Nothing right now. Just got my CCW a few weeks ago. Sold my G17 and Kel-tec P11. Now, I'm looking at the G27. This will be my 3rd Glock to own.

Primary carry is a G19 but will use a Colt Mustang .380 on occasion.

I voted "auto" because that's my main carry. But I also sometimes carry a .38 J-frame S&W instead.

EDC is a Taurus 650 (appendix carry in cheap uncle mike holster)

I'll soon be replacing it with a Ruger LCR or Smith 342PD.

I'll occasionally carry G19 in an MTAC.

Extra ammo for all guns stays in the truck.

A G19 in an MTAC is a warrior's setup. Excellent

The SHOT ShowCase

Shoots anything... rocks, shot, salt... I'm partial to a load of pea-gravel and old .22 shells over 1 3/4 teaspoons of ffg BP. Components are cheap and everywhere...

Just watched Ayoob's lecture on firepower... interesting. He recommends jacketed hollow point in .45 in cold weather and 9mm jacketed hollow point in warm weather due to the heavy clothing factor... it clogs the hollow point and gives you a hardball round... so bigger is better when it's cold out? There was some comments on the Glaser rounds and other high tech rounds as being 'iffy' at times.

I am still playing around with a bunch....

Walther P99 .40
Springfield XD .40
Glock 30 .45
Glock 26 9mm
HK P7M8 9mm

I have a whack of other pistols to play with but these are what I am currently considering and haven't made up my mind quite yet. Despite my concerns about safety with carrying the Glocks with one in the tube in deep concealment I will carry them OWB with one in the tube (i.e. cocked and unlocked). That may be the way I ultimately go....OWB with the Glocks in 9mm and .45 depending on weather; both for concealment purposes and for effectiveness purposes (i.e. .45 in the cold weather because I can hide it better and because it is a more effective round through heavy clothing. I have both set to take ten rounds and carry a double mag pouch for a total of thirty rounds available). BUT, the jury is still out. I am somewhat concerned that should I have an 'incident' I will forget to remove my finger from the trigger guard while reholstering. I know a couple of well trained, smart, ordinary guys that managed to ND themselves over the years. One made a mess of his foot. The other, somehow, managed to mess up his hand to the extent that it is almost unusable. So I don't care what anyone says... if two highly trained, smart as a cracker, bright guys can do it to themselves... so can I. If you think otherwise you are fooling yourself. That's why I want the safest handgun possible for concealed carry. I would prefer at least one if not two 'active' safeties... such as a grip safety or squeeze cocker plus perhaps a thumb safety. At least one of the two anyway... so when my head is spinning and I try to stuff the gun back into the holster to avoid being shot by the LEO's arriving on scene I don't do a Daffy Duck and shoot myself in the leg or crown jewels. On the other hand, after participating in IPSC/IDPA for the past year or so, I can definitely say that with rushing adrenaline it takes time to make sure that you have a solid grip to deactivate the grip safety and it takes time to flip that thumb safety and remember to do it.... and therefore your circle of fear needs to be 21 feet. Anyone that's taken force on force training will have had the unpleasant experience of being disarmed from within that circle and, trust me, it CAN be done and that's why you need to practice getting your gun out and active as rapidly as possible. You should be practicing at least once or twice a week for fifteen or twenty minutes with an EMPTY gun (no magazine and absolutely empty and proven safe). All it takes to make your gun useless? For a revolver the bad guy needs only grip the cylinder to prevent it turning. For a semi auto all it takes is the slide pushed back a quarter inch to take it out of battery. You may as well be holding a banana.

Anyone carrying for self defense needs to watch Ayoobs "Judicious Use of Lethal Force" video. Laws do vary from state to state but the basis is similar and you really need a whole lot more than they taught you at the range in order to make a proper decision as to when lethal force is called for.

I use Federal Premium Hollow Point LE Rounds or Gold Dots in +P to get them moving; it is important to have your round terminate in your assailant and not do a thru and thru hitting some innocent bystander - so keep that in mind as well when selecting your round based on your firearm and the weather. I load the heavier rounds in colder weather to compensate for heavy clothing and the lighter rounds in warm weather to ensure that my rounds don't go bounding around off the pavement and walls.

What do you carry? It's a good question and part of my answer would be anything is better than nothing. And never bring a knife to a gunfight. And know what you are doing and practice... it is not the same as target shooting. If all you are doing is target shooting you can expect less than one third of your rounds to have any chance of hitting their intended target under stress and in motion. Whatever you carry... train, train, train. And remember that you can be disarmed or fatally injured from 21 feet away, even if you manage to draw and stop your assailant en route to your jugular. Have a plan set up with your family even if it scares the crap out of them... it is important. Have a key word like "cover" which means get the hell out of here and seek cover immediately with the kids while you move in the other direction. And "headsup" spoken in a loud and serious voice to mean there may be trouble brewing and be ready. It's not just the gun, the round or the video you watched last year... it is about being prepared and training all the time. And not having to go looking for where you put your firearm when you need it.\\

Be safe out there.
