October Holster Contest!
« on: October 14, 2016, 03:58:30 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.

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 this month I want to know what sort of gun your daily carry is and why. Extra points for how many rounds/mags you carry along with it.

I'm not eligible but I'll type mine up as an example below:

Quote
So for myself most of you guys already likely know I run a 1911 most of the time and my old Argentine 1911 full size is my primary carry gun most of the time. When I've got a 1911 on I've always got two spare mags, more to balance the weight of the gun than have extra ammo but both is a good enough reason for me.

    I'll start, but my reply is not in the running.

    What do/would I carry, and why?

    Usually a Ruger LCR357, because it hides easily in my front pocket, and I sit behind a desk for a living.  For outside of work, the same, or possibly a Sig P232 IWB on the right hip.  Why the Sig?  Because I have a holster for it.  Once I decide on the new Adams Holster@, I may be adding another gun to the lineup.  It might be will probably be a Ruger SR9c in a Texas Rig.  The SR9c has a safety, but it's small enough that I can ignore it.  I'm not operator enough to effectively run multiple platforms.  So for me all of my carry guns have to work the same - pull the trigger to go bang.  No switches to flip or buttons to push.  The three guns are different platforms (DAO revolver, DA/SA and striker fired semi-autos), but as long as the safety is off on the SR9c, they still all work the same: squeeze trigger - bang.

    Spare ammo?  A speedstrip in the opposite front pocket for the revolver, one spare mag otherwise.

    ok,  actually, a couple.

    duty daily carry.  Glock G22, with 2 extra mags for a total of 46 rounds on duty.   It's the issue duty weapon.  I carried the G27 for several years until I had to switch shooting hand.  I shot the G27 better right handed, but shoot the G22 better left hand.

    off duty daily carry,  mostly is my old S&W 3913 9mm,  2 extra mags, for a total of 25 rounds. solid pistol, more comfortable for me to carry in an IWB than either Glock.  I've had this pistol for about 28 years now and I consider it one of the best single stack 9's ever built.

    Glock 20.  For years it was a Para P16-40 in 10mm, but one day I stumbled on a thread at 1911forum.  One of the respondents had tracked rounds an stoppages in several handguns over the years.  Several 1911's in the mix, a couple of them really really nice ones.  All the 1911's got a "break-in" period before stoppages counted against them.  The third Gen S&W autos were an order of magnitude more reliable, and the Glocks another half order above that.

    To be honest, that does align with my experience.  My 1911 has a stoppage every couple hundred rounds.  My Glock is over 3000 without one yet.

    I generally have just the 15+1 on me, but usually I have a couple of KRISS extended Glock 20 mags in my bag, for a total of 80 rounds.

    i carry a gen 4 glock 19 iwb in a concealment solutions black mamba at 3:30 with two spare g17 mags owb  on the offside as much for balance as anything else for a total of 50 rounds of 124 grain +p hst.

    The glock is my carry gun because i have trained pretty extensively with it and and for me it is the right balance of capacity, shootability  and size
    IllinoisThere’s a story about a turtle and a scorpion. Scorpion is stranded on a river bank. Turtle sees this and asks Scorpion to get on his back and he’ll take him across the river. Scorpion gets on Turtle’s back and they go into the river. When they’re about halfway across, Scorpion stings Turtle. As Turtle is sinking, knowing they’re both going to die, he asks Scorpion "Why did you sting me, we’re both going to die?" and Scorpion says "It’s not my fault; it’s what I am."

    Mine is actually very similar to cpaspr's.   Currently I carry an SP101 .357 in my front right pocket in a cheap generic holster.  Spare ammo is usually a couple of speed strips in a back pocket, if I'm wearing my cargo pants, maybe a couple more speedloaders in the extra pockets.  I went with that because it is reasonably powerful and simple to operate.  That being said,  it does lack in capacity.

    After I get my Texas holster from the August contest,  I'll be switching to an SR9E I bought a few months ago.  It is also a simple, reliable gun.  It was also reasonably priced, so I don't have to worry about one of my high dollar guns getting beat up.   Having 17 rounds on tap will be a nice upgrade from the 5 I have now. 



