Concealed carry

What works better for you guys? Revolver or semi? Which ones and why. I am in the middle of deciding which way to go

Re: Concealed carry

Have always carried a semi and Glocks in particular for the last 25+ years.

Just love the accuracy and insane reliability of the Glock to run flawlessly in ANY condition.

My constant companion for the last 15 years or so has been a G29 compact 10mm. The ultimate concealable fight stopper

Re: Concealed carry

Semi - most will hold more rounds than a revolver also overall gun is flatter making it easier to conceal in my opinion. Some carry a second magazine making it easier to reload if needed.

Are you really old enough to remember when there were huntable numbers of deer on public land?

Re: Concealed carry

If you are buying I would try everything I could get my hands on. Revolvers and semi autos both conceal easily. It does take a little more practice to shoot a small revolver accurately, then again small semis take more practice too.

Re: Concealed carry

Depends on the weather, your clothing, and lots of other variables. Since it can be carried in any weather, my constant companion is my S&W 442 Centennial Air-weight. From light shorts on a 100 degree day to blue jeans, to snow pants it can be thrown into a pocket in it's Mika pocket holster. Mika makes both round and square bottom pocket holsters and I got one of each to custom fit the pocket I happen to be wearing that day.

Mika pocket holsters

Although not for everyone, snub nosed revolvers offer you the least PITA carry systems that exist. And remember, the best gun is the one that you will have on you when you need it.

BUT if you can belt carry 24/7/365.25 then by all means, get something bigger and easier to shoot.

Re: Concealed carry

Um, both.

No, seriously. I carry both. My primary carry is a Glock 26 9mm in an OWB holster, with a S&W 642 .38sp carried in a Galco Ankle Glove.

The Glock is the one I carry the most, but if I'm wearing shorts and a tucked in shirt, then the S&W gets carried in a pocket holster.

Re: Concealed carry

Glock 26. I have others but this is my Sunday go meeting gun.

I'm so far behind I think I'm in first place.

Re: Concealed carry

Both...S&W 642 air weight .38 special or a M&P 9c. I am on the hunt for a single stack 9mm though. Considering the Shield, Sig P938, or LC9s pro.

Re: Concealed carry

Any self respecting gun nut (like me) will end up with a revolver and a pistol and maybe more then one of each
