Carrying a Beretta again
« on: April 17, 2019, 05:53:15 PM »
I have been carrying a G22 with two spare mags for quite a while now and wanted to change it up. I took out my 92fs Inox converted to 'G' with 18+1 and two 20rd mag spares. I carried it for 3 days and ...

IT IS HEAVY.    Constantly pulling my pants up.

Much heavier then I remember. So, I altered the plan and tried carrying my 92D Compact Type L with 13+1 and two 18rd spare mags. And that turned out to be the perfect weight. It just seems so weird to me as I used to carry a full size Beretta and two 20 round mags for years before the Glocks infected me. I guess I was spoiled by polymer.

I carried a fullsize FS for 3 years straight - many years back. It IS heavy.

I want to carry my NP3 96G Centurion, but usually end up carrying my MiniCougar instead. It has 9 rounds of .40 instead of 14 rounds. The barrel is 3.6 vs 4.3 but the muzzle end is blockier and has sharper edges. I carry a single MecGar 13round magazine for either one. Sometimes I consider carrying either of my PX4s that weigh less, yet carry more ammo, but the metal guns win out 9 times out of 10.
