    Habits

    Just curious: Does anyone carry their primary weapon(EDC)because of a habit fostered by either Law Enforcement/Security work or military service? I find my EDC, which is either a Glock 19 or 26, IS SO because that combo was my duty/off-duty requirement for years. I carried my 1911's MORE right after RA service because that's what I was used to. Once the old job transitioned from revolvers to the Glocks my 1911's spent more time in the safe. Like to hear if others have developed new favorites because of job experiences. Thanks!!

    I developed the Sig addiction through my job...
    A man fires a rifle for many years, and he goes to war. And afterward he turns the rifle in at the armory, and he believes he's finished with the rifle. But no matter what else he might do with his hands - love a woman, build a house, change his son's diaper - his hands remember the rifle.

    I carried a Glock 23 at first because EVERY LE agency in my area carried Glock, I was a parole officer. I just thought it made sense to carry the same thing. Now it is one of three approved weapons for carry at my agency, the other two being the models 22 and 27.

    Sorry, I just couldn't help myself. Please carry on with the intelligent conversation from here.

    Actually, just the opposite for me. I could not stand the DA/SA transition on my service Beretta M9 pistol trigger. I always manually cocked the hammer on the first shot to get a consistent trigger pull.

    All my civilian pistols have been DAO - much prefer a consistent trigger on every shot. I've settled happily on Glock - a 19 and a 26.
    The more good folks carry guns, the fewer shots the crazies can get off.
