Title: What is your favorite carry gun?
Post by: Shipwreck on March 17, 2017, 02:42:18 PM
We may have talked about this before - I know there has been carry gun threads in the past...

But for those that have more than 1 carry gun.... What is your favorite one of them all?

I've gone back to carrying a Beretta 92FS all the time.  Easily my favorite gun.   :rocknroll2:

I carried a 92FS for 3 straight years - several years back. It was nice to carry a fullsize gun.

But with back issues, I can no longer take the weight. My favorite gun is my HK P2000 with the Hogue Jr grip. I've tried other options to replace it, but I like it too much.

M&P Shield, but I hope to adjust to carrying my M&P full size once I find the "right" holster/mag carrier combo.

Dan Wesson Silverback

It is my favorite, but it seems the Sig 938 is going to rack up the most holster time cause it disappears so nicely and I work in peoples homes.  The Wiley Clapp LW Commander is favored for BBQ, but will be supplanted when I get my STI Duty One back from a little road trip I'm plotting.

Last 2 + years,,

 CZ 75 PCR  compact D with TruGlo TFX sights.  Rotation Back up is a CZ 75 BD with TruGlo TFX.  I got a CZ P 01 last fall, but aint ran enough rounds through it yet to suit me  or got the TruGlos on it yet. 

The 20 + years before that,

Beretta 92FS.

The wife carrys a CZ Rami 2075 D.

I love the CZ's. They've proven to be 100% reliable so far, with 1500+ rounds ran through the PCR without a hiccup. Probably the most comfortable auto's Ive ever owned, and certainly the most accurate.

 I will NEVER get rid of my Beretta 92's.  Ive NEVER had a failure on any of mine. 

I really like the choices Im seeing.  Some damn fine sidearms on the list so far.  :thumbsup1:

One of three.............Gen 4 Glock 23, Gen 4 Glock 19, or, more and more, my Glock 43. Before I retired , I carried my G23 exclusively, on duty and off duty, uniform or plain clothes. Since I retired, I find myself more and more toting one of my 9mm Glocks. I can't explain it, I would never have believed it a year or two ago, but it is happening. I really like the 9mm Glocks, ad I have recently obtained a G26, but I have not really warmed up to that yet.

My daughter in law has the SIG 938.

Ive shot it some.  That is a seriously nice pistol.  Accurate as hell, and minimal recoil. Great trigger and sights.

Ready to run right outta the box.

Dont git much better than that.  :thumbsup1:

I've probably carried my NP3 coated Beretta 96G Centurion more than any other, but have been carrying my Beretta MiniCougar a lot since I got it.

Isnt that 327 FM a bit of a hand full in that little LCR? 

My Blackhawk 327 , 5.5 bbl is great, most accurate long range  revolver Ive ever owned. I love it for hunting.  But its a big heavy tank. All noise and no recoil. 

My SP 101, 327  fm - 4.2 bbl  is kinda a hand full on American Eagle 100 grains. The 85's arent too bad.

Do you reload and work up a tamer round?  If so, Whats your favorite  formula for a good SD round.
Title: Re: What is your favorite carry gun?
Post by: Alte Schule on March 22, 2017, 03:27:34 AM
During the last year or so since I picked up the LCR I bet I've tried every .327 Mag & .32 H&R mag round available. For sure the 100 gr. & 115 gr. Speer, the 100 gr Federal and 100 & 130 gr Buffalo Bore rounds are pretty stout coming out of a snub that weighs right at 20 oz when loaded and they are not something I would shoot all day but nevertheless fun to shoot. For me I found that the Captech-Jamison .327 78 gr "pinnacle grade" round nose was a good fit for me. I also like the Buffalo Bore .32 H&R Mag +P 100 gr JHP as well as the .32 Mag Hornaday Critical Defense & .327 Federal Hydra Shok.. I practice mostly with .32 S&W Long and then, when I carry, mix and match what ever I feel like. I have a 3" Ruger LCRx in .38 special and would like to see them release a LCRx 3" in .327 Federal Magnum.
Years ago I got into reloading at the suggestion of a friend but never really got into it as he did and when he moved I lost interest. May get back into one day.

Thanks. Gonna see if I can find some of those for use in the Sp101.   :thumbsup1:  Probably have to order online.

Last year, about this time, I found the .32 Mag Buffalo Bore +P, which I had never seen before, at a gun show. When I first balked at the price of $17 a box the vendor dropped the price to $16 then $15 if I bought 5. Later, when I checked on line, I saw the best price was $18. See now the price has gone up 10 to 20%. Hornady's I found locally. Think I paid right at $16 or $17 a box. Always have two or three loaded when I carry.

At present it's the Shield 45. Occasionally the Beretta Nano. When pocket carry is called for it's the LCP.

My S&W 6906 has now moved to the EDC rotation.  I stripped to frame and smoothed the action, added a 2.5# trigger spring, and I shoot it as well as my PPQ and P30.  But it conceals much better.

It was a S&W 340pd but then I sold that, like an idiot, then it was an M&P shield in .40 which I recently sold.  So back to carrying my Sig C3 which has always been my favorite gun but is a bit bulkier than I would like for an EDC
Title: Re: What is your favorite carry gun?
Post by: DCD327 on June 11, 2017, 11:57:35 AM
Nothing changed here.

Still carry the CZ 75 D compact PCR about 90% of the time.

The other 10% is the backup,, a CZ 75 BD.

To All,

Since I bought it last month, my SOLE daily carry concealed handgun is my 9mm S&W Shield. = I really, really  like this little SA & often forget that it's on my belt, except when I change jeans.
(Plenty of power for self-defense, small, flat & EASY to conceal even under my usual "shirttail out" golf shirt.)

yours, satx

Like I said, I'm still evaluating it.  I like the gun for sure, just haven't decided if I'm going to start carrying it full time or not.  Now that I've got some gear for it I like and have been doing some dry fire I'm pretty comfortable with it.  Need to get back out to the range soon.

It depends on what I'm doing. Most of the time it's one  of  the glock family. Sometimes it's a ar15 pistol.. I pic the glock line over the rest because of high capacity. Now don't get me wrong. I have a lot of older HK USP 45s,  a lot of sig 226 and west German 220s. I do sometimes carry the 1911 line. Some Colts,  I have a custom Remington R1. With those I carry in condition 0. When I shoot the 1911 and reholster I holster with safety on and once in the holster I snick the safty off. Now thats just how i carry it. I know everyelse carries it mostly C1. That's fine too but I don't need to hear C0 is bad. It is if u are not comfortable with it.  But in the end every gun has a specific job.

I'm still carrying the APX.  Last time out I felt pretty good with it so I decided I was going to keep carrying it and dry firing with it.
