Every once in a while, when I meet someone new, and they find out what I did for a living, they’ll start asking me about guns. More often than not, the conversation will turn to concealed carry, and they’ll ask me what kind of gun I carry. I’ll tell them, “I carry a Sig Sauer P938”. They’ll realize this is a tiny gun if they know their firearms. Not comically small or anything, and for some reason, they think I’d carry a larger weapon.

“You mean you don’t carry a 226 (referring to a larger model of Sig Sauer) or a Glock?”.

“Nope,” I’ll tell them, “The 938 is all I carry.”

“Why?” they’ll ask. Then I explain the reasons to them like I’m about to explain them to you now.
