    For concealed carry:

    It's the preferred choice of uncover agents for good reason. I'd recommend .357 cal. for the stopping power. 9mm. would suffice as well. It's all a matter of preference, of course. MSRP's about $700, though. Probably one of the best handguns on the market as far as accuracy and reliability (I prefer semi-automatics).

    also for concealed carry:

    I've not shot this gun, but have heard great things about it. It's the smallest .380 on the market. I have heard stories about some factory lemons that had FTF problems that are easily taken care of with a little TLC.

    I know previous glock owners that have made the switch to the much less costly Kel-Tec P11. Again, I've not had the opportunity to fire one of these either, but am interested in looking into Kel-Tecs.

    I'm with Mixmaster in the fact that it's a good thing to have a free hand if need be in these types of situations

    And I'm with Bravo in his choice of a SIG. Spent a lot of time with a P225, and the P239 is the more modern, higher caliber variant specifically designed for the US concealed carry market.

    They handle so beautifully and are worth every penny. Not just fit, but features, especially -- I feel perfect safe without a manual safety.

    Sigs are very nice. Can't go wrong there.

    I still prefer H&K. P2000SK or P7M8 (which, frankly, I've never fired but have heard great things about--though some really dislike them and they're expensive as sh*t)

    We tend to think of Sisyphus as a tragic hero, condemned by the gods to shoulder his rock sweatily up the mountain, and again up the mountain, forever. The truth is that Sisyphus is in love with the rock. He cherishes every roughness and every ounce of it. He talks to it, sings to it. It has become the mysterious Other. He even dreams of it as he sleepwalks upward. Life is unimaginable without it, looming always above him like a huge gray moon. He doesn’t realize that at any moment he is permitted to step aside, let the rock hurtle to the bottom, and go home.
