Red is better for cooking bacon.

Wow...some very cool stuff in that safe. Do you still have the PSL, is it a TGI or Century....how do you like it, mine is a Tenn gun version and I am pretty happy with it so far..... Your FAL is it a century, DSA, or kit?

Gots the GAS for a FAL. Might also pick up an AK of some kind...nothing fancy...if I could get a WASR that would run that would fit my bill just fine....but those are hitting the mid $400's now...should have bought one when they where going for under $300.

Question NoobPistola

...so...advice needed. I have a couple rifles but I've ben thinking of getting a smallish handgun for the home and that could be easily carried on bike trips. Checked out the Kel-Tec smallies, but truthfully I haven''t a clue about what's good and affordable.
Not a gun guy.
I'm thinking small enough to carry anywhere, dependable, and semi-auto that holds more than 6 rounds.


I like the look of this...

Why a preference for a semi-auto? With your experience level and other needs, a revolver might be a better choice...

Absolutely, get a nice snub or 3in (like the SP101) .357mag revolver, and practice with .38spl, until you get used to it then practice with a few cyls of .357mag you would carry in it. A revolver goes off every time regardless of training so it is by far the best non gun guy carry gun. UNLESS you are going to TRAIN A LOT never get an auto to carry. You'll get shot trying to make it work in a pinch.

...good input. I assumed a small semi-auto would be easier to carry and use.
I read good and bad about the Kel-Tec, smooth, a small kick, some said there were jamming problems after so many rounds.
Maybe modern revolvers are just as fast as the semis...

Here's the truth about a carry gun.
A: You will probably never have to use it
B: If you do, you MIGHT have to actually shoot it.
C: IF you DO have to shoot it, chances are HIGH that it will be one or two rounds.
D: IF you have to shoot it empty, and AREN'T under cover enough to reload, then you are probably going to be killed or at least shot anyway.
E: IF you do have to shoot someone with a carry gun, it looks better in court to shoot them with a revolver because the gun hater society hates them less than a big bad ass killing gun like an auto pistol that holds more then six rounds. Sad but true.

I have had to pull a CCW piece twice, neither time did I have to use it, they look scary to the perp.

Oh, and I never felt out gunned whilst CCW a revolver, never. six rounds of .357mag is friggin devastating.

The slug size is another issue as well. Not sure I'd want a .357. I actually gave my dad's .357 Ruger to my sister because I didn't want it around. She did...let it knock her on her ass...
I guess I was thinking something less caliber and modern. WTF do I know. Nothing obviously.
I guess I should take this to another thread...

Which is why I suggest shooting .38spl out of it to get used to it then filling it with .357mag for defense. Also, you can buy lighter (158gr) .357 mag which doesn't kick like the stuff you were porbably shooting and another thing, you need to get used to a grip that won't allow a measly /357mag knock you or anyone on their ass. I can shoot super heavy duty .357mag all day and never get hurt or even have it phase me and I am a smaller guy of only 5'8" and 190. BTW .38spl kicks like a hot .22lr.

There are other (much) smaller options out there for CCW purposes. For what you descripe, it is a great gun, but spendy.
