I have my concealed also. I carry a kel tec .380 in a pocket holster. The holster squares off the gun and makes it look like a wallet or something and it just slides down in your pocket and keeps the barrel down, grip up. It's a decent little gun just don't expect to be accurate with it. Ofcourse you'll learn in the class that basically if someone is far enough away to have to use the sights, you were in the wrong anyways(assuming you havent taken the class yet?). NC could have slightly different laws/guidelines thouogh.

I carry it everyday with me and no one even notices it. I'd like to bump up to something a little nicer sometime or another like a S&W compact .40 or kahr, but then again i wouldnt want it to be too nice to where i'd worry about other things scratching/knicking it.

In MS there is no required class. Only background check, fingerprinting and $132.

I was looking at a .380 the other day but it sure is a small caliber. I am about to look around and see what kind of prices I can find on a Ruger P89 or P90 both 9mm. Im not real fond of the .45 I have never shot a .40 and the only glock I have shot I hated Dont know the make or model though.

I've got a Mass Class A. Conceled-High Capacity. I don't carry right now because I'm going through a divorce and $$ is non-existant. I have had a Colt Mark 8 1911 in polished nickle and ramped for shooting hollow tips. I also had a Beretta model 92, which is a .40

I will definatly buy another Colt 1911. Not good for conceled, but seeing it is a good deturrent!

Ruger makes good firearms I've had both a P95 (9mm) and a P97 (45 acp) and both were reliable. I carry concealed here in Texas and personally like the punch of a 45, I tote a Kimber 1911 in a 'small of the back holster' during summer and a 'shoulder holster' during the winter. Although it may be a little heavy compared to some of the combat tupperware out there, the slim frame of the 1911 is very concealable and comfortable once your used to it being there. It's just like these 4-wheelers though everyone is going to have their own preferences and opinions, go put some range time in and test drive a few before you commit, buy what fits you, what you shoot well, and what fits your budget.

I carry concealed, I was carrying a sig sp2022 .40 but sold it the other day and am about to buy a Springfield XD40 sub compact. My wife carries an XD9 sc. The main reason I am buying a sc is because that is the first thing I found, I will eventually get another full size to throw in my carry rotation.

Also not sure where Rosedale, MS is but I was in communication with a guy just south of Jackson who is selling an XD40 sc with an inside the waist band holster

Your right about the MS law. MS is a shall issue state so as long as you meat the requirements they have to give you the CCW permit.

Brent i have a P90 and the same Keltec P3AT derk mentioned. IMO the Ruger P90 is way to big and heavy to carry concealed for any length of time. In the winter it might not be to bad but in summer clothes it would be hard to pull off. Don't get me wrong i love this gun. Its a tank. Never faild on me one time but i use it for my "house/car" gun. If i plan on carrying on my person i take the keltec.380. I agree its a small gun but with some good quality +P ammo it will get someone off you for sure. Plus its super small and easy to carry.

If your really looking for a 9 mm there are many more suitable models for carry then the P90.Just my opinion.

I don't have my license, but been thinkin about getting it. I don't carry the gun, but we have a S&W .40 cal. and it's a decent gun... Mainly got it for home protection, I work late lots of nights and my wife wanted something to feel more secure. It was a pretty cheap gun, but it will work if it's ever needed. As far as accuracy, it's not accurate at all.. but over all it's good for me. My buddy has a Berreta 9mm, and HAD a Ruger .380 until someone broke into his truck and stole it. He has his handhun license, he'll probably chime in on here when he gets to Africa, he leaves today headed that way...

i agree with metal man. though i do not have a permit, i do own a ruger p89. it's much too heavy to be carried around all the time.
