I would like to have a poll on this topic.
What do you choose for carry:
2. 1911 or other single stack
3. High capacity with 9mm or .40
4. High capacity with .45
I was shopping yesterday and found a nice 1911 CCO. I thought about how nice it would carry (and it was thin!) but it was only 6+1 rounds. As the day went on I considered it more and decided to post it here.
There have been multiple caliber debates of capacity, penetration, energy, and several on platform or brand. Thats not my goal here.
Key factors shine through in choosing and carrying a handgun.
1. Choose one you will carry (all the time.)
2. Shot placement.
3. Carry what you shoot well.
4. Your rig- holster & belt make a difference.
As I was considering this nice STI pistol, the thought occurred, well if I wanted another gun to carry instead of a range buddy, maybe a XD .45 compact. ie. caliber + capacity. I wanted to see what thoughts the group has on the topic.
To date, my evolved choice has brought me to carry a Glock 23 with 165gr GoldDots in a crossbreed super tuck. How about you?
