I received my cc permit about 5 weeks ago and have just been using my P95 as a concealed truck gun. I haven't been carrying until I could find an actual carry gun. Well, I know some do carry the P95, but it's a little bulky for me to want to carry other than in the truck.
I had basically narrowed it down to a Kel Tec PF9, P11, Bersa UC9, Kel Tec P3AT or Ruger LCP.
Well I went to a local gunshow today and they didn't have any PF9's or LCP's. There were a handful of P11's, but if I got one of those I was looking for a hard chrome or at least parkerized version, but all they had were the blued ones. I saw a few for $299-$319 and one dealer had a blued version for $249, but the chamber cover looked to have rust on it. I also saw several Bersa UC9's for $349, but after looking them over deemed it bigger than what I was wanting. One of these dealers had some P3AT's, but were asking $329 for them . But then, tho and behold, I came across a table that had a parkerized P3AT with grey grip for $249. 15 minutes later I was walking away with it for $264 OTD.
I also nabbed a pocket holster and several boxes of 7.62x54R for my Mosin
I would say though that one of the most memorable parts of the day came while I was waiting for my background check to be processed. I was just browsing some tables when all of a sudden some idiot accidentally discharged an HK 308 across the room at one of the tables. Luckily the only thing he did right was have the gun pointing at the floor, which left a huge hole in the concrete and an arena full of folks stunned and just shaking their heads.
