    For me it would be the Ruger...

    I dont trust anything that starts with a "Tau" and ends in a "rus".

    Between those two, LCP.
    Walk quietly and carry a big stick.

    The best preventative medicine is superior fire power.

    Aside from negative responses, if the answer to any question is "Taurus" then the question was stupid.



    I have personally seen too many of them fail miserably.

    Can my answer be a Glock 19?

    Seriously, my first carry gun was an LCP. It now sits in the safe more often than not while my Glock or slim Sig ride on the hip.

    (I am assuming that you don't already have the bigger models, that was probably wrong. The LCP still goes into service when I am wearing a bathing suit or formal wear - and it is great for those kinds of uses where size matters)
