    What did you practice with before you got your ccl? There are a great many choices. Price of course comes to mind but also what feels comfortable in your hand? While I do have a couple of 9mm I have to say I love my taurus 38 special short barrel. Real easy to conceal for most people. The one I have is older.

    NAA minis and airweight snubs are a generally poor choice for a first gun.

    S&w 442, doesn't matter what size you are, can be pocket carried, easy to operate and is a quality gun. If you change your mind about carrying it you will not regret getting it.

    Well everyone, I ended up spending about 2 hours at the gun shop/range today. I came in with a lot of questions and was really open to suggestions by the staff and ended up leaving with a Ruger LCP. Well, technically I didn't leave with it due to the 48 hour hold time, but it will be mine in 2 days. I went in their thinking that I was going to get a NAA mini, but I really wanted to see the LCP, LCR, and LC9 in person. After looking at all of them, the LCP just really stood out to me. It felt perfect in my hand, especially for being left handed. After handling the LCP, I realized that I would not be comfortable shooting anything that was smaller in size. That is when I ruled out the NAA mini.

    This was in no way an impulse buy. I have always been interested in guns greatly in part to my old man being a LEO for 30 years. After Wisconsin started CC last year, that is when I began saving to get a gun that I wanted for my protection. My plan was to wait until I got my CCW permit before I purchased a gun and I did just that. I get to pick up the gun friday, but I will be doing plenty of practice before I decide to carry it.

    Thanks for all of your input!

    The LCP will do its job if you do yours. Good luck with your new pistol and be safe!

    I have a p3AT Kel tec, it is pretty decent 380
    and the Ruger LCR certainly looks good
    English is my second language, I have been told my use of it is harsh, apologies if this is the matter.

    At least 300 to 500 rounds, before you stuff it in your pocket. And practice just like you'll be using it. Don't bother with the 50ft bullseye targets. Get mind to muscle coordination. The rest will follow. Don't worry to much about the sights, point of aim is good. Remember, it's defense, not competition.

    You made a good choice! A little more gun will be so much easier to shoot well. The little NAAs are not cheap either! Ever the sub compact guns are hard for me to shoot well. I shoot a mid sized gun and am still able to pocket carry in the right pants. DR
