    This is the second question on that subject, and I think I know what the problem is: Look at the last picture, which is with my back toward the camera; that is the way I carry the Broom (which is much more forward and towards my body's side than on my back). The extra mag is actually on my lower back, and the Broom's grip is forward enough so that it is relatively easy for me to reach. It doesn't look that way in the third picture, however, and the C96 may have actually dropped back a bit between shots -- which is why I am making a proper rock-steady IWB holster for it as we speak.

    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.

    I think it would be pretty slick, but I have only seen this done once, and with a horizontal type carry with a shoulder rig (pics below from: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6molyg5IXBg)

    That seems more a comparison of apples and a 440 ford. Just saying.

    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!

    I like the shirt. It's just so subtle.
    It is surely true that you can lead a horse to water but you can't make them drink. Nor can you make them grateful for your efforts.

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

I wonder how comfortable that is when seated in a chair or car seat?

    I will certainly give you credit for pushing the envelope and carrying a unique gun, however. I have handled broom handle Mausers and they are something else.

    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.
