    Welcome from South Carolina...
    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've been carrying since June. I've got two Smith & Wessons: a M&P Shield 9mm and a 638 revolver. I like them both. The 638 is easy to pocket carry and conceals easily in shorts & t-shirt. The Shield takes a bit more effort to conceal, but it is a lot more fun to shoot and has more ammo capacity than the 5-shot 638. I was lucky enough to be able to borrow a couple of guns and holsters from a friend; it was enormously helpful in deciding what I want without committing to purchasing. This forum has been great. Have fun learning and deciding.

    I absolutely love my snub .38 with the CrimsonTrace laser for CCW:

    The Smith & Wesson Model 642 Centennial Airweight Revolver This pistol is inexpensive, reliable, very easy to use and conceal.

    When I get home I'm going to get a similar pistol chambered for .357mag. I'll have 5 different rounds for this pistol:
    • .38cal and .357mag target loads for the range.
    • .38cal hydra-shock hollow point for carrying around town.
    • .357mag bird shot for home defense at night (mini shotgun ftw).
    • and .357mag flat-top slug for wild animals while out in the hills.

    Welcome from Fla, enjoy the forum! I use to carry a Glock 19 which is an excellent gun, I'm an old guy and love revolvers better then simi-auto's so, now I carry a Ruger SP101 357 3" barrel revolver. You have to go out and find a gun you like and make sure it feels good in your hand and if you can shoot one before you buy that would be good. Lot of great guns mentioned in the thread.

    Welcome from Wisconsin> I like to carry the smaller lighter types that are hidden easy. Like the Ruger LC9, Smith and Wesson 638 ( shrouded hammer airweight), I would rather shoot a larger pistol like a 1911 or H&K USP but if you are going to carry all the time I like the smaller ones. As the Weather gets colder I wll switch over to my Glocks and may even carry a 1911 once the jackets come out. But for summer my EDC is the Ruger
