    I've wanted a Bren Ten for a long time. It would be awesome to have it revived but it would have to be a big name manufacturer to do it at a reasonable price.
    IIRC there is a new version supposed to be coming out but I don't know much about it.

    The Vltor Fortis Bren Ten. It was supposed to come out in '09 if I remember correctly. Never did, who the hell knows if it will any time soon either.

    The problem i have with glocks, and this is a regional thing, is that they are too blocky to carry when its 100 degrees out with 90% humidity. A single stack pistol slim enough to ride in an IWB holster without announcing to anybody with a sober eye that im packing is a Godsend. Ive retired both a USP and an XD because of concealability/comfort issues in light clothing. Not surprisingly, both pistols were designed with law enforcement/duty use as a primary function.

    I reccomend Keltec because its fairly ubiqitous, you will ALWAYS find gunstores with parts and accessories for them, said accessories are cheap (30 bucks for a USP or sig mag?)
    and the customer service from Keltec is top notch. ive have a P3AT that has seen numerous years and when my slide started showing severe wear from holster retention, they sent me a new one free of charge (had to pay S&H)

    Not pretty weapons but for their purpose as concealable, reliable carry weapons Keltecs are world class.
    I disagree with you 100%. And you failed to buy close to conceal your weapon. i routinely conceal a glock 19 and i go out in shorts and a t-shirt. just wear a shirts that accommodate the extra room you need. if your weather and humidity are like mine no one thinks twice about you wearing a baggy shirt.

    Back when I had a Glock 23 I had no issues carrying it concealed in nearly 120 degree weather here in Phoenix. YMMV.

    You shouldn't have to buy a new wardrobe to carry a pistol and you shouldn't have to dress around your gun unless you're an officer whose department only allows you to carry certain types of guns off duty.

    Anyone can say oh I carry a Glock 17 with 3 extra magazines and I live in arizona where I wear a tank top and flip flops every day. What people fail to grasp is body types are different, someone with a bigger taller frame is going to be able to conceal a bigger gun easier.

    I'm 5'6" a glock 26 is difficult for me to conceal. while a single stack subcompact like the LCP is not hard for me to conceal.

    what I'm trying to so mush-mouthedly say is, body types and wardrobes are different but there is a wide enough selection of handguns for people to be able to carry and not have to buy a new wardrobe.

    I agree that full sized pistols are always better when you can get away with it. But honestly, it does get old dressing like a clown in order to conceal a pistol.

    My solution is simple, but not cheap. Different pistols to carry in different clothing. And a closet full of quality holsters so I have multiple carry options.

    If it's winter and I'm wearing a lot of clothes - **** it. I might strap on a full sized 1911. Jeans and a t-shirt - maybe it's a Glock 26 carried IWB.

    But I absolutely LOVE my Ruger LCP and I make no apologies to the caliber nazis. I can shoot, and if you can take a half dozen rounds of .380 in your face/chest then it just must be my day to die, I guess. Anyway, I can carry the Ruger in anything I wear. Because of the LCP I'm always carrying, even when it would be a total pain otherwise.

    Should be able to find a Glock 23 in the price range, my favorite carry piece. Glock 36 is also a nice one.

    I am more of the opinion that you should carry the same piece in the same place all the time. And practice with it lots. Drawing from concealment from your carry rig.
    Hey, can we have a holster thread? That would lead to even more arguing!

    Tactically, carrying the same weapon in the same place all the time is the way to go. It's just not practical for most people. I have to dress a certain way for work. I don't carry at work because I would get fired if I got caught. But I do carry when I go to lunch or if I go anywhere before or after work. I can't conceal a full-sized pistol. It just ain't happening. So I carry what I can the best way I can. Many times that means an LCP in a pocket holster.

    When I'm not at work and I can carry a full size pistol in a Serpa paddle holster on my hip, then that's what I do. But I'm armed every minute that I can be. A lot of my buddies who sit on their high horse about caliber and carry consistency often end up walking around with nothing. Flexibility is a good thing if you want to maintain a high rate of carry.

    Carrying the same piece in the same place is not something you can do for a civilian carry unless your wardrobe is all the same.
