Chl Do you have one? If so, what do you carry?
 
Figure with all these mass shootings out there. I just wanted to see who carries.

I have a hk usp 357 sig ( hints my name) I been carrying for 7 years.
Next upgrade hk p30!

TnRedNeck721 12-18-2012 05:13 AM

not yet. but think i will carry a Glcok 27.

edit: also thinking about a ruger 380. so i have to guns for when i go different places or wear different styles.

also it’s a CHL in TN as well. all tho i don’t plain on open carrying unless i'm 4 wheeling or camping. and at those times i may carry a glock 22. because if i need to use it it will most likely be because of some animal or something(that may have rabies or that is trying to attack me, so i would like more rounds.) i can’t conceal that gun very well being a smaller guy.(5’8"ish and 120)

Depending on where I am going and what I'm wearing I carry a Glock 30 .45 or a North American Arms .22 Mag <-----don't laugh...I did initially then fell in love that I could throw it in my pocket and not notice it was there. I'm also eyeballing a Springfield XDS

ThatGuy18 12-18-2012 05:23 AM

Getting my license next month hopefully. Have an XDS to carry when I do.

357sig 12-18-2012 05:27 AM

Difference between the xd and the xds?? I had an xd when they first came out. Then sold it and got my hk.

Yes, if you live in Texas and are legally able to obtain one I think you should. I carry a glock 19 with a rmr

Chayes119 12-18-2012 05:43 AM

I carry...been carrying for over 10 years. My gun of choice here lately has been The Judge.

If it was legal to conceal a shotgun in my trousers I would.

i like the S&W governor better, and it holds 6 instead of 5. only thing the judge has over it is the judge can shoot the 2 1/2 and 3” 410 shells when the governor can only shoot the 2 1/2” shells. but their is not much difference between the shells i would rather have one more shot than a linger shell.

Good info, my old man wants one (almost got him one for Christmas). I'll look into the Governor also.

yeah i think it shoots a little better as well. my buddy and his dad have had both. just got the governor not long ago. also i hear/read a lot about the timing on the cylinder on the judge being off and it not firing right. it will “shave” the bullet when it hits the edge of the barrel. i hear and think S&w makes a much better version. S&W will also shoot 45ACP and 45 long colt.

Bodyguard 380 ... appendix carry. I don't carry it all the time (I should). I just haven't found my perfect carry method yet.

If anyone is looking for a good CC book to read... It's called "In The Gravest Extreme" by Massad Ayoob. Awesome book!
It talks about the choices you have to make (when to defend yourself) and the legalities of making that shot (its not as cut & dry as you think)

I might read it again...it's good to refresh!

There are two females on YouTube with real nice holster videos. Different ways females can carry and what type of holsters they use.
Limealife is one of them and I forgot the name of the other one. But I'm sure she will pop up in the same type of video slot

Believe me... I've probably seen them all (including the bra carry).
I already have a couple different IWB (both tuckable and non) holsters but I don't use em. My body mechanics at wy waste-line doesn't give me room to draw easily (hard to explain). I've come to the conclusion that I need cross-draw appendix.

My husband just bought me a kydex IWB that I haven't worn yet. I need to order a good sturdy belt.

Daily (for work), I need to use a Remora (the entire setup needs to be quick on and quick off).

Glock30, bulky but gets the job done.

Well, sorry I wasn't able to help out. But at lease your not one of those females that carry in there purse. Always asked them what would happen if someone snatched your purse from you? Now they have your purse and your gun.

Sold my SIG 239 40cal that I had been carrying. I now carry a FEG PA-63(looks like a Walter PPK) 9x18, a normal 9mm is 9x19. Depending on what I am wearing I also carry my ruger SR9.

Forster46 12-19-2012 03:15 AM

I carry a large maglite and a large knife. All the defense I need.






Plus I'm not quite 21 yet so I can't own a handgun anyway... :(

03TRDtacotrucker 12-19-2012 06:06 AM

Carry a ruger LCP 380 during the summer and a glock 19 9mm during the winter when I can wear a coat and an open holster. Been a CHL holder for little over 3 years.
