Reader Comments of the Week
“Great gun! Fat bottom feels good in the hand. I carry in my back pocket and it’s very easy to deploy.”
– ED, in response to The Concealed Carry Capabilities of the Springfield Armory Hellcat
“Admitted: I don’t live in bear country… But we have a serious wild hog problem here. And getting to the age where running and climbing are not viable options any longer simplifies my choices. I carry a Charter Arms Mag Pug XL chambered for .41 Rem Mag… Full power factory ammo in a 23oz gun takes some getting used to, but I figure it is easier than getting used to an extended ICU stay, or worse. Definitely not for everyone, but it is also my favorite CCW option.”
– VERN, in response to Best 6 Handguns for Bear Country
“I prefer a .45 acp to a 9mm for self defense… A .45 will generally stop any attacker with one or at most two hits. My favorite carry guns are Colt defender and a commander, both are versions of the old but effective 1911 designs and serve very well as defensive everyday carry guns. Most times I carry in a cross draw iwb holster as it is much more comfortable to me to wear all day and takes the weight of the gun off of your hip. It also allows you to draw and fire with either hand.”
– CLEMAN, in response to Everyday Carry Gear: Where to Begin
