    I carry a Para-Ordanance LDA Ltd .45 loaded with PMC Green Frangible Ammunition.

    No Offense, CandRammo, but having shot many types of frangible out there, PMC has the best in my opinion. A Non-Jacketed copper/poly round with Non-Toxic Primers. Also, the most accurate I have shot by far!! (<1inch at 25 yds.) Yours in particular didn't make the top 5....

    You can get more onfo at http://www.pmcgreen.com

    And no, I do not work for PMC.

    I have had the opportunity to shoot all frangible ammunition(s) that were used in the DOE/FLETC Contract Bidding Process. Since your company was one of the entrants, you have access to this information.

    I find it interesting that you instantly insinuate that I would work for the company whose ammunition I chose as a personal favorite...Does this logic apply to everyone who posts here?

    This thread title simply asked "What gun(s) do you carry and what is it loaded with", to which I posted my answer.

    I do not have to look at the DOE contracts,I know where I placed in them.Sorry if you think i was insinuating that you worked for PMC. I just asked, for the last 3 posts you put up you talk about PMC "green" and how it was better than any other frangible out there. I mean I think that my frangible is better than anyone's "like" product out there today,but i own the company,so I guess that gives me the right to:)Do you see now,how I might insinuate the fact that you may be working for them?I apologise if I have offended you:)I think you and i could have a very good interesting conversation about frangible ammo,you seem well schooled. Give me a call on the LL,we will talk:)

    On my next trip to your area, we'll do lunch. Would love to talk more. I am neither insulted nor offended. If you read my other post, you might assume that I work for DOE :)

    I carry a Rossi model 351 .38 Special snubbie with Gold Dot 135gr. +P

    Any bullet that mushrooms consistently from my snub gets my vote (and Dollar)!!

    They are also very accurate. I get 8" groups at 25 yards double action. I know it doesn't sound great, but a hit in the chest is a hit in the chest. A hit in the chest with a Gold Dot is a fight stopper.

    38's just got a lot more dangerous to the bad guys.

    5 every time, all the time....ALWAYS!

    :)

    I carry the S & W Model 500 in a 2" snubnose...

    OK.......





    actually, the 642 w/Speer Gold Dots +P and the Ruger SP101 .357 w/ Winchester Silver HP

  17. Most often I carry an S&W 637 loaded with Speer 135 grain Gold Dot +P in either a paddle holster by Kramer or an IWB, also by Kramer. When clothing permits, I carry either a Glock 33 (with a .40 S&W barrel in it), or a Taurus PT-745 in .45 ACP. I'm coming to like that Taurus rather much since it is even lighter and less bulky than the Glock with a light DAO trigger on it. I have a nice paddle holster from Mernickle on order for it. Once it gets here, I suspect I'll carry it more often than I do now. The only holster I currently have that will fit it is a Galco Silouette High Ride, which is OK, but not a perfect fit.

    Most of the time I carry a Kimberm Pro CDP II in a pancake holster loaded with Speer Gold Dots and a couple of extra mags. When I need deeper concealment I carry a Glock 19 in an inside the pants holster again loaded with Speer Gold Dots.
