Springfield XD .45 Tactical
I carry a gun because cops are too heavy!
Take my advice, Don't take my advice!
I carry a KEL-TEC P-3AT it is the lightest .380 Auto pistol ever made.
I should have my SR-9 belted on, what do I really carry? Kel-Tec in .32ACP.
So, if we are suppose to carry one full sized 9mm to .45 plus spare mag, Folder, flashlight, pepper spray ,IWB in leather
Or, a .32 Kel-Tec in pl;astic pancake holster with extended 10 rd magazine and the Delica in the left pocket..
The XD SC9 is recent addition, been carrying it except when I go on my long speed walks, and then it's the Kahr PM9 in pocket.
But I do love wheelguns, too...if that Ruger SP101 had 10 rounds instead of 5, I might not even own any semi-autos!
Two formats for me, heavy duty, its going to be a bad night set.. and light duty, shorts covered with dress shirt..
Works for me..
Glock 27 in a IWB tuckable. Carry a G22 (15 rnds with adapter sleeve) magazine or G27(+1 ext) magazine in the front pocket depending on destination. Occasionally I may front pocket carry the G27.
Laws that forbid the carrying of arms ... disarm only those who are neither inclined nor determined to commit crimes ... they serve rather to encourage than to prevent homicides, for an unarmed man may be attacked with greater confidence than an armed man. Thomas Jefferson
Is that ball ammo I see ? Do you carry any hollow points when considering a through and through shot from a 45 ? My Kinmber is on order.
My carry weapons vary widely. I have a pocket NAA .32, small, but as heavy as Glock 26, which I carry at other times. Depends on which feels lighter that day.
I also have an older Charter Arms Bulldog .44, 3" barrel, Stainless, DA that someone gave me, it's an old style with ho hammer block. I am leaning on carrying it more often as it is lighter and better stopping power (Hornady 180gr JHP/XTP rounds). Problem is finding holsters and dealing with back orders if you do find one.
I also have an early 1970's Ruger Super Blackhawk .44 Magnum, which I do not use as a CCW gun, couldn't hide the 7 1/2" barrel well. I love that old hand cannon....
Have 2 derringers, a .22 Mag and .22LR, don't carry them.
You can never have "too much" ammo...
First post! Just picked up my new Ultra Carry CDP yesterday! After a lot of back and forth between Kimber, Glock, Sig, Para, blah, blah, blah I finally said screw it and stopped thinking about it.
Can't wait to hit the range. Cheers!
First post here also. I have usually carried a Glock 23, I have tried different guns, but always go back to the Glock. Right now I'm carrying a Sig 229 SAS in .40. Already thinking about the Glock 23 again.
First post at this site. P245 in a Fist IWB with Federals or a P228 also with Feds in the Fist.
Well hello newbies Satch, Ryan and sbell. You guys got it going on.
Satch, you are gonna love that CDP. I got a used one [cherry] for $800 and can not be happier. A wonderful carry piece for sure.
Stay armed, stay safe.
PS just to refresh.....I do Ultra Carry CDP, Springer Loaded or BHP.
