When I first got my CHL, I carried a Firestar m45, 39 oz loaded after a few months it felt like I was carrying a brick on my hip. I developed a limp. So I put my Kel-tec P-11 into service, it fit nicely into my left front pants pocket, I'm left handed. but it printed, and although no one ever called me on it, I did get a few strange looks. It did save my butt from a carjacking once, but the one time I knew trouble was coming I carried my trusty Firestar and a 22 mag derringer. It was the derringer I fired at the badguy and it defused the situation. From then on it was a matter of how I felt , during the day I carried the derringer, at night the P-11.A year ago I bought a NAA 22mag revolver and a suitable pocket holster. It is now my don't leave home without it, gun. It is quite accurate out to 15yds, hitting pie plate size targets with ease.
