Taurus pt111 G2
Have you had any issues with it?
Not a 1. I'm planning to change guide rod and spring as I heard that component can be an issue.
That's good to hear!
CZ P-07 daily, Bersa Thunder .380 for slightly deeper concealment, though to be honest not much difference in printing between them.
AIWB holsters from Rawdog (holster for P-01 heated and reshaped to fit P-07) with my custom yoga mat wedge mod behind at bottom. No discomfort at all, all day carry, every day.
M&P40 (15+1=16), M&P40C (10+1=11), SIG P320 40 Full Size (14+1=15), SIG P320 40 Compact (13+1=14).
I love my 1911s, but prefer to carry one or more of the above most of the time.
I need to give one of those P320's a shot one of these days.
I carry several, but most frequently I carry:
DW ECO .45
S&W 627 2.6" PC
S&W 686 2.5"
Colt DE 10mm
EB Kobra Carry .45
DW Specialist 9mm/.38 Super
Glock 43 (motorcycle)
S&W 60 (motorcycle)
S&W 66 2.5
Above is my 686 no dash 2.5"
Just added a Ruger LC9 to my mix
Rotate between a Ruger SR9 and a Diamondback FS9.
Carried OWB in pancake holsters. DeSantis Speed Scabbard or Galco FLETCH.
Glock 26 and Glock 33
Colt series 70 combat commander..Always true..8 Rnd mag. Has been my carry on. Duty and off duty..( Armed Security Guard 16 years) Learned to use it in the Navy..Will never change..That 45 acp really ruins their day..Some people carry light weight for comfort..I carry this piece iron for comfort too..
I found an original stainless Ruger security six. That ,I think is the best revolver for the money paid..My wife loves it
Taurus .380 , little holster fits in my pocket without printing. 1500 fps extreme hollow point from liberty.
When my family goes out shooting I have all kinds of help loading them in the truck. But when we get home I carrying all of them alone back into the house. So I would have to say 'all of them'.
I need to "exercise" more of my guns.
Because I have my "favorites" - there are some that haven't been out of the safe in years.
When you are shooting without using the sights [from a pocket or from the hip], The thing you have to practice is focusing your concentration on one spot. pick a spot on the target. [ When I miss its usually because my eyes wander to where I hit instead of staying focused on that spot!]
It works like pointing your finger. You don't have to see your finger to know where its pointing. You just have to know where you want to point! DR
I pretty much always pocket carry. I learned a long time ago that if I was carrying a full sized gun as soon as I get home it ends up either on the counter or in a drawer.
But the pocket guns just stay with me all day!
Two of my favorites are the Walther PP [ PPK's bigger brother] and the Beretta 70. They are both 8 + 1 guns. which gets me pretty close to Ca's 10 round limit in a pocket size gun.
In Aug I had a couple of shoulder surgerys, And needed a carry gun that I could shoot one handed and with my weak hand. So I picked up a S&W 642. It took me awhile to learn to shoot it well, But now that I've got it down I may not go back! It rides in a front jeans pocket so much better than the Semi's did.
With the semi's I had to be careful to buy jeans with deep enough pockets. The 642 does not have that problem. It's happy in most any pocket.
I carry it with 148 gr lead wad cutters at about 800 fps. They seem to cut a full caliber hole through anything I have shot! And are not a high recoiling round. Once my arm has recovered I may switch to 158 grain at the same speed.
For a reload I carry 130 grain round nose bullets because they are easiest to guide into the chambers without looking.
I really like this gun. The only change I would make would be to loose the lock.[ But I am in CA!] DR
I'll have to give that a shot. More often than not my Glock 19 or 1911 stay home in favor of my Ruger LCP 2.
