I've been wanting a cheap little 22 pistol to carry on the tractor for plinking or to slip into a back pocket when I go out poking around. I don't want to use my G29 for popping at the birds that are eating my cherries or that rascal groundhog getting fat off my chestnuts. So I've been kicking around the idea of a small Ruger or Beretta,
I walked into a gun shop and the guy behind the counter said, "Take a look at this!" and placed a Phoenix in my hand.
"No way," I said, "None of that junk for me."
But it was stuck to my hand - I could not put it down. I figured for $150 I could get that much fun tinkering with it, trying to make it run.
Well, guess what? It has feed and fired every 22LR cartridge I have put in it! The Grackles are showing a new respect for my fruit trees.
But how to carry this thing? A weak side holster? A OWB on a spare belt so I can strap it on over my EDC? Or just rely on the hip pocket?
I was picking up a few things at Lowes and came down the aisle where they display the tool bags and pouches and this thing caught my eye. Less than 10 bucks!
The more I carry this Lowes holster the more I like it. There is even a slot behind the gun for my phone.
Soooo....it got me wondering....how do other people carry an additional plinker? Got ideas, pictures?
