.38 Spl

I carry a 1987 Smith & Wesson Model 36 snub nose loaded with 5 Federal 125gr Nyclad Hollow points with 5 more in my pocket on a Bianchi speed strip. My gun is at the ready at right hip in my Fobus (yes Fobus) non baton twirling model.

If at first you don't succeed, switch to burst fire mode!!

H&K USP40 compact in a Galco IWB holster most of the time, but occasionally I'll break out the Kimber CustomII 1911.

I can't legally carry in my state but I can in my house. Which so far has been: Colt Delta Elite in a UM plastic IWB holster. From that experiance I've decided that my "real" carry rig will be a CZ 75B Compact in custom IWB leather by Eric. Holster is being made. Still scrounging money for the gun. I do have a full size 75B that I will use around the house.

Dan Wesson "Razorback" Serial # 004 - 10mm - series 70 - 1911.

Teddy Jacobson's " Street Reliability Package" modifications.

Ammo = Doubletaps 155 - 165 grain JHP.

Holster - Milt Sparks Versa Max -2.

For me this is it. Powerful - functional - Ascetically pleasing.

This is my duty weapon as well as my personal carry.

This is my rifle. There are many like it, but this one is mine. My rifle is my best friend, it is my life. I must master itas i master my life.Without me my rifle is useless, without my rifle i am useless. I must fire my rifle true. I must shoot straighter than my enemy who is trying to kill me. I must shoot him before he shoots me. I Will. Before God i swear this creed. My rifle and myself are defenders of my country. We are masters of our enemy. We are saviours of my life. So be it until there is no enemy, but peace. Amen.

Being the HK snob that I am, I carry either an HK P7M8 or a USP .45 compact.

I carry the P7 in a Del Fatti IWB holster. If the britches I'm wearing are too small to accomodate an IWB, or I have been too pigish at the dinner table, I carry my USP in a belt holster from Desantis.

I prefer to carry the P7 as it just disappears on my hip under a simple t-shirt. With the USP, I have to wear a bit more to properly cover it up.

Kel-Tec P-3AT in a K&D pocket holster all the time, spare mag with +1 extension, both carrying 7 rounds of Speer Gold Dot. (May soon evaluate and swap for Golden Saber.)

When the occasion/dress calls for/allows for it: EAA Witness 9mm, 16+1 Glaser +P/Speer Gold Dot +P mix. 16 more Gold Dots in spare mag. Carried in Don Hume OWB.

<-- The name says it all.

Right now, the only carry weapon I own:

EAA Windicator .38 Spl. 2".
6 rounds Hornady Custom HP/XTP.
6 more in right front pocket in HKS DS-A speedloader.
Typically use Uncle Mike's Super Belt Slide nylon holster (pancake-style OWB w/ thumb-break) with polo or Hawaiian shirt.
Occasionally use UM open-top suede IWB holster, if just wearing a loose t-shirt.
For at the range, standard UM Cordura hip holster.

Saving up for a Bersa Thunder .380 ACP for easier concealment, probably with an IWB and pancake-style OWB holsters.

Also considering a 1911 for winter weather when it will be easier to conceal with my leather jacket or baggy sweatshirt with a pancake-style OWB holster.
Sure, you can have my gun...BULLETS FIRST!

Kel-Tec P-32 Always.
Taurus PT-145 Millennium Pro for serious social occasions.
Violence is an ugly thing, but not the ugliest of things. The decayed and degraded state of moral and valorous feeling which believes that nothing is worth violence is much worse. Those who have nothing for which they are willing to fight; nothing they care about more than their own personal safety; are miserable creatures who have no chance of being free, unless made and kept so by the exertions of those better than themselves.

S&W 296 with 180grain Hornady XTPs in a Kramer thin horsehide pocket holster in front or rear pockets. 22oz loaded with holster! OR for lighter carry 1979 Colt Agent , Sadowski tuned and bobbed with 158grain Remington +P LHP, in a Kramer Pocket holster same positions(18oz loaded and holstered). Heavier armed: BOTH of the above on a Galco Jackass shoulder rig. OR a Lightweight Colt Officers model with 230grain Ranger Talon ammo in a Galco SOB Rig(34oz loaded and holstered-damn them big bullets!). Anything heavier demands a dedicated belt rig BUT THEY CAN be concealed too -of course.
