    For you Newbies, this is what they look like.
    A 380 is basically a 9mm with a lesser load and the Walther PPK's are nice--very nice up close and personal weapon, I agree!

    re: What Is your Carry Weapon

    Ive had a look through this thread and i have to admit there are some impressive looking side arms here. I am also amazed at the amount bhxhhcz has and that he uses on 'rotation'...

    Im in the UK where firearms of any kind is illegal, i have mixed views about them, but also lots of questions, but hey ho...

    So do some of you carry a weapon on you at all times routinely ? Or is that not legal over there? Or are your firearms for home use and home protection?

    In the UK firearm crime is or would appear to be on the increase and our Police Officers within specialist units carry them when on duty only and always under controlled procedures. My understanding (although somewhat limited) is that Police Officers in the US carry firearms all the time.

    Im not sure if i would like to see the legalisation of firearms over here for personal use, but i have mixed views on what you define as persoanl protections, as well as what you could do within the law for protection.

    Over here the Laws pretty much an ass, if you try to protect yourself and home and assault or injure someone breaking into your property, you get charged by British Police for taking the law into your own hands or for using 'excessive' force.. In recent years a farmer was disturbed in the night by two intruders and he gave chase shooting one with his shotgun (farming weapon and only once circumstance thats legal). The intruder was killed and the second injured, he was subsequently arrested and charged with manslaughter that was later dropped by the court of appeal after serving several years, by which time his life and his business was ruined. This caused an outcry of public sympathy for which i am in agreement. Under certain conditions the use of a firearm should be permitted. However the law at the time and presently saw it differently.

    Anyway... I just wanted to stop by, have a look at your guns with jealousy...

    I especially like the PPK it looks really nice and compact.

    For me, it's a hobby. I collect firearms to shoot for both recreation, and competition. It's something I enjoy doing, and it's a lot of fun. Expensive, but fun.

    I do have a concealed carry license, and I do carry a firearm with me daily, at all times. The world is a crazy place, and there are lots of nut jobs in it. I try to make sure that I'm able to protect my family, myself, and anyone else who is around me, should one of those crazies decide to go off the deep end.

    It's better to have and not need, then to need and not have.

    You can't go wrong with the Walther. I carry a PPK stainless, but an older one from Interarms. I checked out the ones made by S&W and have a low opinion of them. I used to load it with Hydra-Shoks but now use Hornady Critical Defense and Buffalo Bore in the back up mags.

    The 2nd Amendment of our Constitution guarantees our right to bear arms but in certain "liberal" states like New York and California, that right takes a beating by state and county ordinances, though someone with deeper pockets than I can probably challenge those as was recently done in Chicago.
    I grew up in Brooklyn N.Y. and for 20 years knew only one person who owned a gun, my uncle who was with NYPD. Even though our neighborhood grew rough when I was a teenager, and we were involved in more than a few "gang wars", I don't remember anyone ever bringing a gun though there were plenty of lesser weapons.
    In my thirties, I moved to Arizona and the first thing I did was trade in my N.Y. drivers license for an Az one. The next thing I did was go to a sporting goods store and asked the salesman to show me some .44 magnums [I had to make up for lost time]. I walked out of the store with a S&W model 29 with 6" barrel. I thought I died and went to heaven. In the next 27 years I've owned and shot hundreds of firearms but as I had to return to N.Y. temporarily, most of what I own is with friends back in Az awaiting my return.
    The liberals will tell you that restricting firearms ownership will reduce crime but it is a bunch of BS. If you took a map of the U.S. and shaded in the areas with high crime rates, then took a map of the U.S. and shaded in the areas that restrict firearms, then overlapped both maps, you would find the shaded areas were identical.

    On this side of the pond we have a saying: I would rather be tried by 12 than carried by 6.

    If I'm not mistaken, the only state that doesn't require a license to carry a concealed weapon (or in some cases, openly carry your gun) is Vermont. Everywhere else there's a level of background checks and basic proficiency training/proving that everyone goes through in order to qualify to carry outside of the home/property. Some places - those lovely liberal enclaves - make you register and obtain a permit for your firearm so that you can have permission to own YOUR gun on YOUR property - in short, to invoke a guaranteed Constitutional right you already have

    I obtained my concealed handgun license about a year ago, and have carried virtually every day. Back in February a guy almost attacked me with a metal pipe over his hitting my car in a parking lot. Fortunately I didn't have to shoot him, but I'm sure having a gun pointed at his chest made him change his plans. I am 100% certain it would have gone badly for me had I not been armed.

    It's not something I plan on using, but it's a very good safety measure - as I learned. You can't depend on the rationality of people you've never even met, and being without a means of defense is doing exactly that. The overwhelming majority of my friends own firearms, and are all very decent, law-abiding individuals. There truly is a mindset of responsibility that seems to follow most people who own guns.

    Actually Arizona recently did away with the need for a special permit for CCW so I think they are just like Vermont.

    Alaska also has no requirements to carry or conceal. They will provide you with a permit if you request it or wish to move. But, they do not require one within the state as a whole.

    In Virginia you may carry your weapon out in the open. Yep, strap it right on your side & go about your business. If you want to hide it under your jacket or put it in the glovebox of your car, you need a cc permit. Go figure.

    Utah allows open carry or with a short course and background check you can get a permit for concealed carry. There has been talk of dropping the permit requirement for concealed carry. Funny thing dropping the permit is opposed by many of the local gun rights groups. They like Utahs concealed firearms permit because Utah has a reciprocal agreement with many states. If you have the Utah permit you can carry concealed in a bunch of states.

    One day I will be able to post in this thread... However, I will likely have to move out of Maryland first.
