Hi. I'm from Memphis, TN. Currently waiting for my CCW permit to be processed by the state. I was a Reserve Sheriff's Deputy a few years ago, but most of my experience was in full uniform and very little plainclothes detail. My current handgun is a Rock Island Armory 1911. Something tells me that when the heat and humidity start to rise around here my 1911 will become somewhat of a burden to tote. I stumbled across this site while researching an alternative gun, something I can use for my everyday carry, a snubbie, or small auto like Kel-Tec. For me, like most people, my budget will be a huge consideration. I may have to consider trading or selling my .45 to buy whatever I decide to carry ccw. I am looking forwarding to reading threads from folks who have experience carrying concealed and the feedback you guys may offer.

Expecting a carjacker or rapist or drug pusher to care that his possession or use of a gun is unlawful is like expecting a terrorist to care that his car bomb is taking up two parking spaces.-Joseph T. Chew

When you’re wounded and left on Afghanistan’s plains,
And the women come out to cut up what remains,
Just roll to your rifle and blow out your brains,
And go to your God like a soldier.

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.

If loose gun laws are good for criminals why do criminals support gun control?

Welcome from up I-40 a short ways....Arlington. If I were you, I would look into moving out here as fast as you can because it is the best place to live in Shelby County. Almost no crime and lots of people who open carry. The heat and humidity don't really matter too much when you open carry.
PM me some time and maybe we can meet up and go shooting at RangeUSA!
