    Well I am getting that itch to get a new pistol for the collection and I wanted to know whats your favorite sidearm to carry.

    I have a Walther PPS and a Glock 19, I like both alot and am looking to add to the stable any thoughts and suggestions you might have would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance for your comments

    I heard they were having problems with the LCP, good size for summer carry but was told not that accurate and a good kick to it. Have you found that to be true at all ?

    Can't say enough good things about my Springfield XD sub-compact. I carry the .40 and the wife carries the same in 9mm.

    I have carried a Sig .40 and a Beretta 9mm (both for past jobs) and I really do love the Springfield for everyday carry.

    I do want to buy a Beretta when I get the money though.

    For OC my CZ-82 12+1 9x18


    For CC my Taurus Pt111 MilPro SS 12+1 9x19


    The CZ is such a sweet shooter I can overlap shots at 35 yards..

    The Taurus while not quite as easy to shoot is very nice for when CC is the best plan as it has a nice flat profile!

    Holy mother, that Hi-Point is ugly, you weren't kidding!
    I must say though, that if it goes bang every time, and is relatively accurate, then that's all that matters.

    For OC I usually carry my Dan Wesson Commander Bobtail (nice choice there sevenplusone).

    For CC I usually carry either my Kahr CW40 or my Bersa .380.

    If the front pockets of my pants are large enough I'll usually have a Kel-Tec P-32 riding in there also. If the pockets are toosmall I'll put an extra mag on my belt for whatever I'm carrying that day.

    Well right now I only have one gun, Sig P225 9mm... Eventually I'd like to turn this gun into my CC/OC summer carry, and a Ruger GP100 .357 Mag revolver into my winter carry.

    I have one and I love it. It was the second pistol I ever bought (I sold the first pistol I bought to buy the GP100). It has been 100% reliable and is one of the most accurate guns I own.

    I had one as well. It was my second pistol. 6" Stainless Steel barrel, full underlug, Rosewood handle inserts.. I loved that gun. I still greatly regret getting rid of it.

    I've sold two guns in my life and I don't plan on selling anymore. The first one was a Ruger .45 auto when they had just come out. I couldn't hit the earth with that thing if I dropped it, no regrets in selling it. The second was a .40 Browning Hi Power. I still kick myself for selling that gun.
