    My EDC, works with any outfit. The only time I'm not wearing this rig is when I'm asleep at night, in the shower or in a restricted area (visited rarely).

    -Ruger SP101 2-1/4" .357Mag
    -Uncle Mikes Boot Grips
    -Bianchi Speed Strip
    -11 rounds Hornady 125g .357Mag JHP
    -SmartCarry Medium holster
    -Kershaw Chive



    I've taken the boot grips off since this picture because I didn't like how they fit the gun itself. There were a couple of open gaps that I saw that could potentially lead to a lot of dust and lint getting to the inside parts. The boot grips did have a great feel though and if I become a little less paranoid about my new gun gettin 'dirty' I may switch back eventually.

    I have some Badger boot grips on the way and I've changed ammo so I'll be updating pics within the week hopefully.

    Love this gun. =)

    I'm always interested in how others carry - what's your setup, if you don't mind sharing?

    99% of the time, my XDm9 3.8 Compact is in a Pure Kustom Black Ops Pro, carried at my 3'o-clock. I'm usually T-shirt and jeans, but when I need to wear my more "adult" clothes, as my wife calls them , I find that I can conceal better, at the same location, with either a standard MTAC or CBST. For quickies to the drug-store or gas-station, when I'm in my sweat-pants, I just buckle up a Bianchi duty belt with an ROG IWBDL.

    When I absolutely can't conceal the XDm properly (hey, is that a tumor on your side?), I go to the PM9 in either a D.M. Bullard Pocket Holster or a simple Galco IWB clip-on.

    I'm still working on a better solution for the PM9, as well as a quick-on/quick-off solution for the XDm (so far, I'm thinking the GI Silent Thunder).

    i use to carry a glock 23 in a IWB holster but after carrying for almost a decade i grew tired of dressing for CCW. now i carry an LCP in my back pocket all the time and sometimes leave a 9mm CZ PO-1 or a bigger gun in the car when i go out of town or to places i'm not familiar with.

    These work for me in retirement:
    Year round; in descending order of effectiveness:

    1. Glock 23 Gen.4 with night sights (but very rarely in Summer)
    2. Glock 27 Gen.4 with night sights (My default choice)
    3. S&W 649 (the older .38 Special version) with Crimson Trace LG305 laser grip
    4. S&W 640 (the older .38 Special version) with the smaller Crimson Trace LG405
    5. Kahr P380 with night sights (see below)

    Option No.2 is the most frequently exercised (I'd say 95% of the time).

    That answers the question, I think. Now for the part where the boring old fart pontificates:

    I just acquired a Kahr P380 with night sights which may take 5th. place in the above pecking order should it finally prove itself reliable (once Kahr returns it to me). If so, I'll probably use FMJ for maximum reliability and penetration, that is, if I ever get that far down the batting order.

    I also have a Beretta model 20 and a model 21A in .25 ACP I acquired in the mid-1980's. Although these have been near 100% reliable over all those years, I have yet to resort to carrying these "mousers". In any case they are no more concealable than my new Kahr P380.

    I almost always opt for a DeSantis "Speed Scabbard" or similar type holster under a shirt, but sometimes the revolvers are carried in an inside-the-waistband holster in the "appendix" position, or in a DeSantis front pocket holster. I consider quick accessibility and discretion of ultimate importance, so I have no use for ankle holsters and won't resort to odd clothing that shouts "Gun" to those who know what to look for (i.e. savvy cops and streetwise criminals) .

    Before I retired I was authorized to carry the following at one time or another (always in plainclothes). Some were issued, some personally owned:

    During the revolvers-only era:
    S&W M10 2.5"*
    M19 4"
    M36 2"
    M60 2"
    M66 3"*
    M686 4"
    M649 2"
    *NOT a misprint; these were special editions.

    Once semi-autos were authorized:
    Sig Sauer P225, P226, P228 9mm
    P220 .45ACP
    P229 .40 S&W
    S&W 3913 9mm
    Glock 23 Gen.2, 27Gen.3 .40S&W

    All the above proved reliable with the following rare exceptions:

    My all-time favorite revolver was the 4" M19, but one day on the range the firing pin just fell out of the hammer. The M66 and 686 were special-ordered during an era of abysmal quality control at S&W, and had to be sent back by our armorers and made right.

    The Sig Sauer P220 was an early example with the side button magazine release and had occasional feeding problems. Sig Sauer replaced it free with a new P220 featuring an improved feed ramp angle. The replacement proved totally reliable.
