Okay. What is everyones everyday carry? The one you feel is most reliable and would not get rid of??
People get rid of guns?
Never. What is your favorite every day carry?
When did this horrible trend start? Is this some kind of sick, twisted joke? Not funny, @FREERAVEN23 !
After years and years of carrying a full size duty gun on and off duty, I tried a
S+W Shield 2.0 w/ two spare 8 round magazines. I love this gun, especially the trigger, and it’s 100% reliable and super accurate, the most accurate out of the box gun I’ve ever owned by far. Just as a bonus it felt like going from carrying an anvil to a feather, in a n82tactical holster I can carry it for 16 hours and forget I have it on, although that is partially because of the holster. Add some speed sights and you have a weapon ready for anything.
Of course when I travel to one of our bigger city’s, other states, or places I just plain consider to to be more dangerous then I carry I full size Springfield Arms XDM w/ a 19 round magazine and 2 spares. The higher danger potential requires the pain of lugging around all the extra weight, I consider it cheap life insurance.
LOL! @DBrogue, are you spreading weird rumors again?
Here’s a thread about what people are carrying right now, @FREERAVEN23, but I bet there are a ton of people who have a wish-list carry guns.
Mine would be the new Sig XCompact
Springfield MILSPEC 1911 in a Crossbreed Supertuck. It’s basically because of muscle memory. Of course, as a nurse I’m limited to when I can carry. On the job is off limits. But, off duty I wear all the time.
Well it depends sometimes I may have 2 on me. The Ruger LC9s is my primary EDC. Most of the time I carry it IWB but if not, then in a pocket holster. In the summer time especially being in the south with the extreme heat I may pocket carry either a Ruger LCP, or a Charter Arms 38 special undercover. Most of the time somewhere also have a Beretta 950B 25 caliber on me as a backup, or the Ruger 380. I another question I have for those who would like to share is what they carry in their car unless it’s has already been covered. I’m just curious if others like myself have a few extra somewhere in the car?
I carry a kahr cw40, usually in my crossbreed super tuck. I like this gun because I can get a full grip, and it’s still slim enough where it conceals very easy, no matter what I’m wearing. Along with a spare mag, pocket knife, flashlight, and small trauma kit, I’m good to go.
It gets a little warm here in the summer so I go with a small pocket gun a sig p238. If I’m anything other than shorts, my go to is my ruger sr9c
Summer here…Sig p365 most of the time. Glock 29 sometimes. Ruger lcr every once in a while, it mostly got the boot from the p365.
Glock43 or Ruger LCR
About to be a Glock G30
Glock 19. I’m boring and vanilla.
I carry a S&W S&W Shield. 40. I fully agree with you about straight out of the box. I upgraded my sights also and carry three 7 round and one in the pipe. I really like the way it shoots and agree about the weight. Good holsters help.
Since I work in a TRE (Target Rich Environment, aka Gun Free Zone, aka Hospital on University Campus), I am at my desk and I am carrying at this very moment:
- Small (2 AAA) utility flashlight
- Tactical Flashlight
- Cell Phone
- 26" Collapsible Baton
- Pepper Spray (gel)
- Stun Gun (direct contact)
- IFAK (w/just the bare essentials)
M&P 45c. I’ve carry it everyday for 3 years. It’s digested thousands of rounds, with only one stovepipe that was Ammo related. It disappears on my in a hybrid holster, and is a great shooter.
I’d like to try it. I really like my Sheild .40 but I like Sig also.
My wish list is the Glock G45 & Ruger Securtiy 9
I trade off between an HK P30 (9mm) and a Springfield XDm 10mm. Depending on where I plan to be. Mostly the P30. I practice regularly with both.
