Yes ol' chap, I often EDC a .455 Webley Mk VI. After my cricket match on the way to afternoon tea I find it quite the sterling & steadfast companion. Pip Pip and Cheerio old Bean. :hand5:
(*sorry mates, it was just the oddest caliber I could think to...lie about! :yup:)
None of my carry calibers are odd, they're all pure genius! And anyone who thinks differently is a chuckle-headed, hamster-brained, know-nothing! :biggrin2:
I have an RIA 1911 in .38 Super and an EAA Witness in 10mm, I tend to use these for "home defense" instead of carry. In my circle of friends who are also shooters one lady uses a couple of .327 Federal Magnum revolvers, a Charter Arms Patriot and a Smith & Wesson, her previous carry gun having been a Police Positive in .32 Police.
Nothing in pistol but I do have a M1 30 Carbine. The only bad thing about "non-popular" ammunition is the cost.
I've got a CZ82 chambered in 9 Makarov on my hip right now.
Thanks all just wondered wish I really had a Webly all joking aside there awesome
I have a young friend who's into old guns and carries a CZ vz. 52 in 7.62 x 25 Tokarev.
I've never fired the tok but heard great things mostly about the accuracy and high velocity I'm kinda a speed freak I guess was looking at a 9x25 dillon kit for my 20 but the cost of dies is keeping me away right now
9mm Mak and .41 mag are the only oddities I've carried.
Somebody check on Ghost Tracker, He may be drinking from the fire water tonight. LOL!!!
and Tokarev in pistol rounds
17HMR [ not that uncommon]
and 45 120 in rifle rounds
None of these are really odd calibers but just not seen at the range every day. DR
So far nobody has mentioned 44 SPL.
I'm carrying a 10mm these days - 165 grain Gold Dot + 1400 fps = 750 fpe - pretty impressive numbers. I like it.
.38 super but it takes a back seat to the .45 ACP. Carried a 2 shot .44 mag derringer as a back up in my other life - then I shot it and went to .44 special. Bullets from both tumbled at 15 feet, the muzzle blast close in would have been horrible.
