    We have a local pawn shop that sells them new pretty cheap, not sure of the price but I think less than $200.00.

    Have to check what's in inventory at the moment, but we usually have most calibers.

    I was wondering if Keltec made it in 40.

    I wonder what the Marshall would say about the Remington 1858 cap and ball. LOL.

    Just my humble opinion. While knock down power, comfortable carry, and reliability are all considerations, there is another aspect to a carry gun that most of us are reluctant to consider.
    The fact that (God forbid) you might have to use that gun, you might never see it again.
    So even though my pristine C96 Mauser is powerful and completely reliable (using hand loads), I'm not willing to surrender it to police as "evidence" that will likely never be returned.
    So a cheap High Point just moved up the list. It will still go bang when you need it to and if you have to give it up, it won't upset you much.

    To your point, I don’t like to think about loosing my G19. There used to be a cheep Chinese gun (Raven?) we nick named “river gun”. So, that S&W M&P9 compact that I have been eyeing is loosing some shine.

    I have retired my old chief's special for a 642 airweight with ARX ammo. It is easy to carry and I figure if I need more than 5 shots, I was probably screwed anyway.
