Your choice, I am not passing judgement on personal choices, just pointing them out.
No arguments; it is about individual risk assessments and choices. I find myself taking more risks these days. I knew more than a few who may not have had their CCW on them, but nearby. Ironically, General Officers are issued (and mailed) their personal sidearm that they can carry on base if they so choose. Off base, all federal and state regulations apply...

My son (20 years old) has had his CCW for almost two years and he carries at college (and while in ROTC). One State restriction is that if a high-school student is taking one of your college classes, you can't carry...he follows the rules knowing the cost if caught. That restriction makes zero sense to me, but is the type of BS that several have to assess as to compliance or take the risk.

How can you tell if a 1911 is jammed?

It just is.


Haha jk I actually have a tattoo of a 1911 on my calf although I dont even own 1 anymore but I still like them. To me they're more nostalgic than anything. I do want a good all steel compact 9mm 1911 but that is like asking for a unicorn. Everyone wants to make them with an aluminum frame and aluminum has no place on a pistol IMO.

Use what you carry and practice with, and you won't have to switch around. If you have to be quiet about it, as regards survival in a hostile environment, use a pistol and a suppressor. If not, and noise is not a consideration, a revolver is the answer.

For me, the revolver is now my answer...

There are reasons. I train with my CCW, but the focus is practicing from concealed carry. I've found my dress attire does better with smaller, sub-compact pistols.

My more "tactical training" and classes with kit involve a micro chest rig and battle belt with open carry for obvious reason, and I prefer a larger model of handgun (Glock 19 or 17). If my environment was simpler and less complicated, using the exact same handgun is obviously the better choice, I just have different needs and adapt my training around both methods.

Right now I don’t have a truck gun ( ok I have a van not a truck as my work vehicle so a van gun ). That means if I am carrying a single stack 9mm ( walther ) and the **** hits the fan , that’s my gun until I get home to my family. Ideally I’d like an ar15 pistol or maybe a PCC in my van locked up. I have a small safe so I can keep a full size handgun in their if I want.

There are just so few times you need a full size carry gun. Of course you’d want one in those instances. But you’d rather have a rifle or carbine.i think I’d mostly rather have a single stack on my hip and a rifle in the car then just a double stack on the hip. .

A lot of my time with work in the summer is spent in daily travel. If Im driving more than an hour one way, and thats pretty often, Ill throw one of my AR pistols with a chest bag of mags and another handgun in a discrete case in the car, for this very reason. Itll be a long walk home and even though its mostly all "country", I still wouldn't relish it. There arent near as many people here as in the populated areas, but there does seem to be a larger portion of nut jobs in that smaller population. Small gene pool thing I guess.

Ive always carried a full size, and often with a back up. What are these "few" times of which you speak?

I think the point that seems to be lost on so many is, you dont get to pick and choose when things happen, so you either prepare broadly for the worst, and carry the best you can, or compromise, and deal with that too. Either way, its your choice, and you get to deal with it.

If youre unlucky enough to have to need it, are you going to have what you shoot best with you, or are you going to be saying, "boy, I wish Id gone with the other fashion choice today!".
