I'm thinking of getting a 2nd Gen G21 soon for woods carry. Curious to see how people are carrying them. Anyone carry a G21 in the backcountry? Lets see 'em.

You are using a drop leg to walk around in the woods?

Interesting.

Pros and cons?

Since bear and mountain lion frequent our camp spots, my Ruger Bisley Hunter in .44 mag goes with me when camping---sometimes my CAR-15.

I have a OD G20 that I use for hunting,ATV'ing,and general woods type of stuff. This is not a dedicated range or CC weapon.

I cannot/would not use a drop leg type of rig to carry it in due to the very thick brush and vines that I am constantly going through down here in the swamps of Fla. My weapon is carried in a Blackhawk SERPA with long shirt pulled down to cover the weapon.

My G20 has been modified to the extent of >> 3.5# connector,extended slide stop lever,green slide cover plate,TruGlo TFO sights,a very thorough $.25 trigger job including chamber and bbl ramp polished,and a "butt plug" installed.

I practice with Blazer 200gr. FMJ's that I buy from Acadamy for $12.76 for 50. I carry DT 180gr. XTP's when my 4.6"bbl is installed. And for hunting,with my 6" OEM bbl installed, I carry DT 200gr. WFN hardcast. All 3 of these loads shoot to the same POI(@ 25yds) w/o sight ajustment.

Hey Harleyfx69 -

lol ya ..

ya i love my uncle mikes drop leg .. it has an elastic band thats VERY easy to adjust .. can go from small to big ..

it has a thumb release , and also a velcro tab that can be pulled over the thumb release ..

it fits any handgun that i own which was surprising to me..

but i carry g22 in it .. not quite a 21 .. but same size at least .. then i carry 2 spare magazines in an uncle mikes pouch .. i like the leg platform because it allows for quick draw while riding in vehicles, quads, dirt bikes, etc ..

also its very comfortable . . doesnt pull your pants down .. dont even feel its there ..

plus theres the quick draw feature .. heres a video of me drawing and firing ..

Not very Rambo but when checking timber I carry a G19 in a Fobus paddle (no need for a belt when wearing jeans). Cover it with a loose untucked shirt. The only worries in the N. Louisiana/ E. Texas woods are snakes, wasps and feral dogs. Forgot to mention folks with their meth labs.

No special engraving, just says Bisley Hunter I think...

lol i aint going for the rambo look .. im going for the "get the gun out and on target as quick as possible.." and with that holster it is VERY quick ..

around here we have a LOT of marijuana "crops" that people stumble upon .. the people guarding these lots are VERY well armed .. i feel underarmed compared to them ..

also a lot of snakes .. coyotes .. bob cats .. etc etc ..

i want to start hunting larger game soon, so i might up-grade to a 44 magnum. i'm thinking a ruger redhawk.

i used a hunter 1100 holster, but it's MIA.

Hey Harley - When I mentioned my set-up as "not very Rambo" I wasn't talking about your holster, I was talking about my G19 compared to the G20 10mms.

around here we have a LOT of marijuana "crops"

We have those "heavy timber farmers" in Louisiana too.

I use the blackhawk CQC holster for my G21 when messing around in the woods, if possible I have some kind of long gun with me though.

Glock 27 with a Don Hume thumb break. Just bought a S&W 65 on gunbroker, waiting for it to get here... http://i5.photobucket.com/albums/y177/TScottW99/sw65.jpg

:banana:

I am still debating about which holster to get. Have been looking but have not found the holster I'm looking for yet.

Thanks buddy.:wavey:

I've got a .454 Casull Ruger SRH, which with hot loads is a lot more powerful than the .44 Magnum, but the .44 is a lot more fun to shoot. So I stopped buying anything more powerful than .44 Mags. Figure if I need to kill something the .44 won't kill, I really should have brought a rifle. :supergrin:

SC no worries - the 44 mag will kill anything big enough to die in North America.

Here in GA I've been leaning on my G20 as the primary woods gun.

how does that finish hold up? Any trips out in the woods with that rig ?

Yeah it holds up as good as any poly finish I know of. I carry it in that holster several times a year.

It's a Birdsong finish. Birdsong is best known for their Black T finish, as seen on Springfield's Professional 1911, this is just what they call NATO Green.

I like their finishes because they are more matte than Armor Tough, Bear Coat, Armory Coat and Roguard.

Man i love that finish might have to look at this much farther, Thanks

Holy cow, are you taking a nice walk in the woods or are you dressing up to go invade Poland?
