    If you've got your CCWP then you must be thinking about carrying for self-defense. While there are many documented occurrences of people being killed with a single shot from a .22, it is generally considered to be inadequate as a self-defense rnd. Most here consider the .380 a bare minimum. However, most small pistols in that caliber, Kel-Tec, Ruger, etc., are not fun to shoot and are not considered range guns. My Kel-Tec P3AT makes my hand sore after 2 shots. That being said, a Glock-26 in 9mm is the easiest shooting sub-compact gun I've ever fired. It's small enough to be carried easily in a purse or in a variety of holsters for deep concealment. And more professionals shoot Glocks than any other brand so there is no question as to their reliability. I prefer revolvers but no snubbie in light weight alloy configuration and common caliber, (.38, .327 0r .357 mag) will be manageable with your physical condition.

    To me this would be a no brainer. Glock-26
