Get a good gun that fits your hand if you do not have rules about what you can or cannot carry. If it fits and you like it, you are more likely to have it with you when you need it.

Old School POLYMER

If I had my way I would like to carry an old school DA/SA polymer pistol. recently acquired a CZ P07 in 9mm (see stock photos) as an off-duty option. It takes me back to the days of S&W DA/SA Gen-3 auto's. Before we went all Glock, and now all Sig P320, as in my case -- us kind-of old guys started w...

But my main focus in choosing the 43X is to use it as a BUG to my duty gun. I like the 9mm caliber (same ammo and caliber as my Agencies service weapons),...
