Move to AZ as of this month anyone without a prior felony or dmostic abuse can carry a weapon concealed. You gotta love the wild west.

I have a Kimber 1911 from the custom shop that I really like :thumbsup:

Thinking about an compact XD in .40, cheaper ammo, lighter, and easier to conceal. Glock would be good but they run some very good deals on the XD and my buddies is a very good shootr.

Khar cw40
4" XD-40
HK USP 40 compact
Like alot of posts on here, it sorta depends on what i'm wearing that day. Usually the cw40 because of its size. But i preffer the XD or HK. I dont carry any spare mags because im not that affraid of society....yet. Besides something should be done moving in the first 7 rounds.

Glock 27... .40 cal justice in a nice small package, I found I can carry on the center of my back or my side concealed with no issues.

.22,9mm,12Ga but S&W mod 19 and 686 6" in .357 for house and field.

.38 158 Lhp +P FBI for in the house or the Speer 135 JHP +P w/Lazer dot.

125 Speer Gold Dot @ 1450fps Magnum if a real big guy or winter time, which is rated as the #1 load for a one shot stop.

However I do have a 158 @ 1385fps if they are standing two deep................. not for in the house use !!

May want to rethink the small-of-back carry. While it conceals very well, if you fall wrong you could end up paralyzed.

yeah, yeah, i know. how often do people fall, right? Up until last week, I couldn't remember the last time I fell. Then I fell half way down the stairs, landing on my ass and back only because I slowed my descent by catching (and breaking) the rail. That hurt a bit. For what it's worth, I'm 26 and athletic which probably saved me in part from further injury.

I saw this the other day on the best defense as well, and it makes good sense if you think about it.

No Ruger fans on here ?! I been wanting a pistol for a while to carry in the woods, and for home defense. I ended up getting a Ruger sp101 357 mag today. Pretty sweet gun except the ugly plastic inserts in the handle. But I am soon to have stag inserts!

I was carrying a xd 45 for some time and some times switching off with either a glock 21 or 1911, but mostly now I carry a glock 36(45acp) at the animal hospital that I work at, Otherwise I carry a glock 21 or springfield 1911 be it out running around town, or doing whatever.

Heres another addition to my collection. Sig Sauer 1911 C3 compact .45. Picked it up on April fools day. Put 100 rounds through it yesterday without incident. I may have another carry gun after I put a few hundred more rounds downrange. :grooving:

Nice looking Sig. I am a big fan of Hornady Critical Defense (saw in your picture). In our own personal tests, they have the best expansion and perfect amount of penetration IMO...

...on top of that, their POI is very consistent.

Another great gun. I just sent mine to Dan Burwell in Pennsylvania this past Monday for a trigger job. Thats my only complaint with the M&P's. Their triggers suck straight out of the box.

After carrying quite a different variety of concealed weapons over the years (pistols) I must agree with some of the other posts on here. If it is not easy or convenient to carry concealed then we are tempted to sometimes leave our shooting irons at home, in the glove box, in the truck, dresser drawer etc. After experimenting with a pair of Glock 19's for a while, I settled on a matched set of Airweight, hammerless S&W model 642's in .38+P. I carry one in each front pocket in thin Uncle Mikes holsters. When I draw them the holsters ALWAYS remain in my pocket. They fit quite flush and it is almost impossible for anyone to detect that I am carrying. (that's the whole point right?) I carry these two pistols all day, everyday, everywhere I go and sometimes almost forget they are there. Any way.....that is what works for me. By the way, if I feel that this is not enough fire power for the situation I find myself in, there is always the flight option!

I carry a Kahr CW9. Its light and slim but still allows me to get three fings and thumb around it unlike some sub compacts that leave my ring finger hanging.
