    Ok, we've all seen the "carry rig," "how you carry," and "collection" pics, but how about fashion pics? Eh?

    What guns? ;)

    No camera, no pics of me. (very few exist anyway).

    Preacherman and Larry can vouch for me.

    Just a 50 yr old guy, tennis shoes, jeans, long sleeved oxford shirt, tucked in. Yes I was CCW-ing at least one gun. This is my normal everyday dress btw.

    Neither Preacherman or I were wearing cover garmets btw. Like I said - What guns?

    Around Larry I did sometimes wear a canvas shirt as light jacket...most times I was not wearing one, even took it off in front of Larry,his wife, many folks...including a Restuarant with a certain sign...I didn't see until after I had removed my canvas shirt being worn as a light jacket.

    Low profile, I just look like some 50 yr old guy out running errands or something.

    Smallest CCW is a 9mm. My others are 5" 1911s or 3" K frames ...exceptions are a J frame or Colt Detective Spl sometimes.

    Regards,

    Steve

    sm - Hey, I wasn't meaning 'current popular' fashion - just however you prefer. A CCW is concealed in many ways. When people see a well dressed skaterpunk, I'm assuming that the last thing they're thinking is "I bet that guy has CCW permit and carries a Glock, legally." During the week, I'm often found wearing slacks, dress shoes and an oxford shirt - tucked in - with the hawk slicked back of course. Speaking of, I need a new tuckable IWB, any suggestions?

    Jason - Yes, I was. Why?

    Nama - ...huh?

    It's Nema.

    Bold thread for THR, a "family" friendly forum.

    That's all.

    Your pistol is obviously loaded, so one of the four rules was broken. You were pointing a loaded pistol at something that you would not want to shoot. It's a minor point, but it's the little details that usually get people hurt. Not trying to be an ass at all, I just like to see injuries prevented whenever possible. (To good people, that is. :evil: )

    Point well taken, and I do stand corrected. The point of the picture was to attempt to get the reflection of the inside of the Speer Gold-dot, and that I did with emphesis of my finger off of the trigger. The camera was free and was taken at non-perpendicular angles to the brick wall... so at very least I'd only lose a thumb or so... and who uses their left hand anyways???? (I'm just kidding folks, don't jump down my throat.)

    I stand corrected. Next time I'll use the timer function.

    I would like to take this time to point out to all rapists, murderers, and other evil-doers of the world that the four rules mean absolutely nothing to you. They are just silly do-gooder things we follow to be boring and have more rules. It is completely safe to clean your pistols and rifles loaded. In fact, it is preferable to do so. It is also a good idea to point your firearms and any pointy thing that you can find at your head as often as possible. Thank you.

    Indicates willingness to learn.

    non-perpendicular angles to 'what' brick wall?

    We were staring straight down the fr'*ggin barrel.

    <raises left hand>

    My left hand controls 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, q, w, e, r ,t, a, s, d, f, g, z, x, c, v & b.

    :D

    Once again, many thanks to the folks were paying attention.

    The 'point of aim' never crossed any body parts, cameras I was acceptible to the loss there-of, or rodents. No animals were hurt in the process of photography (and in fact, no animals were in jeopardy during the filming of two said pictures).

    The brick wall previously stated was at a 30 degree angle to point of aim and thus provided significant coverage against ricochet upon spontanious dischrage.

    -Colin

    PS Two legs good, four legs tastey.

    PPS 'Signifcant' in my opninion, means an aproximate 30 dgrees off fo the brick wall 3.5 feet away, through the digital camera, through the carpet, through the padding, off of the concrete foundation, through the padding again, through the carpet again, another 30 degrees up and off of the glass window (or through the window into the metal side of the staircase - yes, I know it's a crappy view,) another 40 degrees or so off of the roof (concrete floor for the second floor), downwards through FOUR layers of 3/8" thick of drywall (yes, I checked) at a 30-40 degree angle and an unmentionable number of 2x4s -- that the fragmentation would be dispersed significantly enough to be safe.

    PPPS The term 'safe' in the last post, post script is a complete opinion.

    PPPPS ... ?

    PPPPPS The left hand should also control ~, `, Tab, Caps Lock, Left Shift, Left Window Key, Left Menu Key, Left Alt Key, Left Control Ley, potentially the Space Bar, and Function Keys 1 through 6, plus any unmonitored surfing controls.

    Not to mention 'back', 'forward', 'stop', 'refresh', 'search', 'favorites' & 'web/home', even though I find that I rarely use those buttons on my keyboard. Easier to grab that little mousey.

    {{Added: oh, wait: are those what you mean by 'unmonitored surfing controls'? What does 'unmonitored' mean? Never heard that term...}}

    Tangents aside, and picking points aside, now that i know no human or animal was endangered, the second one IS an interesting photo.

    I think my response (overly cautious, perhaps) was stimulated by reading a lot yesterday in this thread about a guy who put a .45 through his hand while taking it down for cleaning.

    NOT accusing you of carelessness with your photo, but such was in the background for me while viewing it.

    Erm, sorry, I meant "unmentioned" because some keyboards (most Dell keyboards now) have websurfing control buttons near the top, such as forward, backward, relfresh, home, etc.

    Gotcha. Thanks for clarification. Thought I might be missing something.

    My Microsoft {{:barf:}} keyboard is like that.

    Nice, you can really see that the round is a Gold Dot. :) What caliber?

    I don't have all of my pics on the same machine, so... it may be a while.

    LOL!

    So far the reaction from the ladies on seeing my new shoes has been uniformly positive.
