Any recommendations for an affordable, reliable carry gun? Around $400 if that's possible. Definitly not expecting anything that'll last forever or is fancy hahaha

J frame (642 or 442), LCP, BG 380, Kahr, Shield, LCR,

Thanks! Also, I'm curious as to why you recommended the 642 and 442 and not the 637 being that its pretty much the same but single/double action. The single action seems like it would be a nice option to have. Whats you're take on revolver vs semi-auto for cc? Being that you listed both.

Pistols and revolvers both have their pro's and con's. I carried a 14 round .40 S&W SW40VE daily for 3 years, got tired of the bulk and especially the weight, and bought a S&W 442 which is a 5 round .38 spl to carry instead. I've carried it daily for nearly 1 1/2 years and I can't say enough good things about it. It's reliable, very small and light weight, and extremely simple. The recoil is a bit aggressive but not terrible. The biggest drawback is the small round-count, but I feel comfortable with it. With revolvers, you don't have to worry about feeding issues, magazine failures, picky ammo, etc. Single action isn't needed for defensive revolvers, and the hammer can get hung up on clothes. I'd suggest checking out as many guns as possible at gun shops and find a local range that rents guns.

It would have been great to have parents, but it made BMX so much more hardcore and real not being able to buy anything new, ever.

Awesome!  You should try to find an Elcan SpecterDR 1.5-6x with 7.62 bdc for that issued look.   8)

I've always had "country" guns. 12ga., 20ga., 22, 30-06, 9mm. I haven't had a pistol in years and I'm heading up in a couple days to pick up the Smith and Wesson SD9VE. I've heard nothing but good words about it other than the trigger. Anyone have one or used one? I just want another pistol to have around the house for a quick grab if need be.

I've had the .40 version for 5 years and it has been flawless.

Haha. An online petition isn't going to do a thing to make the RCMP reconsider.
