Re: Spin-off Thread - Why do you carry what you carry?
I carry .380 b/c its what I know. Size is the only determining factor for me. Weight dosen't really bother me, but I can sometimes hardly stand walking around with a wallet in my back pocket. Its all about comfort but also I know my CZ forwards and backwards. I can shoot right and left handed, single handed, laying down, sitting up, standing on my head (OK maybe not that) but its what I know and I know that I will hit what I'm aiming at and I trust this gun. I've shot 45's I own a 38 a 357 and a 9mm also but the .380 is the one that I can control day in, day out. Yes I understand that the .380 has less knock down power, but I have a better chance of hitting you in the face with it than I would with my 38.
I never understood why some people carry this gun one day, and another another day and another a 3rd day. So when an unfortunate time that you need to use the gun your thinking, OK do I have my 45? or my 38?
Only cowards shoot with their eyes closed....
