    I have a Colt Mk-4 Series 70 loaded with 200 GR JHP's loaded to 1050 FPS.
    I don't carry it much because I don't have a permit. I went and bought a jennings J-22 as a "Throw away gun" but after firing it a couple of times, it fell apart. I replaced it with a Freedom Arms .22 mini Mag revolver.
    When I was in the reserves, I would ride my BMW motorycle 320 miles each way every month for my drill weekends and I always packed the mini mag while on the road. One time, I pulled over and slept next to my bike in a rest area only to wake up and find some guy going through my pockets. I pulled the mini mag on him asking "Can I help you?" He freaked and ran very quickly.
  3. Hey Bernie, I see you live in Central CA. San Joaquin Valley, perhaps? I grew up there (near Fresno), but left when the state converted to socialism. ;)

    You're right, getting a permit to carry is virtually impossible in California, which is pretty bad considering the crime rate there. Like you, I sometimes carried a small handgun anyway (NAA Blackwidow or Sig P-230) on the theory that it is far better to be judged by 12 than carried by 6!.

    Yep. Fresno area. Drilled in San Diego every month for 12 years.
    My BMW R-100 GS has over 300,000 miles on it from all that commuting.
    We like to say that we here in the valley is about 30 years behind the rest of the state. Unfortunately, the valley is desparately playing catch up.

    Hello everyone, I am new here. I have been active with some other post sites, but have relocated due to juvenile and irreverent squabbles. I look foward to future discussions.

    S&W Bodyguard J frame in a Galco ultimate 2nd ammendment inside the pants holster, Hydra shok. Occasionally I will use my front pocket.

    My KelTec P3AT was bought to be a summer carry, but is now my nearly-always gun. It is stuffed with the DoubleTap 90g Gold Dots at an honest 1000fps out of the stubby little barrel.

    Recoil with this round is the stoutest of any .380 ammo I have ever fired, so I added the finger extension mag floor plate to all my magazines. With the extension, I have the rapid fire controllability with the DoubleTaps that I had with the rather wimpy WWB FMJs.

    Accuracy is great, and it is 100% reliable. I carry mine with the belt clip. The mag extension actually helps with a speedy draw, and does not decrease how easily it conceals.

    Please bear in mind that I live in an extremely low crime area, rarely am out at night, and do not go to any 'bad' places (actually, we don't have any close to us). When I am forced to travel or go to the big city, I bring a 45ACP also.

    I carry only 1 gun. Smith and Wesson 1911 summer winter and whenever. I use Fed. Hydra shok 230 grain +p Hp's 1 in chamber 8 round wilson combat mag and I carry a 10 round wilson Com. spare.

    I will carry this until I can find a way to conceal an ar-15. (anything is possible)

    I don't trust anything less than a .45. where I work, a crack head is more deadly than a grizzly bear. If you don't kill it, it's really pi$$ed off.
