What ya carry?

I'm not sure I'd go with the lazer sight unless it's really out of the way. Anything at all that might hang up on clothing or things in a purse would be detrimental. For the ,,,,work you'd be asking, your talking 8' to 10' and shooting at the center of the chest. Smooth and fast trumps great sights. If she really had to use it, she'd likely not have time to take aim, just point and shoot.

I carry either a Para-Ordinance P-12 with Winchester Rangers or a Glock 40 S&W with Rangers. On the hip in the pants.

Will do there cowgal. There are a few pawn shops around Syracuse, don't really know if they sell guns or not? There are a few gun shops around and that is where I do most of my shopping. And I agree with you 100% about buying guns unseen, not an option for me.

Don yeah just another gizmo to break. At the range she would be shooting at someone the muzzle blast from a 2 inch barrel would knock someone down even if she missed them.

Money is tight right now, we shall see.

What ya carry?

I currently carry a Sig Sauer p226 in 9mm with Crimson Trace lazer grips. My ammo of choice is the Corbon 115 gr +p. Due to arthritis and tendonitis, I have gone down in caliber from 45acp and .357 to the .40 and now the 9mm. I previously carried the S&W Model 640 in .357mag. Very nice carry gut but not fun to shoot with full power .357 loads. I have also carried the Sig P232 in .380. Another really nice gun but I prefer the greater stopping power of the 9mm over the .380. I went to the Crimson Trace lazer grips because my aging eyes do not see open sight very well any more.
I acquired the Sig P226 used. It was a State Police trade-in when the MSP went to the .40 cal. This particular gun had been carried by a desk sargent and looked like new.

I carry a 1911 with a extended magazine (10 rounds). Yes it’s big and heavy but I train with it and can shoot very well and have life or death confidence with it. The .45 rounds is also effective in hollow points and will stop the threat.
