More gun talk...

Just got my concealed carry permit and looking into guns to carry. I got all pumped up over the Taurus Judge but I am starting to realize as cool as it is, I probably will not be carrying it on me everyday... I am now thinking about the Ruger LCR It will probably be the way I go. Just wondering if anyone has any experience with the Ruger (Neil?????)

From what I recall on a thread on Calguns the Ruger Judge is illegal in CA. Let me see if I can find the link. Anyway congrats on livinging in a free state.

Burke,

I could tell you a Glock 19 is a great one, and if you were suites a Walther ppk .380 is awesome, even in the front pocket of yyour Jeans .

Now if Revolvers is what you want , the Ruger or a 38 Special will be the way to go

Good luck in your choice, but before you decide whatever is that you choose, do yourself a favor, go to a store and shoot all of them, see how they grow on you

Glock 19 is perfect for carry, and holds a lot of ammo.

you should add VA Non Resident Permit, covers some other states tha tFL doesn't , or go the extra mile and get UT as well, then other than the few PITA states, you are pretty much covered everywhere

X2, however, if I were to go that small, I think the Para 45 or XD 45 will have my vote, but what can I say, I like the 33 rounds mag on my G19

No doubt after checking the mouth... I never want to kill an "innocent snake", but we run a wedding venue, lots of brides and children around (including my own). Don't take any chances...

I'm a fan of the Glock 27 (or 26 for 9mm).
Or for revo S&W Airweight 442 or 340.

Always trust a Glock

I have two Glock’s I carry for dinner and a movie with the wife I carry my Glock 30. It a 45 ACP with 20 rounds. It is a small frame so fits on the belt nice. In the river I carry my Glock 21 SF another 45 ACP

I have a Judge. Perfect to keep in the truck for wheeling when you happen across a potential Rattlesnake meal. Much easier than carrying a full size shotgun but as you know, its not a light gun. As a walk around concealed choice, I personally would take a Glock or XD.

H&K USP Compact. 9mm, .40, or .45 your choice. H&K is the gun to have when you're being shot at. I know.

A gentle reminder to all of us:

Practice...Practice ...Practice

Go to the range a lot.
At home unload your weapon put your ammo in another room and practice in front of a mirror.
Practice strong hand.
Practice weak hand.
Practice shooting on the move.
Practice clearing jams.
Practice while seated (like in your car).
Practice magazine changes.
Don't let your ego keep you from getting brushed up with a little professional training.

Clean that fawwking weapon (ha,ha). If there's lint all over the hammer, its probably between the hammer and the firing pin, too. Are there dust bunnies in your barrel? A gun carried daily requires more attention than one that sits on a shelf.

I've been told most gunfights happen at a range of 3' and are over in 3 seconds.

You should be able to draw and hit your target in 1.5 seconds. I'm sure some here can. Others, like me, need practice.

I didn't mean to sound so "preachy" but serious stuff comes out that way. These are all things I need to work on.

If, heaven forbid, one day I open the paper to read that one of us was involved in a ruckus I want to read that you survived.



On a lighter note...

Judge=Fugly!
