I'm about to head down to the courthouse to get my license to conceal a firearm. Sometime in the near future I will be purchasing the firearm. I would like to get something small enough to strap to my ankle / something that will fit in my hand / and that is reliable. My friend has a 9mm and a 45, both are tooooooooo big. Some guy was telling me about a mini-glock 9. Said it's got the power of a full-size 9mm, just smaller for around $700. If it will cost me $700 to get a good gun with my wants than I'll pay it. I don't really want to pay any more than $700 though. BTW >> I'm planning on getting a house next year and always said I would have a firearm before living on my own. I don't even know if I will carry it around with me, but I never know. Thanks for any suggestions! I am guy if that matters.
