EDIT TO ADD:: All future readers of this post, disregard the "(note: concealed/open carry is not an option in my State)" part of the following post.
In other words - I'm looking towards your opinion regarding your recommended "carry" weapons (be the concealed or open); or otherwise.
In any case, here's the original post ------
... that means YOU AD! And LawDog! and... all others :-)
My permit has finally arrived.
Here's the deal -- I'm having a SUPER hard time picking out what I'd like to own (note: concealed/open carry is not an option in my State).
I'm looking for something self-defense-ish (but not limited to). I've shot/tried the following -
* S&W 14 6" barrel 38 special
* S & W M&P (both the 9mm and 0.45 - I prefer the 9... didn't like 45 wasn't too comfortable)
* Colt M1911
* Springfield XD
* Sig Sauer P220 (have to re-evaluate this one)
* Glock 19
That's about it... I have a 90 day window period.
Please recommend your favorites and why.
Oh and anyone who can recommend a place I can get my hands on a good M1 Garand, please let me know!
