I stroll into a mid-sized gunstore in Oklahoma City to check out the latest sub-compact pistols. So you know, I’m not an operator who wears a tactical haircut. I’m an ordinary citizen who’s aware that a gun could save my life—if it’s easy enough to carry that I’ll actually carry it. That’s why I like sub-compact pistols.
Don, the 30-something dude behind the waist-high glass counter, probes with a standard opener. “In the market for something specific?”
“Yeah, a new pocket pistol that’s reliable and accurate.” (I throw out “pocket pistol” for the fun of it.) “I heard there’s some new stuff out.”
