NutNFancy gives it great reviews on YouTube. And you can still purchase a few boxes of ammo and a holster for $500.

Used, though, might be the best idea for $500.
Your logic is sound in considering the total package of cc to be at $500.
If I were to look at that route I would go with the much more reliable and accurate Kahr CW9:

Kahr CW9 ................................................. $ 440
High Noon IWB Bare Asset Holster...................$ 24.99
Levi 1.5 inch belt -Plenty good for the weight...$ 9.99
box 25 Hornady Critical Defense round.............$ 22

Total...........$496.98
This is my set up...Just substitute a CW9


Of course it would face the opposite direction behind the belt ( wanted to show the full holster shot )

Does it need to be an autoloader?

What about a wheel gun?

Love that LCR. I've never fired it, never touched one, even. But the reviews are great and I'd love to get a revolver. Before I bought my first, the LCR was definitely at the top of my list. But now after carrying around at least 7, sometimes 16, rounds before reloading, just 5 feels underprepared.

I know that almost every real situation could be dealt with by even less than 5 rounds. I'm only talking my own psychology, here.

But the LCR is a GREAT option. And .38 special is nothing to sneeze at ballistically.

i shot the SW 638 airweight and i don't know i just didn't get the feel for it, although it is a very nice looking piece. and yeah that LCR is very nice looking.

I love my CW9, but remember that it only comes with 1 magazine. They cost $35-40. I paid $418 back in August.

Thanks Tommy... I'm not familiar with the 990L I believe it's on the same tier as S&W's Sigma. If so you can get a sigma for $100 less. I would stay away from the Glock 29 If I'm not mistaken they are 10mm. That would be a B***H trying to get ammo for.

Default Kahr PM 9

Doubt you'll stay under 500 but if your flexible up to 6 look at the Kahr PM9. Ultra thin, 6 plus 1 and an extended 7rnd back up mag, all tucked into a belly band rig which ran 15 bucks and beats the snot out of all my 80 dollar holsters.
You get 9mm power, which IMO is a minimum, and you can wear it all day without knowing it's there. Been carrying for 12 years and it's the best combination of price, comfort, firepower, and concealablity I've ever found. You could go with a Kel Tec or a Taurus for half the price but if you compare there triggers with the Kahr, you'll gladly wind up paying more for it.
Hope that helps.
