My newest carry gun is a 9mm Beretta Nano (originally designed for .40 and thus stout). Perfect for the pocket (nothing snaggy), wholly accurate (at self-defense distances), and reliable (with rounds greater than 115 grain).

If Glock comes out with a 9mm version the size of its new 42, it might turn my head. I like my Glock 19 (also for carry), and am about to get a 10mm Glock 20 (and a 6 inch drop-in barrel) for the woods and desert, strictly for defense. Probably will also get .40 conversion barrel for the range where I also take my nightstand SIG P229 for practice.

Suffice to say, I enjoy discovering handguns like I enjoy discovering Spyderco folders.

If I'm working I usually have my LCP in pocket.

My primary CCW for the past year and a half has been a Beretta Nano. Don't know about the pocket thing (I carry mine AIWB), but +1 on the accurate and reliable. Over 2,200 rounds downrange (all 124gr.) without a single hiccup and if (big if) I do my part, the Nano will keep them all in the 9 ring on a silhouette target, at 25 yards.

The Mastiff wrote:I don't know about 22's but in other rounds of ammo they use tungsten powder in a jacket. It's heavier than lead, and in powder form it isn't going to make it an illegal "armor piercing" bullet. In shotguns they have used steel, tungsten, and something else I can't recall.

I've heard the non lead primers ( to go all green these are necessary) are not as reliable, long lasting or as able to deal with climate extremes. Perhaps they have gotten over this as the military has ordered green training ammo. I don't know if it's only training ammo or if it is approved for combat, and if so, are there differences in shelf life, storage conditions, etc.
The mystery metal you're thinking of was Bismuth and apparently it's making a comeback. I own a few guns models those won't be listed but calibers will. 40Short&Weak, 7.62x54R, 6.8SPC, 22lr, 45-70 Govt<< the only government i trust as said by someone before me 12Ga no one argues with a 12 gauge twice. I remember taking hunter safety in school and my teacher told us about bismuth and tungsten shot for waterfowl as not to poison the water.

Those aren't all, just the ones I use for concealed carry. Been looking at the new Glock 42 .380! Maybe? :)

Bismuth shot was very attractive in terms of ballistics (compared to steel) but IIRC it was very expensive. I still have some 20 ga shells with the prices on the box and even 10 years ago it was a lot of money for a box of shells.

I would have been all over the G42 if it was the single stack 9mm I was hoping for.

Just picked up a Ruger Mini 14 Ranch today, looks like is may be an early 90's model. Not entirely sure. It was used, and I got nothing other than the gun and a mag.
