With Wisconsin finally passing concealed carry, I plan on going through and getting a permit. I never figured we'd get it passed so I have never looked into guns ideal for it, or how I would carry. So since I have about 4 months before I can even apply, Im researching my best options for pistols and carry. Im looking for opinions, facts, what works for you.... I know no 2 people like the same thing when it comes to CC, but when I get to purchasing these things it would help to know what others like. Ill give you all a little info on me that may help with suggestions for every aspect of concealed carrying. Im a big guy at 6'5" 250lbs, so as long as the pistol is concealable I can handle just about anything. If my Ruger Super Blackhawk .44 magnum that I use deer hunting wasnt so big Id consider that, but I do know even if I could conceal it the weight alone would get to me after a while. Im not looking for the top of the line most expense pistol, but something thats affordable and reliable. And on the carrying how you carry in the summer and the winter.
Sorry for the long winded questions, just trying to figure out as much as I can before I purchase anything. I like being very informed by people with real world experience, rather than trusting a gun salesman that has probable never tried half of the stuff in inventory.
