    That little thing looks like a mini Beretta 1934 in .380! They were an awesome little piece, but suffered a bad rap.

    I used to use one for concealed carry when I started off doing Cash Transit work back in the early 90s. We had one of these, a few .380 Walther PPK's and a couple of old Browning 9mm Hi Powers to choose from. I liked the PPK, but found the grip too slim, and the Browning was too large to conceal under a t-shirt while wearing a belt holster, so I went with the Beretta. Wasn't the most accurate weapon, but at 8 meters I could put a hole in a dime... Accurate enough for me!

    I guess I will resurrect this old thread. The silencer is my latest aquisition. It is so quiet I could here the rounds hitting the cardboard target downrange and the bolt slamming around in the receiver. I really didnt expect it to be so quiet on an MP5. Im not a hunter, I coulndt shoot anything living (animal lover) so its paper targets and metal plates for me. I enjoy 3 gun matches and shooting courses for best time here at my local range. I have as much fun building and tinkering with them as I do shooting them. The tax stamp approval took 8 months for the can and the SBR thanks to Obama's executive orders but its here now. The Serbian short barrel folder in the bottom pic only took 3 month. I dont have a whole lot of pictures unfortunately.

    Just put the finishing touches on this 308 AR Build and it is a tack driver. Every piece was carefully chosen and it took me a year to get all the parts. Incredibly accurate out to 500 + yards. It can hang with any high end bolt action rifle.

    I'm included. I just backed off of sporting clays to develop some hand and mind combination to learn guitar. My mind is way ahead of my hands. It's a bit frustrating hearing the buzz and hum instead of a clear sound, my hands can't deliver yet. At least with the guitar I can practice any time I want. Sporting clays is like going offshore fishing almost, with all the packing and storing. In any event it's good to have some gun owners in the neighborhood.

    So what pistol wouldd be good for CC? Don't laugh, but I was thinking of the Bereta Nano 9MM but something tells me it might be too small and might have issues with ejecting casings with lighter loads.

    Any recommendations for a single stack, (single row in the magazine) CC sized 9MM pistol?

    This is all very well and good, but I can't help - as an Englishman - to suggest that despite the shiny hardware and specialist rounds and marksmanship, if you come up against someone from this Sceptered Isle, be prepared for a sharp barb of vocabularistic gymnastics.

    And while you are reeling from a verbal volley of linguistic tai kwon do, we will present the most dangerous weapon we have at our disposal - tea with milk and sugar.

    And while you're trying to figure that concoction out, should it be necessary to escalate to violence, we may have to resort to a light tap across your face with a cotton glove and demand a duel.

    At this stage, as the caller of the duel, we can choose the weapon of choice. Thus, we would suggest the height of sophisticated British weaponry:

    Not into guns per se, but I have a CCW permit & I DO carry always. To me, a gun is just a tool, like a screwdriver or hammer, designed to save your life; nothing more.

    I enjoy shooting and have been doing it since I was seven years old, way back in the '60s. We lived out in the county and had an old abandoned marble quarry in our backyard that offered a great backstop. Having grown up in the mountains and having been a Navy man in WWII, my dad had various arms from a Winchester model 92 to a first year Ruger Super Blackhawk in .44 magnum. As a kid, the paperweight on my desk was an unfired 38 caliber armor-piercing cannon projectile. We plinked for the fun of it and to learn marksmanship. It was just a part of being a man and growing up in the South. The Winchester hung over the mantel in my bedroom at the family home for years.

    A few years ago I got interested in rifle marksmanship on a more serious level and decided to take a course. I was surprised and pleased when at the end I qualified as a Sharpshooter by military standards. I was pretty proud of it and called up my dad to spill the beans. Interestingly enough, he had trained with the M1 Garand in 1944. Everyone in his battalion thought he, with his glasses, wouldn't do well. However, he was raised in the mountains like me and his father had trained him well. He ended up shooting top of his battalion and qualifying Sharpshooter as well, so it was a fun little thing we had in common.

    Now that I live in the suburbs all our plinking has to be done on ranges.

    Guess who else is a shooter? Me :D

    My family is big into hunting, while I'm into guitars mostly, I bow hunt and gun hunt with my dad on our land that he has. We make sure whenever we hunt to get the best shot possible to try and make it as painless for the animal as possible so we can get the meat off of the animal as it is better nutritionally and the animals have better lives than the ones living on a farm :thumb:

    Growing up, I was big into duck hunting (I grew up in SW Louisiana). Moved to New England after I got out of college ... and hunting sort of fell by the wayside. I still had my shotguns, and old Mossberg 12 pump, and an even older Mossberg 12 bolt-action. Poly-choke on both of them.

    After we moved to Tennessee, we bought a .22 rifle for the family one Christmas. A few years later, I bought a Ruger SR9c. We live in the hills and have our own target area nestled in a valley between two of them - you shoot into a hill. My oldest son and I took a carry permit class together. The SR9c was nice, but too big to carry. I saved up and got a Springfield XDS 9mm. Very nice handgun. We also got an SR22 for my wife.

    And. right now, the SG is mine. But, my oldest has learned to play left-handed so he can inherit it! :D

    Being the new guy, one of the best parts is resurrecting all the cool dead threads :)

    As to a suggestion for a decent CC pistol, give the S&W M&P Shield a try. There are many other brands these days and the market is on a high right now for compact 9mm single stacks but the Shield seems to work fine for me.

    As for myself in general, I've been shooting and carrying for most of my life. Not much of a hunter, really. I do carry daily and have worked at many ranges over the years, both on the civilian and military sides of the fence.

    My only troubles come from the dual cycles or waves of buying. I have this weird cycle of selling guitars to get more guns, only to switch periodically and sell the guns to get more guitars lol. If I could only retain both at the same time I'd be set.
