Nicely put, therewolf. The only difference in my thinking/experience is that my snubby just wields faster by a split second than my 5 and 6 inch barrel guns... so, the snubby it is for sd.

I would agree with Rick, I carry a S&W M&P 45 most of the time. When the weather is warm I carry a S&W 642 (J frame airweight). When I'm driving I put my pistol in the door pouch, more comfrontable for me and easier to access with a seat bealt on.

my three sd guns im proficient with all of them:

bersa thunder 380



colt new agent 45acp



colt series 70 45acp



right now wis can only legally open carry. ccw is coming very very very soon and choice of firearm for me will depend on clothing and what sort of ccw we get. im hoping for open carry and conceal carry which will let me carry my series 70 pretty much full time since printing or accidental showing wont be an issue

In closing thanks to all who viewed and replied. Now it's back to the range for lot's of practice and a couple of courses.

Thanks again

Good choice

I agree that the .38 snub is a reputable weapon however, I'd step up to a .357 snub & continue using .38 +P. It's good to know you can fire a spare caliber, especially one that can drop a bear. I'm referring to the ammo drought for those who don't remember.

Hey Spider, it's still good. CCW choice is personal. I prefer the extra size,

because I'm just not that fast, anyway. What I am is very alert.


You hear this HD gun this, HD gun that. Let's look at HD very carefully for

a second, did somebody say BREAK into my house? As in BREAK a door

or window molding or glass? I will beat them to death with the nearest blunt

object, they don't deserve to be shot.

Like I said, it's all very personal...

Hopefully you'll never suffer such a break in.. and hopefully if anybody does there is no firearm in the hand of the perp.
