If a threatening situation can be defused without shooting, it seems that this would be a positive outcome. Undoubtedly if shots are fired there will be some legal/police complications. As a minimum I assume I would have my gun confiscated as evidence and would need an attorney. If the sight of the firearm dissuades the criminal, all of that is avoided. I am not at all concerned with "impressing" the criminal, only in stopping the situation. If carrying a larger weapon is more likely to achieve that end then I would probably be better off putting up with some inconvenience as compared to carrying a smaller gun. On the other hand, since it is likely that I will NEVER encounter a situation where my gun is needed, how much inconvenience is worth experiencing just to be able to show a larger gun? I'm not sure which way I will decide in the future.
