Re: Full-sized autos for CCW.

NIGHTSIGHT, seems you have a kinda of a thing about a real gun fight in your AO. I think the thread was about casual carry. I dont know where you live but your post reminds me of some bad places.

Can't be overstated or stated enough, as I recently discovered. I received a Rosen ARG Express (Gov't 1911) as an early Christmas gift. After a little thought I decided to just quit messin' around, being cheap etc., and ordered a Rosen tapered belt for it. While I was waiting for delivery I tried out the holster and gun with what I considered a fairly sturdy belt. It worked out well enough, I thought, until the Rosen belt arrived (4 week turn). Wow. What a difference. With enough belt loops and the right trousers (even shorts) this rig holds my 1911 TIGHT, enough so that under a T-shirt it just won't print easily. I mean I have to bend forward hard for it to show. I expected it to work but not like this.

I think it was Kevin who once stated that he'd rather have a less expensive gun and a better belt/holster rig, money being the same. Good advice.

'AO.' Would that be, 'Area of Operation'? Other than carrying a full-size auto, (a rather dull subject) what this thread is about remains, pretty much, within the respondent's purview. If EDC - and, especially, EDC of a full-sized semiautomatic - were all about being casual, I am positive I would NOT make the effort to do it everyday.

As for the, 'real thing' part of your reply? That's very astute of you. In fact, if I were to tell you (and everyone else) about our experiences since moving to Pennsylvania 13 years ago, I strongly suspect the account would come across as internet BS.

(So, I'll spare the both of us from the retelling. Suffice it to say that, other than just one single home invasion, we've found Pennsylvania to be far more dangerous than anything we previously experienced during more than 30 years of living in New Jersey.)

Re: Full-sized autos for CCW.

I carry at times either my G21 or a full size SA 1911 pistol, in the cooler weather I use shoulder holster's for them & in the warmer weather, I generaly use a IWB for them, both way's are comfortable to carry these full size guns.

Re: Full-sized autos for CCW.

I am a believer in carying a full size semi auto for CCW. I find them much easier to shoot than smaller pistols. If and when I have to use one for self defense, I would prefer to be shooting a full size pistol instead of a mousegun.

I ran across an applicable quote, made for this comment and cannot recall it The spirit of it is that the real world doesn't have any respect for your expectations of what's going to happen in it. A good many years ago, 2 gents tried to hold me up in front of a Federal Courthouse in broad daylight.

Re: Full-sized autos for CCW.

I like my THUNDER FIVE slung under my left shoulder straight-pull. I load it with .410 shells of varying types (magnum sabots, flamethrower, fletchette and quadbuck. I usually give the cylinder a random spin before holstering it. Also, I like a Raven against my ankle.

To what purpose? What is the perceived threat?

Satire, presumably.

Re: Full-sized autos for CCW.

I, too, like a Raven against my ankle, but he keeps pecking at my shin and squawking "Nevermore!"

Re: Full-sized autos for CCW.

And, then, there's that messy white stuff on your shoe. (A sure giveaway that you've got a Raven on your ankle!) :P

That's the best LOL in years

The white stuff on the shoe is a strong followup

Re: Full-sized autos for CCW.

I'm sure that most of you are more experienced than I am, but here goes.

I have four guns that I like to carry. A 1911 in .38 Super, a 1911 in .45, either in a shoulder holster or a belt slide.

Then there is my Browning BDA .380, also in a belt slide, and finally my Charter Arms .38 snubbie on a belt slide. The holster for that last is a FIST made speciallly for it. They were in New York City but I can't find FIST listed anywhere any more so I guess they're out of business now but they sure had a lot of holsters for almost any gun you could name.

Yeah, I've got a .38/.357 too. but it's a Ruger SA so not very practical for CCW. McCloud I ain't.

No, of course not.
Even mine can't reach that far.
