    Mousegun poll

    Having just read through this excellent thread
    http://www.defensivecarry.com/vbulle...egun-rant.html
    I propose a poll:

    How many actually find that for whatever reason, they end up carrying a mousegun (defined as .380 or less) as their only or primary carry >50% of their carry time?

    This sounds silly, but I can't conceal very well in nice slacks and a button down shirt tucked into said slacks. I had to go to a wedding a couple years ago and carried a Beretta 20 (.25acp) in my back pocket behind a handkerchief, a Kel-Tec p-32 in a Renegade ankle holster, and another Kel-Tec p-32 in a desantis pocket holster. I did it mostly as an experiment and it was quite comfy.

    NO!

    I think my post, and beliefs on the topic are quite clear.

    Wish I could carry my G26 but dress slacks and button down 5 days a week won't allow it. I ankle carry a LCP no one is the wiser.

    I answered no, because hour for hour, I don't carry a mouse gun most of the time. However, because of the no-carry policy at work, and the way I have to dress, 5 days a week I carry a Kel Tec P3AT. It's easier to slip on and off when I'm in and out of the office, and still in work clothes, and very light. If I'm going out for a while in the evening, change clothes, and back to usually a 1911 of some type.

    Weekends, almost never carry a mouse gun.

    Every now and then, I'll only slip my P64 in he pocket...usually it's when running out to the stroe for something quick, etc...otherwise, a G36/P7 is about as small as I carry.

    Not me, 100% of the time I carry is with a .45.

    My Glock-36 is almost always with me...once in a great while I might just take my P-3AT for a quick run to pick up a few groceries, or have it if I'm just out cutting the grass.

    I've actually made the decison the make my two mouseguns; Seecamp .32 and LCP .380 my EDC guns. The larger guns are being put to use as home defense guns. Pocket carry just works so much better for me with my lifestyle and schedule and work carry restrictions.

    For those who still want to knock the .380 as some sort of wimp round, let me tell you what I did last Sunday. A friend and I spent the day shooting outdoors at his parents home in upstate PA.

    I shot a pumpkin with my LCP at about 10 feet, using a 102 gr. .380 Golden Saber. The entrance hole was 9mm, of course, BUT the exit hole was around 27-30 mm!

    NO

    EDC 45. My pocket BUG is a 40. The lightest weight bullet I'll consider is in a 357.

    Okay, I confess. I carry a P-3AT with a belt clip about 50% of the time, and a fair amount of that time I probably wouldn't carry if limited to something larger.

    I only own a mouse gun right now, its only a .25, but I carry it all the time, except when/where prohibited by law or work regulations. Once the money is there, and that maybe sooner than later with overtime season kicking in, I will have a Glock 32 and no mouse gun as I will trade this one off. The plan is to get the 32 and then eventually get the .40 barrel for it.

    I carry a XD9SC and my wife carries a Keltec P-32.

    I'm not going to get into any rants or arguments about "ineffective caliber" or "that's too small for protection" or "you're not a man unless you carry a XXX". We carry what we want and what we shoot best - period.
