    Smile Curious What Fellow Spydie Fans Have Tastes In Guns/ Carry

    I along with I could only imagine a fair amount of you am an avid shooter. I have recently gotten into pistols and carrying and was curious to see what you guys fancy I grew up on shotgun, Remingtons are what I love and know and when it comes to rifle I have a love for the M1 Garand and its variants. What do you all love to shoot/ carry? (Pictures welcome!!!)

    I like the Glocks and have owned every kind of pistol worth owning. I have a Glock 17 in bed with me every night, a Glock 19 for the car and a Glock 26 for pocket when there's no time for a holster. Just drop the 26 in your pocket with you shirt on the outside and it disappears.

    Please stop doing that with a G26 RanCoWeAla, for yours and everyone else's safety. Glocks require a holster to prevent accidental discharge. Just my $.02

    Gunslinger, you are going to love the 357 Sig conversion barrel for your Glock 23! Start picking up ammo for it now because the price is ridiculous, that's if you can find it!!!

    Remington 870, Kel-Tec PF9, and a Ruger 10/22.
    I don't "carry" the Kel-Tec much, but when I do I just clip it inside my waistband. That's right ClipIt!!! No holster needed. I keep it in the car most of the time.
    I don't get to shoot as much as I like anymore. Hard to find time and ammo(for a decent price)....
    Don't mess with the Spyder because you think you're fly.
    Transcend the illusion.

    I don't carry a gun as part of my EDC, or own a pistol, although once I'm done college and build a house it will become a priority (I'll likely buy a Kimber .45, or some kind of .357 revolver). I do have a Model 870 20-gauge with the long barrel option for magpies, and a couple .22's for coyote duty.

    If I could Carry and was old enough I would carry a Glock 20 in a Black hawk Serpa holster and have a marlin papoose as a pack rifle, As well as a Smith and Wesson M&P40 at home.

    I'm with those of you who like the Remington's. I have an 870 Wingmaster Lightweight in 20 ga. with 20" smoothbore and rifle sights. It shoots slugs like a rifle plus just as good with bird shot and #4 Buckshot. If you could own only one gun that would be the only way to go go.I also have a 552 BDL Deluxe. 22 that shoots shorts, longs and long rifles. I loaded the magazine one time staggered with a sht long and LR all the way and it fired all without a hitch but what was wild each one sounded totally different. I want a model 700 in 7mm08 and one of the 1100 Commemoratives that came out this year in 28 guage.

    I have and carry many guns. Currently my favorites are Ruger, Para-USA (Para-Ordnance), Winchester, S&W, and Kahr. I carry everyday and almost everywhere. If you see me in my yard getting the mail in my gym shorts, I'm carrying. Revolvers are still a weak point in my collection, but I will remedy that soon.

    5 shot myself


    .500 it's a little bigger than a .38 (no CCW with it ) but it's a blast to shoot.

    i have really gotten into fireamrs lately...hence I haven't been on here as much as I would like. I have a Ruger 1911 which i absolutely love to shoot. Barely any recoil and I am really accurate with it. I asked around and that is the norm i guess. I don't like the fact that you once you chamber a round that the trigger is half cocked. At the range it is fine but not for carry or even having next to your bed at nite....just seems a bit too dangerous to me even with the beaver tail safety....cleaning/disassembly is a bit of a pita too. Are there any models that are like the 1911 w/o having the trigger half cocked when a round is chambered? I also have a M&P shield in a 40, a glock 17, and I just picked up a Ruger 10-22 take down. I also have my oold service pistol a Beretta 92D Centurian which after shooting the other guns I think it is a complete POS. Not worth shooting just because I have to clean it after but it was my first so I am keeping it for sentimental reasons.

    Back in October, after 2+ years of procrastination, I finally got around to taking the required course and putting in for my CWP. Decided I needed something a bit newer than my 50 year old Detective Special, so I bought this...


    It's a S&W Model 637. From what I hear, it takes SC SLED 3-4 months to process a CWP application, so I still have a couple months to go before I can carry it.

    Tony, I can't speak for your Ruger, or any of the newer 1911's, but on any that are more than 30 years old releasing the slide leaves it fully cocked regardless of whether you chamber a round or just close the action with the clip out. There is a half-cock notch, but the only way to utilize it requires pulling the trigger. A few folks carried that way, but the normal carry mode for a 1911 was fully cocked and locked. Some folks relied on just the grip safety, some on that plus the side safety, some on one or both plus a holster with a retention strap that would prevent the hammer from hitting the firing pin.
