    With two spare magazines, it should be safe to carry out the garbage after dark.

    Just saw an ad for the Smith Wesson M&P Shield Plus. New Shield in .30Super Carry now carries 3 more rounds - total 16 rounds.

They are not for them even though they may like one for themselves. The World is full of idiots and we have a couple of certified ones right here. They know who they are.

    We don't know.
    I don't think anybody has shot one yet.

    I don't think I would ever need a quick draw carry. At camp I would get advance alarm of any 2 legged intruders. Around Town, forget it, a bad guy can get the drop on you 99 out of 100 times. Sometimes, I carry around Town with my hand in a coat or jacket with my R-51 in my hand. Just too easy for them to get the drop on you - just look at all the police officers that are shot by a bad guy getting the drop on them.
    Is that 9mm +p enough gun at camp?

    Is that where the strange stuff was happening?
    Bigfoot!?

    I think you would need a 44 magnum as the minimum protection from Bigfoot.

    Jimbo -
    It sounds like you carry your pistol in what would be called "Condition Zero" on the 1911, with only the grip safety to prevent an accidental discharge.
    This is especially hazardous in the act of holstering the pistol with your shooting hand on the grip.

    Aileen Carol Wuornos was an American serial killer. In 1989–1990, while engaging in street prostitution along highways in Florida, she shot dead and robbed seven of her male clients. Wuornos claimed that her clients had either raped or attempted to rape her, and that all of the homicides were committed in self-defense.
    All seven murders were committed using a .22lr revolver.

    I just don't think the .380 or the 9mm aren't all they're made out to be.

As a former NYer I wanted to get up to speed in a hurry with my new piece so I ran a couple of thousands rounds through my M&P 9c. 13 rnd double stack that accepts the standard 17 rnd mag. That's 30 +P hollow points in a carry friendly pkg. The 9c is the size of the shield with a thicker grip. Not long ago 2000 9mm could be had for $250. Perfect can be the enemy of good enough.

    Lot's of folks carry the 9mm. In fact, several federal agencies have dropped the .40 S&W for the 9mm.
    I think and the agency I'm most familiar with think THAT was a big mistake. But it was a governmental decision and no one that I'm aware of was consulted. It was, "Turn in your .40 S&W. Here's a 9mm to replace it!"

    Lab12, my wife carry's a .22LR. It's what she's comfortable carrying.
    I have no problem with anybody carrying whatever they're comfortable carrying, be it a 9mm, .45ACP, even this .30 SC.
    Again, in a given situation, ANY firearm beats sharp sticks or rocks!
    😉
