    Concealed Carry Firearms

    Just wondering how many here have concealed carry permit for your state and what you carry. Here is my family.

    Me: switch between carrying a J-frame 38 and a Glock 40 s & w

    Wife: carries a J-frame 38

    Older daughter carries a J-frame 38

    Older son carry changes between about five different guns with a Glock 9mm as his primary.

    Younger son: when he carries he carries a Glock 357 sig

    Younger daughter does not carry although she owns several firearms.

    What are your favored handguns for defense?

    Hey gary, my son has one of those as well. But, is concerned it is not quite powerful enough to rely on if needed.

    Sure is easy to conceal though. Nice little gun.

    We have a CCW in Texas but we also have the right to carry a hand gun in our vehicle when traveling even if just going to the store.

    I carry a Ruger 357, my daughter does have a CCW and carries a Tarus 357 snub with 38 loads. My SIL is a Game Warden and carries a Glock 40 off duty.

    We sort of have the "gun of the month" club at my home. We are regularly buying, selling or trading another gun on a regular basis. Can't actually say how many we own at any given time.

    We were up to as many as 42 firearms at one time. Don't think it is that high at the moment. Some are loaned out to friends as we also loan and borrow back and forth so we can share the experiences with various arms.

    My son is also in law enforcement so we even get to use the police range on occasion.

    Yeah, power is always an issue, but you can only use a gun that you have with you. It's a compromise, like a lot of things in life.

    My last gun was a Ruger SP101 38SP.

    Yup, that is always the debate. Should I carry power and lose some concealment and comfort or carry comfortable and discrete but give up stopping power? The on-going problem you face once you start daily carry in public.

    The Ruger SP101 is a great revolver. We just picked one up in .327, the new round and it is both powerful and pretty easy to conceal.

    You guys all carry to large.
    Do you have it on you or just locked up in the car?
    Glocks are too blocky and have sharp edges for my taste, i LOVE their hand guns a mechanical marvel.
    Hks are blocky too and hurt if you climb or bend much.
    I did have a s/w 3/8 Air weight hammerless that was superb.
    Its not what you shoot its how well you shoot it.

    Actually, I find Glocks pretty easy to carry concealed. In the summer I use an inside the waist holster and in the winter when I wear a sweater or jacket I carry in a high ride pancake outside the belt holster.

    I am currently carrying a compact Glock 40 cal on my hip and have all day and almost forget I have it on. Will wear it to the symphony concert tonight where I will spend New Years Eve with my family. And, four of us will be armed (concealing).
