    OK, this is something I had wondered about some time again when I started reading and studying articles in the gun magazines.

    We have "Virginia Tuck", carrying your sidearm with your shirt tucked behind it so as to keep it generally OC legal.

    We have "Mexican Carry", carrying your sidearm tucked inside your waist band not utilizing a holster.

    We have "IsraeliCarry", carrying your sidearm with an empty chamber, thus to shoot, you draw and then rack the slide.

    While these 3 examples are forms of carry, I don't want to limit it to just names for various forms of carry but ANYTHING weapons related. Anyone else know of other names or places used?

    This post is just for fun and to see what other ones I might be missing out on.

    I don't know for sure. I have tried to research this in the past without finding a definitive etymology. Apparently "dutch load" has been used in some contexts to mean trying to carry too large of a load. Also, "Dutch" has been used for nearly 300 years as a pejorative prefix in English (Dutch uncle, Dutch courage, Dutch wife, etc). Hence "Dutch load" meaning a non-typical or unusual method of loading or trying to carry too many different types of ammo. Just guessing here.

    I have never found anything indicating how old the term is. It could date back as far as "buck & ball loading" - loading a ball and 2-3 buckshot into a smooth bore muzzle loader - or have been coined as an alternate term for that loading. Or it could be a more recent term but probably not later than 19th or very early 20th century as coining "Dutch ____" seems to have fallen out of fashion after that point.

    "His and Hers" carry.

    This would be when a couple are both packing.

    "Dutch carry", could be applied to the above "his and hers". Kind of like an extention of "going Dutch" on a date. Each person providing their own personal protection.
