What are you using for carry?

82 posts in this topic

Simply put just as the title states.  What weapon are you carrying?  "Carrying", of course, meaning everyday use (trips to the hardware store, local gaming event, etc.).

I'm really looking at the CZ 2075 RAMI BD because of its decocker.  However, the price is really high...

If I would be carrying (I'm still considering), I would definitely go for a Kel-Tec PF-9. It is a very small 9 mm pistol which holds 7 rounds plus one in the chamber. Alternatively, I would go for a Glock 26.

 

I have a friend who uses a Beretta PX4 subcompact for carry.

Nothing.  I would never carry a P64.  I don't own guns.

 

I remember that gun.  Perfect size... if you had one.

Walther P22

My wife has one. It's pink. She REALLY likes that gun. Make sure you're shooting CCI Stingers for home defense.

I would get a P22 as mainly a training pistol. It has the same battery of arms as regular auto-pistols and certainly looks like one.

Walther P22

I know this may come off as bad advice coming from this source but

I would suggest something of a bigger caliber

if some one was endangering you  and you feel the need to take that bad boy out you need to be more than 1000% in your skills and weapon will keep you safe

Although I totally understand what you're saying, I did EXTENSIVE research before buying my wife a .22 for self defense. I found out that the .22 is actually the cause for more wounds/injuries resulting in death that most other calibers and that the .22 is an assassin's number one choice round.

I did, however, make sure my wife's gun is loaded with the best brand for defense in .22 possible, and that is the CCI Stinger. The ballistics are really impressive for that round.

I was super skeptical about buying her a .22 for self defense, but if I would have even bought her a .380 and she would have been scared or uncomfortable shooting it, it would have turned her off to ANY gun. That's why I started to really dig for info about .22 self defense. Also, the guys over at the AR15.com forums had good stuff to say about it. So it sold me.

Now, my wife REALLY likes her gun and is interested in more.

^ I now feel more inclined to get one as a first pistol.

A .22 should always be your first firearm.

As I have been told many times! And I agree completely. The first pistol I ever shot was a Ruger SR22. A fine introduction to pistols for me. Very soft recoil, sounds very innocent compared to centerfire calibers, and pretty accurate.

9mm 1911 stays in my nightstand drawer, hollow point and extended clip installed... If someone decides to break in my house while on PCP, they aren't going to get an 'owie' , they're going to get a five inch exit hole in their back.

I'm going to quote this. My first was a 7.62x39 AK. Not a huge caliber or recoiling weapon, but if you naturally have significant flinch (like me) this translates into flinch when shooting. And anticipating recoil (even if you don't notice the actual felt recoil) which really hurts your accuracy. I have more flinch for everything than your normal person though. But I think this would translate well for someone who likely can't handle firearms well.

 

I've never shot a handgun before, though how much more does a .380 recoil than a .22LR?

Well, I can say that I've shot a friend's revolver in .380 that didn't have a bunch of recoil. With that said, I also just recently shot my dad's new Ruger LCP .380 ACP that he now carries and thought that it kicks a good bit.

Now these factors are all relevant. You see, my wife's Walther P22 is full-sized (I believe they only come in one size) and it didn't have much recoil at all. But my dad's Ruger LCP .380 ACP is a much smaller gun with a bigger bullet. Also, what type of ammunition my friend was using in his .380 revolver as opposed to what my dad had me shoot, I don't know. Was one high velocity and the other not? Don't know.

Overall, I suggest before purchasing a .380 of any type one should do extensive research on the gun first to see what kind of recoil it has. Again, it depends on the ammunition too.

Ever compared a .380 round to a 9mm round? Pretty interesting.

These days I don't know why you would pick a .380 over a 9mm.  The size savings are minimil for the loss of power.  Might as well just go down to .32ACP.

 

A .380 revolver huh?  Did you have to use moon clips with that?

I agree with the .380 and 9 mm thing. This is why I choose to carry a 9mm chambered gun rather than a .380. Besides, in the long run, the .380 is much more expensive to shoot compared to the 9mm. Also, if I have another pistol that I used for say competitions or training that is full sized, there's that ammunition compatibility and interchangeability.

Not that I recall.

Another friend of mine just picked up a VERY hard to find item. The .22 Ruger revolver. It uses magnums. Sweet and COMFORTABLE grip.
