And Do You Carry?
Periodically carry M&P 45 or S&W Air Weight 38+P
Also carry a Cold Steel Spartan knife...check it out, it is a very nice knife
Lifetime permit. Unless I commit a felony, of course.
Full size Springfield National Match 1911-A1 .45 with Charter Arms .38 Undercover back up. I wear lots of loose fitting shirts.
Cold Steel (spelling?) Tylite 4". Comes out of pocket open. If they have a knife it slows them down til I can draw. Hopefully they are at least 15 feet away.
Thank God I have never had to unholster.
I have thought about getting mine for the following reasons:
1) I would feel better when out riding my road bike.
2) It would then be legal for me to keep my handgun in my backpack when I go bow hunting. In my state it is supposed to be unloaded in a dedicated case (while traveling in a motorized vehicle). Kind of a pain. Would be much easier to just throw it in the backpack.
Yes and always unless going to the court house etc.
Just joined this forum today. Saw this and feel right at home.
I have carried most of my adult life. A look at my online "handle" should let you know I am a gun enthusiast. I started shooting action pistol competitions as my kids got old enough that I wasn't coaching 2 or 3 little league teams at a time. Have done so for a decade. Sadly I have gotten burned out on it the last couple of years. Still fun, and my 3 sons shoot with me a good bit, but looking for a new challenge/change.
My oldest son graduated from college last year and started playing golf with his buddies. He wanted me to give it a try. Now 2 of my sons and I are hooked. We are all terrible, but enjoying trying to learn the game.
So, as to carrying. If you think you should sometimes, you should all the time, law and employment allowed.
Think of carrying like wearing your seat belt when you are in a car. You wear the seat belt all the time, b/c you never know when you will have a wreck.
My buddy has a .380. I believe it is very similar to your LC9. He likes it a lot.
