I appliied for my CCW permit on April 30, got it on June 5.  Pretty good turnaround compared to FOID cards.  State Police appear to be acting in good faith.

A friend of a friend just got his in 32 days recently.  ISP is doing a great job.

Freak…right on about the Ruger trigger.  Though I have several to choose from, I usually carry a S&W M&P 9c with Crimson Trace grip.  I’ve been looking for a good pocket carry gun lately.  I can’t find one that I like.  I’m waiting to get my hands on a new Beretta Pico to see how that one holds and shoots.

I’ve been looking at the S&W Bodyguard.  RIght now, I have an old S&W .32 hamerless revolver that I inherited that works as a pocket pistol.  I also have a Sig SP2022 in 9, but it’s a little big to carry this time of year.

Murdy, the Bodyguard is a decent pocket gun…certainly better than the previously mentioned Luger.  Priced right too.  If you’re not in a hurry for a pocket gun though, I would consider looking at a Beretta Pico first.  Just my opinion.

I have a bodyguard and a ruger lcp. I like them both. I actually prefer the trigger on the lcp. Also, the lcp is TINY. Since the arrival of warm weather, I have been pocket carrying daily in a desantis nemesis holster. In the pocket, the gun feels like my smartphone - similar size and weight. The lcp isn’t pretty, but it has gone bang every time that I have pulled the trigger. Also, the price is right - I think buds has them right now for $265 delivered to an ffl.

I tried an lc9 at the range and hated it. As mentioned, the trigger isn’t good and it is too big for comfortable pocket carry. 

My wife has a glock 42 and it is a nice little gun with a good trigger. Personally, I think it is even a little bit too big for summertime pocket carry in shorts, etc. However, the extra size makes it really fun to shoot - you can get a good grip on the gun, it has nice sights (much better than bodyguard and lcp) and it has practically no recoil.

When is the pico coming out?

I thought the Pico was already out.  On Beretta’s site they show a couple area gun shops as having them.  I haven’t made any calls to confirm that though.  I looked for it at Gander Mtn. and they never even heard of the gun. 

I wish that Kimber Solo had a better reputation.  Great looking gun for pocket carry.  Too many complaints about the Solo for me to even consider one.  I’m really hoping the Pico is what I am looking for.

Kentucky Gun Co and Bud’s still shows the Pico as out of stock.  Looks like a nice little gun, and I will wait to see how it feels before I buy.  I’d also like to handle one of the Glock 42s.  I’m in no real hurry.  I’ve actually seen a fair amount of love for the Taurus TCP on other forms from people whose opinions I respect.

Rural King by us put in a gun counter, but they won’t take the trigger lock off to let you feel the trigger. . . ?  Good prices though.

Murdy, not taking the trigger lock off is crazy for a store that sells guns.  Gander Mtn. used to try that move before they became a “Superstore.”  They also wouldn’t let you have more than one gun on the counter at a time.  I told them I’d NEVER buy a gun from them until they allowed me to pull the trigger and feel more than one gun at a time.  Now that they are a Superstore, you can handle as many as you’d like and pull all the triggers you’d like to.  Though they’re not the cheapest, I do like having a firearm Superstore in my area.  Lots of inventory…except for their accessories…unless you own a Glock.
