Default Best Beginner's Concealed Weapon

What would you suggest ?

Here's an article that offers some ideas.


Like it or not, when the chips are down and lives are at stake, an armed citizen can be the "first responder." People who donít like guns invariably rely on people who have guns when their lives are in danger.

I use to part time in a gun store soooo I'd show and let them hold diffrent handguns, tell them to do their homework and read up on diffrent makes, find several that are in their budget, then HIT a range that rents guns and find out what make and caliber suits them the best. After all that come back and see us for best price in town, this really worked on the fairer sex. Only the Beginner can tell you the best carry handgun for them!

Hammerless 38 Spc J frame S&W revolver. Long DA pull and able to start with mild wad cutters and progress to +P as ability develops.
