I just got my CCW permit in the mail on friday and I have two guns on order with S&W.
I have chosen the Bodyguard auto in .380 for an ankle carry and for a waist band I went with the M&P shield in .40cal
It might be a little more gun that I need but I liked the idea of the stopping power of the .40.
I am going to work on an entire article about weapon choice as well as holster choice in the next few weeks. As soon as I get it published I will try and post it up here.

The Bodyguard is quite compact and is easy to conceal on the ankle. The shield is a really nice slim auto that is less than 1" wide so it is easy to eliminating any "printing" on my clothing as well as fitting tightly to my body. The extended magazine has a nice comfortable grip that I can get my big paws around and hold real nice.

Now if I could just get S&W to jump on the MFG. I will be happy.

loved the LC9 just a little bit to small for a big hand,finally went with the P95 , better fit with a 15 round capcity.conceals nice with a back or side holster.

Carry whatever you are comfortable and proficient with. A .380, 9mm, .40, 45 none are any good without proficiency.

I just finished my hours. Now the paper work. While I was Article 11 I checked out the S&W M&P SHIELD 9mm. It is very comfortable for me and priced not to bad at Cabelas ($409.00).

I've always been partial to Berrettas. I like the 84 Cheetah, but they are no longer in production and are chambered in 380ACP.

Beretta currently makes a gun called the Tomcat, great little gun although it is a little heavy for the size.

It's inherently safer to load and unload as the barrel "pops up" to make things easier.

Just finished my 8hr NRA Pistol class. There were a lot of semi, CZ Sig Sauer, Taurus. Ill tell ya the gun the really liked as the 38 special taurus revolver. So many less fail points.

If you are looking for an inside the waistband holster, I would definitely recommend the holster made by Alien Gear. It is just like the "king tuck" made by Cross Breed, but it's about 1/2 the price. Lifetime warranty, comfortable, and you can even completely tuck a shirt in around your firearm.

I carry M&P Shield 9. I have a few holsters for it. Mostly I use a Fobus paddle. Inside the waistband I have a carbon fiber holster. Its easier to draw and re-holster than a soft or leather holster. Last I have a molded leather holster with belt loops. IMO If you carry all the time your going to want more than 1 option.
Check out Ebay as they have a 100 different types to look at and buy.

4season I refer to those locations as "Victim Zones" Further I don't like going into stores with the "No Gun" stickers as I feel its a billboard saying Criminals Welcome. Sorry don't mean to hijack thread.
