    You might want to look into having a kydex one made (you could even do it yourself fairly inexpensively if you're handy).

    I carry a Sig Sauer 1911 Ultra. I was trained on and carried the 1911A1 for twenty-four years in the Army and am comfortable with it.
    We thought about it for a long time, "Endeavor to persevere." And when we had thought about it long enough, we declared war on the Union.

  4. 9mm....and cause I bought it for the lady and she don't like the recoil.... I'm getting a 40.. and she's going to increase upper body strength. ...lol true story

    Pretty old thread. Wondering if this guy is still around. Looks like he had more than 1 Nam tour.

    My open carry handgun is the same as my concealed carry.

    The only difference is that I tuck the sweatshirt or sweater BEHIND the holster for OC instead of CC.

    The main advantage of OC over CC is that you can draw and shoot with one hand. You don't need the nonshooting hand to hold up the shirt/sweater/sweatshirt out of the way.

    The other advantage of OC over CC is that you can draw about 1/4th to 1/2 second faster from OC.

    This clearly demonstrates the posters level of firearms training. One handed draw from concealed carry is taught in every quality defensive handgun class run by a respectable firearms training school.

    I open carry a 9mm Glock everyday and everywhere I go.

    My first pistol was a S&W Model 59 9x19.

    One of my older roommates in the frat house had several 9x19's and I liked the feel of them back then in college (just turned 21 -- only a few months of college left to go back then).

    So I went to a gun shop and checked out all their 9x19's.

    Loved the S&W 59 the most. So my birthday present to myself that year was the S&W 59.

    9x19 is a very accurate cartridge. It is an ideal self defense handgun.

    You have to go all the way up to 357 in a revolver to find a more accurate handgun.

    That's a good choice in cartridge.

  11. I normally only open carry on our property or when in the woods.

    Normally open carry either my shield 9mm or my SD9VE. If I'm not hunting, then its a long gun. I prefer the double stack when not covering up.

    My small dog is often/always with me, and there are threats to her.

    There has been open drug related activity in our area of the
    woods, so there could also be threats to me.

    I like open carry in the woods, because it just keeps everyone honest.
    If I come across someone in the woods they can see what they would be facing,
    and if they do try anything its easier to see just what they might be capable of.

    I have had people get close enough to see me and then just wave and head the other way.

    I have lived where I do for almost 20 years, never had any trouble with people.
    But now that dog is always getting herself in trouble...
