Thread: What Do You Carry?

  1. What do you carry ? What do I carry ?

    Got the Ohio CCW permit almost 4 years ago but have CC'd for over 40 years (business related.)

    For CC I alternate between a S&W SS Model 60 w/Federal .38 PP loads or a SS PARA Carry 3" -.45cal Federal PP loads. Pachmayr rubber grips on both.

    Both carried in IWB Galco suede crossdraw at 11:00. Both easily concealed in summer with shirt out and in winter with a sweatshirt or pullover. I tried a hard IWB Galco but it was too bulky for me.

    The IWB crossdraw position is easier for me to access in a vehicle, from a seated position in a restaurant, or when walking with a jacket on. I tried a 4:00 position but that didn't work for me as well.

    When working in my detached garage I have either a Colt 1911 5" -.45 or a Browning Hi-Power 9mm in a Fobus paddle OWB. Here in Ohio we seem to be getting more home invasion folks hitting our neighborhoods so I feel forced to do that.

    Sorry for the long answer. Usually when I'm at the range some of the newer guys ask about this same subject so possibly some on here would get a chuckle out of what an old guy uses.

    I carry a S&W Model 36 most of the time plus two speed loaders. Long trips and bad area's it's a Sig P228. I love the Sig, great weapon only issue is it's a little cumbersome to carry. I use a Bianchi Shadow holster to keep it tight on my hip but wearing it all day is tough.
    The "Chief" has a lot of sentimental value and it's a tough little pistol. Smith don't make them like this anymore.

    Taurus 24/7 15 shots of .40! Looking at a Glock 27 with Night Sights, hopefully will be able to afford it soon.

  5. I carry a Bersa Thunder 380

    I'm having issues with an old charge from Maryland so I don't have my CCW in FL yet. I do however keep my M&P 9mm in my home/car/work. I've had a VA CCW and carried a Glock 27 either "Mexican" or in a thunderwear rig when I need better retention.

    Due to my new grip style I don't like Glocks much anymore but, the M&P is a VERY nice replacement. I don't like switching firearms for carry, I just change my method. I also have a renewed faith in the 9mm cartridge for defensive purposes and I prefer more ammo instead of maybe more "punch".

    Well placed shots on multiple BG is more likely to be the case in my enviroment. Please no "spray and pray" comments. ;)

    If you like "more ammo", then the FN 5.7x28 might ge the gun for you. I'm considering picking one up for work. The gun comes with 3 magazines that hold 20 rounds each! I've seen good reviews of the cartridge. Excellent knockdown power and some great loads.

    I'll do my own "field evaluations" once I get the gun in hand. :)

    I have one and love it. I also had one mag converted to a 30 round. Never know when you might need a few extra. The safety is ambetextrous, that is good. Don't know if I would consider carrying it concealed or not yet. Need to get more familiar.....

    depending on what I am wearing, I carry a TZ75 compact 9mm in my front pocket, or a full size EAA Witness .45 or full size Baby Eagle .40 in an in-the-pant holster at the small of my back. I'd have to say the Baby Eagle has the best grip out of any pistol I've held. very accurate as well!
