No flames. Just simply stating that you are wrong.

Because I have the means to do so. Sorry about your luck.

Check you scales...weighs no where near that. It is slimmer than my issued Glock.

I reside in east central FL where it is often closer to 100 than 90 during the July and August months. My usual off-duty attire during the summer months is cargo shorts, and an untucked (not oversized) polo shirt. I very comfortably and adequately conceal a 5 inch Government Model in an leather inside the waistband holster from 5 Shot Leather, backed up on the support side by at least 1 additionalmagazine and a C2 Taser.

Oh...BTW...found this quote by you in a thread you started:

When I spend $2k or more on a custom gun, I expect it to be devoid of sharp edges. Perhaps you allowed some rookie gunsmith to take advantage of you on a dehorning job? I have carried the rig described above during my off-duty hour for years.

Is it 14, 10 or 12 pounds? Damn fad diets....the weight really fluctuates.

Nice choice again.
I like big bullets, so I carry them. The extra expense of .45 over 9mm or .40 doesn't bother me. AT work, because I have to, I carry a .40 pistol. Off-duty, I may ocassional switch from a 1911 to a Browning Hi-Power stoked with a proven 9mm round. By your logic the whole world shoould be carrying just one caliber.

But I think that we already established that I do carry it.

Based on your rant, that is like Hitler saying "Don't get me wrong, I love the Jews."

True, you could afford a computer and yet you post your opinion which is still worth exactly what we have paid for it.

So nobody should own a Corvette, or a Ferarri, unless they are a competitive racer picked up by a major sponsor....buying one is a dumb ass purchase?
