Curiosity....What handgun do you carry????

Postby OldHoosier62 » Wed Apr 10, 2019 5:22 pm

Doesn't matter....daily, occasionally, whenever?? And if you carry, what holster and belt combo do you use??

Today's carry for me was an old 3in GP-100 Ruger and 2 speedloaders full of 158gr HPSWC loads at about 1250fps. Leather Bianchi crossdraw holster on a new cobra buckle nylon belt (belt has a kydex reinforcing strip to keep it rigid and support the holster.). This is a "walking around" rig for here on the farm, basically for snakes, any coyote that comes within 50yds or so, or my plate rack if I get bored enough. It fulfills it's mission quite well.

Since the IS a knife forum I also carried a pair of Enduras...one in each front pocket and a Vic Tinker.

So, what is everybody else carrying today???

Recently (now that I'm carrying multiple knives :cool: )my wife's Interarms PPK/S... using Craft Holsters IWB cordura holster. Loaded with Remington UMC .88-grain JHP ...as reliable as I've used short of FMJ.

Lightweight and very slim setup!

A Glock Model 36, .45 Auto. I use Ruger .45 ACP ARX 114 grain ammo with a muzzle velocity of 1350 fps. My backup is a Spyderco Manix 2 XL with an average thrust velocity (me) of approximately 1 lb. If both weapons fail to produce the desired results I resort to the pair of New Balance Model 666 I'm wearing which boast an average speed capability rating of TBD (hopefully never)! :D

Most of the time I'm lazy and carry my Glock 43, because it disappears. In colder climates when I wear more layers I carry my S&W M&P 2.0C.

To defend myself in less than polite society, I might carry my Glock 26 for capacity, but my Glock 43 and Walter PPS M2 each give me stealthier options.

To defend myself out where the wild things are, I might carry my Glock 20, but my Dan Wesson 15-2, GP100, and S&W 686-4 each give me additional flat-trajectory options.

We don't have any ccw permits in my town. No carry guns for me.

When I go out to dinner I bring my bodyguard. He's a LEO and can carry off duty.

Sig 365 9mm lately. It has a decent grip for a small gun.

At home I keep a 45ACP S&W N frame revolver by the bed. They like us to keep everything locked up so...

Hard if not impossible for this little Australian to fathom that anyone lives in such an environment shunsui.

I suppose I should mention my bodyguard is a friend of mine who lives across the street.

I no longer live in a place where I can own a gun. Barbarians.

However, I long ago eschewed my 1911's for a Glock 19.

Anymore now a days, I just grab my model 19-3 S&W .357/.38
2.5" barrel.
And, I never carry per se. If I think I need a gun, I just put it in the truck.

Don't carry when I'm in the house, but one of the benefits of living alone is that I can always have a gun either within reach or close enough that I could retrieve it if anyone tried to break in. Also always have one or more knives close at hand. Right now I have a Beretta 92, a Centofante Memory, a red bone Kiwi, a Dyad, a Stretch 2, a Microtech Combat Troodon, and a cheap Colt double edged dagger within reach. When I'm going out, I carry a S&W J-frame, sometimes two of them, a Jester, a Kiwi, and either a Stretch if I'm staying outside of the city, or one of several "three inch class" Spydercos if I'm headed there.

My S&W Shield 40 is on me at all times UNLESS I am at work or at home. At home I have a few other guns that are easily accessible if need be. At work I have whatever pocketknife I have on me, a baseball bat, and a 350 million volt stun gun in my tool bag.

Kahr CW45 is my preferred carry with Wilson Combat compact 1911 mags (flush fit). Aside from this I carry my fullsize 1911 Para USA single stack. Currently looking to pick up a Ruger SP101 in 327 federal.

Depending on the weather and what I'm wearing: Beretta Nano 9mm in a High Noon Mr. Shorty, Beretta Pico .380 in Badger Concealment kydex, or an NAA Sidewinder .22mag in an Alabama Holsters pocket holster. I also have Remora holsters for the Berettas and a kydex holster I bought on Ebay for the Sidewinder.

Always a double thickness leather belt from A&G Custom Gun Leather, unless I'm wearing sweats.

Salt 1 SE and a Tom Krein Cicada, but no gun right now, since I'm at home.

Depending on weather and venue
ccw = Sig P365
open carry = Sig P320
always a knife = police 4, manix 2, or pacific salt
