    A gun is a mechanical device. That said, any gun has the ability to malfunction. I have personally had 4 Glocks malfunction. Not from limpwristing, believe me. One was from a poorly made firing pin. While instructing handgun classes some years ago, I have had about every brand of auto malfunction from time to time, mostly from limpwristing, but none are foolproof. I have come to carry only two for defense. A pre-redundant safetied, bottom of the line, Kimber Custom Classic with a few mods. The other, a highly modified Ruger bobbed hammer, sp101. Amoung other things, the action is finely polished, BUT I will leave the stock hammer springs installed for a good heavy strike on the firing pin. Have seen too many misfires with guns with light aftermarket springs installed; especially when using the hard cupped CCI primers. Bottom line: a new handgun needs to be used for a long while to prove itself to be reliable. If not, then fix the things that need fixed, or tweeked until it is reliable. THEN you have a good gun. Also, a sturdy revolver is my vote for anyone that does not shoot several thousand rounds a year in practice. The S&Ws are awful pretty, but too delicate on the insides for rough use for very long; with even the large framed guns. Have never shot a Ruger apart; in fact I use the same heavy hunting load in my little 2-1/4" SP101 as I do my 6" GP100; with 180 grain Cast bullets. This load would take a S&W apart right now. Good shootin!

    I'm in same boat Baldy. Carry S&W J-frame EDC with TN HCP. I have nightmares that I am caught with an auto with slide that won't close on clearing drill. Comes from a bad experience under real conditions (I'm only alive because I wasn't alone at the time). Having said that, I do have a Glock 23 (w/NY1 trigger spring) that I love to shoot. Drill is same as revolver, point, pull trigger, BANG! After I get a few hundred more rounds through it with no problems, I may carry it.

    Well said.

    I also am not voting because the choices, while great options, are nothing close to comprehensive. To illustrate, I have three different consealed carry options and none of them are listed in the poll. I suppose I'll just mention them here:

    -CZ P-01 9mm
    great all-round handgun with the best ergonomics I've encountered; this is my main carry piece because it is sized "just right"

    -HK P2000SK 40S&W
    while small and somewhat awkward in the hand, this is the best option I have for summer months and if needed, IWB carry

    -Sig P229 40S&W/357SIG
    a little on the heavy side, but 12 rounds of 357SIG is rather comforting; a nice fall/winter alternative to the CZ P-01

    Any gun can jam. My main carry is a Kahr K9. I've fired hundreds of rounds, mostly a variety of hollow points through it & it's been flawless. I just picked up a large quantity of 3 different 9mm defensive HP's. I will fire them in my various pistols. If a pistol has a failure & it is likely the gun, I won't trust that gun for defensive purposes any more. I'll probably sell it or just keep it in the safe. I'm not very forgiving.

    I own a P220 Compact and a P239/357Sig. These are 2 of my 4 carry pieces. Never had a FTF or FTE with either. 230gr Golden Sabers in the P220 and 125gr Speer Gold Dots in the P239.

    BG's never know what's rolllng around in that cylinder either. A .38spl plinker or a bilstering .357mag boomer. Either is a stopper in FMJ. Never, ever had a fail to fire and I drill like a madman with this thing.
    Stuffed in a Simply Rugged pancake it disapears under a light t-shirt.

    Killer combat focus shooting DA burner or 25yd SA eye-dotter.

    When the chips are REALLY down in ultra CQB I won't have to worry about it coming out of battery in a press-fire or jamming on a stovepipe.

    I love my lil 5-shot tank.



    (not shoved in holster all the way...was in a hurry snapping pics....)



    In the field? This one gets the call, housed in a Simply Rugged pancake as well and is hidden very well- not that fur and fangs cares about that. I also drill like a madman with this lil hunny and it is a BLAST with +P BB's etc. :






    All this talk about guns is makin' me a lil randy....I"m off to the range.

    I voted S&W M&P Compact. But I carry a Ruger SP101 .357MAG but it was not a choice.
