    Shooting gallery & pocket guns

    They did a show on pocket guns, namely the LC and CR. The Roger guy discussed the guns briefly, however, the part on shooting the guns and the tactics used for actual self defense situations are well worth watching.
    The instructor said he carried a LCP as a deep concealment, and as a BUG when carrying a larger gun. The difference is strong side pocket on concealed carry and weak side pocket when it is a BUG.
    Now, this is NOT to start a debate about mouse guns and/or caliber, but a good show on pocket guns in general.

    Wink

    Is that the show where Michael Bain said that all of us 1911 guys really just carry lil' ol' .380 pocket guns in the summer time with our shorts and (yuk) Hawaiian shirts?

    Sorry Michael. In the Summer I still carry a full size firearm with shorts that take a good gun belt and I cover it all up with an untucked T-Shirt.

    BTW: I really like Michael Bain. Good Man. But, he pegged some of us wrong.

    P.S. That Hawaiian shirt you had on was really hideous looking Michael. You could stop a bad guy just by having him look at that shirt in bright sunlight.

    Pocket guns

    The instructor was from Gunsite Ranch.
    He also avocated double tap with ANY gun. He also avocated instead of carrying a spare mag, carry a spare pocket gun. This ables one to put 12 shots into the BG, thus being sure his threat is neutralized.
    It was on the outdoor channel/

    and, if you watched closely enough there was one clip during the episode where only one shot was fired, and you could plainly see the LCP had a malfunction with the slide hanging back.... I thought they may have left that little quick subliminal image in the viewer's mind intentionally....since, after all the LCP does have a "slide lock" that the P3AT doesn't have

    Yeah, I caught the slide lock mistake too. I thought it was an editing error.

    I have 6 holsters for my P3AT 2 pocket and the others well that is my business.

    Point is you don't have to ware crazy looking clothes to carry this size pistol in the Summer time.

    Ed Head also said that you couldn't pocket carry a Ruger LCR, but he'd be hard pressed to see it when I pocket carry my wife's in a pair of 7 pocket hiker pants from Cabela's. The bellows pockets with the extra front pocket over them make it impossible to see any printing.

    Anyone else think that Ed Head looks and sounds a little like Tim Conway? Great show. I try not to miss it.
