I started a thread a couple of weeks ago about concealed carry on your bike. I was initially a little suprised with the number of people that do carry. After listening to all of the input from that thread, I am considering getting my concealed carry permit activated again, and Carrying a pistol again. If I do decide to carry, my next question is what will I buy to carry. I'm not a big fan of the 32 auto because of it's very modest power. If I do decide to go forward with this I would like to stick with a 9mm or better, with my favorite being the venerable old 45 acp. If the need to use it ever did arise, I would want to know that I have an adequate firearm for self defense. With that being said, the llarger calibers naturally come in a bigger package, which makes concealment a bit more difficult. My question is, what caliber and model of pistol do you carry, and how do you carry it? There are some pretty nice pistols out there in 9mm, 40 S&W and 45 acp that are reasonably small.
