Re: Spin-off Thread - Why do you carry what you carry?
I carry a 1911A1 year round, with two extra mags on my left hip. The gun resides in a Yaqui style holster to reduce the amount of weight I am carring. In the winter the gun is covered by my coat. In the summer the gun is covered by my shirt. In the Fall, and early Spring, the gun is covered by the coat. If it warms up I just make a trip to the bath room, take off the coat, pull out my shirt tails, and am good to go. In the summer I am usually in shorts, T shirt, and sandles. If the shorts are blue jean type, nothing changes. If the shorts are the type with the elastic waist band then the gun is in a Smart Carry System. Don't think I need to explain the reason for the caliber. The gun has been set up by Jim Clark (before he passed away), it is reliable, and a traget shooter. It will do it's job if I do mine. For those of you that carry several different types of guns, I would like to see you get some real training. Please!
Y'all be safe now, ya hear!
