Default Quick trip to Atlanta this weekend

For my oldest grandsons high school graduation. I usually take 2 pistols with me on a trip like this, one for the car and one in the suitcase. But since Iím going in my daughters car I believe Iíll only take one, but which one?

Normally I take a pair of small 380s. A sig P238 and a Kimber micro Cary in 380. The Kimber lives in my car. The sig in my suitcase. But on this trip maybe Iíll take a Bersa thunder+ in 380. Still small but has 15 rounds in the mag. Humm. It will fit in a pocket but it bulges a little. The Kimber carries the easiest, but the sig has night sights.

Which one would you take???

When in dought select firepower, not necesarily caliber,(I wouldnt have a .22, or even a .32 with me) but enough in the magazine to accomplish the task if GOD forbid the necesity should arise. And of course a spare magazine.

A personal choice is akin to a nose on a face, most have one, but a .380 loaded with a quantity of rounds equipped with top ballistically capable bullets WILL do the necesary should the unthinkable happen.

Good choice. Enjoy the grandsons graduation.

PS: A way to store it securely while you are in the school.

Even with that many choices the answer is easy Byron. Take the one that matches your shoes...

That looks like a really nice gun club Richard. And pretty close to my kids house.
