Default Need a pistol suggestion

Just got my CCL last weekend. I have a Taurus Tracker 357, but want something smaller to have in the car while I'm in New Orleans. Something in the 22 range. I'm looking at the Taurus PT22 and the like. Something small and not a revolver. Anyone have any experience/suggestions with small CC pistols?

i got a 1968 walther ppks in .380 auto thats about the same size as the guns you're looking at and packs a lot more punch, see if you can find an older series (not made by s&w) walther pp(k)(s), they're great little guns, fun to shoot, and fit in a back pocket without being noticed.

Stick with .380 and above (9mm if you can help it) or .38 in a revolver. Anything smaller is just going to piss off the fatty coming after you.

With that said, you need to give your budget before a gun can be recomnended for you. But almost anything that goes bang will be better than a .22

agreed, s&w saturday night special is always a winner, theres atleast one low profile model in stainless .38 spl that would probably be just as friendly as the ppk, most of the full 9mm guns are going to be too large for what you were talking about, budget is everything.

Kel-Tek PF9 is a pretty cool 9mm.

I agree with bigger is better but my wife's carry gun is a Walther P22 loaded with Stingers. Gotta say it makes a mess!

Gotta agree with LITECATCH though. Kel-Tek 9mm is a sweet, small carry gun

My favorite really small pistol is the Ruger LCP. Up a little in size I like the Kahr CW9.

Cool

The Ruger LC9 is the way to go, check out the spec size's and 9mm is a better buy then the 380 stuff

Kimber 1911 Ultra Carry .45 ACP. They also make 9mm and 22's. Like stated above, a 22 will just piss someone off especially if they are on drugs. IMO a .45 is the way to go!
