good carry gun?

I'm plannin' on hitting the next gun show. Looking for a good carry gun. I need an every day carry gun. Was thinkin' about a hammerless ultralight s&w or similar Taurus. Prolly in a 38. I want something I can just put in my pants pocket every morning like I do my pocketknife. I know some will say that is not big enough, but if I get a heavier higher caliber gun I won't carry it as much. I already have a springfield armory xd sub compact I carry when I go into San Antonio but I want something more comfortable. Any ideas? What do you carry?

01 Dodge 3500 24v
Silencer ring MIA, BHAF, straight piped lots more to come
old truck......02 F250 4wd DP,BTS,BD,AFE...... :burnout

Well I just bought me a Taurus 24/7 40 cal. Taurus International Manufacturing Inc that I carry in my truck, it stays right below my cup holders in the front compartment of my console. I love this pistol, I'm 6'2" tall and weigh 300#'s, it fits my hand great I really like it.

I carry a 469 or 669 S&W 9mm.

What your thinking about getting would be a good gun to carry.

I carry a 40 cal. Ruger P95. I know it is a big frame gun and kinda hard to conceal. But for right now it works. I am looking at the new S&W MP 40.

First off..NICE BUCK!!!
I carry a S&W .38 hammerless "light frame" fits very comfortable in my pocket and you can't tell it's there. I do not carry it for combat, just self protection. Enough combat in my military days... when I always carried my 1911 .45.

Again.. NICE BUCK!! what did it score?

I keep a S&W Sigma 40 under my seat in my truck. It's clipped to the seat frame so it stays nice. It's not real big, but you wouldn't want it in your pocket either. Also have a HK USP 9 compact. It has a hammer, but not real big like most. That would be my choice for carry, but again, maybe not in your pocket. Ankle would work nice though

I carry a Magnum research baby eagle 9mm, really like the gun, not on me at all times though, if it were, Id probably get a smaller gun.
