I am a real estate appraiser and frequently go to abandoned or repoed houses. In 30 years I've needed one a few times so I try not to leave home without it. I've encountered homesteaders, homeless derelicts, meth labs, and vandals. I don't want to carry something fancy or high dollar. If I have to use it, I don't want a ceracoated kimber 1911 sitting in a evidence locker for four or five years. But I do want something that will stop a twatwaffle in his tracks.

So anyway, folks, what is your weapon of choice?
I''m going to be serious for this one POST......

So here's goes get a 1911 or what your dear Friend RedBird suggested a Glock

And dry fire it 3,000 to 5,000 times at home to develope your pistol gripping technique and muscle memory , then and only then take it to the Firing Range and fire it 2,000 times for accuracies if I spelled that right

Now you are ready to concel carry your weapon around the likes of me......LOL

1911 don't jam or misfire and are precision hand guns I haven't touched a gun since my Military Days which ended in 1980 , but because of my age I plan to get one for Retirement 66 or 70 years YOUNG.

Yeah right that's what I said YOUNG I still haven't used the Blue Pill Yet and buddy I'm Still Going Strong.........LOL.

Ok, who are you and what have you done with Howest? Do you really think you can find a life pretending to be one of the most boring men around?

What ever gave you the idea that I needed help shooting? I've dropped running deer at 200 yds with iron sights.

And while I love the 1911, EVERYONE is trying to make a newer and better model. A few years ago I had a beautiful Beretta 1911 that handled and shot great. My brothers concealed is a Kimber 1911 with camo cerakote with a laser and additional clips. That thing is worth $2,000. If you think I'm gonna carry something like that you are nuts. I want something that if the cops steal it, I won't sweat it. Not real fond of Glocks for concealed, although they are good guns. I don't like the double stack for concealed. Makes the gun too fat for effective hiding and I don't want people to know that I have it until it goes bang.

8 MLB Pitchers Throwing 100 MPH or Faster in 2014
  • August 10, 2014
Indeed, in efastball.com’s list of pitchers who have thrown 102 mph or faster in MLB history, sixteen of the twenty-one listed hit their marks in the 2002 season or later. It is no longer a rarity in the game. Here are eight pitchers who have thrown pitches of 100 mph or better in 2014, according to PITCHf/x data on Fangraphs.com. Since PITCHf/x is the most scientific testing method, the results sometimes dispute what radar guns say and, in many cases, published reports of how fast pitchers have thrown. Stats are current as of August 7, 2014. Pitchers are listed from the “slowest” 100+ mph pitch thrown during the 2014 season to the fastest.

8. Gerrit Cole, Pirates

Pittsburgh’s Gerrit Cole went on the disabled list July 5, but not before the right-handed starter joined the century club in 2014 after hitting 100.0 mph in 2014. That wasn’t the highest velocity the young righty has clocked to date. In 2013, Cole hit 101.0 mph with a fastball. He is averaging 8.19 strikeouts per nine innings (K/9) as a starter in 2014.

Depending on what I'm wearing:
A Glock 27 (.40 cal, tho I should've got the .45) in IWB holster,
A Ruger LCP in either IWB or pocket holster,
A Seecamp .32 in pocket holster.

I like the ruger, but isn't the 32 a little light? granted at a range of 10 to 20 feet it doesn't take a lot. Not like we are dealing with Maori's or something.But I think something that will not just stop but knock down a target would be preferable. You can't always assume it will be one on one.

A friend of mine once suggested I'd be better off putting the .32 in a sock and swinging it.

Yes, its a little light. But I'm not a large person, and in the summer it can be difficult or uncomfortable to conceal anything bigger. I go by the philosophy that a small gun is better than no gun at all.

I once had a friend who worked undercover law enforcement, and sometimes all he could carry was a tiny .22 or .28. He said that they worked fine if you got close enough to put the round exactly where you wanted it.
