March Holster Contest!
« on: March 08, 2017, 03:09:02 PM »
We're going to be doing a give away, basically a $50 discount on a holster of your choice. The drawing will take place on the first of the month, and the specific rules  for the drawing will be laid out in an introductory post. We are still working out all the details and whatnot on this whole setup so things may change going forward.

Also one other change we're going to do going forward is Steve T will be doing the drawing portion of the contest so expect an update on the last thread etc.

But for this first one here is the rules. You need to post to get a number assigned once that number is assigned you will not get another number if you post again. So your not increasing your odds by posting more than once though your welcome to continue the conversation with more posts. Those numbers I'll assign in order, IE the first person to post will get #1 and second will get #2 and so on. Once the thread is locked say a day before the end of the month I'll go to a random number generator online and have it pick a number from the posts then I'll put a final post in the thread with the persons forum name announcing they won.

Then once the drawing is complete I'll send you a private message on WTA to get your full name as it will be listed on your order. When you place the order copy a link to the WTA thread so I can make sure that I've got the right person etc. And then I'll take care of applying the discount to the order for you. You'll still be responsible for the balance on the order once I get ready to build it out like I normally do less the $50 discount.

For now I'm not going to put a limit on the time frame you have to use the discount within, but I'd prefer guys use them fairly quickly just so I don't have to keep too many active at once and make things more confusing on my end.

Do keep in mind this doesn't effect where your order falls in my lead time. So once the contest is over, and the person who won places an order it falls into my normal timetable. Also that discount doesn't apply to orders already paid or complete. However if you've got an order still waiting that hasn't been paid for, then I'd be more than willing to apply the discount to that order for you.



Now onto this month's contest and how to enter.

So for this month I've got a two part question and this one might be tough for some since it's a compromise question;) So if you had to pick a single gun and position/holster to carry for the rest of your life what would it be?

I'm not eligible but I'll type mine up as an example below:
Quote
This one is a tough one for me since I do swap gun to gun fairly often and I swap overall platform the same way. Also this would require some changes to my current routine going forward. But for me I'd almost want to say something simple like pocket carry an LCP/P3AT because that is limiting in firepower, but nearly unlimited in concealability and ease of carry. But I think I'll take somewhat middle ground for the gun I'd take a 5in. 1911 Government model in 45acp. The reason is I really like the 1911, I prefer the full size slightly to the smaller versions and since the slide will be in the pants length doesn't matter too much overall for my build/size. On the holster I'd take my Texas IWB rig and I'll even say without the OWB conversion not because I wouldn't like the option;) But rather goes against the game of sorts in being able to carry it in either manner. So a Texas IWB because it would be comfortable generally in most cases with that 1911, conceal in most clothing bar absolutely light clothing, I'd be able to tuck a shirt and somewhat open carry if the need arose. So that would give me a slightly larger dose of concealment compared to an OWB and just overall would be slightly more practical in difficult carry environments.

I'd certainly miss my variety of guns and carry options and it pains me to pick just one;) But I think for me that would be the best most practical answer day to day. But I want to hear what yours would be, since we all live in different environments with different levels of concealment required etc.

    I wouldn't be happy about it, but a Glock 20 at 4:00 IWB.  It would print occasionally, but it would be enough handgun that I would always feel prepared.  And would be concealed enough I could make about any situation work.

    But, my common practice is a Glock 20 or 29 at 1:00 IWB with a shirt tail over the gun.  However in a one gun/position forever, this wouldn't work for times I have to dress up and tuck in.  Luckily at 4:00 I can usually conceal the larger gun.

    K/L frames carry well enough with a rounded butt. I'd carry my 686+ at 4:00 with my Luke Adams IWB holster. I feel it is a good compromise between the Sig P228 (which prints sometimes) and S&W 642 (which the definition of an optimist is someone who carries an airweight revolver and one speed strip).

    Dunno if I'm eligible to enter since I won back in December and still haven't placed my order yet (I'll get in soon, I promise!), but I'll give it a go anyway.

    Either a CZ P-01, preferably one of the new Omega Convertible models, or a new S&W Model 66 with the 2.75" barrel. Either way, the holster would be a Luke Adams Crossroads holster at about the 4:00 position.

