Well today has started better than yesterday, Basset Hound got his long awaited christmas gift! Lets all hope we see more postings like his!
Someone must be getting theirs. I have notice hand Gun sales at local Mills fleet farm going up. It is going to be a very good year for them.
Took my Ruger SR9C out to the back yard this morning an put the first 50 rounds thrue it, Seemed to cycle a little slow for the first 25-30 rounds, after that it felt real good, had to move the sights just a tad, Ive got to start spending a little time with this gun so it feels just as comfortable as the other guns in the safe. If the permit did come today I think I would carry one of the glock's for a while, On the Ruger I found myself fumbling for the safety and trying to figure the best way to hold the shorter 10 round clip grip, Dont get me wrong, I realy like the feel of the Ruger in my hand and the accuracy superceded my expectations for an action of that sort, just want to feel a bit more comfortable with it before I carry it, personally I would rather carry a revolver for the accuracy, Revolvers just dont carry as comfortable for me tho, maby the proper holster or revolver would remidy that? IDK? All of my revolvers are for hunting and would be foolish to carry because of barrel lenght alone not to mention size and weight, I have never owned a snub nose revolver, never had a use for one, and I am not convinced the added accuracy of a snub nose revolver would be substantual enough to make a change. Not only that I have never been accurate fireing double action, in reality, the only time a revolver becomes real accurate for me is if I cock it before fireing each round (Thats how I opperate hunting, cock before each shot). Nope, I think Ill spend a bit of time plinking in the back yard with the ruger for awhile till it feels natural, untill than carry one of my old reliables... That is... if I get a permit someday.... LOL
Most good Auto's need about 100 rounds or so threw them to loosen up.
The SR9C ,I just happen to have in a shoulder holster right now is a fine compact 9 mm .
Trigger system in designed for carrying with one chambered. When you skill level is ready for that.
Some will find they prefer a revolver. Nothing wrong with a shrouded hammer 38 most modern ones will take +P rounds
Ruger and S&W both offer some very nice ones and the 5 shot does not take up much more room than the 380 LCP.
look into a Crimson trace for it pricey but a very nice system for the SR9C
Another thing I noticed is the subtle change from going from an outside holster to an inside, Just a little change like that requires a lot of practice. After a lifetime of holstering outside the pants... Ive been practicing that for some time now and have become proficient at it.
Any long guns with a sling that conceal? LOL, Now thats the most comfort for me, Out in the sticks hunting. I am pretty darn proficient with a firearm, just pointing out that just because a guy is a lifetime hunter, shooter, like me, their are a lot of habits that need to be overcome for concealed carry, its a whole new ball game, Best to work out all them bugs before that moment when you need your instincts to kick in.
In the waist band works for some not others.
There are some low tech low cost chest type that fit and work great.
you can waste a lot of cash finding the right one if you can not try a friends out.
Your size has a lot to do with how well IWB works for you.
IWB you must have a strong belt almost no one sells them off the rack even the so called heavy motorcycle belts are to weak. IWB work great with a true mold holster IMO for anything over a 380 the slip in non- molded just do not work out.
Couple pieces of advice.
Cycle any auto at least 250 rounds no less before carrying for defensive purposes. Then disassemble the gun clean it like you are going to eat off of it and use a good synthetic gun oil sparingly in the suggested places and then. Hand cycle it about 50 times to spread the lube. This is you're life man take the time to do it right and pay attention to detail.
Revolvers. Very excellent snubby that is nice to carry is the Chiappa Arms Rhino 357 mag stoaked with 125 grain Gold Dot HP. This gun is very concealable and is so fast for followup shots you will not beleive it. Back on target faster than any gun I own including some real nice Kahr Arms and Glocks. Put +P+ in it even more controllable. Nothing more reliable than a revolver.
Cross Breed holsters the most comfortable that I have found both the mini or snap slide for OWB and super tuk delux for IWB

You guys are lucky. Colorado is taking almost all of the legally allowed 90 days to issue. Friend's wife got her's on day 89.
