Okay. Here's a "Fun" topic. There's 3 categories.
#2. General carrying (Probably not applicable if you can't open carry while working every day.....) That is "Always with you", either on your hip, or in the overhead gunrack.
#3. Concealed Carrying.
Okay, the question: What's the oldest, or possibly...most oddball you've carried in those categories? Note: It seems like there was already a thread about this? But I couldn't find it...
#1: M1908 8MM Mannlicher Schouner. Got a nice little 3X3 muley with it. Tried with my '43 vintage Mosin-Nagant but got the rear leaf set on 900 yards before going hunting
Handgun: 1937 S&W Brazilian .45acp. I sorta quite using it when dad-re-appropriated the holster for his Security Six. But a nice little gun. Kicked pretty hard...
Rifle: Early 90's Winchester Ranger .223. My "Carry rifles" are generally geared towards always there, prcise hits, VS "Oh neato" effect.
#3. 60's Argentine Hi-Power 9mm.
I was just wondering because today I was out doing some shooting with my 1917 Colt .45acp revolver. It hits high left (alot), but I shot a buncha rounds through it, nailed some gophers,etc. I never bothered bending the front sight (or having the barrel turned), because I got it for $200, considered it a plinking gun. Took my last three shots and fired a quickie group, got just under 3", at 25 yards.
Heck, if I get the front blade bent over a little, I figured I might just start carrying that sucker as my every day gun. It's bluing is basically gone, and was a little rusted in a spot or two...but for a USE gun, it might just be the ticket.
Well then I got to thinking perty radical......If it gets "regulated" I might hafta get some normal pressure(all I got's hardball, +P 200's and Fiocchi XTPs) .45 hollowpoint loads and try CC'ing the thing
Well the thought of using a pre-1920's revolver, long ol' 5.5" barrel and all is starting to appeal to me, and was curious what all everyone else has used
