In case you're considering small, light and comfortable with medium-capacity, here's my EDC: Ruger LCP 380 w/ProMag 10 rd. (10+1) in Uncle Mike's 36...

A good compromise may be a double action only semi-auto. You have options for magazine sizes with some pistols like Alchemist's LCP. Most DAO pistols don't have a safety to deal with and they reload easier than revolvers. Good examples are Kahr CW-9, PM-9, and P-380, Keltec PF9, P11, and P3AT, and Ruger LCP.

Not a masters, but there definitely is a little more to a semi-auto than a revolver, especially the smaller semi-autos.

Semi-Autos jam. Revolvers don't.

Clearing a semi-auto handgun jam efficiently and quickly takes practice and range time.

My favs;

A 1.5" bull-hide carry belt by Jim Speidel is the best bang for your buck, IMHO! I own one and about to order my second. (Different color)

Gun Belts by The Belt Man

"Holsters = Crossbreed, once you go ugly, you'll never go back!" cane

SuperTuck Deluxe

As far as the gun to go in the carry rig, find "Your" gun through exhaustive search and research.

Of course, a Colt model O4860XSE Lightweight Commander would be my choice.
Just got off the THEBELTMAN site will measure and order soon. NICE BELTS

So does reloading a revolver as opposed to a semi-auto.

Both platforms have their pros and cons.... enjoy your choice.

When it comes to ccw, I don't think you need 15 rounds of ammunition.

6 rounds will do just fine. Most sub compact semi autos only hold about 6 rounds anyway.
