My trusty old PPK .380. Bond style, ultra compact, forget its there. Named it "little bizitch" as it stings pretty good firing it. No room for recoil. Super stiff spring too.

I couldnt tell ya what your doing wrong because i dont know you. But here is the only way i have advertised. I put flyers in doors with the estimate for the customers yard on it. Over the last 2 years i have put them in about 2,000 doors
and i have only got 30 customers out of it. But everytime i get a call they already know the price so i dont get people arguing about price, everytime i get a call its a new customer. I dont have stickers on my truck or don any other type of advertising.

Lets quit talking about off topic stuff now. I think we crashed this thread.

I do not know what to get my wife. iv set my standard so high with my fns9 that I cannot find anything as good that she will like. fns9 is not comfortable for her.

I may have to settle on a Sig. at least the most important part is made in America. shrugs

by the way. the gun does not help you in the truck. how many of you carry it? I have a hard time carrying as it dragged my shorts down if I'm working

I normally alternate between the two, but the 26 is more comfortable. When mowing I never new to carry as I don't now those types of neighborhoods. Not mowing I will carry for the heck of it.

I carry all the time when I'm on my own, if I'm working for my friends I ask them and leave it at their discretion. I have a Full Size S&W M&P 9mm, wouldn't change it for the world.
