I know there are some gun enthusiast on the board so let me ask. What would be a good compact semi auto. I would want to stay compact with something that has descent stopping power. I have looked at the Bersa .380 and the Taurus compact 9. I would like to stay under $400 as I am also looking for a 38 snub nose.

I don't want this to be an argument about gun rights or the such so if you don't have any good input please don't reply.

Are you planning on getting a permit to carry, or just keep it at home?

I have a S/W compact 9mm with pre-ban magazines that I love. I'm going to sell it though as I don't really carry very often anymore, and I have a S/W snubnose .38 that works well for occasional carry.

From my "I want to be just like Bridgman" series, it's obviously the middle one!

It will be a home defense piece, Il. does not allow CC. I like the Smith but from what I have seen it is above my price. Maybe I can find one used.

I would like a gun. But unfortunately I live in Calif., I think I would need a permit just to carry a picture of a gun, as far as actually owning a handgun I'm not quite ready to give up my first born child.

Rick, for home defense, why look for a compact pistol? I would go for the reliabilty and simplicity of a largish revolver for stopping power and "ease of use" at 3AM.....

Mark, I already have a Taurus model 669 .357 with a 6 inch barrel. For home defense I use Federal Hydroshocks in it. I want the compact just in case we do get CC, I want to be ready \:\) .

HomeDad,

"I would like a gun. But unfortunately I live in Calif., I think I would need a permit just to carry a picture of a gun"

Now, THAT'S funny!

Wid,

Hmmmm, having second thoughts about our 'Midwest fest'
