In another thread (Handguns sub-forum), a poster asked everyone's opinion on their most important personal considerations for concealed-carry handgun selection. After four pages of that particular thread, I can see that (since presumably, most of us posting in this forum carry concealed weapons at least some of the time in some capacity, i.e., citizen or on the job), a distinct majority seems to indicate that size and weight are their most important considerations. With the reduction in size and weight comes the concurrent reduction in capacity. Many posters in the referenced thread state they are comfortable carry 5 to 8 shot handguns, e.g., J-frame revolvers or "micro" semi-automatics such as LCPs, etc. Even the 1911 guys who claim to carry full-size 1911s are limiting themselves to 8 or 9 rounds, max. Now, THR is not the only firearms forum where this subject comes up on a regular basis. I don't know what the numbers would indicate, but in every forum I routinely peruse, it sure seems as though the vast majority prefer small handguns for carry. So, what is the take-away here? Hey, we're all letting those in the anti-gun movement know that most of us are totally okay with limiting our handguns' capacity to less then 10 rounds. It's almost as though we're helping them make the case that "high-capacity" (what we know as standard capacity) handguns are not only not required for self-defense, most of those in the gun community don't want to carry them. Thoughts?
