My daughter was accepted into an MBA program in Los Angeles so she has to move down there. I asked her if she wanted to get a CCW (our sheriff is really good about ccws—which are valid throughout the state) but she declined.
However, I’ll likely be visiting and I’m trying to think of differences between carrying in my little cow town and in the big city, especially when considering urban threats and maybe forcing a change in my fightin’ tools.
Like here, the weather is mild so concealment is imperative. I have a choice between my Centennial (pocket carry) and a 1911 (IWB) I don’t know if the police in LA are as reputedly anti 2A as the ones in SF, but “printing” needs to be avoided at all costs or there will be administrative hell to pay. This makes me think pocket carrying the Centennial is what I want.
I don’t want to buy a new pistol (much less hunt for a holster and ammo) and have to “learn” it just for LA trips as time & money are precious right now.
But I may have to.
The weakness of pocket carry is while driving of course but I’m thinking of transferring my Roscoe to the center console or driver’s door when driving.
That might be a good habit anyway.
Just a bunch of idle thoughts right now. I thought I’d ask what your thoughts are on the subject.
