After 40 years it time for conceal carry. Which gun
 
Ive been shooting big colts big smiths 22 targets and a baby eagle all basically too big for conceal carry in Houston climate. Been reading about Kahrs, LC9,LCR,smith body guard. Went to my local Gander Mountain to try em out. The one that felt the best including trigger pull was the LCR. Body Guard close second. I do want a DAO. I don't mind revolvers, but would rather have a little more firepower. Is there a dao smallish auto loader that I would like the trigger pull on in DAO?

Maybe an officer size 1911?

I carry a 4" Kimber in waistband, but I don't live in a humid climate

If you get the LCR in .357 how much more firepower do you need? Were you talking quantity or quality?

Seriously, my J frame Smiths are just as smooth and just as light as the LCR, but it takes some work to make them that way. Out of the box there is no comparison between the two.

I would get charter 357 SA/DA model without a ported barrel. If you can find a used one from the 70s even better. S&W used to be the best option but lately no frikin way. To many S&W guns are coming out that count on the grip to secure the handle frame. If you choose a DA only you are defeating the purpose of having revolver. Just as well get a glock.

When I referred to firepower I was talking more than 5 or 6 down the pipe. Dao because I don't want to be accused of shooting someone "accidentally" At home I keep the Python loaded with 38 wc nice hole no collateral.If i get a revolver for cc again it would have wc.

You might give the M&P Shield, Walther PPS and Springfield XDS a look. They are striker-fired, which isn't the same as DAO, but it takes more to fire one of those than a single action. They are slim and, being polymer-framed, they are light. The Shield and PPS are available in either 9mm or .40, and the XDS is a .45.

You could look at the Sig P250. If you are used to a DAO then I would recommend it. I think the pull is way to long but then again I prefer the DA/SA.

Yeah I was looking at the p250 sub compact looks great, though I think it's a toss up between Springfield xd 9mm

If you like a doa type trigger you will like a Kahr triggers for sure. Very smooth but with no stacking like revolvers have. I main go to is a cm9 but also have a cw9 but its not a pocket pistol

I carry a kel tec pf9 its doa 7 rounds and i put a belt clip right on it so i dont even need a holster it sits perfect.they arent the best name but its been reliable and accurate for me.
