    Glock 30, and still is. In hindsight, I might have got a G36. The extra rounds in the 30 do get heavy.

    My first daily carry sidearm was a Model 1911A-1 made by Ithaca Gun Company in about 1944, issued to me in Vietnam. It always worked.

    The first gun to carry (that I did not really carry much except sometimes in a purse) was a S&W 38 Bodyguard in ss with a bobbed hammer.

    I started off and stuck with a Glock 19. I like it a lot, and don't have a lot of money in the budget right now or I'd try out a Ruger SP-101. Someday...

    S&W Model 19 w/2 1/2" bbl Sweet shooter but a bit heavy. Sometimes wish I had kept it, but it has a good home with my ex.

    My first CCW was a Charter Arms Undercover, 5 shot .38 spl., carried mostly in a ankle holster, sometimes on my belt, and sometimes just in a coat pocket. Carried it from 1975 to 1977 when I began carrying a Astra Constable. I found I couldn't shoot the small revolver worth a darn.

    I made the mistake of shooting some +P in the gun. It loosened up a bit too much. My fault... it wasn't made for +P ammo, but I shot it anyway.
