    Hungarian FEG PA-63 in 9x18 Mak basically a copy of the Walther 9 mm James Bond used. It is also my Avatar pic with Grips I made from walnut.

    You can find one for under 300 dollars.

    In a Desantis Nemesis holster I can kidney carry wearing a T-Shirt.
     
  3. OK, let me see if I have this right.

    You're looking for a concealed carry weapon that also qualifies as a "C&R" firearm?

    By definition, a "C&R" firearm would NOT be something I'd think about carrying "for real".

    Assuming you do find the perfect "C&R" firearm at the price you like. Are you going to just carry it from day one?

    How about shooting it on a regular basis, you know, to keep current on your carry gun?

    If you're going to be a collector, that's one thing, but thinking seriously about carrying this as your Daily Carry Gun doesn't really sound like a good idea. Throw in a pocket carry, hopefully with a decent pocket holster and this still isn't looking like a good idea.

    With that said, I'm open to ideas on why this is a good plan.

    Remember, once you start to carry that weapon, you're in a whole different league and will have to change some of your plans and actions accordingly.

    I'm not trying to be argumentative here, but I'm curious why you would select a "C&R" gun over something from this century.

    AD...C&R qualifier is 50 yrs manufacture date. The Makarov series, Hungarian, Polish, Chech, Russian, are all simple blowback military and police issue. They are very HARD to Kill. Watch the VID
