I use H&K USP .40 S&W (13+1 rds.) and S&W Model 457 .45 ACP (7+1 rds.). The first is for cold weather CCW carry as well as primary home defense gun. The second one is for warm weather CCW carry as well as a secondary home defense gun.

  sometimes people just drop off the net- may be just that and nothing else- as to weapons, anyone know or have an opinion on the makarov pistol- I am thinking of one, as one of my dealers have one cheap- and it is little, so ok for the uber hot summers we get here (today was 92 and 85% humidity)

    I've shot a half dozen or so makarov pistols.  I myself do not terrible care for them, but I have known a couple of people who do.  What I would suggest (if it's possible) shoot the gun before you buy it.  It seemed to me that about half of the ones I've shot had some problem or another (it's been years but i seem to remember extraction problems being common).  When you get one that works as advertised, it's an OK gun.

It all boils down to this. Get what you like and can afford in the largest caliber possible, that you can shoot well. All of the rest means zippo.

Preach it my brother from another mother.

I love my kimber ultra carry (1911 in .45):

But, my new bond arms derringer is sweet (45 long colt and .410)
