Favorite C&C pistol

Recommended Posts

I have carried a variety of ccw over the years.

S&W 36 in 38+p, my dress up gun, Kel Tec P32 in 32 ACP, my pocket gun, and Walther PP in 32ACP when I feel sophisticated! The Walther was a German police issue by bought when Interarms was importing them.

Lately I have taken to this belt pouch with the S&W 642 Airweight DA in 38 +p. When all this stay at home stuff started happening, I decided I was going back to daily carry. I am aware of the pouch because it is on my belt, but most folks don't notice it. I have a knife, flashlight, mini first aid kit, a face mask, and a bandanna folded to provide padding for my friend! I call it my going out bag, most times I wear it, but sometimes I just drop it in the console. There is even a slot with a latch to hold my phone which really works well when I am on the Harley.

I have a Shield in 40 that is in a bigger sling bag if I am going for a hike.

I have several other larger handguns, but I prefer the ones I can conceal easier.

I worked part time at an Army Navy store for years, didn't help my bank account too much, but it did help to fill up my gunsafe!

Taurus G2C.  Wife and I both have one.  Nothing fancy but I figure it is good enough to get either one of us killed.

Good explanation, I forget the reasoning behind that. Been years since I carried my 1911, it is a little too big to carry concealed.

The reason many people still carry hammer down is because of revolver rules and "transfer bar safeties"

Many double actions can carry full capacity because of the transfer bar safety. 

Hammer down in picture one. The bar slips down away from the firing pin once the trigger is no longer depressed. 

Image two shows hammer back with transfer bar poised to strike the firing pin.

Picture 3 shows what happens if you let the hammer down slowly and let the trigger out. The transfer bar drops back down so the hammer falls on empty space striking nothing

 

1911 gi models dont have a transfer bar. So hammer down is semi dangerous

I used to always carry without one in the chamber. I had to figure out that the safety only would go up with the hammer back . 

I can understand the bank account shrinking while working at a gun store.

I have 4 g2c's. 2 g3's. And the new g3 compact. I think the g3 compact is better than the g2c....but dang. Those g2c's put in work. Excellent grips. Glock takedown. The trigger safety blade is a problem. But I shrink wrap or band all of mine so they don't snag.

my LCP has got many miles in my pocket, I love my pocket clip, open carry is legal where I live reciprocal CC for some neighboring states, I can carry out or I can drop in my pocket, either way its always there. its unobtrusive and I can stand to carry even on the hottest days. its only been used on occasion for some pesky critters and I hope to keep it that way. I have gotten crap about .380, but I always ask to see theirs.. 8 out of 10 don't carry one for various reasons...so I guess .380 will work just fine.. bird in the hand theory. I figure if someone is far enough away that that isn't enough knock down, they weren't a threat worth shooting.

I just put my m&p shield in a pocket clip holster in my hip pocket or when I'm wearing bibs right in the front pocket, I don't care if its open or the handle shows, I mostly open carry ever since the durpy riots and what not, I think its a good thing to have intire communities let each other know they carry, to prevent people from starting stuff in your area

……..Well,   JD...….I have to say I found your comment very amusing.....given...in my naivety.....I thought the idea   was to "prevent "   that unfortunate occurrence...by having the  small firearm on your person......:)

...and you should  never have sold  that sweet 504...….:rolleyes:

...I love firearm threads...but sadly our  enlightened    Socialist Govt     would be aghast  at the C  and C   setup...….thus I can only offer my opinion on the only firearm    that I have carried ,,,,,,,,,,,,,,...concealed...….:rolleyes:

The Savage   Model 1899     22Hi=Power     Take Down...….Excellent    choice for day pack concealment......and with its 70 grain projectile  drifting right along it is a good choice for a small animal like Red Deer   or Feral Pig etc    Traditional Lyman   Aperture sights...  Its take down features allow  very quick assembly...…..Its recoil is minimal...its  'report '   is not conducive  to serious hearing loss......nor will it attract attention from  the National   Park staff  either...… ..All in all....an ideal    poaching rifle...….And ...most importantly...US  made...;)

Used to carry it whilst  poisoning     Opossums.....

Mike

Watch out Miami. OT is here to shoot retired criminals and catch bull sharks with his bare hands. Also. How do you conceal a shoulder rig in 100° heat? Asking for a friend.

Wear a white suit coat and drive a convertible Ferrari!  It has to be a Bren 10 though!

That's when I use the belt rig the most. Spring winter and fall is the shoulder rig time.

Lately I’ve gone old school packing a Ruger security 6 in .357.  Loaded with nice .38 Lead HP’s. Still like the Dan Wesson the most though.
