I carry a pointy wooden stick and a bad attitude...

The pointy wooden stick is all I can afford, the attitude just comes naturally...

I can take out wolves, bears and dinosaurs...

In all seriousness, I carry for capacity too...too much is never enough...

My wife, Daughter and I, all carry kel-tech 380's. They are small and weight hardly anything and I shoot them and make sure they are working right then clean them. We've never had any problems with them. At 20 ft. I can put one through your mid section.

I carry a Glock 19, capacity is the biggest reason i bought it, that and I didn't own a 9mm.

I carry a SIG P226 in 9MM because IMHO, it's the best service handgun made in the best service caliber available.

I carry an xdm compact 45acp. 13+1 and it makes big holes im very accurate and fast with it. Since in wisconsin we got concealed and open carry printing the gun isnt an issue. If printing is an issue ive got a colt new agent i carry on occasion. Very thin very light with 7+1 capacity of 45acp

CZ P-07 9MM or a XD-9. Both have high capacity and excellent accuracy. I tend to pick the CZ more than the XD though.