    What do/would I carry, and why?

    Usually a Ruger LCR357, because it hides easily in my front pocket, and I sit behind a desk for a living.  For outside of work, the same, or possibly a Sig P232 IWB on the right hip.  Why the Sig?  Because I have a holster for it.  Once I decide on the new Adams Holster@, I may be adding another gun to the lineup.  It might be will probably be a Ruger SR9c in a Texas Rig.  The SR9c has a safety, but it's small enough that I can ignore it.  I'm not operator enough to effectively run multiple platforms.  So for me all of my carry guns have to work the same - pull the trigger to go bang.  No switches to flip or buttons to push.  The three guns are different platforms (DAO revolver, DA/SA and striker fired semi-autos), but as long as the safety is off on the SR9c, they still all work the same: squeeze trigger - bang.

    I carry a colt defender in a custom Adams Holsters Badwater.  Why, because 1911.  And because it is by far the best fitting gun I own.  I have a Para Hawg 9 & a CZ P01 that are close seconds, but that 3" colt just fits.  Thousands of rounds, 0 malfunctions.  The  Badwater completes the package and is without a doubt the most comfortable and functional rig I have ever used, stable and conceals nicely under a untucked t-shirt.

     I carry an extra 8rnd mag in a horizontal Magholder at 7 o'clock and another at 1 o'clock if I feel the need.  I also usually have a couple hundred extra rounds and a few Chip McCormick 10 rounders in a lock box in the truck.  I drive right by the range on the way home so I like to be able to stop when I can. 

    The only concern I have, which wasn't a concern at all until lately, is limited capacity.   I think there is an increasing possibility that one could easily find themselves in a situation facing multiple threats, not just one or two but several, and a single stack 1911, as much as I love the damn thing, just isn't going to cut it even with an extra spare mag or two. 

    I have several Glocks and I'm effective enough with them but I just have no love for them.  I like the P01 but not a fan of the long take up or reset, or a decocker in general but it does feel good, sight picture is as close to natural as I think possible. I bought a Cajun kit for it but just haven't put it in yet, that might help.

    All that said, I think  I'm leaning pretty heavily in the SIG p320 direction for my next primary EDC.  I like the ergonomics and the modular concept.

    I will confess that I don't carry much anymore. Reason being that until a month ago, I worked in an International Airport. Not in the secure area (rental car counter in baggage claim), but given that the place had sniffer dogs go through it several times per shift, I figured I was guaranteed to get busted. Plus, with my crazy hours I really didn't go anywhere besides work. My new job is behind a desk in an office, and the dress code means I could only get away with carrying a pocket pistol... which I don't have.

    Back when I carried, it was usually my Springfield RO Compact .45. I purchased it to replace my lemon of a SIG P232, and because a) it was a 1911, and b) because it's skinny enough to disappear under an untucked tee-shirt that actually fits me vs. having to be 2 sizes too big. I carried it in an Adams Holsters Texas Rig with the OWB Conversion loops. Carried it at about the 4:30 position with a 7-round Chip McCormic mag in the gun, and a pair of 8-round Wilson 47Ds with the extended basepads in a Texas dual mag pouch (again with OWB conversion loops) at about the 7:30 position.

    When I do eventually get a pocket pistol, I plan on carrying it in my right front pocket. I'll use a pocket holster of course, but again I haven't decided which one. Nor have I figured out how I'll carry spare ammo without anyone noticing.

    I either carry a Smith and Wesson model 686+ with a 2.5 inch barrel and a 5* speed loader in my right front pocket. I keep the gun stoked with 158 gr .38 spcl +p LSWC hollow points at 1000 fps, other wise known as the "FBI load".

    If I'm not carrying that, then it's my Sig P228 with no spare magazines. I carry both guns iwb in a Luke Adams Texas rig.

    While the two above may take turns being my primary, my BUG never changes. I carry a Smith and Wesson model 642 air weight hammerless snub in a Galco ankle glove. I keep it loaded with critical duty .38 spcl rounds from Hornady, as the FBI loads sometimes have a tendency to prarie dog out of their soft crimps from the recoil in the smaller framed revolvers.

