    Default Carry and Conceal discussion

    How many of you folks carry and conceal with a Permit or otherwise? I have a permit and carry the new Beretta Nano 9mm. Used to carry a S&W Sigma .40 but found it too big to conceal. The Nano hides nicely

    I have experimented with many different weapons. The 3 inch 1911's are the best option I have found for accuracy, power, and ability to be concealed.

    My mom carries a S&W .45 but I don't like how bulky it is. I have a norinco m77b myself (9mm) and its a nice weight, size, and I know it'd stop me if I was mugging someone but maybe I'm just a nancy :p. plus you can cycle through rounds by pulling the trigger guard with your trigger finger so you can keep both hands in shooting position when you rack it.

    I prefer a revolver because there is no chance of a jam or failure. My current carry is the Taurus Judge Public Defender that is a 5 shot with the option of .45LC or a .410 shotgun shell which is what I choose. With the .410 the target accuracy is a much wider range.

    This is mine with the smaller shaved down hammer.

    I am considering getting my permit to carry.
    It is a process in NY but for various reasons over the past few years I believe I will be doing so in the near future.

    Got the Stainless Sig 40/357 (depending on the barrel of the day) but it is too big and bulky to carry/conceal. I've been looking for something more practical, but nothing has overwhelmed me enough yet to buy....and I'm in no hurry, so I haven't put a lot of time into it. Great comments/recommendations though stemming from the group...I'll be interested in reading people's responses.

    i open carry sometimes here in Virginia, planning on getting the concealed soon. I have a Xd-9 (9mm) its a little bulky for easy concealment, but it works great for open. the wife and I were looking at a kel-tec pf-9 for her on sunday. 7+1 with the short mag, plus you can get longer ones. not the best, but reasonably priced and reliable.

    IMHO, guns are like trucks to some extent, everyone likes different ones, for different reasons.
