I guess if I thought everyone else was carrying a gun I would feel the need to carry one, but since people don't here in general I don't feel the need. Our police don't even carry guns apart from specialist armed units. Knife crime is a big thing though so it's not like we don't have violent crime.
    this just blows my mind. I mean, regular police visits when you're not even breaking a law? but, in the U.S we have the 4th amendment, no illegal search and seizure, cops generally need a warrant to enter and search the property.

But being as I sold firearms for a living, I got an extensive amount of hands on with many models. I fondled (yes, I totally went there) anything I could get my hands on, and shot everything that felt comfortable in my hands. I loved the Sig P238, but wasnt fond of the .380 caliber, so when the 9mm version came out, I jumped on it.

    I should mention though, DH and I currently own about 48 firearms, only 10 of which are handguns. I have trained with each one extensively, with a big focus on what we carry. Im a firm believer of practice practice practice, not just shooting down range, but drawing from the holster, from different angles...everything I can think of.

    Oh, and holster wise, check out Crossbreed (sorry if that has been mentioned, Ive been on the road all day, tired, so just skimmed). They are pricey, but awesome.


    Yeah I was thinking about taking some regular training courses on handling and shooting but in regards to exactly what you said, for actual use not just down range. They've got some pretty cool stuff and trainings at the range I'm getting my concealed training from. Check it out and tell me what you think:

    Nexusshooting.com

    Or if that's the wrong website just look up Nexus Shooting Davie, FL

    I also have always wanted to become really good at it, sharp shooter material if you will lol. Do competitions and stuff. But I think I need to start with the basics before thinking about that.

    DB owns quite a few firearms as well including his father who's got a whole volt full! Lol I couldn't count them.

    I'll check out Crossbreed. I saw Can Can Concealment also.

    I think they purpose is to ensure that people are storing them correctly and safely and to make sure people don't have any illegal firearms. Cops needs warrants to search and enter properties here too, but I honestly don't know what the rules are regarding gun ownership. It's not something I know much about. I know when they brought it in a lot of people here got up in arms about it though. If you're a responsible gun owner and are abiding by the law it shouldn't be a big deal though, in my opinion. Just like the police stopping you in your car and asking to see your license and checking you have insurance/an up to date MOT.

    well, I mean, they can ask for your license but they can't search your car to make sure you're not violating a law without probable cause. At least here. If a cop asks to search my car I can say no. If a cop showed up to ask about my fire arms I'd say "yep I'm following the law, bye" I'm not anti-cop or anything. I guess it's just a cultural thing!

    These are the two I'm leaning towards. And omg I absolutely love the Trijicon Red Dot. The bells and whistles on the pistol below are my favorite. Does anyone know if the Trijicon Red Dot is accessible for all pistols or just the the glock.



    I also love the suggested Sig P938



    But I havn't seen it with bells and whistles yet. I'd really like to get the red dot though.

    Any opinions between these two firearms as far as grip, recoil, and accuracy (and anything else you can think of), and also does anyone know any other companies that have the red dot add on for less that 600$ lol thats quite expensive! I could get a whole other firearm with that lol

    I carry a Ruger LC9s pro in a custom Kydex holster I purchased from a local maker, it's pretty awesome. I shopped around and tried out a bunch before purchasing and it just felt the most comfortable to me. I also carry in a belly band depending on what activities im am doing that day. It's better if I'm moving around a lot or knowing I'm going to be bending/stooping. At my last job I primarily wore it in the belly band because I had to bend over and kneel a lot.

    This thread is about a year old.
    But talking about girls with guns never gets old, does it?