    I carry the 686 because it conceals well and I love the cartridge. I carry the Sig because it's the safest semi auto design that I know of and it is the one I shoot best. Lastly, I carry my back up because I've been driving more frequently and ankle carry is fantastic for this, it gives me the option to arm friends or family members who don't have permits, and because if I ever am forced to defend my life- the stakes are so high that I want every opportunity I can get to survive. I will avoid conflict at all costs. I will try to de-escalate the situation, talk my way out of it, or physically leave the area of I can, but if legal and justified force is required, then a back up gun is very comforting. In the same way I don't carry the exact amount of money that I need that day and the same reason I have a spare tyre in my trunk- sometimes things come up that we can't have forseen coming and when the job is to preserve the lives of those you love or your own, self defense is not the place to be cutting corners.

    My daily carry for work is a Glock 19 Gen 3 with two spare mags (46 rounds total), in a Safariland ALS holster.  Off-duty I usually carry my Glock 19 iwb in a CompTac MTAC with one spare mag in a Magholder (maker lives in my neighborhood).  I mainly carry the Glock because it is what I train and qualify with, though it is not my favorite gun.  Occasionally I carry my Sig P226 Legion in a ultra-comfortable Adams IWB I bought off WTA last year--love the holster as much as the gun, but I tend to only use it for winter carry or the right shirt to hide the size of the Sig (one extra mag for 34 rounds).  I love the improved trigger of the Legion series, and carry it because I originally trained with a P226 for work until we transitioned to an all-Glock department.

    My last daily carry was my Glock 29, in a Texas rig for a Glock 20.  I carried two 15 round G20 mags on my weak side or coat pocket for a total of 40 rounds.  On weekends and off days now I either carry my R 8 in a Biachi thumb break on strong side with two 5* speed loaders or two moon clips on my weak side for a total of 24 Remington 125 gr hollow points. Or a 1911 with McCormick 8 round mag and two more on weak side for a total of 25.

    I have not come up with a good solution for daily carry when I wear a nail belt for 50 hours a week.

    I usually carry a Kahr P9 behind my right hip.  Three different holsters, all straight drop, in a Calvary manner (Palm out draw), due to an old shoulder injury.  One a Remora IWB, another a traditional leather OWB and the third between the belt and pants kydex holster.  I used to keep a spare magazine in my pocket, but the top round kept coming out in my pocket.  Now I use a simple mag holder to avoid that.  I only currently carry 7+1 in the pistol and 8 in the extended mag (haha) for a total of 16.  The gun is light, flat, accurate and fits my hand like a glove.


    I am considering changing my daily carry to a Walther PPQ.  It has twice the capacity, I shoot it better and things seem to be changing for the worse.  I'd need a holster with retention as it is SAO with a Glock style safety.  It also won't conceal as easily, but we have open carry here in AZ.

    My preferred carry is my Kahr K9, with a spare magazine.

    Since I can't carry to work, I'm looking for a good way to store it in my vehicle - but Atlanta has had a rash of car break-ins of thieves *specifically* looking for guns (other valuables being passed over, etc.), so it'd need to be something that is both next to impossible to break into, and next to impossible to remove.

    Tall order.

    So, right now, the K9 is basically my roadtrip weapon, with the spare magazine (I need to get another one), and the rest of the box of Hornady Critical Duty in close proximity (not that I would expect to be able to reload a mag in mid fight...).

    Daily carry on duty is a Glock 17Gen4 with a Surefire weapon light, a standard 17 round magazine in a snagmag on my weak side and two magazines with the factory 2 round extensions and a S&W 940 for a total of 78 rounds of 147 grain Speer Gold Dot.

    My off duty carry is usually a Glock 19 in a Comp-Tac Minotaur or a S&W Model 640 with a S&W 340 M&P. Both of the revolvers are stoked with Speer 135 grain +P Short Barrel 38 SPL. The Glock has 124 grain Federal HST 9mm. I usually carry a spare magazine for the Glock and a speed strip for my backup or 3 speed strips and a 5* Speedloader in a split six holder.

