    Welcome...I'd carry something even if its a .32 or a 380, but I'd say go with a 9mm if you can. Ammo is more accessible, and there's a little more poop if needs be. You can still find a fairly small 9mms that's easy to conceal IMO.

    I know it's the right thing, I just can't shake that "feeling".
    Welcome to the forum!
    What's wrong with a Glock now?
    Carrying and getting the "creeps"? Seriously....what gives me the creeps is knowing that there are probably several people in this world right now that would kill me in an instant for A) the fun of it, B) my wallet, C) my vehicle, D) because I'm American, E) because I will defy them, etc............... Anytime you feel you're on the fence about feeling "creepy" about carrying......you just watch the news or hang around this forum. Remember......in someone's eyes....you're wanted, and marked. The rest is only a matter of time, and if you end your days without incident, then your life has either been short-lived, or you never go out in public. Nothing "creepy" about the will to survive in this world. If you think a homicidal maniac thinks killing is creepy, then you'd best think again. The will to kill someone who is willing and ready to do the same to you is something you might need to come to terms with as the reality comes to light each and every day. It's just simple survival, and co-existing in an ever increasingly evil world. You're on the good side.....remember?

    glad to have you, plenty of small 9mm are available, Kahr, Kel-tec, Taurus as well as revolvers. Lcp is good but if you are carrying IWB get at least a 9mm and stick the 380 in your pocket...

    Welcome from South Carolina...Ditto on your primary being a 9mm...Glock 26 or 19 preferably...LCP is a great lil pocket gun for those "other" times when you need something. JMHO
    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.
