Back on topic for the OP... what conditions are you looking to carry it under? Hot or cold weather, office or outdoors, etc... Do you plan to carry in an IWB (Inside the Waist Band) holster, a "fanny pack", or other? There are quite a few things that might present themselves as advantages or disadvantages when selecting the proper firearm.

I remember I fired a M1 a while back at a friend's place. It isn't everyday you get to fire a WWII rifle. His pops was a collector and had a bunch of WWI and WWII weapons. My friend actually broke his collar bone from the recoil of a Springfield sniper rifle.

Anyone know where one could get a professional bow and arrow set? For archery?

I have had my CCW since my state first allowed it. Mostly I carry a Glock 27, but other times when dress requires I may have a Colt mustang or even a small Seecamp. For lots and lots of info try Glock Talk Home .

I do not have a permit to conceal a handgun, but I will when I am of age. I do have two firearms though:

A Springfield 9x19mm 4" barrel 16 round XD-9 pistol, and a Franchi I-12 12 gauge 3 shot semi-automatic shotgun.

I use the XD-9 for the target range and the I-12 for sporting clays and skeet shoot.

Quick fact: I can break down both weapons blindfolded. I have yet to put them back together blindfolded. Still practicing though

I have also fired an M9 (i believe it was, at least).

It's getting to be quite an immotive issue on this thread.

I shall 'gracefully' withdraw. I've re-read what I've written but would add only this:

If you are truly in a position where carrying a concealed handgun either makes you feel safe or confident (not always allied to each other), you truly have my sympathy (and before anybody takes offence, I am being sincere rather than patronising).

At least I only needed mine when 'in harm's way' rather than where I live - that would be too much to bear (no pun intended).

Be safe.

The cops around where I live aren't going to protect you. The only thing they ever do is pull people over for speeding through town and clean up the mess, post attack, of course.

It's not that they're lazy, but you can't expect the police to be your personal bodyguards and follow you around 24/7.

That has actually been upheld in court time and time again across the U.S.A. Police investigate crimes, they are not required to prevent them. Their responsibility to to respond to the situation only after it is brought to their attention by you or someone else.

I carry a .45 Glock 21 for personal protection. I also have a Browning .270 for deer hunting, a Ruger 10-22 for small game, and a Remington 12 gauge for duck and dove hunting.

I have a Glock 23 and a Sig Sauer P6 along with some rifles and a shotgun. I don't have a CCW, since it's really hard to get one in my county. I would get a CCW if I could, but I'm not sure that I'd carry all the time. I think it would make me feel more paranoid if I had a gun in my pants.

Broadening the topic rather, this is an extraordinary situation, to be found in most so-called 'democratic' countries, where the criminal has the right, entrenched in law, to break the law, potential consequences and all, but the police and law-abiding public have no right under civil law to take preemptive action to prevent it, because no crime has (yet) been committed. Bizarre! By-and-large, it's only respect for the law and other people that prevents a great deal more crime.

I understand completely why people living in some areas of some places not only feel but know they have to carry a firearm to protect themselves - because no-one else is going to do it.
