They offered a lower price on a subscription so I took the bait. Regular price was $30.00 for six issues. In this economy, that was too high.

The 10mm (Ted Nugent's favorite) is slighty too big for conceal/carry for women or smaller people. I'm 5'6". I prefer not to criticize the 9mm round.

My favorite is the .40S&W for pistol (or .357mag for revolver). It's a modern handgun cartridge compared to the .45ACP. Like the .308 cartridge (7.62X51) compared to the .30-06, both are powerful and deadly.

The modern cartridges are smaller but equal in power compared to the older designs (.45ACP and .30-06). When choosing a handgun, you want the most powerful cartridge you can carry because handgun bullets are notoriously ineffective.

The .40S&W is a smaller 10mm, or the 10mm is a beefed up .40S&W.

When you select a compact .40S&W you want a design that is easy to disassemble and assemble. Glocks are the most popular pistol. I have a Ruger and it's a quality pistol.

The Ruger, in case you haven't heard, is one of the weapons of choice now available at http://www.outlawbidder.com . This is a penny auction site so you can bid one penny at a time and name your own price!
