I thought you knew....
Steel barrelled fountain pen, tie/scarf/dog lead
My newest revolver. Ruger SP101. Nice double action revolver - .357 Magnum. 5 rounds. Nice and light. A dream to shoot. Easy to conceal.
The RUC used to issue the ruger GP101 it was a six shot .38 but like all rugers built like a tank! Do you use a holster? the only one I have tried that wasnt a service pistol was one with no spur on the hammer.
I use a Bianchi 6 waistband holster. Good price and comfortable. Does the job. Conceals it well.
Oh man Hannibal I tell you what. I practically had tears in my eyes shooting this baby.
My heart skipped a beat just looking at it!
Favourite weapon by far is the chain whip but still working out the kinks, it would be nice to not have the business end in my own face at some point, and generally not very practical in extreme close quarters. When it comes to weapons I can actually use without injuring myself the trusty knife has to be number one; small enough to have on you at all times and it doesn't need to be used to cause major harm, a few superficial wounds and most assailants will understand that it's probably a good idea to step away. Short sticks (eskrima, kali) will always stay a sure favourite. Instead of a Kubotan I used to carry a permanent marker; can be used for all your pressure point strikes and no question about it's legality.
Using the .38+p+ is a powerful round.
Some say far more powerful than the standard 9mm para
I'm surprised that more people don't go "hammerless". I'm partial to revolvers but never hear anyone comment on the design without the hammer. How come?
Hammerless revolver seem to be a great idea when carrying in a pocket or a purse. It is a concept to keep the hammer from snagging
The main "con" to it is a less control feature.
With a hammer, one can control to ****-decock.
Also, there are many holsters out there which cover the hammer until the revolver is removed
My carry gun is a Sig P229 in 9mm, and my edc knife is a CS Recon 1
How do you rate the Recon? My EDC varies between my Carson M-16 or my CS Pocket Bushman
I have my eye on the CS Spartan, but it is flipping HUGE!
Love my recon, strong, holds an edge, and easy to resharpen. I also have a voyager for days I need something lighter. Its not much different except for the weight. The spartan is a monster, but they are pretty. And intimidating.
have you looked at the Espada?
Yeah - and the Rajah! Great tools, far too big for EDC!!!
*profanity thought* :wow:
Figures I would miss the obvious.... I still have warm fuzzies for the S&W 357.
I also went through a phase where I was hunting around for converted replicas of the old Navy Colts. From what I hear now, they're not such a great idea and I think I have grown out of my Black Powder infatuation.
BTW: the only knife I have carried was a GERBER Mark II. Brought it back from Overseas and promptly lost it. Crap. I never bought into the whole "big and bad" approach to knives, but I am really stunned at how hard it is to find a solid dependable fixed-blade. Seems that the SOG mystique has taken over the Markets, like people are going to don their cammies and go low-crawling through the neighborhood. Sheesh.
"Back in the day", we weren't concerned with CCW, we simply carried them to and from the home, car, owned business, banking
There was a "Magnum Fad", and I had a S&W 686
Nowadays, Walther has a nice little whopper that is for CCW in .40
Can't blame you on the replicas. People like to have a nostagic item as close to real deal without having to pay through the nose
Gerber produces some fine quality, in my parts, these are known as "Gentleman's Tool" because of the "G" reference
