I am actually doing a little research into what people are carrying for personal defense in the way of firearms.

Please respond with just a short simple line such as:

Glock 27, 2 extra mags

OR


Taurus 85 (.38spl)


Please keep it short and sweet. Thanks

check the top tacked thread above:

www.ar15.com/forums/topic.html?b=5&f=10&t=28422

Kimber TLE II 1911, +2 WC 47Ts
or
Glock 19, +2 G17 mags

and SW 442 or G26


+ another spare sometimes

Link Posted: 4/26/2008 12:29:51 PM EST
G26.

Link Posted: 4/26/2008 12:51:51 PM EST
1) S&W 442 and a speed loader or strip. When pocket carry or apendix carry is best.
2) G26 + G19 mag as ccw when able to 4:00 IWB and conceal well.(often)
3) G19 + 2 mags OWB or IWB when the situation warrants extra firepower regardless of politically correct concealment or in the wilderness. #1 piece for vehicle weapon w/ G18 mag.

There is no 1 best carry peice IMO.

Here are the handguns I have that I actually carry from smallest to largest:

P3AT
PM9
340PD
G27
P239G19
USPc .45
92FS
SA 1911 Loaded
G21

I carry the PM9, G27, 239 & G21 the most frequently.

I'll be replacing the P3AT with a Kahr P380 once they are released. Other than that I'd say I have pretty much a gun for any situation.
