The only thing is I can't wear it at work since I'm a welder. Heat and electricity don't mix with bullets.

Have had the permit for 20 years but never carry. Just haven't found a little pocket gun I like enough to spend the money on yet!

HAHA, knowing you and seeing the title I thought that meant Certified Welders Permit or something.

You could open carry it on a sling on your back couldn't you? No one would ever **** with you then. Didn't you see the weatherman with nick cage? (pretty good movie actually)

Im pretty sure if i had a 12 gauge strapped across my back i wouldnt be allowed in any store. I bet you someone would "****" with me. The police would probably come and ask all sorts of questions. I could upgrade to a .40 but i believe the 9mm with HP's will stop any threat. Ive shot a .40 and didnt like the recoil. Carry the biggest caliber than you can handle right? 1 shot with a .22 is better than 5 missed shots with the .45 right?

I'm sure you can handle a .40 or .45, the gun makes all the difference. The deciding factor is how high the grip is relative to the barrel. Glock's have a great low barrel axis, HK USP and some others, not so much. The lower Glock barrel axis means less muzzle flip and less felt recoil. Try a Glock30SF, you might like it.

A .22 has only one use for human targets, close range suppressed terminations, very popular with clandestine folks.

Renton is King County, yes? I did my paperwork at the downtown courthouse a few years ago and that was a fairly smooth process, but they certainly took their sweet *** time issuing my permit. I received mine on the second to last day allowed by law.

G26/27 is a good choice for small-framed people. Sounds like you've done your research in shooting 9 vs 40. Nine is fine. Atlanta PD had more than a few one-shot stops using the Federal 9BPLE load (115gr +P+, sucker is moving) and that's an older design. Modern JHPs (Ranger T, Gold Dots, HST and the like) will work just fine.

I often carry a 37-2 when the weather is warm. Matte black finish, DAO with a factory bobbed hammer, forged parts, can handle +P, and no lawyer lock.

My 38-2 isn't rated for +P, so I shoot regular pressure out of it...but I still occasionally shoot a couple +P's to remind myself, and carry +P in it. It's not a range toy, so as long as I'm not shooting +P often enough to stretch the frame, I'm not concerned.

I carry a ppks and a p3at as my bug. I am very comfortable with .380 and know that shot placement with it will put down most people. I will be looking into a walther pps .40 for my next purchase.

Walther P99, 15 rnd mag, with golden sabers.

9mm is just fine, I won't have to wound my assailant to death.

So I don't need a 45. I'm that good

How do you like the P99? How does it conceal? I am at a toss up between the P99 and the PPS for my next pistol. I know I can hide the PPS on myself, the P99 I am not so sure about.
