    I carry a well dressed full size 1911. I shoot it better than anything else and I don't mind the weight, thus it sees the carry time.

    I'm going to be transitioning out of my Ruger SR9c, I think, but that had kind of been my EDC. Excellent gun, and I'm going to keep it, but I'm thinking revolver. I'm going to look for a used S&W Model 64 with a TWO inch bbl. (and round grip, if such a thing exists.)

    Anyway, what's with the "MR." Colion Noir all the time?? Is that like his first name, or something?

    I actually stopped carrying my BHP MKIII for 2 reasons, and neither of them for price. 1) I realized I would have issues replacing it if it was lost/confiscated right now, so until I find a spare it gets to be a range queen and MOSTLY 2) I shoot .45, and specifically 1911's better.

    So I carry a Commander length 1911 daily.

    I tried the smaller types while deciding on what to CCW (Ruger SR9c, Springer XD, LCP, etc) but I've found the bigger guns carry well with my dress and I shoot em better. And if I'm not at work or at a banned location, I'm carrying.

    Ruger LCP. It fits in my pocket, doesn't pull my pants down, and does not print!

    Mine is what I've said for over 10 years now, a Kimber Ultra CDP. It cost me $950 back then and has been worth it ever since. I also carry a KT P32 BUG.

    Depending on weather/clothing, a Glock 23 or 27.

    You'll see racism where you want to. Reckon he could of been a bit more eloquent, but I believe I get his drift.
    There is no denying that there are packs of ferals out attacking folks. The ethnicity of those involved can be gleaned quite readily on the internet.

    I've carried 3"-5" 1911's in Milt Sparks SS/SS2 and VM II holsters, over many decades. Never had a problem with hammer or grip safety digging into my side.

    I live where its hot most of the year so I pocket carry a J Frame S&W. Usually either a 642 or a 638. Since I retired and no longer have to conceal a full sized weapon, I don't.

    I ususally carry one of three guns:
    This one, a Gary Reeder custom job, which weighs around a million pounds:

    Or this one, a S&W Model 29-10, which weighs around 1/2 million pounds:

    or this one, a S&W Model 624, which has hardly any detectable weight at all:

    Interestingly, too, I tried all of them in pancake IWB and 'smart carry' holsters. Which are kinda expensive. Both are in my dresser drawer. :banghead: Using a $15 Uncle Mikes IWB, I hardly notice the heavier ones, and, it is the most comfortable IWB I've tried so far. :)

    My new Glock 30S. Only $500. I'm doing the holster search right now.

    Colt 3rd gen Detective Special (the one with the ejector rod shroud) & Speer Short Barrel Gold Dots (not for practice, for that 148 gr wadcutters). For my purposes, hard to do better than that.

    I guess that qualifies for "mid-range" blue collar budgeting, but not for much longer with Colt DA inflation. Never well heeled enough to be a "collector" and I consider it to be the best .38 spl. snubby to use.

    Generally it is a CA .44 Bulldog. If it is intolerably hot and I am not wearing much clothing, it is a Seecamp .32.

    Did you bling out that 29, or was it a pawn shop find?

    My "everyday" carry is usually a Glock 26, occasionally a S&W J-Frame Model 60.

    It's funny that you brought this topic up, cause the other day I was standing in line behind this fellow that was wearing. Out of the blue, he turned around and started boasting about the $2,800 1911 on his hip. He obviously noticed I was carrying, and saw the opportunity to show off I guess? I didn't really say much back to him, nice gun, that was about it.

    Unless they are a collector that shouldn't be used, I have never thought of them as something to be considered as rare gems or precious metals, they're guns, and they are meant to be used as such.

    Mine range from $200-ish to no more than $800-ish, and all get carried and shot without consideration for normal wear and tear.

    Ruger SR9c, S&W 638

    I shoot the Ruger a little better, but it's heavier. The 638 shoots remarkably well for it's size. I have a Taurus 85 that goes on road trips as a trunk gun when we're in hostile territory.
