    If you're lucky enough not to live in one of the few communist states or cities that don't allow concealed carry...

    What's your daily packin' iron?

    My primary carry piece is a Springfield Armory 1911A1 GI45, but I also have the options of carrying my Taurus 617, or my XD9. :D

    SA 1911A1 Mil-spec in general, in polite circles usually my Kel-Tek P32. If there are no metal detectors it even goes with me into Guv't Bldgs.

    Imbel Mod1 in .380 ACP. Civils cannot carry a .45ACP here, so I picket the nearest thing. The Imbel Md1 is a 1911clone, just in .380 acp. Commander size.
  10. Never sell the .380 short (if you'll pardon the pun), AGB. With good ammo, it is more than adequate for self-defense. I sometimes carry a Sig P230 myself and feel fully protected.

    i have carried a gun 6 days a week for well over 15 years...

    here is a chronological breakdown:

    1. STAR MODEL A 1922 VARIANT 9MM LARGO
    i bought it used, with almost no finish left on it. had it proffesionaly refinished (a non reflective stealthy flat black) and had a trigger job done...
    very reliable gun, very accuratte, would not feed hollowpoints.
    i came to the opinion that it was to heavy / bulky

    2. MAUSER MODEL 1914 .32 ACP
    compact, light, easy to carry. i had a custom leather holster made. it would not cycle correctly with hollowpoints, but otherwise was a reliabe, accuratte piece. i cam to the opinion that the JOSEF NICKL safety design might slow down deployment

    3. INA TIGER snubnosed Brazilian Air Force revolver .32 S&W long
    small, light, a joy to wear and easy to draw from any position / under any circumstance. quite accuratte (i can hit a tennis ball at 10 yds). handloaded soft lead +P+ semiwadcutters. 100% reliable. great for close in work. i still wear it a lot, but it lacks in ammo capacity.

    4. S&W MODEL 469 COMPACT 9MM LUGER
    light, short, smoothed, bobbed hammer, non snag configuration. 12+1 capacity, loaded with BLACK TALONS. a point and shoot high cap carry piece. reliable, well balanced. many "custom" features from the factory.

    i have, cause i am rather odd, carried some strange pieces:
    FROMMER STOP
    STAR MODEL SUPER B
    MAUSER MODEL 1910
    SATA
    CZ24
    EXCAM GT380
    S&W MODEL 13-3
    ETC...

    i recomend:
    its comfortable to wear / does not pull you pants down
    can be drawn while stiing down
    has been tested and found reliable
    it fits you
    you can hit what you aim at


    i lean towards a compact, not full sized gun.

    best regards, mike.
