    I have a C&R so I was looking at what would be good to conceal carry. I really like the look of the Walther P38, and I found a place that sell russian captures for $509 each. I was also looking at CZ52's, but I read that they are single action...you have to cock the hammer after inserting the magazine. That's kinda :hsugh:. Any other suggestions?

    Somebody on GT was talking about carrying a P38, and his biggest concern was snagging the front sight on the holster.. said it happened a little too often to him.

    I'd probably take the 52, as well, but aren't there other CZ variants eligible? Or FEG High Power clones?

    Desert Eagle, gold with the tiger stripes. Pure ballin'.

    G19 all the way. Or even smaller like G26.
    I got a Para Warthog, we'll see how that goes.

    Funny thing is, you have to rack the slide to chamber a round anyways..

    For a carry weapon I would use .40 S&W or a .45 ACP. None of the pussy 9mm shit. If I have some cracked out druggie trying to bust my ass or cause gross bodily harm it will take more than just a few 9mm holes to stop them.

    I was going to use my Glock 26 as a carry weapon but decided against it. I will most likely carry my Para Carry 12 or some future handgun purchase. Until then, there are a few more rifles that I want. :big grin:

    Your Carry 12 should be perfectly fine for CCW, once we break that bitch in. :coolugh:

    Yeah, I squeezed off another 50 rounds through it. I still pull to the right, but 4 out of 10 had a very tight grouping next to the bullseye. The other 6 rounds were tightly grouped just down and to the right of the bullseye.

    Might just take some practice. And some good hand strengthening exercises.
    Maybe you're unlocking your wrist too soon. If not, most flinching/pulling can be overcome.

    I know with each new gun I shoot, I get really excited and shoot like shit the first few times at the range.
    That's probably not your problem though :mamoru: just mine.
