    Funny all mine are range toys.

    I just don't feel at ease carrying a single action. I know I know, it's safe.

    I carry a Smith 642, Glock or Keltec.

    :rofl:

    See, at least you don't have seller's remorse. Was playing with an EMP9 and 40 today. Also got to play with a Guardian. Verrrry nice.

    They had a VBOB at the same table too. Preferred the feel and weight of the VBOB having them side by side.

    A 1911 has two manual safeties. You feel safer carrying a gun with none???

    I always carry a 1911 (I have a few in the carry rotation) except if we're doing the theater thing and I'm going to be seated almost the whole time, then it's a Glock 27 in an ankle holster. Don't tell anyone. :whistling:

    No doubt. They were asking $1,400 for the standard VBOB and $1,900 for the Duty Coat one. I love the KC for a few hundy more. No brainer. :supergrin:

    Currently carrying a P2000 until I get my Brown in. Don't give the HK a moments worry that I've got one in the pipe with no external safety.
     
  16. I'm a product of my training I guess. I consider my Colt Commander a fullsize fighting pistol. One I would carry on duty and into harms way. As much as I love my S&W 442, its a BUG at best and a gun I carry in hopes of avoiding a fight. Personally, I'm a firm believer in carrying all the gun I can. A 1911 gets carried 95% of the time. 2% goes to my S&W 25-13 and 3% is divided between my G19 and S&W 442.
