    I carry a glock 19, it seems to be a little heavy for summer clothing. Will be fine for winter though.

    what do i carry? thats a loaded question.lol. to me it matters where im going and what im doing. my favorite weapon it my glock 23, i am the most comfortable with it and its carried and shot more than any other weapon i own (including long guns). then somedays i dont feel like messing with a full size auto, ill grab the glock 27 or my keltec PF-9. if im just running out to the store and in a hurry, ill slide my keltec P3AT in a front pocket and go. as you can tell, i like striker fired autos

    I attended a handgun shooting session last Saturday and there were two gentlemen that brought along handguns that they occasionally “go to” when going out and about. During the shooting drills, one guy couldn’t find the magazine release when attempting a reload. This happened to him 3 times during the event. The other guy drew his pistol and didn’t remember to release the safety on his gun because he normally carries a double action gun. This happened several times as well.

    After the shoot was over, both these guys realized a very valuable lesson. If you switch platforms from what you are accustomed to you will make mistakes. The more pressure involved, the higher the likelihood of errors.

    The morel to the story is this…
    If you’re going to carry different guns, then you had better practice with the gun you intend to carry until muscle memory takes over. If you don’t, and you find yourself in a life threatening situation, it would be very bad to forget to click the safety off when presenting your weapon.

    I carry one gun. A Kimber CDP 1911 in .45. I practice with it as often as I can so if ever the SHTF I hopefully will be ready and in a stressful situation, muscle memory and training takes over.

    great point BigV and im in 100% agreement. thats why ALL of my carry guns are striker fired and without safteys. keltecs and glocks have the same basic mechanics. with one in the chamber, unholster, point and squeeze;)

    I carry a can of beer in one hand and a cigarette in the other, with the occasional VERY sharp pencil behind my ear. That may sound threatning but I know now never to mess with Tom. After seeing his post I realize he carries enough gear to shoot you with both hands and both feet. ;)