    You're right Luke, this is a tough decision.  But, given my current occupation, and dress code, I'm gonna say Ruger LCR, left front pocket (yes, in a holster).  It's not ideal, it has limited capacity, but it carries well given how I have to dress most of the time, and how I dress when not at work.  So, call me an optimist if you will, but if I need more gun hopefully I'll be able to steal from a perp I just defended myself against.

    And I already won in September :clap, so count me out.

    Well, I never win anything, but here goes,...

    I used to carry iwb at 4-430 with a crossroads holster, and while it worked well enough, I developed lower back pain. I switched to 3:00 owb and the pain went away. I alternate between a Kahr p380 pocket carried in a holster and a Kahr pm9 owb at 3:00 and sometimes both.

    But I have to make a choice which isn't easy.  I'm going to go owb at 3:00 for the holster. As for pistol, It's between the HK VP9 that I recently acquired, or Glock 30SF. Since the verdict on long term reliability is still out on the VP9, I'm going with the Glock 30SF.

    Well i am actually finding myself in the enviable position :banghead, of not being able to carry at all for personal defense. Since i moved back to Canada from Vermont for family medical issues, Nursing school(Yeah G.I. BILL+ US to Cad$ exchange rate), and getting married to an awesome woman. I am also having to live by the "I can only have so many guns." limitations. I chose my 1 Pistol to be a SIG P226 9mm, and since i use it in competition for IPSC/IDPA here, I don't need an IWB. I'm limited to 10rnd mags too... >:(. So i must make do for the time being, 3 more years before returning to the land of the free....Where all my otehr guns are currently residing in storage, I get to visit them every now and then..

    I would pick what I have now (but don't always carry, usually I carry a Glock 19 for work, Ruger LCP custom everywhere else), a Sig Legion P226 carried at the 4 o'clock position in an Adams Texas IWB, with one mag in horizontal carry.  The one change I would do is instead of a 9mm, if I was limited to one gun, would choose the .357SIG.

    I'm actually happy with my Kahr K9 as my choice - it conceals well, and I'm comfortable with it.  I do wish I had another magazine, so I had a second spare.  Carrying it at 3:40-4 o'clock works just fine (particularly since I have the unfortunate body style of plenty of padding up front, none in my posterior  :( ).

    Right now, when I carry it's OWB, but I'm open to IWB... just not an option easy to find for the Kahr.

    How is the VP9 not proven? I thought it had a long reliable track record?

    Also, nice choice for the GLock 30  :thumbup1. I need to carry mine more often. I still don't get what differentiates the SF from the normal frame. It's not as thin as a Glock 19 now is it? Cos if that's what SF means, then I need to get me the new hotness.

    So for this month I've got a two part question and this one might be tough for some since it's a compromise question;) So if you had to pick a single gun and position/holster to carry for the rest of your life what would it be?
    The carry position is easy for me - IWB, shifting between 3:00-5:00 depending upon the exact pistol.  It is not the ultimate position for deep concealment, but it offers what I feel to be the best compromise between the other options.


    I will give a 'one pistol' answer, but first I want to toss out a few ideas, each of which I have carried in an Adams Texas:

    Walther PPSm2 - This would be my choice if I needed deep concealment in NPEs, or if I routinely wore fitted clothing.  Very small, discreet, and for being a glorified pocket pistol, is chambered in 9mm.

    BHP - On the other end of the spectrum would be a quite large pistol.  Up to 15 rounds of 9mm, this is the option if one routinely expects trouble.  Not light or small by any means, mine concealed Very well in a Texas.  Paired with a real gun belt, it is so comfortable that it can literally be forgotten for a time.

    K-frame snub - Not the easiest-concealing gun, but not undoable either.  I personally do like revolvers, though I have trouble justifying them for carry.  I would not choose to have a .38 model for my 'one gun,' but a magnum Model 66 2.75" such as Raptor suggested...  Tempting...

    But those ^ are not the ones I would choose.  If it really came down to it, I would find a more reliable version of my first ever handgun and go with that:


    SIG Sauer P225A1 - My first pistol was a Sig P6, but it is currently not reliable for carry.  However, If I was limited to one pistol to carry for all time and eternity, to include a reasonable ability to carry in NPEs, I would get one of the factory new P225A1s.

