I can hide that Model 58 if I want to.
I'd rather pull out a .41 Magnum than a .22 Magnum if the chips were down. Although contrary to some, the .22 Magnum is way better than nothing. I'm an auto guy though, nothing feels better than a 1911 to me, but the Glock, Hi-Power, S&W M&P and many others will work. Bottom line is, the individual has to carry what they like. If your in a LEO agency, military, etc and have to carry what you're told, you better warm up to it.
Its not really even fair when I'm carrying a handgun and thats exactly the way I like it.
