Taurus M605 5 shot, 2" bbl. Or my Glock 26. The 26 is slightly harder to conceal than the 605. Well, of course, it's bigger.

You should have saved more money and bought a LWS32!

No, wait, maybe I've got that backwards?

Enjoy your little pocket cannon..

Newbie here with lotsa permits and looking for more... never carried a day in my life but am playing with lots of options.

So far I have it down to Glock 30 primary carry with Glock 26 backup. They are easily "canada legal" which is a must for me as I live in Toronto though am a yank.

I also have a bunch of other guns including a Kimber TLII/RLII, Walther P99, Ruger P345 and a bunch of others. My reaction is that for the most part they are all too heavy for 24/7 carry, excepting perhaps the Walther P99 with the Ruger P345 next in line. Also have a BUL M5 Ultra X Compact. Dead nuts accurate but still a bit heavier than I would like for CCW. The Sig P226 is right out to lunch. My pants fall down when I let go of my belt to draw... works real well for me though. The perps fall down on the ground laughing at my boxer shorts. I really like the Walther P99. It is light and accurate.

I am only discussing the 'bet your life on it' guns here. Anything that has jammed more than once is off my life forever unless resolved.

I also have an XD45 and just bought a paddle holster for it to carry under a jacket. It is lovely. Bit on the large size and I find that at combat range the Glock 30 and 26 are every bit as accurate, especially with the Storm Lake barrel installed. I have Storm Lake barrels installed in both... came from a bad production run unfortunately from the looks of it. It didn't take them more than a blink to replace them both... and I am NOT the first owner. Now THAT's service. And "BET YOUR LIFE" quality. Ran several hundred rounds through both new replacement barrels on the Glocks without a single failure. God... I love it. I am anal about cleanliness though and take the slide to bits after each and every shoot and use far too much gun butter (another incredible product) to lube them. They run as smooth as a baby's behind. In fact I used some Gun Butter on my washroom faucets this weekend and they are now working better than they have in twenty years. Thanks guys!

So, what do YOU carry? 24/7 concealed that is. And more importantly, what do you carry it in?

I am inclined to go with the Milt Sparks VMII for my G26, G30 and Walther P99. Those I think are going to be my carry guns. I think the others are all going to go up for sale although it breaks my heart, especially with the Kimbers. Someone suggested I go with the Pro Tac magazines and I have never had a misfeed in my Kimbers since. Not a one - "BET YOUR LIFE" safe.

I have more handguns that anyone should while my wife has indulged my need to find out for myself what is best for me to carry stateside. I have discovered that if you choose carefully you do not need to sacrifice a darned thing by going compact and light.(G26, G30, P99AS) I would highly recommend the Kimbers for a duty gun... the extra weight definitely reduces time to re-acquire the target... but at what cost? Heck, if we forget about weight, etc., I would choose my Smith & Wesson 686-2 wheel gun with custom barrel counterweight. It is my most accurate centre fire, bar none, regardless of caliber. I can shoot 1.5" groups at 30 feet all day long. I can shoot pie plates while walking all day long I am sure as well (yet to try).

Holsters? Milt Sparks VMII and Summer Special. And I like the looks of a few of the other leather holsters as well. Black leather for me all the way. And I have got to have tuckable due to my varying dress code. One day T shirt; the next day suit; the next day out in the evening in a tux. Keep in mind that the smallest I can carry and bring home with me across the border must have a 4.25 inch barrel. I want to keep everyone happy so I even installed a safe in back of our minivan. (Two actually... guns and ammo seperately; tremendous peace of mind especially with the kids).

So.. my $.02 worth so far. I am still assembling data and trying out suggested guns for carry, target shooting and IPSC, etc. And I am still evaluating holsters although I did see some VMII's in stock somewhere the other day and can't find the place now.

Please keep them comments coming. They are sincerely appreciated and rest assured put to very good use.

With warmest regards to all as always,


P.S. Would the fellow who I bought the wee parts from three weeks ago please contact me; I have lost your email and cannot send off the payment. Apologies, we have had family medical catastrphies here for the past few weeks and this past week I managed to break my foot as well (wife did same thing 6 weeks ago and took out the opposing knee in the all.... but we are the lucky ones... it's downhill from there my friends).

G23 in an RM kydex Low rider Holster--3:00 position-I wear it OFTEN, i forget it is there, even with swim trunks on!!!(i don't swim with it). Sometimes I feel my extended mag release, though. I may put something soft over it...
On ultra-covert days, I have my Kahr P40, with recent replacement parts from the factory, in a Desantis Nemesis pocket holster, but riding in my waistband at 3:00.
I usually forget either is there.
