There are a LOT of good handguns out there. I normally carry my Sig P228, with MagSafe ammo.

If I hit the Powerball today, I would be carrying the same GLOCK 19 tomorrow that I've been carrying for 6 years.

HK P7M13 or HK USP Compact 45.

I have a Glock 19, and it will be my carry gun if it was allowed in my state.

But if money was not an issue, I would get a P7M13.

Novak's full house custom 1911......

If money was no object, probably one of the Rock River 1911's. Either that or an older Sig 220 with a few enhancements. MJD

I've never shot any of those but I'd like to try a Glock 19 so I voted for that.

If money was no object I'd take an Auto Thompson SMG and figure out how to conceal it later.

That is the gun I want when I get my CCW
Link Posted: 3/9/2006 4:14:34 PM EDT
IMO money shouldn't be an issue when purchasing a CCW. Save your pennies until you can afford a reliable gun that fits you well. Your life and your family's life may depend on it.

BTW I carry a USP Tac or a USPc .45, depending on my attire.

True, but income is not the only thing that dictates how much money a person is willing to spend for a carry piece. While I can justify 5 or 6 hundred for a decent pistol, another person may only be able to justify 2 or 3 hundred, while another person an easily shell out 2 or 3 thousand for a weapon.

I consider $400.00 to be the starting point when it comes to buying a carry piece. The pistol is a up-or-down price choice from there. I've been a fan of Bill Laughridge's work for more than a decade, however, I cannot justify 2 thousand or more for a "tool". Can I afford it? Yes, I can spend the money for the pistol - can I justify it? No. With the exception of a couple of 'safe guns' for collection purposes only, the handgun(s) I choose to carry are only the ones I have faith in.

def G19

perfect sized weapon and is good for the range also which doubles a good practice with your concealed weapon,

on the second not e when CCW if you do need your firearm you want it to go band everytime whether dropped in mud of on pavement anything the Glock will always do that and thats is your primary concern, now you can pick one up cheap and they are light and hold 15 rounds what more could you want for a $350-500 investment dont be ooled the Glock is a top carry gun may not be quite as accuate as a $2000 custom ed brown or something but it goes bang every time and how ofeten would you have to shoot a bad guy at more then 10 yards anyway the glock will get the job done

Thanks for all of the suggestions guys.

Its my fault but I should have been more specific. I was thinking of "carry sized" pistols only. By "carry sized" I meant something with a 4" or shorter barrel and somewhere within reason of the other guns listed.

So...4" barrel or shorter and a price range UP TO $1000.

Thanks
