I either figured it out or it took me too long to figure out......
I haven't ever carried a concealed firearm, so I guess I don't understand the question. Is it in reference to carrying a speed strip for reloading in a watch pocket, or the odd looking bullet the visible cartridge is loaded with, or the fact that the loading strip is visible, or about using a straight strip to carry cartridges for a round revolver cylinder? I apologize for being so clueless, but I am really nonplussed.
PS - Amazingly, "nonplussed" is a word the spellchecker here recognizes, whereas it objects to "defence". Computers are hard to understand.
That those bullets look under seated?
Defence goes around my yard, but my computer doesn't know that.
Looks like someone forgot a crimp...
Looks more like someone only seated the bullet about halfway. Next one in line is the same way.
Defence is what the MoD spends lots of Pounds Sterling on........
If you are referring to the speed strip in the watch pocket, I saw my Dad's best friend, a narc, (as they were known back then) do that for his BUG back in about '72. . His 'duty gun' was a Hi-Power.
I have recently been running a BUG in my watch pocket- NAA .22 Short with Boot Grip.
Bullet is definitely not properly seated in the case. I sure hope it's not that full of powder.
If we are referring to the bullet not totally seated where does the really smart part of this question come from?
Hopefully there is a bottom lube groove with lube in it.
It's common to load bullets long to get the nose of the bullet into the leade of the cylinders for target work. These bullets are crimped in the bottom lube groove.
I don't do that with sd loads myself but it looks like there's a roll crimp over the middle drive band/bottom of the lube groove.
Perhaps a heavy bullet (180gr/200gr) loaded in shorter cases (38s&w/38spl) for a 38spl/357mag???
On the rare occasion that I carry my p238, I’ll keep a spare mag in that tiny watch pocket.
(And yet another mag in a mag pouch on my weak side)
But now I’m curious what that 550 cord is tied to
Well .. I carry everyday ... I have carried speed strips in the watch pocket ... I like carpenter jeans
and carry speed strips or a magazine in the ruler pocket ...
Same here, sometimes, though mine is in .22LR, and it's usually a third. I'm left-handed, so it's turned around to make it easier to reach with either hand, crossdraw style. That also allows me to slide my cellphone case over it some to cover it.
Looks like an old style Spyderco Delica or Native by the looks of the clip attachment. I've got one of each like that.
Well , it's like my daddy told me on my wedding night :
"Son , don't never give no answers if you don't know the question.".
There is a deep and wide lube groove. These shoot best when loaded to this length. And yes there is most definitely a crimp over the driving band.
Endura Clipit 50/50
Case is full of Bullseye powder and bullet is crunched down on top (Really?)
P.S. Bullet is properly seated.
They are all that way........
The headline was for the fact I felt idiotic for not realizing the watch pocket and speed strip relationship before this time. It was a eureka moment for sure.
Here is the ammo not pocketed, how they sit in my I frames and how they shoot (2 cylinderfuls @ 7y).
