    Who has the oddest EDC?

    Lets have a little fun;

    Everybody and their brother carries a 1911, Glock, Sig or S&W and there are tons of threads about them. Lets talk about who has the oddest carry gun. The only rule is, it can't be a safe queen or just something you happen to own. It must be one that you carry on a regular basis.

    Fire away!

    Can it be something we used to carry?
    A man fires a rifle for many years, and he goes to war. And afterward he turns the rifle in at the armory, and he believes he's finished with the rifle. But no matter what else he might do with his hands - love a woman, build a house, change his son's diaper - his hands remember the rifle.

    Good answer, but I'm thinking he meant something that fits in a belt holster!

    I was using a CZ82 for awhile when it was all I could afford. Still carry it sometimes too.

    Thats what I was figuring, but I through it out there. CZ 82's are a great deal these days. They are well built pistols, although if I was going to carry something with that size/weight I'd want a 9mm. But if it was all I could afford, I would be confident in it's ability to serve me reliably.

    For quite a while, I carried a Walther P5 9mm as part of my work, along with a little Walther TPH .22lr in the back pocket---the P5 was replaced with an HK USPf 9mm which has been replaced by the smaller P2000 in 9mm. The TPH was replaced by a Kahr CW9 in a IWB holster. I still have and shoot all of these guns often---the little TPH still sneaks into my back pocket while I water the property. My first hideout gun was an awful little Charter Arms "Undercover" .38 revolver (it was all I could afford at the time---$65 new at K-Mart---way back!)---that spit lead everytime you shot it.

    I had one of the very early Star Firestars as my first EDC. Kinda wish I still had that pistol...

    Iver Johnson top break .32 S&W long--- I have carried it, do not now, probably will not again because of the horrible trigger.
    It once belonged to a Milwaukee Detective as his off duty gun. It was used in the line of duty.

    Would my Jennings/Bryco M59, carrying +1 in Thunderwear, qualify as odd?

    While I never did this, I knew a firefighter who carried a NAA mini-revolver .22 LR in a leather knife sheath for the old Buck 110 Folding Hunter knife. It fit perfectly, even had BUCK embossed on the front and no one ever thought it was anything other than a Buck Knife. It was extremely discreet, but being a rimfire .22 cal, not the best defensive weapon.

    However, it did fulfill the first rule of gunfighting... Have a gun!

    Definatly. While the gun itself aint that odd, the fact that someone would actually choose to defend their life with one IS odd.

    First carry was a Colt Lawman w/ 2.5 inch barrel in a shoulder holster, loaded w/ 158 gr .357s. Lot of gun in a small package. I wish I didn't trade it.

    I carry a P-95, my buddy thinks thats odd. He keeps telling me to get a Glock.

    I do know someone who carries a cap and ball revolver sometimes.
