Easy----You NEED a Kahr PM380, it's the only catagory you do not have covered.
Let us know how it works
An ounce of lead is worth 200lbs of cop.

Call up CZ custom shop..get you a CZ 75 C with tactical nites , and trigger work..Hazel leather in medium brown. Call it a day.
Hummm... the list could be VERY long!
Practically speaking though, every CCWer should have at least one J Frame pocket gun!
ALWAYS carry! - NEVER tell!

Casting my vote for the J-Frame as well....
Sometimes in life you have to stand your ground. It's a hard lesson to learn and even most adults don't get it, but in the end only I can be responsible for my life. If faced with any type of adversity, only I can overcome it. Waiting for someone else to take responsibility is a long fruitless wait.
I gotta go with an AK, too... unless that is covered in your "hunting rifles" section...

Thanks for all the suggestions, I'm reading them and waiting for a lightbulb to go on. Feedback:
Budget: Up to $1,000, but don't tell SWMBO.
J frame: Doesn't do a lot for me, I carry my P7 deep concealed in a SmartCarry, don't care for pocket carry.
AR: Lots of fun to shoot but that gets spendy if you get carried away, I'm not overly worried about zombie hordes, and I have a 7mm-08 for a lighter caliber hunting rifle.
Glock: Will never happen, just plain don't like 'em.
Hunting pistol: Already covered with an Old Model Blackhawk with handloaded 300 grain JSP's.
1911: Intriguing, but was not impressed with their accuracy in the military and don't see one for EDC.
"Or maybe, you simply don't need anything right now.": Wait a minute, SWMBO, is that you???
"Step way out and get a Desert Eagle in .50ae caliber. And get it in one of those flashy finishes.": You are evil, sir. I like it.
I went and looked on GunBroker - I couldn't find one in brushed or matte stainless, plus its over my budget, plus I'd probably have to buy even more sofas.
Here are two somewhat more practical nominees:
1. An HK USPc in .40 that would match my duty weapon and enable me to get in more practice.
2. An 1861 Springfield reproduction because we went to a Civil War battle reenactment recently and they look like fun.
or.....the Desert Eagle.....in 50AE......must....stay sane and resist.....
Hokey religions and ancient weapons are no match for a good blaster at your side.
