Whos packin, carrying, straped. Whatever you wanna call it.

I just figured I would put this thread up to see how many people feel its needed to carry a gun these days.
I myself do.
On my bike in the car where ever.
We can all agree theyre are alot of idiots and stupid people out there.
So if you want list what you got and a reason.

SC XD-9 OD here.

I don't, but I've thought about it. A girlfriend of mine does, and when Chris found out, he began thinking I should as well.

But even if not packing when riding/driving, I've got a mild interest in shooting (just firing range), and have contemplated getting a Walther PPK (that just fit my hand very naturally, felt "right.") Dunno if I ever will, though. It's yet another expensive hobby, and bikes are much more fun.

I think the one I wanted was close to a grand at the time I looked at it. But then going to the firing range/ammo, etc... adds up, too.

I think I want a Springfeild 19-11. And thats gonna cost me.
If your lookin for price saving make sure to but a 9mm.. Way cheaper, in the long run. Glock 26 would be good for you.

I dunno about the 26 specifically, but the other Glocks I "tried on" didn't feel as natural in my hand. Nice, though.

The 26 is the subcompact. My XD just feels right for me too. I've had full size mids and now subs, i'm not a small guy but i can conceal a smaller gun easier.

I'm just not sure if I'd ever carry/conceal. I'm trying to remember what my GF carries, though. She's super tiny, as is her piece, but it still felt substantial in my hand.

you can get a membership, that saves alot of money and you can also load your own ammo, takes a little cash to start, but def worth it in the long run!!

S&W makes a small .38 revolver called a "Lady Smith" its a 5 shot pistol, very light, small, and still deadly as hell.

Ah, eventually... I guess if I were convinced of the "need" I might see it as more of a worthwhile expenditure. But not just yet... (I'm sure I will eventually though)

That could well be what she has (though I'm thinkin' it's a 22). But 'light and small' aren't big selling points for me. I don't have tiny hands, so if it's too small, it'll feel awkward.


(I do love the feel of a good 45 revolver, though! Hurts like hell to shoot it, but DAYUM, you know you're blowin a hole in SOMETHING... Just highly impractical... )

i grew up with all kinds of guns and bows, etc...I can shoot a rifle, and a compound bow but I have never felt the need to have one in my own home...maybe one day I might but not right now...the good news is, i havent shot any weapon in about 12 years and picked up my lil sis' bb gun and took out the target like I had never quit practicing!! So i figure if the time comes, at least I will still know what I am doing...

as for carrying a concealed on my person, no way...I would too afraid something bad might happen...i would keep it in a vehicle or something...

They dont make a .45 revolver. A .45 is a semi-auto. They do however make a .38, .44, and a .50 that are revolvers though.

Could have been a 44. I dunno... wasn't mine (obviously). I was at the firing range with a friend, and an older man was there with his son, offered to let me fire his a few times. I thought he said it was a 45, bu then it was several years ago.

I pack a small Raven 25 semi. I like it because its small enough to put in my boot or back, but will do some damage if need be.

Finally back on 2 wheels

I dont have to pack! I am a great improvisationalist and can be my own deadly weapon! Mess with me and I will go Jackie Chan on your a$$
