    If one were to conceal carry, what would be your gun of choice?
    My friend is just wondering. :)

    Right now, I'm carrying a Taurus PT111 9mm

    Nice, small, light. Though I think might pick up the PT145 .45 instead.

    for me, the glock 19 is my ideal concealed carry pistol. 15 rounds in an un-neutered mag, 17 with the mag extension. it's small enough to conceal easily with most shirts and pants, and light enough so as not to become cumbersome. it's also debatably the most reliable pistol in the world. it hits minute of man, so if you practice with it, it's accurate enough, and even if you don't choose 9mm, that sized frame is the one i'd pick.

    my next choice would be a sig p228.

    Glock 27/26

    Or for those hard to hide places:
    Kel-tec P32 (P3-AT when i get one) or a Seecamp 32 (or 380 if it ever comes out)

    I like the Glock 17 during cooler weather. The PPK is my choice during hot weather, but I wish it was lighter.

    Carrying in Cali is damn near impossible... Where is your buddy? And how is he going to get the permit? just out of curiousity really...

    I would carry a CAR-15.... (hey! at least its not an AR-15)! :p

    I have been looking at the new "mini-Glocks" and if money werent an option, I really like the new LDAs.

    I carry a Ruger p89. i wish i would have thought it about it more before I bought it though. I love the gun, great accuracy and fun to shoot and clean. But it's too big and heavy. When I'm driving for a long time the feeling of it digging into my hip is so annoying, and if i'm not wearing it at just the right angle it will bruise my hip.

    my friend just bought a used glock, 9mm, can't remember the model, but it's nice and light and little. i would have gone for that one if i could do it over again. i'll be picking up a glock in the next week or 2.

    hmm, that doesnt sound too smart. if he does shoot someone with it even in self-defense can't he get arrested?

    Glock 26 probably. However, I'd also consider a Sig P228/P229, Glock 19/32, or a Springfield XD.
