    Thouse wood grips are really nice to by the way. Mine had a pachmyer on it. Still does. It's a -2 I over paid for it, just cause I really wanted it. I don't shoot it much cause it's old and I usually reach for the Ruger cause it's my work horse and i can get another easier and cheaper than the smith

    Glock 43.
    Would have got the Ruger LC9s, but already had a Glock 19 for the nightstand and thought it best to stay with same style for EDC.

    Ive resorted to carrying a little Ruger .380 LCP lately.. mostly out of comfort/convenience.. I can slip it into the front pocket of a pair of shorts or slacks and wear it anywhere without anyone noticing..

    and its light enough that it doesnt pull down my pajama pants when I leave the house to go shop at Wal-Mart :ROFLMAO::D:p:ROFLMAO:

    Way too much of that going on at Wal Mart already... Best excuse ever for carrying an LCP;)

    I love the P938 that I have. That thing can hide in almost any clothing style

    In warm weather I rock a Colt Detective Special w/hollow points plus a speed loader with snake shot. Not warm weather it's a Colt Commander in .45

    Nice. I always conceal my Glock 43 with a holster.

    The US Secret Service just decided that the Glock 19 suffices, and conceals well. Although I am a long-time 1911 shooter, I found the G19 a much better balance of size, capacity, weight, a grip that fits my hand, and reliability. There are so many choices, and selection depends so much on your preferences.

    There are many service-size pistols I prefer to the G's, all of them metal. I had an odd think happen long ago: Immediately after my war year I was quite ramped up about "the pistol," whatever that was at the moment. Suddenly, though, pistols became for me just a boring but worthwhile tool. Long guns, especial good skeet/birding guns and rifles took over. Eventually I switched from 1911s to a G30 lower/G36 slide Frankengun for carry, often a G36 for pocket carry (still), and lately a G19 MOS for CC holstered. No longer interested in staying current on various trigger-feel-and-weight items...or multiple system function checks and repairs...I went further G, adding a 10MM with BBore field cartridges. My "nightstand" item (really kept elsewhere) is a G21 with light/laser. I think your son, at least, would understand. My favorite pistol to shoot, however, is still my old S&W Model 41, which is very simple in every regard. No more pistols. Have too much else to think about and do.

    I've already outed myself as now prone to simple light reliable handguns, no longer feeling unsafe without a thumb safety. However, I still keep the G30/36 and especially the G21 for so-called nightstand use...because (am I alone on this?) I've had occasion over the decades to shoot both .45ACP and 9mm indoors in fairly small spaces, no ear pro, and I can say without hesitation that the .45ACP was much easier on the ears and eyes (muzzle blast and flash). I never found the recoil a problem in .45ACP because the "rate of recoil" is slower with the .45ACP cartridge, much higher for 9mm and 10mm. My subjective experience may differ from others'. Be interesting to know...
