We have open carry here in Utah, supposedly, but no one does and I prefer to avoid the drama so I only CC.

I carry a Glock 17 or a Smith & Wesson 380...I will probably upgrade the 380 to something more powerful. I both concealed carry and open carry; here in Kentucky open carry has been legal for so long no one even notices. Also, I carry everyday; it is part of my morning dressing routine. Dean Weber

I completed my concealed carry class last night at Palmetto State Armory here in Columbia SC.  It was a very well prepared and executed class.  The instructor was very professional though relaxed and funny, so the class was good.  I've got to brag a bit out of the twelve of us that were in the class, I was the only perfect score of 100 written and 100 range!  Now granted, I could have been throwing baseballs and hit the target as much, but I was keeping my group tight!  I sent my packet off this morning, and according the SLED website, it should take about 90 days until I find out whether it's been approved.

Matt T, I have a 5.7 I can carry just fine here in TN and altho' my groups are not great, I can get on the paper at 100 yards. Do I need that kind of power? Not really. Of course, when I shoot the silhouette I'm not concerned with small grouping as much as I am CoM groupings (6" - 8").

Matt,  I understand what your saying.  I will use the PT111 for daily carry but the Shield for those places that I'm wearing difficult clothes to conceal in.  Probably ankle.  I'm a fairly decent shot, though I will put the Shield through its paces at the range before purchase.  If it doesn't give me the accuracy, then I may look at something else.

And yes - I perfectly conceal a full size M & P 9 every day.
Comment by Matt T on July 8, 2015 at 7:49am
Do you really want to trust your life to a sub compact? The caliber isn't the issue - but accuracy and ease of use. I can have a 3 inch group at 20 ft with a full size M&P, can't do that with the compact or shield. Think about it. The smaller the pistol, the greater the liability.
Comment by John A. on July 8, 2015 at 7:49am

Steven,  I know what you mean about legal issues.  I have my concerns as I am a law abiding citizen and retired military.  I'd hate to tarnish my reputation by being stupid.  Though I have been accused of that from time to time.  I am taking all the advice and recommendations on board, from not only this forum but the instructors and info at Palmetto and others.  Although I went through extensive firearms training in the military, that was a different environment and rules.  The safety is the same, but everything else is different.  I'm going into this as a novice and appreciate all instruction.

Comment by John A. on July 8, 2015 at 7:45am

Thanks Kevin, I'll look into those recommendations!  The  PT 111 is small, but fires and controls like a larger framed handgun.  I am very impressed with it.  I also have my eye on the SW M&P Shield.  It feels very good in the hand, though I haven't fired it yet.  I wonder how snappy it is on recoil.  I like it's slim profile, but it is a single stack.  It could be concealed much easier than the PT111.  Thinking maybe ankle holster for it.  Need to find out what is comfortable for me.

When buying a pistol for carrying, the hardest thing to do is to buy with your mind not your heart. You really need to look at what you wear every day and what size pistol you can adequately conceal especially if you are in a strict no open carry state. Here in Tennessee the permit is for carry not just conceal carry so if I flash, no big deal (legally). But in your state, a flash at the wrong time might be a serious legal problem. 

I guess what I am saying is: don't go out and buy a 1911 size pistol and then have a hard time trying to carry it (buying with your heart) buy a compact or sub-compact .380 or 9mm or maybe even a .32 or .38 because you can hide that puppy 4 different places easily (buying with your mind)
