Hi everyone! I'm new here, so I don't know much about the way the forums run. I may not even be posting this is in the correct place. Anyway, my question is this: I'm looking for a semi-auto that I can ankle carry. I don't want a little 50 cent piece type that the guys at the gun store here are trying to sell me. I've fired several guns in my life! They have this idea in their minds that I'm a female so I'm supposed to always carry a purse and always walk around in heels. That's just not the case for me. Nothing against ladies who are like that, it's just not for me. I love to hang out with the guys and go shooting, or hunting, fishing, whatever. My point is this. I want something that I can use for more than just PP. I'd like something that I can conceal AND take to the range when I want. I really like 9mm vs a 45. (My opinion only). Is there any certain brand or size that you think I should carry? Not looking to drop a grand on one either. I have a Hi-Point that I have never fired. It's brand new and after all the reviews I've read, AND the fact that I just don't like the looks or feel of it, I'm looking for something else. I'm just hoping that I can return it where I bought it less than a month ago.. Sorry for such a long post! Thanks for all your help.
