Living just 50 miles from Minneapolis, I tinkered with the idea of carrying a gun that carried 16 rounds of 9mm (including the one in the chamber). Yesterday, however, I traveled to Minneapolis and
probably out of habit, put a 5" 1911 in a shoulder holster but added a 3" 1911 on my hip. 1911's are a hard habit to break.
I haven't changed anything locally. But we have traveled out of state twice in the last 4 weeks. I carried my usual EDC and a spare mag, but I also took an extra handgun and spare mag for my wife, as well. You just never know.
My carry philosophy is: Of the concealable pistols I own, carry one I would prefer in hand if I had to defend myself.
There is nowhere I would prefer to defend my life a 38 snub/LCP rather than a Glock 19/23 (or 1911) and I carry accordingly.
Someone suggested a poll in the the thread with the same topic. I’ve never set up a poll in a forum before so I thought I’d give it a try & did my best to list what most of us EDC. Thanks for participating :smile:
I have been on the fence a long time about joining a self defense legal defense program (CCW Insurance). The chance of drawing my EDC to defend my life or my family seems extremely remote but tonight I joined the Armed Citizen's Legal Defense Network (ACLDN).
The membership cost is $135 for the...
Small, medium, large, 40 S&W Glock trio.
Glock 23 either AIWB or strong side, minimum carry, easily concealed.
Glock 22 either AIWB or strong side, preferred carry, not unduly hard to conceal.
