9mm Mouse Guns are Best for Everyday Carry
I've been actively shooting for about a year, got my CCP, and have a acquired a few handguns -- Glock 19 being the smallest. The full size guns are great for range practice and recreational / target shooting. For carry, the Glock 19 is good in many situations, but it's not always ideal.
I had a conversation with a friend who made a good point... He was encouraging me to get a Ruger LCP, Kel Tec, or other similar sized 9mm -- which is what he and his wife carry. His points were as follows; 1) if a situation arises where you need the gun, it will be a close range and a very fast encounter, and 2) if the gun is not small and light then you won't have it with you in all situations. It seems like a very common sense approach that lends itself best to one of these guns. By the way, this guy really knows his weapons and has a military resume including being a green beret -- so I put a lot of stock in his opinion. He could carry anything he wants and he carrys an LCP.
What say you? And, if you're in this camp... what gun would you recommend?
