    Gun Selection

    I'm looking for CCW gun selection recommendations and would appreciate any opinions. I currently carry a .44 sp (SW 696) w/IWB holster but a bit bulky as I'm not a big guy I reload but find 9mm a bit tedious to load so i tend to stay away from them. I'm trying to strike a balance between ease to reload ammo, good power, and comfort to carry (size and weight). Thanks for any suggestions.

    Your best bet is to find someplace that rents guns and shoot as many as you can afford until you find what you like. Guns are like shoes everyone has a different preference and what works for one will be uncomfortable for another.
    When you have to shoot, shoot. Don't talk.

    When it comes to handguns, they are like clothes in the regard that they fit people correctly or not at all. Rifles on the other hand are close to being just as accurate if they don't fit as well as a handgun.

    Having a handgun that fits your hand helps tremendously with accuracy. Take the advice of the gentleman before me, and shoot/handle as many as you can to find the one(s) that work for you.

    + 1 for both of these

    M&P45c or a Glock 30. If you want to stick with a wheel gun, I would go with a Smith and Wesson model 19/66 with a 3 or 4 inch barrel.
    Glock: G22 .40 S&W and G23 .40 S&W Sig Sauer: P938 9mm Smith and Wesson: Model 437 .38 Spl, Model 65 357 Mag, and Sigma SW9VE 9mm
