    Back when ... a Browning BDM 9mm. It was the first gun I had, it was what I intended to carry, and it was the most accurate thing I had ever fired to-date. No longer have that pistol, no.

    Beretta Nano.

    1: Because it was my first, and only, handgun. Bought it 3 weeks before the class.

    2: Yup, still have it and carry it daily.

    First time, a rented G19 9mm
    Second time, a Mustang II .380
    Third time-- to be determined in a few days or weeks.

    I used my S&W 1006 for the course. I still have it and enjoy shooting it, but have never carried it concealed.

    Astra A-75, .40 cal. At the time it was the only semi-auto I owned in a defensive caliber. I still have it, she resides in my nightstand now. If the need ever arose, I'd carry her again.

    My first handgun i owned was the one that i qualified with. It was a Beretta PX4 SC 9mm. I bought it before the class and now have passed it on to my wife who loves it. For CC my wife and I both have went to the LC9.

    I used a S&W 22a. It was cheap and it shoots darn good. All round but two rounds in the two center rings.

    I keep my S&W 340 M&P for CC. I know it's only 5 shots but its got the power, weight, and size that's perfect for me. Hopefully I won't need 15 shots if I am ever in a situation that requires the use of my pistol.

    I took the free course offered by the Cabell Co. WV Sheriff. WV law states you must fire a handgun as part of the course. The Sheriff supplied the .38 spl revolvers, we just had to pay for the ammunition and they used the Police range.

    Independent courses you can use any type handgun. Our permit states Pistol/Revolver License, so I can carry whatever I choose. Usually 9mm Smith & Wesson 39-2. Recently pack the Ruger LCP that my wife used to carry, until I got her the LCR .357 magnum that she loves. She also took the Sheriff course for her permit

    The permit in NC is pistol. Never said anything about a permit for a revolver. Is that something that is regulated in other states? Having to have a permit for both?

    I used my Les Baer “Stinger” 1911 CCO in .45ACP. I still have it and carry it occasionally.

    Most of the time now I’m either carrying a Walther PPS or a Walther PPQ. The PPS is a much lighter/slimmer package; the PPQ is also about the same size as the CCO, but lighter with twice the capacity. With either I no longer have to wear suspenders

    Sig Sauer P250 subcompact 9mm. Accurate, easy to shoot, reliable. First two round were in the black.

    Arkansas you specify revolver or what you qualified with on your license. Unrestricted let's you carry either / or.
