I carry .357, reasoning being--I am growing older and clumsier, and in the heat of the moment
a revolver is still embeded in my reflexes and thinking process.Also my sweetie carries a
revolver and if I should be put down she can shoot either hers or mine if the crap was still
hitting the fan.Also if I happen to be carrying 38+P in mine, there is ammo available for both
weapons. Make any sense?
Keith, I carried a .40 cal for many a year, I just don't like the trigger bite I got from my G27 and G22. I never tried Rugers so I can't say how they feel. But I now carry a blue .44 2" revolver. This is soon to change to a Ruger SP101, as I like the smallness of it and the fact that it is stainless.
In the summer I wear http://magills.com/pgroup_descrip/311/6920/?return=? which when I worked UC this type of holster worked great for no detection by the BG's. Mine is in white and the nice thing about it is that it has 4 differant possitions of holstering, as well as mag holders etc. I actually carried a small two way, cuffs G27, 4 mags reloads without detection, and I'm not a small guy.
Well, I carried a P89 9mm for several years, but my wife has taken it over. So, I bought the P90 .45 and have been carrying it for awhile now. But, I also have the SP101 in .38 and the GP .357 that I would feel perfectly safe in carrying.
I have a K/T 3AT on me all the time and if I leave the house I carry a 1911/.45 S&W sc/41/4" barel. Two 10rd mags on my belt, and a 6rd back up for the K/T in a pocket. I am sure some DA will try and hang me with it but that's the point. I be here to fight and the BG might be wearing a dirt overcoat.
P90 w/3 extra cllips and M649 w 4 speed strips and 2 HKS Speedloaders ---all in my belt/pockets under a pocket t-shirt-very active every day in remodeling/plbg./ladders/ etc.-never spotted...always prepared and ready to share with my work partner who does not have permit yet...
