I like to see what I'm doing. I'd actually like about a 30x but don't have the $$.

Since there seem to be some gun aficionados here, and recommendations on an affordable conceal carry/random target practice pistol? I've been looking for a Bersa 380...good size and only $260-ish brand new, but i'd kinda prefer a 9mm (i have a small collection of 9mm from when i lived at home and shot dad's guns)
a seecamp if you want small
www.seecamp.com
or one of hte keltec P3AT's.
Or a kahr P9 or P45.

I was hoping to find a gun trading forum, and I could use my paypal balance to fund the transaction.
paypal doesn't allow payment for firearms or related gear, so you'll find most sellers shun paypal.

Nor tobacco.

NEVER mention anything about either in any PayPal correspondences. Paypal has in the past and will in the future freeze your account if they even suspect it is being used for anything they do not "approve" of.

probably a good choice if you're concerned about a female pulling the slide, though you should teach her to hold the slide in one hand and push the the frame forward with the other, works best for folks with less hand strength.
