here are 3 pouplar backup for a side by side

The NAA .32acp loaded with Federal Hydra-shoks has been very dependable for myself for about 10 years. It's never ftf and that ammo can cause real damage. They're available in .380 nowadays, but I'm comfortable with what I got. They are stainless steel and heavier than the other plastic guns and are the perfect belly gun to be carried where ever your heart desires. I carry in my pocket using a DeSantis holster. A boot knife won't hurt either.
I ended up getting an SCCY CPX-2 for the time being. It had a price that i couldnt pass up. More than likely i will end up trading it for something else though.
Great gun for the money. I have seen several in my CCW Classes and they seem well made and shoot well.
