    Does your EDC change for rain?

    I spend the majority of my time outside whether working or not. I often find myself getting caught in rain showers. We have had some pretty stormy weather here the last couple weeks and it got me thinking about what I could do to minimize the adverse effects of soggy conditions on my firearm. I clean my guns on the regular especially after a long day in the swampy NC woods.

    So do you change your EDC for stormy weather? Different holster? Different carry location? Different gun? Do you prefer a gun with a certain finish (SS vs Parkerized?)

    For what its worth I carry a TCP in a Remora holster. My other option is a Poly PD Judge.

    I do not. It is a tool to me. I do take care of it, but its the same gun (smith 457) and the same holster (desantis) all the time...

    Nope, I carry the same set up rain or shine.

    Nope. I don't carry high dollar guns though. And we're concealed only here, so it's not in direct water. The benefit to mostly plastic guns, is that they're mostly plastic

    I rarely carry my chocolate guns if the forecast calls for rain. On account of the melting, you know.

    I currently have two different weapons I carry at any given time, both indoors and out in the elements. Even had the misfortune of being in a capsized boat while wearing one once. Like someone else stated, as I'm sure others will say as well, they're tools. Most modern firearms are made to withstand some pretty rigorous abuse. As long as you keep your weapons maintained and clean you'll have nothing to worry about.

    I carry the same EDC gun all the time with the same IWB holster. I do change my gear/clothing for the weather (as I'm sure you do as well), but not my firearm.

    Nope, one of the things I look for now in a gun is a very durable finish that will withstand a lot of sweat or moisture.

    Same for me, but with the Glock19. It just laughs at getting soggy.

    Here in Northwest Oregon, the weather report is a chance of rain through May. I carry a 1911 year around.

    I carry a gun, because a Cop is too heavy.

    I used to worry about my gun dissolving in the rain, but then I figured if I don't dissolve in the rain, my gun probably won't either.

    Just be sure you drill a hole in the bottom of your holster, before you step into a creek of unknown depth.

    Oh yeah! Bring your WD-40!
