    True story and this isnít the first time it has happened. He is armed probably 40-50% of the time and I am armed 100% of the time (including church!) I may put gun in trunk box for Post Office but that is it.
    Five on you beats the h*** out of 15 in the gun safe!

    J-Frame in pocket rules! Don't leave home without it.
    I also carry 100% of the time. I carry a HK P2000 SK LEM and an extra magazine. In the cooler months I have no trouble at all. Then it is either in a holster or in a concealment vest. I often carry a Glock 19 as a back up. Summer I still carry the HK but depending on where I am going and what I am wearing there are times that it may be carried in a fanny pack. On very rare occasions I may carry only a mouse gun in a pocket holster but as said, rarely.

    I am looking into different ways of carry. I currently carry OWB paddle holster, with a shirt covering, or pocket carry.
    The Gould&Goodrich 810 IWB for my Bill Wilson Carry Pistol is most interesting. Top that off with the G&G 860 Flashlight/Mag Case Combo. I would of course fill that with Wilson Combat lo-profile, steel base pad 1911 magazines. I would carry my Sentinel PL3 XTR next to the magazines.

    If you wish to wear concealment vests, and fanny packs, I say "knock yourself out".

    IMO, concealment vests scream gun. Fanny packs, well, here we go in addition to saying "i gotta gun" ;

    FANNY PACK.
    from the urban dictionary
    Definitions:

    A purse tied around the waist with a buckle.
    Wearing the fanny pack is social suicide

    A pouch or other device used to hold items usually worn around the waist. Most often used as an alternative to a man-purse.
    Frank keeps his lube and lipstick in his fanny pack.

    Just another 90's fad. A fat pack worn around the waists of usually gay men.
    What's he hiding in that fanny pack?

    A gross invention of the 1970's in which one would store essential items like:
    hand lotion, credit cards, make up, tampons, sunglasses, band-aids, keys, moist towelettes, a watch, mini-binoculars, polaroid instant film, hard candy, a compact, and, maybe, a rattle for your baby.

    The items would be stored in a pouch that attached to the hips by long interlocking straps, or, in the most horrid circumstance, Velcro.

    I am a semi-auto guy through and through. I had a Taurus revolver once, in fact it was the first hand gun I ever bought. I carried it for a couple of years and then bought a Bersa model 85. I don't have the Bersa anymore, but I have only carried semi-autos ever since.

    And I was reading a book the other day for enjoyment and a character in the book was cleaning his semi-automatic revolvers... Well, there ARE semi-automatic revolvers. Who would have known. Pretty cool.

    Mateba Model 6 Unica

    It rotates the cylinder and cocks the hammer for you. All you have to do is pull the trigger, just like on a pistol.

    Learning something new all the time.

    I've heard of that thing. I kind of wonder what the point of it is (seems like it would have the disadvangates of both the semi-auto and the revolver) but it definitely gets a A on the coolness factor. I wonder if, should it not cycle completely it will work like a standard DA revolver (cocking the hammer and rotating the cylinder when you pull the trigger)? From the first shot description it sounds like it will not.

    I just love fine Italian craftsmanship

    A lot of bodybuilders used to use those packs too, with the pants with no pockets - basically they always looked like they were headed to the gym. I guess their gyms don't have dressing rooms?

    Even the guys in the "Musclehedz" wear them all the time. Maybe they're all packing!
