Douglas W. Rodrigues said: If you want to carry a good hide out gun, a small 5 shooter .38 Special would be a good one to have. Simple and easy to use. Basically fool proof. Even if your State doesn't allow conceal carry, carry one anyway. If you never have to use it, no one will ever know you have it. If you do have to use it, well, as we used to say in Law Enforcement, "It's better to be judged by 12 than carried by 6."
