S&W 642 .38+p or a Glock 30 .45ACP depending on my outfit. I'm surprised to see so many people who carry full sized semi's.

Me too. Well, I am surprised in general of what people actually carry. I know one guy who carries a Glock 17L. Most people I know seem to carry a full size or something similar to a Glock 23 or XD(m) 4.5. I personally can only pull that off during the winter. During summer I have to use the Glock 26. Otherwise, it is obvious that there is a gun under my shirt....at least to me it is.

Has anybody seen the Walther PPS??? That gun is looks very is to conceal. I played with one at a gun shop a month ago or so.

waterfowlman wrote: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!
"If you're gonna be dumb......you had better be tough"


Not for nothin, but isn't the flight option ALWAYS supposed to be your FIRST option? :huh: EVERY single CCC class I have ever attended or show on tv for that matter ALWAYS teach flight first, fight as a last resort. The ones that don't are usually tought by those "tacticool" tools that still think they're in combat.

I carry an XD sub compact .40 when I can and a 3.5" open assist serrated edge knife honed to beyond razor sharp when I can't carry concealed. If you want my wallet or my life and don't have a gun and I can't get away...it's your funeral.

Not all states require a "flight" attempt. Tv shows say try the "flight" option to avoid be sued. In Kentucky you can use deadly force to protect your self or another from unlawful physical force or imminent use of unlawful physical force. No flight attempt is required.

....not that the flight option may not be a good one. It would be stupid to get in a gun fight with multiple assailants. Flight, at times is the safe option, to protect yourself and family.

mccree, I get what you're saying and I understand that state laws vary, but you must admit that some of those state laws are based on OLD laws litterally from the pre-industrial revolution era. Do I disagree with the thought you you shouldn't HAVE to flee? Heck no! If you want to try and do harm to me and my loved ones, like I said...it's your funeral, but the BEST way to avoid having to shoot someone is to remove yourself from the situation if at all possible. If not, then it's game on and the tool in front of me better be a beteer shot than me because if I already have my firearm out (implying the willingness to use it) and they don't cease their aggression, I won't hestitate to drop the hammer. I see a lot of "hard" talk on web forums; guys carrying X number of guns and Y number of knives like their an active duty Navy Seal, all the while, and I guarantee you this, most of those guys have NEVER...EVER been in a situation before that required deadly force or been in combat or have ever God forbid actually had to kill another human being and if it wasn't so sad I would have to laugh. I have carried since I was 21 (legal age in PA to carry) and have always gone about it with the knowledge that I may just have to kill someone, NOT that I could shoot someone. I carry practically, prepared to do what it takes to defend myself, but always knowing that if I ever have to draw my pistol (and I have done this twice in my life), someone could die. I was actually stabbed by a kid back in 1999 that was trying to break into my car and he stuck me with a steak knife in the right calf while there was .40 cal. pistol muzzle 18" from his head the whole time! I just thought he tried to pucnh or push me and I never actually saw the knife. Could I have killed him and been completely justified? Absolutely! But luckilly I took the safe aproach and after realizing I was way too close, through all the adreneIine, I took a couple steps back, the kid finally noticing he was staring at a gun pointed at him. He hit the pavement and I never even knew I was cut till my tennis shoe got all slippery from the blood. Had I have actually seen the knife, I'm not sure what would have happened. I would like to think I would have done the same thing...who knows now...

When I'm not carrying my glock 26, I carry the Wilson Combat. Starting to like 1911 carry more and more. Weight is the only disadvantage over the glock.

Usually a S&W 637 in T-shirt conditions, otherwise a Browning Hi-Power 9mm, Ruger SR1911, or S&W 28.
