The weapon that was invented, for concealment, is the small frame 38 snub nose, hidden hammer. You can have your hand on it, in your jacket pocket, sweat shirt, your wife can have her hand on it in her purse, and it fires. No slide to move, no hammer to catch. Most will shoot +P loads, which at close range are deadly as any. Everyone in my family, and immed. family all carry the same thing. I have heard a lot of opinions on other weapons, but the bottom line is that if the bad guy pulls aweapon on you, you don't have time to reach in a shoulder holster, hip holster, back holster. You want to reach for your wallet as instructed and shoot them. It is not just concealment and weapon dependability, it is the ability to fire without the bad guy knowing you are armed. Reaching for a weapon sort of gives it away, as does a big lump in your side, back, etc. This subject raises a lot of passion from people loyal to a specific weapon. But you must remember, different weapons were made for different purposes. The snub nose hidden hammer was made for concealment, for police detectives.

Either a Sig 232 in .380 or a 5 shot Smith 642. Never found a larger pistol that could cover well. I did like my Colt Government Model, but the weight bothered me, and I carry a pistol everyday at work, but in a belt holster. You have to have a comfortable carry pistol or you will find yourself leaving it in the truck or at home, which does nobody any good.

To small for me Duckbuster, I am going to shoot a 23 tomorrow those baby glocks are just to small for my hands. I know you can get the extended mags for them but that makes them about the same size as the 23.

Glock subcompacts are very easily concealed and you can always add a pinky extension. I have very big hands and the extension makes it a whole lot better. Here is a pic of my G-33 .357 SIG. Three plus one and a plus two extension mags that I use primarily at the range. I also use the Bonded Remington Golden Sabers as carry rounds.

I went and shot the 23 tonight, it felt pretty good, I am going to miss the accuracy of my Sig 229, but I will at least carry this with me. Guess accuracy is over rated when most self defense shots come so close. Thanks for all the help ya'll.
