I have had a CCW since the first year it was offered here in Texas. I am an avid hunter and have competed in all forms of shooting sports for almost 40 years. I have a fair amount of firearms but my favorite "Carry" pistol is a Kahr TP9 with night sights. This model has a 4" barrel and slightly longer grip but is still very slim, compact and accurate for close encounters although, unfortunately not in Kahrs lineup anymore. I would highly recommend a Kahr for personal protection because I have never had a malfunction and I shoot it regularly to remain proficient.

I highly recommend everyone to carry some form of protection, whether licensed or not. If you pack a firearm and don't have a CCW, just make sure you know how to use it effectively. The bad guys don't care about the law, most police arrive AFTER the incident, and you have the right to self defense, no matter what the law says. Carried by six or judged by twelve, your choice, but if you get the bastard, he can't hurt anyone else after that, right?
With that said, guns are evil and kill people...
