I can comfortably carry my new toy that I got yesterday at Knob Creek.  Its a CZ75b, and its heavy, but its also super slim.

After shopping around I've narrowed it down to the Ruger LCP and the Sig P238.

I'm thinking I'll go with the Sig even though its out of my price range.  I've been reading a lot that the LCP is nice but that the Sig is a lot better.

I shoot both of those often (my brother in law has the lcp, and my father in law the Sig).
 
The sig sticks out of your back pocket with that little bump out the back... Not good for rear pocket carry as it wouldn't be concealed... My father in law carries his daily on his leg. Works great, bigger caliper than the LCP so more stopping power.
 
But, I like the LCP better personally, as it is light like my Kel tec.
 
I took a bunch of guns out to the range yesterday and shot for a few hours. Great time.
They tremble at my name...

Why a pocket gun. Do you need a deep concealed carry gun?

Sure, a big caliper = more stopping power, but are they as big as say, a Bugatti Veyron's ?

I fired a Glock 19 yesterday. I take back what I said about Glock triggers, this one was just fine for me.

It was my 5th time shooting pistols, and the shots went right where I wanted them to go. It's compact and comfortable too.

If I had the money to seriously consider buying a firearm, I would hit the range a few more times to try it out and likely buy it.

I live in Kentucky, gonna start going annually.  When they fired up the mini-guns, oh lawdy...

Also, to the stopping power argument... ballistic performance is secondary to shot placement in most major calibers.

I haven't heard a mini-gun let off but I was indoors with a belt fed 7.62 the other day. THAT was a learning experience.

I love my minotaur. I bought mine before they switched over to blade hide though. But I could care less, people aren't suppose to see it right? Tongue
