This .22 isn't that bad if you ask me.

As for CC, how many rounds a week do you plan to shoot?
I find 9mm the cheapest mid size and best after 22 becomes boring.

btw, I shoot weekly and pistols range everything 22 to SW500. I carry 9mm, 40 and occasionally 45.

Where do you fall in the spectrum of "this is my first pistol" to "I shoot everything"?
Well it'll be my first pistol. I recently bought a rifle though.

Consider taking a basic firearms class at a range nearby. They provide everything to make you comfortable at shooting. At that point you know more about what works for you. Semi(automatic) or revolver, longer barrels, sights, and safety. "Everyone" I know that has taken a class came away very happy they did it.

My wife just started shooting in the last year. She loves her Beretta NEOS 22. (I like it too) It has been a very reliable gun, but is too big to conceal. She decided it's time to step it up and just ordered a 9mm SW M&P Pro Series.

I am sure there are a bunch of others that are excellent, but these are models I have personally shot and maintained.

Ruger Mark III shoots nice but is a pain to take apart and clean.
Beratta Neos
SW makes a 22 version M&P similar to their 9mm.

I'm guessing yes because of the cost of ammo. But still got to ask since I'm considering buying a second firearm soon.
Personally I would never buy a pistol in .22 LR. They are just to unreliable.

If you want a pistol in the .22 format, the only gun I would look at is the Keltec PMR-30. It shoost .22 WMR and is the only gun I've came across that is truly reliable.

I feel that 22 are good if you are first learning how to handle a gun. They do not have the recoil as bigger guns. I prefer the 9mm. I own a Beretta 92G & PX4, along with two S.W.38 Detective Specials plus a S&W Mdl. 67. Owning guns requires a lot of pracatice, training and safety.

I like a Glock. Its simple design is very reliable.
It is the one I bring to the door.

I'm sure the pizza delivery guys and salespeople enjoy you answering your door with that in hand.

They never see it. They are too focused on the guard dogs.

I smell fear...

Cool little gun but check out the Smith & Wesson Bodyguard 380 before you make your decision

My dad has one as a concealed carry.

It's a great gun and excellent shooting gun even out to 25 yards. Just don't make too many plans to go out shooting with it. The recoil will absolutely kill your hands and after 20 rounds you'll be done for the day, but than again so will any gun that small with a 380 round.

Look into an LC9, LCP and bodyguard are good but not a fan of .380 for defense. There are ALOT more options in 9m.m. ammo

I have an M1A scout/squad in black synthetic stock. The major differences between it and a SOCOM series are the scout/squad has an 18" barrel, synthetic or wooden stock, and only a tiny rail on top for an optic whereas the SOCOM I has a 16" barrel and the same small rail on top in synthetic stock. SOCOM II has a 16" barrel, cluster rail (basically a quad rail similar to what you see on AR15s), and a synthetic stock.

Who here has their Federal Firearms License and deals firearms over the Internet? I'm interested in obtaining an 01 FFL and starting an Internet firearms business. I had an 03 FFL before (C&R) but I let it drop dead.
