I suspect that I might have as diverse of a list of carry guns as anyone on the forum. In Ga, I could carry a handgun when I turned 18 (1978). I turned 18, broke farm boy with a desire to carry...first carry gun was a FIE Buffalo 22 mag single action. That changed to a Raven .25 auto within about a year. The Raven, while some consider to be junk, was actually a good shooter and totally reliable for the rounds I put through it...less than 200 in a couple of years. My first truly carry worthy firearm was a stainless, factory bobbed hammer Charter Bulldog in 1983. Since that time it has pretty much been respectable firearms. During those first 5yrs, there were other crappy guns...just can't remember them all.

I've only been shooting for a bit over 10 years and have never bought anything that I thought was a "sub-standard" firearm. On the other hand, I've never purchased anything that I would consider a super premium, like a Wilson Combat or a Korth, either. My Sig P229 Legion is as "exotic" as I own. Of course, for where I live, anything beyond a Taurus might be considered "exotic."

A 9MM MAY expand to .45 but a 45ACP will never shrink to 9MM.
Beretta 92FS, 4Ē Model 10 - too big!
Model 38 with .38 Special standard pressure - too weak!
Taurus TCP - too Taurus!

First, what do you mean by "Toted"?? I have never "toted". Second, what do you define as "unlikely"? Your list is not very inclusive. Third, what I really want is a light double-sided light saber.

None of my others are at all unusual. Mainly Glocks and a Colt.
