    I'm starting to carry only my CZ PCR or my CZ Shadowline Compact only AIWB basically the same firearm with the exact manual of arms DA/SA. Heck I'm even thinking of selling my 1911 as its starting to get a lot of shelf time. Why?? Its what I like what I'm comfortable with and that's good enough for me. Every one do what's best for you!!! Oh and your all wrong but me. Especially Graydude.

    Some of his points have merit--for some. His reasoning for his points is faulty. I think his assumption that all are confused with any change is in error. He may have an issue changing guns or carry manner/locations, but that does not equate to all others having those same issues.

    I carry different actions in different calibers on different days. I carry all of them that same way because I am right handed and don't pocket/ankle carry. The rest you can guess.

    Absolutely. If I could find one gun to fit all my carry requirements, I’d be happy. Bored, but happy!

    Define big gun in your opinion ...A double stack 9/40/45 or maybe a single stack 9/40/45 and would you switch up guns from what you normally carry
    to a smaller gun in a smaller caliber or would you carry a medium to small sized gun ( Depending on how you define it).

    If you were to advise me...How would you do it?
    For carry purposes I would try to stay within the same manual of arms. Single or double stack matters not. Big Gun to me is G17 to G21 sized, for example.

    I carry Glocks even though they aren't beautiful and aren't nearly as fun to shoot as many of my 1911s, Sigs, CZs, and HKs. For self-defense purposes I would try to stay in the exact same manual of arms regardless of caliber and size.

    I own a variety of handguns from different manufacturers (S&W, Sig, Colt, Ruger, Kimber, Bersa, Para, Walther) with different manuals of arms. I have used each one as an EDC using different holsters and a variety of different carry positions over the years to find what works best for me. I even went through a phase of carrying different guns for different occasions and/or how I was dressed. Through each gun/holster/carry position combination, I trained 1-2 times a week using 100+ rounds each session. Somehow, no matter what or how I was carrying I never reflexively reached for the wrong place or gun. I do, however, reflexively sweep the 1911 safety of every gun (even the strikers) on the draw.


    Through the years I found myself reaching for my Kimber SIS Ultra (3.5") most often to EDC then talk myself into carrying something else more "appropriate." Finally, I decided to just go with my first choice and EDC the SIS every day. It's just like me...old & comfortable.


    As to the article in question, it's "drivelfluff" designed to make us think the author is an expert.

    All from throwing out a opinion or perspective on something.
    Everyone has opinions, it's just a matter of how it's presented. I can be convinced to change through a well articulated analysis, which it seems the author did. But he also came across as a bit full of himself with the implication others should just do as he says because he's an expert, and that's a flag to me to remain skeptical. He probably just had to make a deadline and get something written, so it didn't get the editing that would have made his position more convincing.

    That's me.

    But the author of the OP's article wouldn't approve. He advocates the largest you can reasonably conceal. Not for me. I'm simply not gonna dress around a gun.

    I carry a S&W 642 in my right front pocket; my EDC for all occasions.

    Interesting article and I agree in theory with much of what he has to say.

    I wish I could carry my Sig P229 AIWB every day, all day, but there are some days I cannot. At least two days a week I operate in an NPE where with what I wear, the Sig is simply not going to work. On those days, I pocket carry my Sig P938, and when I am wearing long pants, I have a G26 on my ankle.

    When I put my hand in my pocket and grip the P938 I know, and have practiced, that I must disengage the pistol from the holster and release the safety once it clears my pocket, if I must draw the pistol. Since neither the P229 nor the Glock have a safety, using either of them is similar enough for me that it does not concern me.

    I believe that consistency in an important factor of preparation. Those who served remember learning by the numbers led to high efficiency through repetition. The practice sealed that learning into our reflex systems until we could execute the task automatically without hesitation or fumbling. We learned through an age old training method that had proven its success in peace and war.

    I CC my EDC at 3:30 and OWB. I always to that. Drawing has become a rote and fast operation for me. I never have to adjust the process of drawing. My hand knows where the gun is, and knows the feel and anatomy of the gun. When I draw the gun my hand is in reliably position for presenting and firing my EDC. Noting changes in the necessary moves including the gun.

    I use 147 gr 9mm Winchester Train and Defend ammo. The training round is the same weight and design as the defensive round. It even has a dimpled bullet nose to achieve aerodynamics similar the JHP defensive round. Why? Consistency. If I load a magazine with a Radom insertion of both round I cannot tell the difference between them whine fired, and the both perform the same at the range. Consistency matters.

    I make no claim to being correct in such matters. I just know what I do is correct for me.

    Pretty much everything is an absolute with the author. My way or you are doing it wrong. Kydex holsters only made by two companies are the only thing that works. We should all be training for warfare with terrorists, and we should be doing this every day. Use the same gun and carry rig everyday whether you are going to the gym, the pool, work, the movie theater, a white tie dinner, or a visit to the nude beach. You never know when or where you are going to have to engage those 5-6 terrorists carrying vest bombs and AK-47s.

    Someone mentioned "hogwash". I think that sums it up well.

    I like the idea of one gun for every single situation. Of course, it's just an idea.
