    What size firearm do you OC?

    I carry a full size 3lb (when loaded) CZ 75B...and next friday, I'm buying a tiny Ruger LCP.

    Any of you OC really small guns? or excessively large guns? I'm thinking I'll still carry my CZ, and use the Ruger as a BUG, or CC it when I want to be somewhere without standing out so much.

    I OC a Glock 22, and when I CC it is either that or a Glock 27.

    I carry a gun because a Police Officer is too heavy.

    I carry either a RIA TCM 8 3/4 OAL or a Taurus PT99 8 1/2 OAL , both are full size.

    My reasons to OC
    1. to raise awareness of the legality of open carry in Michigan
    2. To raise awareness that good people carry guns
    3. A deterrent to people so that I won't be targeted
    4. Because it's more comfortable than CC in most situations
    5. Because I can and want to
    6. Because it's perfectly legal
    7. Self defense

    The Taurus PT92 & PT99 are probably my favorite firearms. Berettas only way nicer.

    Isn't the TCM a .22? If so...why the hell are you carrying a .22?

    From what I just read, the TCM is a 9mm case necked down to .22. It's supposed to be like a 5.7. The gun can also be converted to 9mm just by changing out the barrel. Neat idea I think.

    "Rock Island Armory cartridge designer Fred Craig said the proprietary .223-based pistol caliber round sends a 40 grain jacketed hollow point bullet downrange at 2100 feet per second. The goal was to make a 1911-type pistol “with the same weight, but double the firepower and delivering more foot pounds of energy."

    Also The pistol comes with a 9mm barrel and recoil spring. I carry it as a 9mm with a 17rnd Magazine.

    I OC both a full-size and compact.

    I can say that I get more notice when I use a brown leather OWB holster.
    I'll make you an offer: I will argue and fight for all of your rights, if you will do the same for me. That is the only way freedom can work. We have to respect all rights, all the time--and strive to win the rights of the other guy as much as for ourselves.

    If I am equal to another, how can I legitimately govern him without his express individual consent?

    There is no human being on earth I hate so much I would actually vote to inflict government upon him.

    they usually arent carried, long arms are for when pistols become highly impractical due to weather and out in the middle of nowhere.but thats not a topic for OCDO...

    and be more specific, i do have more than one shotgun you know...and one of them technically is a pistol.

    Smith & Wesson Govt. 1911 (5") in a Serpa level 2. Probably going to swap out the 1911 with a full-size S&W M&P in .357 Sig soon. I also carry a Sig P238 BUG in the front pocket. I would OC the Sig, but I can't find a good retention holster for it; I prefer more than passive retention (e.g. a switch, hood, strap, etc.). Most any holster is made to conceal it or looks ridiculous for OC. The holster it came with has practically no retention, and basically broke when it was tightened up. A piece of crap, just like the holster that came with the Springfield XD9 Subcompact.