    I have other firearms that I'm working on and haven't put through my usual round count and/ or getting a holster for carry. I've spent so much time on the Glock platform and have had the Glock 19 for a while. The 640 is carried when I need a little more concealability.

    Fantastic carry options, guys  :thumbup2.

    Hey, GaBoy45. How do you carry both your S&W Model 640 with a S&W 340 M&P? You made it sound like you carry both of them at once (similar to how I carry both my Sig and 642 at once).

    I really need to get me a 640.

    Depends really. Colder weather the 340 sits in a coat or vest pocket. Warmer weather it rides in a Galco ankle holster (which I use on duty as well) or, if I'm wearing higher top boots, it rides weak side in a Desantis pocket holster.

    Oh cool, we both use ankle holsters then!  :cool

    Kaso very graciously gave me mine. At first I was a bit concerned I wouldn't get it to work out for me, but back then I used it without the calf strap. Once I bought the calf strap, it was a night and day difference. I can easily wear the ankle glove and 642 now for over 9 hours. Hell, I've even accidentally fallen asleep with it on, if that says anything of it's comfort.

       Mainly I carry a Ruger Snubnose 2.75" security six in .357.     I was always a die-hard semi-auto fan, however I've been bitten by the revolver bug.   With some practice I am comfortable carrying 6+6+6 rather than a semi-auto.   It conceals more easily and comfortably than a semi-auto, and I have just as much confidance.

       I mainly carry a Desantis pancake holster, with a Bianchi-style 6 round individual carrier and a speedstrip carrier from Simply Rugged.   I want extra rounds I drop some spare speed strips into a pocket.

      Also "ALWAYS" carry my .380 LCP in my left front (weak side) pocket.


      I on occasion carry my 1911 or Beretta 9mm.....or also....my Ruger Redhawk .44 magnum...

    This is it. Actual sidearm, poster by me. ;)



    The CZ p-09, after having Cajun Gun Works do the fantastic Pro Package. It shoots like a dream. It's lighter and handier than most could imagine for a duty sized handgun, and in he right holsters it conceals quite easily under a over large t-shirt, even in AZ summer weather. I do carry either one spare mag or two, depending, either a High Noon Double Take leather or  Blackhoawk poly single mag pouch. Sidearm currently rids in either a High Noon Slide Guard in bison hide, or a High Noon Close Encounter hybrid IWB.
    I've carried small pistols and revolvers and medium size of both. For many reasons I've been going with more of everything, firearm and ammo - the P-09 has a 19 round flush fit magazine, and with two spares, that's a LOT of Hornaday 135gr +P Critical Duty ammo.
    I trust this pistol with my life and my family's lives, every day, and twice on any Sunday. ;)

     It, like all superheros, also has an arch villain it can't kill...:(

    I do not carry daily. I work for a defense contractor and half of the plantsite is actually USAF property. If I were "made" actually carrying at work I wouldn't just get fired I'd be prosecuted and quite possibly incarcerated. Random vehicle searches are a factor of my employment so even keeping a firearm in my vehicle isn't worth the risk.

    However, any other time I go out I am carrying and at those times I am almost always carrying my S&W 442 in a old Lobo Leather IWB rig and I always carry a reload in a speedstrip in a belt holder made for me by Luke Adams. I choose the J frame because it offers a good combination of power, portability and concealment. I am far more familiar and proficient with revolvers than with autoloaders and though I often toy with the idea of switching over to one, I always end up deciding to stay with the wheelgun.

    Daily carry is my bobtailed Kimber Pro Carry in .45 ACP, and one spare mag in a Gerber multitool pouch on the weak side.  One more spare mag in the console of the truck. I figure that if I can't get the job done with 25 rounds I probably couldn't get it done with an M4, either.

    I carry a Glock 19 gen 4. I picked it because I moved to a state where I could carry and I couldn't keep waiting for Smith and Wesson to release a mid-sized M&P. The Glock fit the bill nicely, and the "I hate the grip angle" argument has been overcome with proper training and practice. I've made the necessary modifications to make it a better fit for me. I do not carry a spare magazine on me at the moment, but I keep an extra in my backpack.
