    Let me know what you think. Cheers!
    My activities for this would be multi-purpose like detecting and Personal protection I am considering the glock 26 in 9mm. Thanks for the help I appreciate it.

    doesn't matter what you carry in a salt environment just remember when done for the day wipe off with a nice oily rag and get that salt air film off of it even stainless will pit

    What ever the make, model or cal., I'm thinking "open carry" would keep the more curious away on a "busy" beach.....just a thought. Just a little humor here fella's, no need to pay attention to it.

    I have seen what salt water and sand can do to firearms as I was assigned to a special forces unit for a few years. Will always do a good cleaning to it just like my detector and other gear after a outing.

    pocket gun, 380. Many brands to choose from,easy to conceal, you do not have long range but as much stopping power as the 9mm. Prospecting I open carry my sig 40, and conceal carry my 380, I am usually 20-25 miles from the boarder, and only use ear buds so I can hear what is around me. The military taught me to be aware of your surroundings

    I used to pocket carry a S&W Bodyguard .380 in a DeSantis Nemesis holster. Completely disappeared in any pants or shorts even board and gym shorts.

    The fbi's police involved shooting statistics show the 9mm is veyr effective and stopping.With a 9mm its all about the ammo. Police ammo is 1400fps and the hollow points are designed to make it through heavy clothing and stop. All that being said 9mm are not as easy to conceal when wearing a bathing suit. The glock single stack 43 is getting decent reviews. I carry a Taurus ch85 in stainless sometimes. Its a 5 shot 38 with a concealed hammer. More comfortable then most auto pistols. Using 38 plus P ammo its gets extremely close to 357 mag performance I still want something small that will fit in my swimsuit pocket so Im buying a Ruger lpc2. Every gun shop has shelves full as they are selling like crazy for around $250. They are a 6 shot 380. Not the best round for killing but you never want to kill , you want to stop.

    The 26 is a double stack mag and it stands out under your t shirt and really digs into your hip or ankle. I wore one as a backup gun for 12 years. Look at the new glock 43 single stack if you really must have a glock 9mm.

    When I wear shorts I carry a Ruger LCP II in 380. It fits easily in a pocket and hides very well.
