My bride is employed again so Xmas is back on! She tells me " I know you want a carry pistol, and I can't pick it out. So just go get [b]whatever gun you want[/b] and I'll go get the leather jacket I want and that will be our big gift to each other!" Redhead, looks great, likes to shoot, big boobs... Sigh Merry Christmas to me! [beer]

You're already behind. I didn't know I was supposed to ask him if I could hate him first. [:D]

Had to gloat guys....sorry. The GREAT thing is her new job... NOW I have to figure out which carry gun? Let's see...KelTec 9mm, Glock 33 or 36, lightweight Springfield .45, Taurus 9 or .45, Walther PPK, Beretta .380? Any ideas?

WHAT?!?!?! You are setting your sights FAR TOO LOW my friend...unless your Springfield is the TRP Pro. I'd go with either a Les Baer or Ed Brown 1911...it doesn't matter which model from either of these two fine gunsmiths. Hell, I'd tell her I want a stainless Colt SAA 1st Generation in .45LC with a 4 5/8 barrel..."it's my WESTERN carry rig." Then stick with whatever you are presently carrying. If budget is somewhat an issue, buy an HK USP .45 or the Glock 36 you mentioned.

Damn...I am jealous! Walther P-99. Best damn carry pistol I've ever used. I often just stick it in my waistband on my hip. Because it is smooth with no protrusions like external safeties or mag releases, it can't be seen under my coat or big shirt and it doesn't cut into my fat hide! Quick grab too...one in the pipe and a full mag and its very safe too. When I extract it, I put the thumb on the rear top of the slide, fingers on the grip (NONE in the trigger guard!) and ease her on out. Slips out nice and neat. Did I say it shoots a damn sight straighter than I can shoot it? Congrats again... [;)]

Tailgate, I really need a lightweight carry. So, a 'true' 1911 is a bit large. Glocks...hmmmmm...can't get past the "no safety" configuration, and I won't by a BMW cause "It's the best!" (like everyone says about Glocks) ...it's a personal thing. Springfield makes some bad ass little .45's as does Kimber and they have larger mags than the 36.... Good dilemma to have..

I'm very happy with my Kimber Pro Carry. Commander sized, 28oz empty and the .45 ACP punch that the Frankford Arsenal custom designed to drop charging Moro tribesmen in their tracks --just in case that scenario ever comes up! [;D]

Try a Briley: [img]http://www.briley.com/images/fantom.jpg[/img] [url]www.briley.com[/url]

I am very pleased with my Kimber Pro CDP. I always say "That if you can not carry a .45 then get the Glock with the most rounds in the mag". Oops you said you were looking for smaller...How about the Kimber Ultra Ten .45caliber with a 10 shot mag?[:D] Tell your wife thanks for being such a "Great Christmas present giver"![<|:D>] Congrats!

Jadams, You bet! The new job for her is more exciting than the new pistol...oh what am I saying? Yes I am excited! Now I've got to choose.... That Briley is cool looking!

You metioned a 9mm Kel-Tec, thats what i carry mostly, small, very lightweight, high capacity (if you need more than 10+1 the take ANY s&w 59 sereis mags, i'v got a 30 rounder just for fun cost $15 bucks at a gun show.) shoots about 4" groups at 15 yards, and i'd trust my life to it to shoot everytime i pull the trigger. You can get factory night sights now too. I usually just carry it in the wasteband, its so light it hardly ever moves. Only downside to you is no saftey whatsoever, except the 9.5 Lb. trigger. It dosent bother me, i just don't keep a round in the chamber, i just pratice loading in my pull. I saw you mention that about the glock though. I also have the .40 caliber, just as good, just havent broken it in to carry yet, not much more recoil either, really none that i notice between the two. For $200-$250 best guns in the world in my opinoin. Try to find someone that has one so you can see how it shoots.

My 2 cents: I don’t like the Kel-Tec P11 although; you can argue that they are great for the price. If you favor that particular gun, try out the Kahr P9, Very similar in proportions but the Kahr has a much better trigger and feel than the KelTek. I have a problem buying a gun without a hammer, I know it is silly but I grew up 1911 through and through. I would never point someone towards a .380 although; I often carry one (P232) when I don't have the extra cover of a jacket or sweater. I would suggest the Colt Defender .45. It is reasonable priced when compared to the comparable Kimbers and much lighter than the Springfield ultra compact. I also favor the Sig P239 although it is slighter harder for me to conceal. I’m trying to talk my girlfriend into the Walther P99. She is not a regular shooter and fairs poorly with the compacts. Since she always carries a purse, why not take advantage of the concealment opportunity. I also am a big fan of the P99. With the smallest grip insert it fits her petit hand well and she handles it lethally. Plus, I get to borrow it:)

Try it in .40S&W. Butter smooth trigger, flawless action, great sight picture and relatively low recoil. You'll like it. [beer]
