What you been carrying lately?

Friday, March 10, 2023, 20:00 (10 days ago)

I seem to favor my G23 I converted to 9mm lately. It is 28 oz. loaded compared to my 32 oz. Sig 320. But I've been carrying the Glock mostly. I often dual carry with a Kahr P380.

I still have my G30s and Kahr PM45, keep a snubby .38 in my old farm truck too.

Isn't that little rig a peach?!!

My wife selected a 365X as her carry auto out of a dozen late models. I can't fault it, but I did favor the XL like you have. She still has issues with racking the slide on any semi since she broke both wrists. Two plates and (20) screws between the two patched appendages. So mostly she carries the Reeder Custom engraved M60 S&W. She really likes the Sticky holster she can tuck in a waistband w/o a belt.

I do not favor the .380 but I carry a Kahr P380 quite a bit. It's the smallest gun that I found which has actual "sights" on it. Power wise it's not far from the old top break .38 S&W of 100 years ago. Limitations noted. The Hornady Critical Defense ammo does NOT expand to any notable degree. FMJ is about as good IMO. SIG brand .380 FMJ sports a flat tip, if it feeds in your rig.

I bought a Redhawk from a dear Misfit a while back. Its a 4" round butt .45 Colt/ACP that can take the full moon clips. I put some hi-vis sights on it and found that it will also manage .45 Winchester Magnum ammo in the full moon clips. Many debate the "one" revolver you can own. I cannot dispute the choice of a 629, who could. But the RH .45 sure is handy and I plan on keeping it for the next 20 yr or so.

I may know that guy ha ha! Have been contemplating

a 4 inch 629. I do know where a standard 4inch 45 colt Redhawk is at my LGS. I saw TK custom will machine a cylinder to accept moonclips for a fairly decent price.
Just may have to layaway that Redhawk!

A while back I had Gary give it the PPP treatment. It is a lightweight, accurate yet rather potent package for daily in city/town as well as woods carry.

I have a collection of SP101

I bought a "Wily Clap?" (still not sure who he is and why he's so special) special run .357 when I got my last promotion, for myself. It basically has semi-auto sights on a revolver, sort of Novac style. I like it but it is chunky, which for a .357 snubby it needs to be. It's notably heavier than the petite little M60 S&W and actually weighs about the same as my GLock 23(19) fully loaded with 15 rounds. But I want to keep it around. It actually weighs about 2x as much as the Ti -S&W, that Jim Taylor carries in his ankle holster! Shhhhh!

Also I own a .32 H&R early model 4" with windage adj. rear sight. However I rechambered it to .327 Federal, just because I wanted to. I'm not sure where POA will be in relation to a good load but I'll find it one day.

For some reason, probably a good deal, I bought one of the 4" .22 8-shot trail guns. The sights are fantastic as I can actually see them. It's hard to beat. Alas, I have many .22 trail guns and a soft spot for my 6-shot M63 S&W. It's quite a bit of money tied up in a redundant piece, but I have lots like that.

I like them all but it is a little shocking for concealed carry when you discover a 5-shot SP101 weighs more than a 10-shot G30s.

That lil' old thing? It ain't hardly a gun!

Little bitty sawed off runt of a barrel .. ain't even 2" long! How can you get any power out something like that?

Generally Speaking

Saturday, March 11, 2023, 09:33 (10 days ago) @ WB

I like to carry my Colt Commander as I have for the last 30 years or so. Couple years ago I got a Kimber K6s revolver and really like it as a boot gun when I have to tuck my shirt in and look presentable for Weddings, Funerals and Church, Etc.

Wow, hard to fault that.

Saturday, March 11, 2023, 09:56 (10 days ago) @ Doctor

The Commander is a really nice gun. In the thousands of firearms I've owned in my life I've never owned a Commander. Hard to believe as I really like it. I've shot several in .45 ACP. I always wanted one in .38 Super. As a youngster I tried to trade for a satin nickel 70 series commander in 9mm but the guy couldn't help me on the $400 asking price. That was a premium at the time for a used Colt. I was making $85 a week after school working for a Grocery. I need to rectify this void.

I am constantly attracted to the very pricey Kimber, odd looking, revolvers. They seem chunky like the SP101 but sport an extra round and are so different. Like a moth to a flame, I'm seeing how long I can hold out trying one.

I have carried a Ruger LCP with a Crimson Trace laser in
the front left pocket of my jeans for many years and add various .45's when I feel the need.
Despite the pocket holster, all my jeans have a gun shaped faded spot. I guess I am not very stealthy!

G 48 Mos with Swampfox Sentinel and a G 43x. As either JT or Jim Taylor or maybe both once said-a second gun is faster than a reload and it struck a chord with me

Kel-Tec PF9 and NAA 22LR

What I carry….

Saturday, March 11, 2023, 17:51 (9 days ago) @ WB

I mostly carry a Glock 27/40 cal, or a Glock 42 / 380 when I need something really small. I will only carry a Glock because it’s all I’ve carried for 25+ years and those guns are like a natural reflex. The one exception is a snub nose 38 that I may wear on my ankle if I need to, but I also carried that on me for a whole career and it’s almost like a limb.

is what I have been carrying, a modern Webley Bulldog. Well, two out of three....ok...maybe just one out of three. But, it makes a dandy doorstop, can be thrown in trunk or bed for increased winter traction, and is likely better than a deck swivel gun converted to shoulder fired flintlock fowling piece.

It actually works for brief spells in a field jacket pocket or front (pleated) trouser pocket, grip protruding like any other snubbie with huge black grips. Hides completely in my old N3-B parka pocket, but so would a '64 Rambler station wagon. I have a Galco high ride which also works rather well.

Never thought I'd see the day where I had a Super Redhawk which I could stick in a pocket, but there it is. And quite accurate, too. Can manage 1.5"@25yds, which is amazing considering my eyes and this a snubbie.
