    Where's your "why"?

    I'm currently carrying my Walther PPQ .40 cal. I alternate between concealed and open, depending on what I'm doing, where I am, etc. It's not the easiest thing to conceal, however.

    As such, I'm expecting my Walther PPS .40 cal within the next few days. I'll still OC my PPQ or my XDm and will use the PPS for concealed. It will also make for a nice BUG when I'm OCing.

    Actually, in the winter months, I carry a Beretta 96 inox...........as for why?.........#1..because I can....#2..because my wife and I were attacked by a tandem of a pitbulls, a few years back, never felt that helpless....#3...too many wack jobs allowed to walk the streets and procreate, raising more wack jobs(not their fault)....#4...too many breakins occuring.....#5..because I like to.....#6..because others do, illegally...I need to be able to protect, whatever it may be that needs protection...." I don't carry it, because i'm afraid, be because it enables me to be unafraid". Quote by Maj. L. Caudill USMC (ret) " Why the gun is civilized". If you've never read it before, google it.

    If you need to ask "why" then you are probably at the wrong internet forum.

    I think the WHY here is supposed to be geared towards WHY do you choose said carry piece..........

    Not WHY do you choose to carry in general (i.e., the merits of such).......

    OC - Beretta 92FS Inox - Cause it's probably the most beautiful modern handgun
    CC primary - Glock 19 - I trust Glocks and the 19 has the firepower and sight radius that makes it a good combat firearm
    CC back up - Ruger LCP - small, lightweight, flat, concealable, and dependable

I have seen people purchasing firearms at stores, that obtained a CCW, that never fired a handgun in their life, and probably do not intend to become proficient with it...they just want to have it, and carry it, because they think that it may benefit them at some point....these are the people that bother me, and I really don't want to be around them. That's what I mean by they carry just because they can......

    They just want to do something they legally can? The horror.

    I am all about training, and the people you mentioned should train more, heck we all should, but I don't like the sense of elitism going on here.

    92, 96 whatever. I just happen to have a lot of other 9s, so keeping the differing types of calibers as low as possible keeps me sane when reloading.

    Glock 23 about 85% of the time. The other 15% is distributed among a Glock 35, Glock 20 or Ruger SP101. Maybe 30-40% of the time I'll have a Kel-Tec P3AT as a BUG. Why? Because these have all been 100% reliable, have good accuracy, aren't too annoying to carry, and because I like a gun that is simple to use: Draw and shoot.

    I dont have a CC pistol yet (low on $$$), but my OC sidearm is a Ruger P91DC. I carry it because I cant carry a cop.
    What part of "shall not be infringed" don't you understand?

    What day it it ?

    Right now, a Colt Officers model .45acp in A Milt Sparks Versa Max 2. Why? My favorite pistol I have owned. I shoot very well with it and it's compact.

    Other days it's likely to be a Commander size .45acp because I have always shot 1911's (almost exclusively for 25 years or so) and a 5" 1911 is just a bit too long for me to wear comfortably in an IWB holster. Or a Browning hi power (because it's so thin and comfortable to carry and holds 14 rounds) or an HK P7m8 (compact, accurate and has a unique operation).

    For what it's worth this Idaho guy carries a Springfield Professional model because I like 1911s, it shoots great, and because I can.

    You don't belong to OCCUPY, do you? Does it REALLY matter to you what I think? I started out with a simple thread question. Someone asked me to clarify, and I did. If you think it's ok to hang around people who carry weapons, that do not have a clue about firearms, that's your business. I tend to stay away from those types, legal right, or not. Just because something is a right, doesn't make it right, when it threatens the safety of others..like I said, if you're such a strong believer in rights, especially when it affects others, then you go hang out with them. Maybe you can teach them something about rights, but you never know what will happen in the process. If you really care, I think that there should be some kind of training involved, before someone can just walk around with a firearm, but I don't make the laws. People that walk around with firearms, that have zero experience, are just plain dangerous...and this comes from someone who grew up with firearms, in my home, since birth, and had a father who was a gunsmith. You have to admit, people walking around with firearms, that have zero experience, is not a comfortable thing. You said, yeah, maybe they should have some more training...maybe they should have ANY training.

    Nice personal attack.

    I would prefer people to have trainig, and I'd be happy to help teach them, but I am against a sense of elitism. Just because they aren 't as trained as me doesn't mean they shouldn't have their rights. Other are much more trained than I am, and I don't want my rights taken away. I think it dangerous when you start deciding who is and isn't worthy of their rights. "No training? Sorry, you can't exercise your second ammendment rights.". I'll grant you that they are more dangerous, but even those that have lived with firearms for years still experience NDs. If they, the new owners, follow the basic safety rules then everyone will stay safe. I'd rather encourage them to get training or help them myself than to tell them that they aren't safe enough to enjoy the second ammendment or to exercise their inherrent right of self defense.
