I found the perfect gun for me to carry around that isn't too bulky. Its a Walther P22, it is light, reliable and practically zero recoil. It has an accessory rail for a flash light/laser too. I had a Taurus 9mm and sold it about two weeks after I bought it. It was way too big and heavy and I figured I didn't need to carry THAT much gun on me. I also needed a gun that my wife could handle if need be.
