    I carry my M&P Shield 40 or my 3.8' compact XDM. Both have TruGlo sights. The TrueGlo's make a huge difference. I carry where ever I can. I live in Illinois and I am a correctional officer. I didn't have to test for my CCL and got the license in 90 days. It sucks that my license isn't reciprocated in the surrounding states but we don't honor states around us either. Stupid Illinois.

    I do have a LCP 380 if I want something less profile in winter and
    a Ordnance 1911 A1 for those winter time carries when I want something with more punch!
    One of the only reason's I bought my LCP was for the conceal-ability. I need to get a laser for it, because I think if I shot it enough to get accurate at 10+ yards with it, I'd go broke.

    Those are two of the guns I have on my want list. A snub nosed .38 Special is something I've always wanted. I think any self respecting gun person should have at least one 1911 in their collection. I will have one eventually!

    I kind of wish I would've gotten the .40 in the Shield, but went with the 9mm for ammo availability. I plan on getting some upgraded night sights eventually, but the M&P's are almost perfect from the factory IMO.

    Nah.... when I want "hogleg" I wear the full size 1911 with the 5" bbl. That thing is a hoss... but accurate as shit. I actually bought that Taurus to flip. Paid $250 for it, in the box, a holster and 150rds of ammo. Realized that fully loaded with 12+1 it's a lb lighter than the 1911 and smaller/easier to conceal. grip angle is similar to the 1911 so it points well. after about 200 rds the trigger got infinitely better and I just bought a better holster and kept it.

    This was the haul a while back from one of the gunshows where I bought some stuffs:

    I got my M85 brand new for $260 on GunBroker shipped.

    Just remember the LCP is meant for close range.....the average self defense shooting takes place at 7 yards or less.

    I love my 1911. It was the first pistol I qualified on in the service before going to the M9.

    Heck here in WA state just filled out form, got finger printed for FBI and had mine within 30 days.
    Of course I had Top Secret clearance in Military for my whole 20 years, so that could of helped with time.

    And only $55 to boot.
