    I started carrying a Kahr P380 with my summer attire, shorts and T-shirts. I chose this platform for summer carry because its about the smallest centerfire pocket pistol on the market and it doesn't have to penetrate multiple layers of clothing. Some think the .380 round isn't adequate but with the current bullet technology used now I don't know anyone who would want to be shot with it. In winter its usually a Glock 19, 9mm. Occasionally, I'll carry a 1911 in .45 acp.

    All legally concealed.


    I love my SC, flaws notwithstanding.


    What ammo do you use for a defense load in the .380? I'm curious...

    I like the COR BON or the Remington Golden Sabers (they feed best in the sig P238 I carry as a deep backup)

    I like concealed carry better. Open carry makes people feel uncomfortable, like if I was on a date with a guy who I hoped would get up the guts to kiss me, I wouldn't open carry and make him feel like he might get shot if he tries.

    It depends totally on the environment and the circumstances. If i am on a isolated stream fishing by myself it makes sense to have a weapon open and obvious. First it stays out of the river in a shoulder holster. secondly its not going to alarm people out in the middle of no where

    walking around downtown cincinnati in a suit a Roy Rogers fast draw rig is going to look stupid and scare the crap out of the average person

Paying > $12 for 100 rounds of CCI Mini mag 22LR is an outrage, in Baltimore I paid $6.

    Heck if you look @ Smith and Wesson's catalog, they make different (read: crappier) AR-15's so that they're legal in MD. I had to drive to PA to get my 25 round mags for my 10/22.

    Maryland SUCKS for gun owners, but there is some hope.
    yeah thats horrible and why somethings should not be left up to the states but I have always felt that way.
    Well I hope things get better in there

    Now if you're walking down the road wearing hunter's camo and carrying a shotgun or deer rifle along the treeline, nobody is going to bother you. You can carry loaded guns in your car without any permits and it is legal. But if you want to carry on your person it is concealed and CCW.


    We're working on it
    .
    well I hope you succeed
    shouldnt be any place in america like that accept government property, DIRECT government property like courthouses etc schools and libraries dont count

    agreed not to mention its a huge loophole against the 2nd, quick background checks are one thing, flat out not allowing it is another

    I don't have a problem with the background check system, it could be more efficient but as long as it's a one time thing per purchase it's fine, open carry is as honest as it gets so outlawing it is really just making a law for the sake of making a law. I do tell people that concealed carry permits are a legitimate compromise due to the fact that criminals tend to engage in it more often than open carry and police could use that law as a tool to get them off the streets for a while before they hurt someone.
    Neither side in an argument can find the truth when both make an absolute claim on it.

    Agreed thats why i was shocked some states outlawed that, like i said some things should not be a state decision and IMO that is one of them.

    Im fine with a background check and license but I feel my license would be nation wide like my drivers license.

    I'm fine with a federal carry license, if that's too much for people to handle I'd also be fine with states recognizing other state issued CCW permits under the 2A. Where it boils down with me is that states should retain all powers not delegated to the federal, federal needs to remand non-delegated powers back to the states in a reasonably timely manner, and BOR protections should not be within the purview of either the state or federal, though we could reasonably ask the limits of every right under necessary and proper. IOW, the only limits upon rights should be provable harm to the rights of others, owning and bearing a weapon for instance doesn't hurt anyone rather it's the illicit or negligent use of such that does, same with the bad side of the first amendment, curse words hurt no one, but fraud, perjury, slander, etc. is a different story.

    The best saying I've ever heard is "your rights end at the other person's nose".
