    If you could only have three guns on your carry permit what would they be?







    btw I realize that this isn't a restriction in many other states and that I should move from this commie infested armpit of a state and how we'd all be better off if CA slid into the ocean etc etc etc. If that's what you want to comment on, save your breath, I've heard it a thousand times.

    Sorry...couldn't pick "just three"...

    Are there places where your CCW places limits like that on you?

    Such questions demonstrate a fundamental flaw: acceptance of tyrrany.

    If your limit is just 3, then "it's time".

    Yes that's the rules here where I live. It actually isn't a state law that places the limits but rather it is often imposed by the counties or cities. I think that the reason that the number three is most often mandated is because that's how many lines are on the permit (good reason, huh?). Each gun's make model and serial number is listed on the permit. I have a friend that lives nearby but got his permit through a different LE agency and he is limited to one gun on his permit!

    The only consolation is that if you can obtain a CCW permit in CA there are very few restrictions on where you can carry. For instance we can carry in bars, schools, banks, sporting events and I've never seen a business with no carry signage posted.

    So what three would you choose?

    Well, if a limit of three weapons on your CCW is time for a rebellion, how long will it be until our friends in California secede? If I'm not mistaken, there are other states that mandate a limit of weapons authorized on a CCW (NY comes to mind)?

    If I had the misfortune to live in a state such as this, my choices would be: S&W 686, RIA 1911A1, and P32 (the only three handguns I own that are appropriate for CCW). Come to think of it, if I could have any three weapons of my choosing, the only difference would be trading the Rock Island for a Para-Ordnance P14-45 LDA Limited.

    I live in IL. We cannot cary concealed under any circumstances. And we can't carry open either, except for some verry narrow hunting situations.
    No there is no rebellion, no mass exodus, the sheeple, big city dwellers, and FARMERS like it that way.
    How else can you explain how the corrupt Daley and his puppets keep getting elected?

    I however am close to leaving this stinkin place, just a little more waiting...
    ........then it's :neener: IL.

    No, it's not time for more talking. It's time for a liberal coating of tar and feathers for our Liberal government officials. :D

    C'mon be more helpful, dammit! :cuss:

    j/k :p



    Of course I'd rather not be restricted to three guns but is it really a good idea to carry more than three different guns anyway? It seems to me like it's best to stick with one gun as much as possible. Then that gun is very familiar because you practice with it often.

    One mid size Glock in 9mm or .40

    One full size 1911 in either .45 or 10mm (or .40 if its a doublestack)

    One compact 1911 in .45

    That covers all my needs and/or weather conditions.

    1) Some kind of .357 snubby for my anytime gun. I'm not too picky but a Smith, Ruger or older Colt come to mind. I really do consider the snub nosed .38/.357 to be the best civillian carry firearm ever created.

    2) SIG P239 in .40 because it is so comfortable, easy to conceal and shoots like a full size. I can also convert it to .357SIG should the whim grab hold of me. Grip choices are pretty numerous and it comes in an alloy/stainless steal model.

    3)SIG P220 for those heavy coat winter days or days when carrying a full size .45 just seems right. All stainless for me. Big gun, lots of weight but supremely accurate, very imposing looking and darn it my favorite autochucker of all time.

    Ya know I just realized that if SIG made a nice snub nosed revolver I would be happier than a pig in slop.:D :neener:

    Well, if I had to pick from the guns I currently own I'd have to say:

    Kimber Pro Carry
    Kel-Tec P-11
    Kel-Tec P-32

    That would cover about any scenario I can think of pistolwise.

    If you're limited to three...I don't care so much about the weapons themselves as the size of the weapons to which you're limited. I'd go with large, medium and small to meet the seasonal or dress changes you'll need to face.

    Full Size: A full size 1911 variant that's been tuned by a good smith and fired a few hundred times or a Glock 17.

    Medium Size: A Glock 19, hard to beat the blend of size and capacity here.

    Small Size: A Glock 26 or a snubby revolver of your choice in .357, or a PPK/s or Sig 232, or one of the mini Kahrs, or whatever else floats your boat.

    I live in a quiet town; don't expect to need "knock 'em-ALL-down-again-and-again" power, (and my thinking may be skewed, but I'll stand by my choices and ranking) so in order of preference:

    Browning HiPower (w/ 13rd mag)
    Kimber Ultra Ten II
    Wilson KZ-45c

    If I was still in Oakland, CA, the list would be:

    Wilson KZ-45 (full-sized)
    Kimber UT II
    BHP (w/ 17rd mag)

    1. Snub Nose Revolver
    2. Decent-sized Auto of your choice.
    3. Mousegun when you can't carry the other 2.

    I agree that most people probably don't need over 3 carry guns. But why should we have ANY set limit?

    Suppose my Mousegun breaks. My dealer has a REAL deal on a used Kel-tec P32. I guess I am not allowed to buy this gun and use it as a CCW until I get my original mouse gun back from the factory :what: ?????

    Just sounds like needless red tape and restriction to me... but then I really don't know the details I guess.

    Another SIG-A-HOLIC checking in; with my three choices:

    a) Mouse gun = NAA .22 magnum with 1-1/8" barrel.

    b) Snub nose revolver = Smith & Wesson "old model 60"
    in .38 Special with 2" pinned barrel and "R" serial prefix.

    c) Ah yes! :D My all time favorite, a West German SIG-
    SAUER P220A in .45ACP.

    d) Waiting in the wing's, :uhoh: another West German SIG-
    SAUER, P228 9m/m; complete with high cap's. ;)


    Best Wishes,

    1. 1911 .45ACP (Wilson CQB, Kimber TLE/RL, or Springfield TRP)
    2. S&W .38Special Airlight

    Don't know about the 3rd...

    But of course, I live in Riverside County, California, so I'd take any 3 I could get at this point.

    Okay, I'll play along with this one...

    1. Colt 1991A1 Cause ya just gotta have one!

    2. Ruger P95 9mm Bulletproof and indestructable, never fails

    3. Bersa Thunder 380 Cause it's small, light, and easy to carry

    (now if I could only figure out how to carry all three at once without being too obvious)
