What do you Carry?

I have a CHL and my carry guns are, Glock 21 and also a Springfield XD40SC.

I may trade the Glock 21 for another .45 on a 1911 frame. I would like to find a Colt Commander.

Carry

I carry a Glock 19 in a FIST,INC #42 Holster. It is a cross draw and it cants out of the way when driving. No need to remove it. Just push it back up when you get out of the car.

Fobus

Fobus is a manufacturer of holsters. There polymer holsters were one of the first on the market and are deemed by many to be the best at carry and retention.

No, but how about a pair of Ruger Vaqueros in 357, or a Cimarron SA in

Trigger pull

It's great, not too loose and not too hard. I have nothing but good things to say about the XD's. My dad has the XD .40 and he loves it also. Great shooting gun that comes back on target pretty quick for a .45. In fact I am thinking about selling mine when Springfield comes out with the .45 in the new XDm series.

The Springfield XDM in a 45 acp and the 40 S&W was the pistols I was looking at. They had both of them, XDM 40 was $608 with 2 16 round mags. and the XDM 45 was $561 with 2 13 round mags. Good price for them.

I carry my h&k usp45 compact in a fobus paddle or a general use shoulder holster. Not much variety in holsters for this model, plenty for the 9mm or 40 cal though.

My carry

I carry a Glock 18 in a Don Hume IXB holster of Galco kydex paddle holster, and a Glock 26 in a Galco belt slide holster on my weak side. I used to carry my G19, two mags, pepper spray, handcuffs, and asp baton in a pocket in my son's diaper bag. Off-body carry isn't just for women with purses. Babies really are good for something.

What I carry.

I carry a Sig P220 SAS. It's a .45. I carry it on a belt holster strong side. Sometimes I carry a Walther P99 QA .40 in a Desantis IWB holster. Both pistols fit in that holster. I can't remember the brand of my belt holster and it's smoothed off now.

your right. you probably will catch some shit, but If you don't feel comfortable carring or whatever your reason is.... don't do it. I don't carry EVERYWHERE. I always keep a glock in my truck but only carry on my person a little more than half the time (since half my time is spent in a bar). just kidding. kind of. not really.

How does you wife carry the p226? purse? nice gun.

Yeah she had a purse specially made even... she is an employee of the court so I feel its very important for her to carry. I would carry if the ccw wasnt so damned unattainable here in California. But at least I taught the old lady well enough to feel that shes safe it the shit ever hits the fan
