    CCW options covered?

    I think I've got handguns to cover different CC scenarios. Am I missing anything?

    S+W 442
    Kahr PM9
    Glock 19 and 23
    Kimber Pro Raptor II
    Springfield TRP

    I have holsters for all. The only thing I may want to add would be a higher capacity subcompact. But, the G19 or 23 is not a lot bigger than a G26 or M+P compact.

    Forgive my noobness but I'm guessing caliber as

    .38
    9mm
    9mm/40
    .45 acp
    .45 acp

    If I'm correct you have a great set of options for concealed carry, may I suggest picking the best all around (GLOCK 19) and perfecting carrying and shooting that one gun.

    You could get a GLOCK 26 and carry GLOCK 19 or 17 magazines for a reload or just carry the 19 with a 17 magazine for a reload.

    I don't see a Ruger Alaskan in .454 Casull listed...

    But seriously, you've cast a wide net. What you have covers 98% of any anticipated defensive needs. Wants, however, is quite a different story...

    Perhaps a Ruger LCP (or other tiny mousegun) that you an carry when all other's are too big? That way you can pocket carry if necessary

    He can easily pocket carry the 442...

    I was just reading in a gun magazine that Taurus has added a model of the Judge that shoots 45 long colt/.410 buckshot and now .454 Casull. I bet that has a serious recoil!

    Easily is a relative term. Not saying you can't, but it was the only reasonable suggestion I could think of.

    I can only speak for myself and offer a recommendation. Maybe do what I did, pick one gun that you can carry and will carry 100% of the time you are going to carry. Learn that weapon well and practice with it as often as possible. That way when you absolutely need to use it, you don't have a different trigger system than you might be used to. Not to say that someone can't shoot multiple different guns accurately, I just feel that someone's carry piece should more or less be standardized.

    What he said! Every range trip I make my EDC gets a workout, I also compete with it.

    I agree with selecting your primary EDC and practicing with it a lot.

    You're pretty well covered now just figure out a way to CC all of them at the same time

    I have 7 handguns in SD calibers (although 2 of them are really too large for CC in my opinion). I've never had any issue switching as I shoot them all frequently. If the 5 that get carried regularly, three are snubs (same operating process) and two are semi-autos with virtually the same operating process. It boils down to either I'm carrying a revolver or semi...no major issue for me.

    My heroes are Veterans and My Father (who was a veteran).

    I believe prayer and the Pledge of Allegiance should have REMAINED in schools, and the Ten Commandments should have REMAINED in schools, courthouses, and everywhere else it was before the ACLU got involved.
