    I'd ask what line of work you're in... but I'm afraid. I can't remember the caliber of handgun (I want to say it was a S&W 500, .50 cal) I shot a little over a week ago, but it killed my hand. I really thought I had 'man hands'.. but after that, I'm thinkin' not so much.
    Fool me once, shame on you.
    Fool me twice....shame on me.

    I don't carry one, I just have access to handguns just in case of emergencies. If I had to carry one, I would have to shoot more often than that.

    I do have my own 9mm handgun at home (but again, just in case of emergencies).

    A S&W Model 500 would kill about anyone's hand.

    That's what I want for Christmas this year, by the way. Just so y'all know ...

    I actually had a good size bruise on the area between my thumb and forefinger in the meaty part of my hand. It clashed with my nail polish.

    .50 cal? what are you afraid of? Being mugged by a Rhino?

    For yourself, I'd say a small frame .38 revolver would be best. Decent enough calibre and they have a tendency not to jam. Plus if you need more than six shots, you are in serious bother.
    If you are talking about CCW you need to be able to conceal it. In order to do that you need to think about what you wear. And a large gun means a severe restriction on wardrobe choice.
    And forget about carrying it in your handbag. Ever try finding your keys quickly in one of those?

    I'd add that you should save your pennies for a box of frangibles (more expensive) if you are going to keep it loaded in the home. You can use cheaper rounds at the range during practice.

    But most importantly, don't trust anything you hear (even from the likes of me). Take a class in firearms safety and handling.
    Ask questions.

    Incorrect, the .38 is anemic, and you have the rest of your life to win a gunfight, therefore, one should not count on only being in less than a "serious bother"..


    .45 what I reccomend and what I run, anything less is a compromise.



    Personally, I carry either a full framed Kimber 1911, or a compact 1911, Though those require more maintenence than most people are ready for....

    HK usp series, para ord, etc, are all good. I run kimbers.

    Stay away from glocks. I hate glocks and make no apologies about it.





    If you are talking about CCW you need to be able to conceal it. In order to do that you need to think about what you wear. And a large gun means a severe restriction on wardrobe choice.

    I can conceal a full framed 1911 with a tac light under t-shirt and jeans.




    And forget about carrying it in your handbag. Ever try finding your keys quickly in one of those?

    There are specific handbags for this purpose.



    I'd add that you should save your pennies for a box of frangibles (more expensive) if you are going to keep it loaded in the home. You can use cheaper rounds at the range during practice.

    No.


    frangables suck. If you want to use something like that, Glazer saftey slugs, but even then, there will be times you might just want to shoot through that sheetrock.



    But most importantly, don't trust anything you hear (even from the likes of me). Take a class in firearms safety and handling.
    Ask questions.

    This is but step one. a "firearms saftey and handling" class does not teach you how to shoot, nor does it teach you how to fight with your handgun....



    TGND, look for classes by the likes of Randy Cain, and others that will teach you how to fight with a gun. far to many gunowners think slapping that CC on the counter and walking home with a gun is a defense strategy..... PM me and tell me where you are located and I can hook you up with a competant defense instructor.



    As a point of reference, and others can vouch, I have taught and trained both pistol and carbine CQB for years. I am an assistant instructor (very part time/volunteer) for a very well known weapons training company. We teach LEO, .mil, conractors, and civillians.....
