    Our favorite outdoor range - 10 position, pit toilets, no water, 20 miles away, and NOBODY there! IE, no waiting....The backstop is about 800 feet high, and kinda natural....;)



    I\'ll take the camera to our next outing.....

    I carry a .40 caliber Glock 22 every day in a C-TAC holster. I usually wear jeans, a tucked in t-shirt, then the holster (with a belt, of course), and an untucked button shirt with some type of design on it, usually from Old Navy or some such store. It completely vanishes.

    From time to time, I will wear a tucked in polo shirt, and it still vanishes. The only \"problem,\" so to speak, would be that you can then see the clips attaching to the belt. Most would never notice, of course.

    I tote a Kimber Classic Gold Match modified for carry/or a Kimber Custom/STI Trojan (9mm) in a Brommeland MaxConVI. All my 1911\'s are 5\" all steel guns. I came to this thru trial and error. Tried smaller guns and just didnt like them as much. Also, staying w full size 1911\'s keeps my gear and accessories interchangable, except for mags for the 9mm Trojan. When my wife left her job to stay home w our kids, I figured I could get everything done I needed to do w the full size guns I had, so I sold off my others, along w the mags and leather. It really kinda made my life easier.
    Another factor that contributed to this decision was a phenomena I noticed at the classes I was taking. First day of class, folks show up w a pistol w the barrel so short the front and rear sights touch and the grip so short that only 2 fingers fit. Second morning, same folks arrive at line w a full size version of whatever gun they had yesterday. There\'s gotta be a reason for that. And I\'ve got my theories.

    Bumper, that\'s the little known, hard to find, primitive and cheap Tucson Mountain Park range, on the south side of the Tucson Mountain Park, a nice public park. Pit toilets and no water on site, but never full. $4 a person to shoot all day, too...:)

    I carry my full size grip 4\" barrel Nighthawk 1911 always. My previous carry was a S&W 629 in .44 with 3\" nose. For it\'s size it was a great carry.

    Beretta 92fs, strong side Safariland leather pancake in winter, and IWB in summer. I have also carried a full size 1911 and Glock 22. I just don\'t care for compact guns.

    I like those kinds of ranges. If my buddy moves down that way I may have to go down and check it out. :)

    I carry a CZ 52. Old but very reliable and extremely powerful and accurate.

    I carry a FN Five-seveN which has a 4.75\" barrel. It is definitely considered a full size weapon even though it only weighs 26 oz. loaded with 20 rounds.

    P99 9mm or .40 (not as \"full size\" as some) C-Tac or strong side in a roto holster.
