      Do you guys ever OWB with a long shirt to achieve the CCW effect? I have my permit in case I brandish accidentally, but I want to know what you guys/girls do with large pistols in non-ccw-friendly states.
      I never have but my FIL does this on occasion with his S&W. Though he has always carried his P238 when I'm with him.

      Daily carry... (doesn't fit the poll above.. alloy frame non 1911 )



      It's a bit on the large side. Not too bad in the winter with a jacket, kinda awkward in the summer. Probably will end up with Bersa .380 for summer carry, or if I manage to find a pile of cash laying around an H&K P7

      I didn't vote only because up until a few days ago I carried a 9mm Walther PPQ. Picked this baby up on America's birthday. Going to go back and forth now between the Walther and this for carry duty. Absolutely love this gun.

      Considered by everyone who's held mine as the most comfortable polymer semi auto handgun around.

      The Bersa is a good carry weapon, but the grip design is a bit thick for me. I still carry it on occasion.

      I carry the HK (more capacity) more often than my 1911. MTAC holster for both (different Kydex).

      It's actually not horrible... I used to carry the P2000, but wasn't the biggest fan. I have had the opportunity to shoot the P30 V6 (German Law Enforcement DAO) - I like it a lot more than the P2000. It's a good evolution...

      Now if they would only fix that damn mag release!

      You 3 should really give the PPQ a try if you liked the P30. Just as nice and comfortable, 1/2 the price. Same country of awesome.

      I'm getting used to mine. Half pull until you hear/feel the slight click, focus, shoot.

      It's certainly not a target pistol, but at 21ft it stays well within the circle.
      A friend who's a better shot than me was hitting the bulls-eye with surprising consistency.

      SR9c at the moment.




      In the market for a smaller .380 though as I would like something a little smaller/lighter on these ridiculously hot days. Contemplating the LCP or the TCP.

      Not to fuel the TCP debate and I really like the way the TCP feels in my hand, but this past weekend I rented the lcp and liked it quite a bit. I asked if I could rent a tcp to compare them and the owner said it wouldn't hold up to the abuse of being a rental gun.

      Now I don't know if this was just prejudice against Taurus, but it definitely has me leaning towards the lcp.

      Yea revolvers are all about staging the trigger until you get good with them to the point it is not really needed unless you are trying for great accuracy. I can empty a snubby at 7 yards as fast as I can, and there will be 5 holes in the target. All about practice.

      Long trigger pulls are the name of the game when you are talking double action revolvers.

      I alternate between an XD40 and a Springfield 1911, on occasion I carry around a PF-9 but it hurts like hell to shoot.

      How often do you have to shoot your CCW gun?

      On the bright side, it makes my M&P9's trigger feel positively hair like.

      In 60-90 days I'll be carrying my PPQ, until I find an alternative small piece to accompany it - perhaps an M&P Shield or something.

      The PPQ is fine, but does not conceal very well under light clothing (ie. sandals and t-shirt weather)

      I agree. In the summer I typically wear thin shorts and a belt line length t shirt. If I happen to bend over my gun ends up showing and the shirt will get caught behind the slide. Since CT allows Open Carry I've started not carrying if it happens. Wearing slim fit jeans though is a bit more comfortable since it gives more support for the gun to stay where it is against your body but damn is it tight >.< I hate being fat.

      Glock 23 off duty with a blackhawk serpa holster, S&W M&P 40 on duty. Both weapons fit in the blackhawk holster which help. **** winchester ranger ammo in every weapon I've owned. No issues here. I have been looking for a small framed off duty weapon. I'd like to retain 40cal but in a smaller frame.
