Guns are used to kill intentionally.
Cars are not.
Only an idiot could not see the distinction.
Guns in the hands of law abiding citizens save lives. Guns in the hands of criminals are dangerous.

Why don't you concentrate on getting the guns out of the hands of criminals rather than taking them away from law abiding citizens?

Guns kill. That's all we need to know. Only God has the right to end a life.

Guns don't kill any more than bath tubs kill.

If guns kill, then bath tubs do too. Ban all bath tubs!

My gun sits in a locked case most of the time except when I take it out to get some practice. It has never once shot anyone. It would require hands and opposable thumbs in order to load, cock, and fire itself. Simply not physically possible for it to kill someone.
On a more positive note, I took my firearms training last weekend and will soon be applying for a CC permit.
Now I have to just shop for a smaller weapon. Maybe a Cobra 380 or a Ruger LCP? Any suggestions?

Go to Bills and fire this (You can rent it)

It will definitely make your Pee Pee tingle.

Mix up your loads. BB in one chamber, 45 LC in the next chamber.

BB good to 15 feet, slug good to 30 feet.

Titanium, Compact, and a little Trigger Control makes this a great CC Tool.

Congrats on taking the training. I have heard good things about both of the weapons you mention, but am not familiar with either.

I bet there are a few people here with the expertise to offer proper advice on a smaler weapon.

Where is that Sludge when you really need him, huh?

You really don't want them to get up after being shot OR be able to shrug it off like a 9mm is.

Sooo pick up one of these, it won't let you down:

Of course if you have time to plan a shot at a bad guy one of these WILL do the job:

I'd spend a little more money and get the Ruger. Or, you could spend a little more and get a Sig 229 in .40SW. It's still compact enough, and would be more dependable as a defensive weapon. After my father took the CCW course he bought the .380 Ruger LCP. Like most with the permit, he rarely carries.

I currently own a Ruger P89 and have had nothing but great results with it. But it is a little large and heavy for carry. I don't know if I will ever carry but it will be nice to be able to do so if I feel the need. It's also nice because it acts as a purchase permit for 5 years. I imagine I can find a way to try several models if I find the right gun club.

You can try out various handguns at Bill's Gunshop (Robbinsdale, Blaine, Hudson). I have a big Sig and would not attempt to carry it if I had a CCW permit. I just haven't felt the need to get one. The 'permit to purchase' is a good enough reason, if I were planning another purchase.

There have been a lot of stories in the news media lately where the reporters can't seem to understand the difference between permit to carry and permit to purchase.

S&W M&Ps are US made and are quality.

They can still be found. BTW, make sure it's a newer model that have safetys.

You are right. The M&P Shield would be a good conceal carry weapon. It's even smaller than their compact models but is also available in the .40 SW.

That is more in your realm actually. You enjoy going back and rating yourself and making supporting comments under other monikers.
