Pocket carrying a S&W Centennial in a Bianchi 152 works very well for me. With a speed loader (HKS or QuickLoad) I’ve been able to keep things simple, light weight and convenient, so I’m asking myself if I need another holster (IWB or OWB) and why, exactly? Another option for carrying, but an option I haven’t really missed having over the past two years. It would provide a faster draw but not as fast as drawing from the pocket with the Centennial already discreetly in my hand.
I’ve also added a second firearm to my permit—a .45 Government Model. I’m considering upgrading my holster----a Bianchi Black Widow which has become pretty soft and worn, with either an OWB Wilson or Milt Sparks and maybe 8 round magazines after a period of testing to gain confidence in them. I already have a gun belt.
The 1911 represents a considerably more gear oriented rig than the simple Centennial and my reason for adding it to my CCW is that it is the only other handgun I have suitable for carrying so at least having that as a legal option seems prudent and I’m comfortable with Miss Slabsides as I carried her well over two decades ago when I was with the SO— also more hammered (far more hammered) examples were still in the inventory when I served in the Army Reserve. I have quite a bit of range ammo for training and thankfully three boxes of Winchester JHPs (from when Walmart abandoned handgun ammo) for carry
So what I’m interested in knowing is, what haven’t I taken into consideration in assembling this new and hopefully improved CCW battery? Have I overlooked anything either for the Centennial or the 1911?
