Ladies and Gents, I'm new to trying concealed carry. I'm pretty comfortable with guns but haven't really had one strapped to my side. I took the NRA CC course and have my carry license but am still looking for the "perfect" female carry firearm. I've tried several (both firing and just holding) but am still looking for my first carry weapon (I have a .32 but do not want to carry this; it's a historical piece). I'm interested in a semi-auto (no revolvers) - either a .40 or .45; nothing smaller in caliber. I do not want a plastic/polymer firearm. I don't necessarily like double action. Maybe I'll look for a red-dot laser site or maybe just some tritium dots. I prefer a lighter trigger pull, 3-4" barrel and high capacity mag. I'll most likely carry with HydroShock or an equivalent ammo. Physically, I'm on the small side (strong side carry, outside the waistband, likely kydex- no cross draws or fanny packs/purses). If you can provide any advice, I'd appreciate it. Keep shootin!
