      I just applied for my CCW. I own a lady Smith revolver, a model 60 S&W 3" without lock and one with the lock. My preference though is the Para Carry 6.45 or the 7.45 with the 3.5' barrel. I tend to lean toward the all steel construction over the polymer frames. I also ordered a beretta .22 Cheta and a Kahr MK.40 today. I enjoy guns even if I'm not carrying so a variety is what pleases me. I mainly handload the center fire rounds for practice and I never shoot someone elses handloads. I inspect for lead after each outing and clean accordingly. I use commercial rounds in any gun I intend to carry. I would also like to note that I never load lead rounds over 800fps as that seems to be where serious leading starts. So far after many years of handloading I've been very lucky with only one blown primer and that was in a remington .243 bolt action and recycled brass. These .243 loads were hot loads that I had been shooting in my Browining single shot but the bolt action couldn't handle the same load even though the load was on the chart as safe for either rifle. My error, in this case I didn't work the load up for the bolt action as I should have. In stead I just trusted that if one gun would handle it both would. The experienced handloader will always work up a specific load/loads for each particular gun he loads for. I took a short cut and was reminded why caution is never out of order when handloading.

      Back to CCW. I like the LDA Para Trigger over all others. It's smooth, lets you know when it's about ready to trip and I tend to push off to the left with my trigger pulls so I shoot the LDA much better than any others I've tried.

      This is my first post so I hope I haven't put everyone to sleep.

      I now carry only 9 mm.

      It depends on where I'm going and what I'm wearing.

      Either Ruger LC9



      or Sig P239

      the reason i carry such a small cal. gus is if someone is doing somthing that is a big enough threat to me or my girlfriend that i have to use my gun i think it will hurt enough to make them stop or if i have to kill them i think 10 .22 cci stingers will do the trick, but shooting would be my absolute last resort like my car wont start last resort lol

      I'm curious to know the break-down of ppl who are LE vs CCW for everyday carry or off-duty because here in California, the standard caliber is .40. I have been to several gun stores lately and they all say they sell .40 calibers 10 to 1 vs 9mm.
      sir this is strictly hearsay from my own research on same subject,but ccw people are buying the .40 for several reasons.match up to L.E.in case they shoot some one the persecutor/prosecutor can't say your shooting this sexed up bullet that rapes,maims,robs,and eats your lunch before killing you if L.E.is shooting same rd.(we've all seen them do it justice has nothing to do with the law sadly)and my L.E.friends,shoot mostly what there agency shoots and that ammo is plentiful and is dis-counted to them or given outright to train off-duty equipment use some have smarter chiefs,and most L.E. i know are very frugal,plus the.40 i feel is a compromise rd[is that heresy he speaks]me i'm leaning toward a p229sig in .40 and buying a.357sig barrel which has similar properties of .38 super flat,fast,hard hitting rd a sort of 2 for 1 should tickle my frugal nature since.40 is cheaper to shoot to practice,and no mag difference .just my observation is all ,cause free advice is worth what you pay for it.now i mostly shoot and carry.45,time for new ideas or i just want a new gun

      That's why I prefer to carry some other compact .45, instead of the Star, when I need serious social protection.
      I use the Star PD when nothing else is available. I do wish that there were some way of testing the sear and hammer-notch, short of destruction.
      check with caspian or maybe llama for the sears i had a extractor from caspian re-worked/installed by smith few yrs ago it's out lasted the smith who passed away last year hard to find a good smith.

      As far as I know, only Star PD sears and hammers will fit into Star PD pistols.
      However, Numrich Arms (Gun Parts Corp.) have spares of both in stock.

      I carry my LCP .380. I'm a small guy. Even my Taurus PT 145 is kinda big on me. What I'm waiting for is a compact 9mm in the same size and that will be sub $600 to come out.

      @ DjSaneR
      You ought to go look / handle the Ruger LC9



      It's a 9 mm that's about 20% larger than your LCP

      And a great gun