    Similar to, though a bit larger than Booksmart's Kahr, it is a metal-framed, single-stack 9mm.  It is slim, carrying easily and comfortably, but shoots like a full sized weapon when it comes time to draw.  8+1 rounds of 9mm+p with a lighting fast reload, I would consider the P225 to be the closest option to 'having it all.'

    I meant that the VP9 has not been available as long as the Glock. And if you believe the stuff written on other forums about it having too many parts, etc, blah blah blah. But so far I've had no problems in 500 rounds. The 30SF is somewhere around 5000.

    I'm not really sure what the SF means either, but it is what was available the day I was buying.

    I believe it means short frame, but people commonly think it's slim frame.

    Even then, short frame doesn't make much sense. As an owner of one I couldn't imagine anyone wanting it to be any shorter. With my standard size model, it's about as thick as it is long to begin with.

    The SF on Glocks means short frame. It refers to the distance from the back strap to the trigger. It makes a HUGE difference for us short fingered folks.

    If it's only one carry gun, that's easy.  The baby Kimber, a Pro Carry, bobtailed, with slim grip panels, an ambi safety,  and night sights.  It goes in an IWB holster at 8 o'clock, and the spare mag goes in a Gerber multi-tool pouch on the opposite side.

    If it was only one handgun period, forever, it would be a Ruger Redhawk in .45 Colt, with the cylinder machined to take moon clips.  That way I could use just about any .45 caliber handgun round.  Not sure how I'd carry it, probably the same way as the Kimber, and in the same position.  (You go with what works for you!)  Would certainly require some modification of the social wardrobe, though.

    Well, if I read the instructions right it does state one handgun and carry position from now on .  .  .   :panic  .  .  .  so here goes.  S&W Model 625 4" in an OWB holster - preferably one of Luke's at the 3:00 - 3:30 position.  I would want it on a dedicated gun belt and with a slight drop to the holster in case I needed to carry a pack.  Probably loaded with Buffalo Bore heavy .45 Auto Rim hard cast and reloads would be .45 ACP on full moon clips.

    I can't answer for him, or in the context of this thread, but if open carry was accepted where I am at, it would probably be a 4-5" N-frame on my hip right now.

    Pretty much stone axe reliable and not ammo sensitive.  I can usually hit what I'm aiming at with it.  Loaded with reduced power handloads it has enough finesse for small game and loaded hot and heavy it hits hard enough to take out anything but the big bears.  It will handle three of each kind of load in the same cylinder full and not miss a beat.  Try that with an auto pistol and you're usually asking for trouble.  If its doing nightstand duty nobody gives a rip about it being big and heavy.  Besides, I'd just feel silly walking around the Mazatzal Wilderness Area with a .380 in a pocket holster.   :bash

    Its not ideal for all applications but then what is?

    Pretty much stone axe reliable and not ammo sensitive.  I can usually hit what I'm aiming at with it.  Loaded with reduced power handloads it has enough finesse for small game and loaded hot and heavy it hits hard enough to take out anything but the big bears.  It will handle three of each kind of load in the same cylinder full and not miss a beat.  Try that with an auto pistol and you're usually asking for trouble.  If its doing nightstand duty nobody gives a rip about it being big and heavy.  Besides, I'd just feel silly walking around the Mazatzal Wilderness Area with a .380 in a pocket holster.   :bash

    Its not ideal for all applications but then what is?

     :hmm I'm trying to decide if you're more refined in your tastes than I am, or if you're just eccentric  :neener.

    Do we forget that cops were primarily still using 6 Shot Revolvers well through the mid 80's? It wasn't until after 1986 that most departments then relented and went to autos.
    Capacity wasn't really an issue then... and honestly really it's not even an issue now.
    Ray Chapman, used to say that the 125-grain Magnum load’s almost magical stopping power was the only reason to load .357 instead of .38 Special +P ammunition into a fighting revolver chambered for the Magnum round. I agree. - Massad Ayoob

    Paradoxically it is those who strive for self-reliance, who remain vigilant and ready to help others.

    You never mentioned which one, but I reckon "both" is a good answer.

    I must admit that I do like the red, white, and blue grips they show on the website  :thumbup1.

    Actually I prefer the fact that they can be reloaded very quickly with a full moon clip.
