    show what you carry!

    saw this on a couple other state threads. thought it could be fun.

    so post your daily carry weapon, CC or OC, knives, anything you carry .


    this is my carry, a M-tech folder, My lucky zippo, and my Kahr CW40 with houge grips, upgraded williams red fire sights, upgraded recoil spring and titanium firing pin, plus a 3lb trigger ;-) loaded with 165 grain horniday critical defense HPJ's and a cheapo IWB blackhawk holster.Click image for larger version.

    Modified DeSantis Cozy Partner with Blade-Tech rubber straps. Galco mag holder

    That "cheapo IWB blackhawk holster" is actually quite dangerous. They do not hold the gun in well (I had an Uncle Mike's equivalent). The belt clip would frequently release during dry fire draw practice and come up with the gun. It is not made of stiff material. Can you imagine how embarrassing it would be to draw down on a robber only to realize your holster was covering the gun?

    Please do yourself a favor and buy a good carry holster soon.

    Do not be this guy (though his holster was soft leather):

    Does anyone here actually believe that the Founders were sitting around in John Adams' tavern UNARMED because they believed a bar should be a gun free zone?

    spent $40 on a glaco stow n go.....does the same thing. soooo i wear my belt extra tight instead haha. holds great. and works great as an ankle/boot holster too.

    probably gonna end up with a kangaroo holster or belly band next weekend. depending on what is more compfortable :-) just got the BH to replace the stow n go, which lifts with the gun even more so than the BH haha

    Heh...I thought that too. Then I tried running around, did some sit-ups, etc...things to simulate a fight or various movements. It failed Some "good" holsters will fail too.

    This Cozy Partner has about had it, which is why I put it up there. It's nearly 12 years old and the inside is worn smooth. Once the last bit of adjustment is gone, I'll have to get a new one.

    Here's mine (NH):



    CZ 75D Compact, Keltec P3AT in a homemade leather holster, "Lightning" switchblade, keys, phone, swiss army knife, Promag tactical pen, folding pliers, a nail-clipper, keys, and a razr.

    If I'm going to Maine, I leave the switchblade out.
