This is a discussion on My NEW carry gun: a 9mm Mauser Broomhandle (with pics) within the Defensive Carry Guns forums, part of the Defensive Carry Discussions category; you cross draw all the way around to your back?.......
you cross draw all the way around to your back?....
I would be curious to see how it would look in a SOB configuration... I know that isn't how you planned on carrying it but it would be interesting to see if it is any better concealed.
There is something about firing 4,200 thirty millimeter rounds/min that makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside.
OK, I have to. Here goes....
It ain't no Glock!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
And no, I'm not a Glock lover. Just a forum instigator...

Accuracy ALWAYS WINS! So carry what you can hit with.
If you find yourself in a fair fight your tactics stink.
That is awesome! However, if you really want to be an iconoclast, you'll mount a scope to it ala Han Solo...
Now that would be stylin'!
Happy New Year,
And here I thought me not getting a Glock 21 cause trying to conceal a Glock 21 would be too much!
Well played Sir. Well played.

I like the shirt. It's just so subtle.

You get one million bonus points for "don't see that everyday" factor. Very cool.

Hmmm… humm… humm. Well, if the mall I’m shopping at gets hit by some disgruntled McDonalds employee; I just hope you’re my back-up to my pithy snub nose.

I agree with your points. It will definitely be an awkward gun to draw from that position.
It does look like it is a totally awesome handgun. I would really enjoy seeing some better photos of the actual gun, and perhaps even a range report about shooting it.
If one wants to have 20 rounds of 9mm handy, a Beretta PX4 Storm with a 20 round magazine, or a Springfield XDm with a 19 round mag, would both be far easier to both carry concealed and draw.
I would definitely lose the shirt in the photos, however, as it draws way too much attention. The front of it looks like something out of one of the "Punisher" vigilante movies.
Congrats on obtaining such a historic and classic gun. Do feel free to post some more photos of the gun itself.
