    In spades on that one.

    Well if you would choose to carry a cap and ball pistol I guess that is your call. Although I believe its pretty obvious I was referring to modern defensive firearms one would carry for personal protection. Granted the luger 45 did kind of throw it off subject a little. LOL

    Although I never owned one I always liked the Star PD .45. Light and compact.

    I got an old Rossi 38 spcl m685 3 inch bbl in nearly pristine condition for $225. Great little shooter. Easy to carry and conceal. Wife has an H&R 32 revolver. Again...cheap, good shooter, and easy to conceal. Then, of courses we do have our, as O'Rielly would say, heavy weapons. Only problem with the 32 is finding sw long. I get it online from a mexican manufacturer, talk about black powder!

    I'll add another vote for S&W K frames and the Ruger Six series

    HK P7 series, and the Colt Officers model .45.

    Luckily I have a p7M8 and a stainless Officers Enhanced I bought around '95 and had modified by Wilson Combat at that time. Two of my favorites then and now.

    It's not very concealable, but if I was going to open carry a discontinued handgun that's got a service history...for my money: A Mateba Unica autorevolver.

    Amazing a modern version of the Webly-Fosbery Semi-Auto revolver.

    That is pretty amazing. I'm not a firearms history buff, I didn't realize there was a precursor to the Mateba's auto-revolver design. Doesn't have the lowered bore of the Mateba, but it does predate it a bit :P

    Doubt I could afford one if I could find it though. I could get a Unica though, if one came up, which is a big reason I favor it for a discontinued defense handgun.

    Smith and Wesson/Walther P99...SA/DA and decocking striker with decent capacity. Never thought it was possible, not sure why it was discontinued.

    G'vening ccw9mm: That was a very iteresting pistol, only two of the .45 Lugers were ever made . This was for the competitive Military tests for a replacement for the Single action Colts and S&W's in the early 1900's..

    They originally had the 6.5 & 9 mm pistols first, which were turned down as lacking stopping power for fanatical natives, specifically the Moros in the Philippines..

    Either of them are prob worth in the $1,000,000 class today.
