Need New Gun Suggestions

Ladies and Gentlemen.... me and the gf hit some hard times a little while back (unexpected number 2 on the way) and the S&W MP40 was one of the things to go sadly. Barely broken in with 200 rounds through her. Well we are heading back towards awesometown and I'm looking for something new. Looking for something that is easy to carry and conceal. Not too pricey but still a good piece. I still have my .22s and 20 gauge for around the house and just fun but need something that can deal with home protection and such. I have my eye on a few but reaching out to see what everyone else is carrying. Why? Pros & Cons? Anything helps. My local shop can get me anything if they don't have it for some reason so suggest away.

Thanks.

Personally I carry a Ruger SP-101 revolver in .357, easy to conceal, packs a hell of a punch, shoots very comfortably, (my 130# gf likes it) you can use hot .357 mag rounds, .38+P, or .38 special, and IMHO revolvers are the safest guns to carry, as well as the most reliable.

The most cost effective reliable carry is a revolver. A used Smith, Ruger and even Taurus would be good to get you by. I would look at .38 or .357

I carry a springfield xd 40. Love love that gun. My wife has a taurus 357 revolver. I also like taurus' new line (forgot what they call them) of pistols. Nice stuff. I used to have, and wish I'd never gotten rid of it, a bersa thunder 45 sub compact. Could get that fun under 400 bones. Shot well. Had a external hammer for da/sa action. A safety on it. Easy to carry

Again... I say .357mag.... it's stronger and you can shoot all 3 types of ammo.

Practice with the cheaper .38sp, but can carry the .357mag or .38+P higher pressure/energy rounds.

BTW I've been known to carry my Super Redhawk in .44 mag as well. Never know whwen you're gonna cross a pissed off elephant.

I miss my mp40 but it was a pain to carry because of its size. So most of the time it would sit in the truck or in the house instead of being carried.

Was thinking about something in the 9mm size but thinking that will have the same issue to me about the size.

I was looking at the new(er) SW Bodyguard 380. Any thoughts or experience?

Daily carry is a Keltec PF-9- Small and lightweight, at least its 9mm...

Dress carry, lol, is a M&P9, M&P 40, or a springer trp 1911...

The best carry gun is one you actually carry..... doesn;t matter what it is, as long as you have it, and can use it well...
