    I have only been carrying one year, and all my pistols were purchased within the last year for that purpose... well, almost all of them. Bunker

    Depends on the time of year - all of my carry guns run from less than a year to 58 years for my Chiefs Special.
    Its a shame that youth is wasted on the young.

    my chiefs special is about 45 years young. it works perfectly. you need a higher age category in the poll answers! i had to say "black powder", which it definitely isn't.

    My normal EDC is less than a year old... Glock 23...

    My other is a Ruger P89DC...I bought it from a friend in 1999...he had it for a few years, so I'm guessing its about 14 - 20 years old...

    Most of my carry guns are 10 years old or less - 1 was purchased in 2011. Occassionally, I carry my Grandfather's duty .38 which is at least 80 years old, probably older.

    What I Like To Carry

    I purchased my Walther PP (used) in 1968 and have found out it was made in 1931, so about 80 years. It still is a great gun!

    Be Safe!

    One was made in 2009, the other in the early 1970s.
    The preceding post may contain sarcasm; it's just better that way. However, it is still intended with construction and with the Love of my L-rd Y'shua.
