Alright, I know that I been asking a question it seems like each 3-4 days I am looking at a carry gun, I have a BHP and a Nagant for now, both are fun little guns. I enjoy both, but I am now thinking of getting a CCW and then a carry gun, and unless it is the winter, The BHP is not going to be a good conceal weapon. I don't want to spend a ton of money, so lets say $500 is the limit, saving a little would help as that means i can buy more ammo! So here a few questions for those who have experience carrying. Option 1 - getting a ruger revolver, say a GP-100 or the SP. I DO like the DA/SA revolvers a lot, and they have the advantage of being good for SD (no racking and no safeties.) However I do know they are a bit heavy and large. Option 2 - getting a Makarov or another 9 x 18 guns. as I do like the whole former Eastern block guns (I have a Mosin, a Nagant revolver, and a CZ rifle out of the five guns I own). Also how good are the other nations guns in the 9x18 mak round? (FEG and the like). option 3 - something else. Decided that getting a CCW and a carry gun is more important then say, a Ar-15. The advantage of the Makarov and its ilk is that I could get one in September while the GP-100 would be October or November.
