The Rohrbaugh R9s? How do you like it?

We were talking about it in another thread but I couldn't find anyone there who actually owns one.

I love the R9s. I replaced the Seecamp LWS-380 with my R9s. Had the good fortune to visit the range yesterday and fired two mags just cause it was in my pocket. lol Then commenced to put 150 rounds thru my new XD-9 which may well be my Jeep carry pistiol. Will probably pick up the G27 tomorrow if the rain slows down a bit. :(

I'd like to read your impression of the G27 in terms of how it compares to your XD9. I have the G26 (same frame as G27) and like it the best of the subcompacts. I'm not sure into which category the XD9 falls. With its longer barrel it might be a compact rather than a subcompact?

I have carried everything from a S&W Model 19 4", 1911 series auto's to Glock 22. But for the last 12 years has been a Colt 380 pocketlite. Love it and probably will be a while before I change, if I ever will. I go for comfort and and concealment.

Just my opinion: it is not the size of the bullet, or how many rounds but control and shot placement.

Stradawhovious: Is your Kimber a full-size 1911? If you carry this daily, I'm impressed. I tried carrying my 1911A1 for something like three days and gave up. Also, do you open carry or carry concealed?

I'm merely curious, as I have great admiration for those who carry a 1911.

Primarily G23, but sometimes I'll switch it up and carry either my G19 or Kimber UCII.

Mostly a LW Commander in an IWB holster. Lately I've been using Winchester White Box 230gr. JHPs' in mine.

Springfield XD40 Subcompact and recently, Ruger LCP .380 when carrying a larger firearm isn't practical.

Hk P7

I like the P7 because it is so readily concealable. Just behind it is the Glock 19.

I have both the Glock 26, 30 and XD9. I also have the HK P7M8 and P7PSP. Tough question to answer. OWB carry... Glocks are nice; no safety to fumble. IWB Glocks are nice but have a problem... no safety to fumble with. Too easy to AD/ND IMHO. So IWB I would prefer something a bit safer if I am going to carry with one in the chamber (and Glocks, as far as I am concerned, are cocked and ready to go as soon as the trigger is pulled). IWB I carry either my XD9, Walther P99 or my fav the HK P7's which are squeeze cockers. All of these have grip safeties, decockers or squeeze cockers; one simple line of defense against AD/ND, for which Glocks are No. 1 and don't let anyone tell you any different. The P99 is small and light enough for pocket carry; I will probably use one for IPSC ... or the XD40 Pro. My fav, the P7's are heavy, all steel. But they are the safest of the bunch no matter how you carry it (even clip carry IWB) and when wearing a winter or heavier fall coat I carry in my pocket. The are safe as heck, deadly accurate and super reliable if you keep them clean (especially noting that they don't like lint).

So... the question is not easy to answer. I love the reliability of Glocks and use them extensively but never IWB carry or pocket carry. Just too much risk of hitting that trigger and making bang. Duty carry or OWB carry or IPSC carry? No problem. I love them to bits. And they are a snap to clean and break down to the last bitty part (think there are under forty in total). NEVER IWB or pocket carry a Glock IMHO. Ever. The others are okay for any carry method you wish pretty much... I like the decocker on the P99. First shot is something like 8 or 10 pounds and then it reverts to a very light pull as it should. Our regional police also use Sigs with 12.5 pound first pulls. They practice doing chin ups with their trigger fingers I am sure.

I am not familiar with ALL models and makes but have played with many. One gun does not fit for every circumstance. I would NEVER carry a Glock for instance with one in the tube in one of those elastic band carries aimed at my jewels. Sic. You can carry fine for twenty years.... best you have all your kids early as at some point it is going to go bang when you don't expect it. Glock is a great duty weapon but I would carry something else that's just as reliable and is somewhat more accurate... I've been using a Para for IPSC/IDPA recently and have just finished putting a thousand rounds through it without cleaning it or lubing it. Not a single failure, dead accurate and repeatable, great trigger (adjustable) and so on. Best 1911 platform I have used and I am not a fan of 1911's due to reliability.

Good luck.

Torontogunguy:

Thanks for your reply. Clearly, you have plenty of experience carrying, moreso than I do (7 years as an LEO, then left to go to graduate school). Not at all familiar with what appears to be your favorite carry choice, the HK P7, but I will look it up. As for 1911 platforms, I'm impressed by what you say about the Para Ordnance (just now went to the site and read up on it). Probably the gun I should have bought for range use but didn't know about it. However, I've been doing some competitive stuff down here with a Taurus PT1911 that has so far been dead reliable and an accurate shooter with a sweet trigger.

No, I'd never carry any Glock IWB, OWB is fine and I do it frequently. For me, IWB is mostly a Chief's Special or a Kel Tec .380 (my ATM gun).

Just read about the P7. My, my. Squeezer safety on the front strap. Obviously OK for IWB but watch the lint. I'm impressed by the appearance, size, and design, although the two sites I just visited never mentioned mag capacity, which makes me wonder whether it's single stack or double stack and how fat it is.

I carry a G32 in a Raven concealment holster for IWB when wearing jeans or pants. It really hides the gun very well and stays put. Easy to get the firearm into action too.

I carry a G22 for work in a Blackhawk Serpa holster. It used to be a Springfield Mil Spec but a change in policy doesn't allow firearms with manual safeties, so I switched to the Glock.

As soon as I get the holster in, I will carry a Sig P232 in a Raven Concealment holster when in shorts or I want something lighter.



I don't quite understand the problem with carrying a "safe action pistol" IWB assuming you are using a proper holster that covers the trigger guard. Say, something like a comptac c-tac, m-tac or a raven concealment holster or even a good quality leather IWB holster. I see no more danger of having an nd with that setup than carrying OWB. Its not as if you are going to be yanking the pistol out 12 times a day, put the holster/weapon on in the beginning of the day and take it off at the end of the day.
