I don't know much at all about guns, but I'd like to buy one for personal protection. I'd like something very small. I prefer silver metals, dislike wood, and like sleekness and right angles. I'd prefer a (relatively) inexpensive model. So long as it's capable of performing the necessary task, I don't need any absurdly fancy stuff. I'd still like a bit of sexiness, though, and preferably the sort of thing that could fit in a jacket pocket if need be. I know there are many who are knowledgeable about guns here, so any guidance you might have would be appreciated.
