with these two points;

    A. Use your head (your most powerful weapon) and only draw and fire your weapon to save you or someone痴 life. This is the only righteous shooting. Anything else will find you in a cage or a box. Long before you put yourself in the 壮hoot position, you better have completed all the legal requirements that allow you to be there. In addition you must complete the following personal conditions;

    1. Training,
    2. Understand and accept the moral obligation that the issuing authority extracts from you when you applied for the CCW license,
    3. Training,
    4. The moral mettle to take a life,
    5. Training,
    6. Know and keep up on the laws covering carry in the location you are armed (political boundaries and building restrictions),
    7. Training,
    8. At a bare minimum have a gun rights lawyer痴 phone number on your cell痴 speed dial,
    9. Training,
    10. Retain that lawyer if you can afford it,
    11. and did I mention training?
    HAVE FUN

    Life is easier when you plow around the stumps.

    Also, my 16 year-old daughter wants to learn to shoot so I don't want anything that is gonna tear her up...

    thanks for the advice!

    It seems many here have the idea that the carry permit means, casual use is okay. We had one pull his and wave it over a gasoiine dispenser incident. Too bad everyone was ducking and did not get his plate number..Also waving it at another driver, over road rage or lane infringement. I mainly started carrying for the robberies of fellow friends and Protection of my family and grandchildren.....I Know it has a definite penalty for the use of said weapon, even if i do not discharge it?
    Okay, Legal disclaimer: Old but not senile, definitely do not have the answer to everything!

    I also have the Keltec and it is a good gun. Easy to carry and the kick is not as bad as I read online.

    Keltec trigger pull is not the best, but it is reliable and easily controllable.I shoot all weights of bullets in it. The first out, is a hollowpoint hydrashock...I do have a lot bigger and badder type pistols to use..but most of the time no-one knows I have it...

    M&P 9mm. They have different sized grips to fit a variety of hand sizes.

    The trigger pull is the same for each round, it is not a DA/SA pistol.

    I have a smaller frame M&P 45 that shoots very well.
