I like the Beretta and the .38! Good post

I was surprised they chose the Beretta over a Ruger LCP, but I do own one of each. I like the Beretta for the tip up barrel and my wife carries it when she decides to do so. .22 is a little light though, but hey, it beats a 1911 ya leave sitting at home, as they say.

Any firearm is better than a sharp stick.

Get a .44 magnum revolver. You pull it out they know an old man with a beard means business.

Or you can just brandish it, pull your coat back to show the heavy revolver and say "is there gonna be trouble boys"? Long as you are dressed like a cowboy you will be good.

Always wondered this, does anyone know why the barrel on the bobcat tilts up?

Loading. Very convenient, too. Tip up to load rather than racking the slide. With clip installed, it's ready to go. Actually a neat feature.

All right, let me throw this question out at you all. Let’s suppose one is a senior citizen. 20/20 vision but who’s arms are not long enough to focus on a piece of paper. Your typical senior wears reading glasses. Shooting a pistol requires you focus on the front sight and place your target center mass. Odds are when you are carrying your CCW weapon you are not wearing your reading glasses. One only needs it to read small printed words on a label and such. When you have to draw that weapon there is no time to put on your reading glasses to focus on the front sight. The front sight is blurry, what do you do now?

No different than shooting a pheasant when it pops up ... you point and shoot. Aim as best ya can, follow (and lead) your target and bang. LOL. I seriously don't see this as a major setback for someone like myself who's an old guy, but have shot everything and anything since childhood. Reading glasses are for close in, if that's all ya need, you don't need 'em for distances. I don't have the greatest eyes in the world myself anymore, but we're talking feet here, not long range sniping, so I'm good - LOL

Once a year I have to qualify on the firing range, occasionally I can get away with wearing reading glasses, when I do I fire expert. Clear sights at blurry target, no problem. The times I can’t wear the reading glasses, I still qualify, but shooting at 7, 15 and 25 yards, is tough when the sights are blurry. Especially at 25 yards, breathing and trigger pull is all I got and I’m always surprised I hit the paper. I was hoping someone has a better idea. I carry a S&W Shield 40. It’s got some kick but I’m used to it. However, it’s very compact and easy to carry. I’m not saying it’s a top concealed carry but I like it.
