    Welcome from South Carolina...Good luck and have fun in your journey...Train Train Train...
    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.

    Lots of good advice as always! My vite is for the S+W 442. It is an airweight J frame, that makes it light, and can still pack plenty of punch with +p ammo. Very easy to conceal, even if you do not go with the ankle rig. Some say there is a learning curve, but that seems true with most guns so take it as you see fit. I love mine and it is carried more often than any other gun for versatility and ease.

    My wife's choice was Ruger's LC9. It is very compact, shoots 9mm. It will fit most any place you want to carry. She has a custom leather inside the waist band holster which conceals very well. A small compact auto will carry and conceal much better than a revolver. They are lighter which is a benifit if you are carrying all day long. Also they usually have more rounds than a revolver.
    Good luck and let us know how thing turn out.

    Welcome to DefensiveCarry.com from Olympia, WA; in the Great Pacific Northwest!

    A small frame, 5 shot, 38 Special Revolver would fit the bill nicely. I would recommend a S&W® Mdl 36 or 637; or a Taurus Mdl 85. The S&W & Taurus® steel frame guns weigh about 21oz and the Airwight®/Ultra-Lite™ guns are approximately 15oz. I realize you prefer the gun to be light weight; just realize a steel frame gun will recoil A LOT LESS.

    Welcome aboard. When I ankle it is either a S&W snubby or a Ruger LC9.
