So, now that we got that out of the way, and people have vented about California and liberals, can someone put up a list of what they think are decent pocket guns that are on the California drop list? I can search all I want on the DOJ website, but I haven't a clue if the guns I come across are any good. I want a high quality pocket gun, that fits flat in my pocket and will go bang every time. I have a couple of different revolver, but thye are a bit too noticeable.
My post was intended as a bit of levity. Seriously though, CA DOJ sucks. Most of the guns that I could think of that might work, aren't on the list. I don't know a heck of a lot about pocket pistols, so I found the whole thing a bit annoying.
Beretta Tomcat, maybe? The Cheetah looks a bit large for a "pocket pistol," but it's certainly worth a look."
Bersa Thunder, some people love them, some hate them. There seems to be very little middle ground.
How about a baby Glock?
I love my S&W model 60 . If I get a concealed carry permit, I'd just carry 38 ammo in it, though. I was able to get this at a better price than a model 36, plus it's more versatile. I just didn't like the idea of sticking one of those little 380's without a safety in my pocket and I fired an air weight and didn't like it at all. Of course, if I did get a permit to carry, I might just carry a bigger firearm, but I just try to avoid being in situations now, where I would need to carry a firearm. Pepper spray works well if you get harassed by dogs and I carry a heavy walking stick on my walks. So it's a choice I have to make. I'd like to have a lot more training before I consider getting a permit and would really like to go through the rest of my life without ever having to use a gun in a self defense situation. I am getting too old to run, though, which would be one of my first choices to avoid a beating or being robbed, so carrying a handgun and being able to use it and make the right choices in a dangerous situation, is something I have to think about.
