    .22lr is the bare minimum for carry, you might be able to get away with .22 short. :dunno:

    .22 short compact guns are just too big and bulky, not to mention the recoil hurts my wrist.

    I like my cricket guns

    I feel where you're coming from. In a pinch a good hefty rubber band and a properly bent staple can get you out of a jam lickity split.

    I've carried that way before myself, the only thing I don't like is that you are forced to carry DAO because of the fucking dumbass manufacturers. :squint:

    Can we turn it into a "one is not worth carrying, the other is" type thread?

    Actually since 1 bullet can be lethal, more than 1 round is not carrying. I just chamber a round and drop the mag. The gun stays lighter and it can still kill.

    Carrying can often be overly cumbersome, and is seldom very comfortable. I just wear a smith and wesson tshirt, and a NRA cap. That should do plenty to scare off the unsavory characters.

    Don't forget that if you have a CCW'er badge, you can stop criminal acts and intimidate BG's
