Pistols for "carry"

Postby gtk » Tue Feb 06, 2007 10:19 am

I would like to get a smaller pistol just "because". I want something that you could actually carry without being bulky..

Suggestions?

I was looking at this Kahr the other day in .40 .. Its pretty thin & not too big.

S&W J-Frame Airweight in .38 Special. You can get it in a hammerless version or with an external hammer. The revolver is going to shoot for five shots without a possiblity of jamming. I'll try to find a picture.

This is actually a .357, but could shoot the .38's too.

The auto is more fun to shoot. Do you have any self defense plans for the gun? If its a toy only get an auto...I'd even get a 9 probably...less recoil, cheaper ammo.

it would be a toy that would also serve as self-defense .. Your right, a small revolver would be the best for what i wnat it for.

i do wonder though, how bad the small kahr in .40 would kick ? my XD doesnt kick at all using 160 grain ammo..

It shouldn't be that bad...My Sig in .40 was nothing. The Kahr will definitely be a little worse, but I wouldn't go less than a .40; the 9mm, .380, and .32 ACP are all too puny for me in a defense role.

I would carry a 44 magnum because it is the most powerful handgun in the world and powerful enough to blow your head clean off. At least that is what Clint Eastwood says. :shock:

Greg this is the little Rossi that I bought a couple of months ago. Looks kinda rough, but is mechanically sound. It is a good carry size. The Rossi or Taurus are a much cheaper alternative to the pricey S&W

I Like the rossi...

You know what I wish they made? I wish they had a .22mag automatic pistol just to have for "fun". I love shooting my .22 mag rifle...

I have a Kimber SS .45 which is the most accurate pistol I have ever owned. Little heavy and big for full time carrying.

I bought my wife a Keltec 9MM and is compact, double action semi that is really accurate! Inexpensive also and hold sup great!


I purchased a makarov in stainless at the gun show for $185.00 it is a 9mm X 18 or 1 mm short of a standard 9.

I buy the ammo at the gun show for $6.00 per box and it is light and ultra compact and super accurate,

It is made exactly like the Walther PPK (James Bond pistol)

Inexpensive and loaded with hollow points is a deadly little weapon.
