Defense for the Disabled

April 14th, 2007  

Dear Doctor Piazza,

What type of weapon would you suggest for someone who is disabled, on crutches, drives alone, is very busy and needs something for protection. I would like something I could carry in my pocket and have it close when I have to leave my vehicle. As my hands are on my crutches it is not easy to reach in my pockets.

Any suggestions?

Thank you


PS- Really liked your gun training reports on self protection, thanks.

Thank you Mike,

A small semi-automatic pistol in 9mm or a small .38 special revolver.

You will be able to hit better with the Glock due to a better sites and a better trigger and it holds more rounds.

The small .38 special revolver doesn’t have much in the way of sites and a long trigger pull which makes it harder to shoot accurately and only holds 5 rounds.

However, any gun is better than no gun at all.

Here are some good choices:

  • Glock 26
  • Kahr Arms PM9
  • Smith and Wesson Chief’s Special in .38
