Sig 229 in 40. Desantis Gunhide holster. It will also be my duty weapon for security guard work when my card gets back from the state. I will carry it in a Gould and goodrich triple retention holster that looks similar to the safariland 070.

I'm considering getting the Taurus Millenium Pro PT 145. It's a small compact 45 cal. with stainless steel slide, barrel and polymer grip. It costs around 360 bucks too. But then I do want a 380 for a pocket pistol. What 380 do you guys recommend?

I carry a Sig P229 in 357 Sig. It's my personal preference and the pistol I feel most comfortable with.

Sig P229 usually or .32 Seecamp depending on the weather, clothing worn that day, etc. In winter under a heavy jacket I'll go with my HK USP .45. I traded my 2 Glocks off thru the years but am preparing to go shopping again for a compact and subcompact in the same caliber. Was thinking .357 Sig or 9mm. Had a 23 but never really liked the .40 cal.Will probably go with the .357 Sig since I already have the 229. Options are good!

Go with the Kel-Tec P3AT for the best value in a reliable pistol.......

Gotta keep legal north of the 49th for when I come home; at least until we get our property down south and I can store my wee guns down there.

There are as many suggestions as there are answers; I would love to see a compilation of numbers.

I have been playing with a G30 and G26 with ported barrels (make a huge difference in a defensive situation with multiple shots taken rapidly). I am also playing with larger Glocks, Sig P226, Walther P99 in 9mm and 40 cal., Ruger P345 (a favourite); and a BUL Ultra X Compact (a super favourite if I could get the reliability up there - think it is just the extractor needing adjustment). My all time favourite is the HK P7PSP and P7M8 squeeze cockers as I can carry with one in the tube and feel totally comfy with IWB carry anywhere anyhow. They just FEEL safe and comfy and are dead to nuts accurate with the fixed barrel and piston recoil system. I love them to bits except for the price.

Too many to choose from and I think if I was living stateside (soon) I would be carrying a Kahr miniature or a featherweight snubby. Just makes it so much easier to carry all the time. And I always carry an extra twenty rounds.\

1 more vote for the P3AT here, 4 rounds of DPX, 4 of GS (+1 Extension). I have not had an issue since the first break in session. But it was probably me that was broken in tbh. I love the little thing and would highly recommend it.

BTW, I did not have to fluff and buff. That is ancient history or reserved for when you are having problems only.

Usually have at least a Camillus Heat, Fenix P1, Keychain light and maybe an additional Blade and/or mags. G19 for those 'heavy' days.

But is there any way to lighten the trigger pull?

Seecamp LWS-380 most of the time. Rear pocket holster works well for me.

Too bad my G22 is so large. It just does range duty. But that's important too; isn't it?

The G22 can be carried in a IWB with comfort. I use a Galco summer comfort.

G23 IWB (small of back) when I walk the dog. Kahr PM9 (black diamond) pocket carry the rest of the time w/ spare mag. Getting an NAA Pug .22 mag as a BUG and a "when I can't carry anything else" piece.

Auto always!

Way back when I carried an "officially approved" revolver during my service in the FBI, half the office where I was assigned also carried 1911 variations as backups and off-duty weapons. Although these weapons were not approved at the time for official use, our feeling was that we'd worry about that later, as survival was our first concern. At that time, autos were just starting to come into acceptance, and of course, the infamous "miami shootout" turned the Bureau on its ear as to sidearm philosophy. I carried a revolver because I had to--I carried my Colt Combat Commander because I wanted to.

It all depends on what you get used to; I agree that the G22, G21, etc., can all be carried IWB with comfort... but one person's comfort is another's pain in the buttocks.

Personally, I am starting to lean towards a slightly larger semi auto; but keep it thin please. I love my HK p7's PSP and M8's. And I love my Walther P99s. I can hardly wait to get my hands on a Glock G30SF to try out. That should be awesome as I believe it is Glocks first offering with a thumb safety for concealed carry afficianados.

Too much choice. Spoiled for choice.

What holsters do you use for the p7, and how do you like them?

P7 and P7M8 holsters are radically different so be sure of what you are buying. If you check out Galco and most other major manufacturers they may have some holsters left for these models; that is where I bought mine for the most part; also, I had some custom holsters hammered up for me. Uncle Bill's did some nice holsters but there was some wait and lack of communication (ok... I will deal with them again). None that I use are particularly noteworthy excepting a shoulder rig that I picked up (think it is a Galco) that makes for a comfy carry when wearing the appropriate cover garment. That's the issue and in choosing a holster for the P7PSP and P7M8 (again different holsters due to the location of the mag release) and I have a box full of them.

I am working on which one I like best as with all of my holster/gun combinations. It also depends on their ultimate purpose and method of carry, of course.

Holsters. The most painful decision. The holster that I love is not usually the holster that you will like. Good luck.

PS BE SURE that you pick a holster designed for the right gun otherwise you are going to have a bugger of a time with your magazines popping out unexpectedly..... I tried one of my stock holsters on a P7M8 and wound up popping a magazine out almost into my wife's soup in the restaurant. The release is on the trigger guard.
