M1 Carbine (IBM Corporation) - An M1 Carbine was the first firearm I ever shot; I must have been 7 or 8 when Dad took me shooting with my older brothers.
This is a Smith & Wesson Military & Police .40 caliber compact edition. It will likely be my next carry gun. They make one with tactical night-sights and a crimson trace grip laser. That would be ideal. Best of all it's light enough to sit in an ankle holster and small enough that no one notices it when walking around in public. Love this gun , my DADS GUN!!!
