This is from "What weapon do you conceal" You should read the entire post

I'm going to try to post pictures - - - All I have is an old flip phone so they might not be real clear.

First picture is the 3 firearms I have caried concealed for decades, Model 60 SS Chief's Special for about 35 to 40 years, BodyGuard 380 for about 3 years, and the Modeo 6906 that has been for the last few months.

It is 2# lighter than the 5906 but still very accurate and 12+1 fires single / double action.

Second picture shows the 6906 is about an inch shorter in both length and height than the 5906 and the frame is a light weight alloy although the barrel and slide are still SS

Third picture is of the 1911 that my father carried in North Africa in WWII and a cheap 22 cal that is fun to shoot.

Fourth picture is about 1/2 of the handguns but I have to go to work and that is all I can fit on the table right now.

Last picture is the 6906 in a Concealed Comfort holster that is about a year old

Who amongst us proclaims to be so darn accurate in a combat PD/HD situation as to assure a deadly hit? That can be done with ANY caliber with experience! .22 is still a awesome caliber!

I've got a Bersa Thunder .380 I really like. DA with a decocker and small enough to drop it in your pants pocket. There are a couple different finish options but I have the two tone model, black slide with satin frame. I paid 225 for it at lgs.

I have found three pistols that are small as far as size and I trust to carry on me because they have proven with me at the range to be accurate and malfunction free. These are my backup gun for my main carry pistol.

1) Colt mustang pocketlite 380
2) Kimber solo 9mm
3) Walther ppk/s 380

Thanks a ton everyone. From what I just read, the colt 380 pocketlite sounds perfect for me.
