    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.:walking: 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. :laugh:

    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 dont usually carry at work unless i have a bit of cash on me. do not like locking the truck up with the windows up holding in the heat.

    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.
