How to carry...

Post by kennymon » March 8th, 2008, 3:54 pm

:-X So I bought a sweet one. Ran a box of wolf ammo through her and found a soft holster my Wifie is modifying for in the belt carry. Now, what's the word on carry proceedure: 6+1 safety on, off, 6 and empty chamber, or what???

Whatever floats your boat... :) All of the above work with this little pistol. Many carry 6+1 in conditon 1 and others like condition 2 and let the heavier than normal DA trigger pull act as "sort of" a saftey. I'm usually 6+1 with the trigger down and no saftey...this is comfortable to me. Some have had trouble cycling 6+1 and have to go 5+1...so carry a spare mag too.

Just my 2 cents...enjoy!

I carry mine in a fanny pack most times. Safety off, 6+1

Fanny pack with a full mag and one in the chamber, safety off and an extra mag in the mag holder. Sadly it may get replaced by my Cobra Patriot 45.

Count me in with the consensus so far--6+1, safety off, but I carry "Mexican"...

Himmel, what the H E double Hockey sticks is Mexican carry? I've heard the statement quite often and don't understand what it means. I know that no racial slur is intended, but I just don't get it.

I pocket carry or use an IWB holster. Either way, 6+1, safety off.
There are a few previous threads on this topic.

Thanks, BD for the response to GR's question-- I don't get on here as often as i'd like. The phrase, BTW, is not intended as any kind of slur, it refers to an era in Mexican history when the rulers--guess what??-- outlawed gun carry. The story goes that the Mexicans by and large kept carrying, but without the tell-tale holsters, so when the federales or Rurales appeared, they could more easily conceal the gun. If that version is true, it probably refers to the Porfirio Diaz dictatorship, late 1800s to 1910.

Dano, thanks for the education, that one had bothered me for some time, not because thought it was meant as a slur, I just did not get it.
Thanks again,
G.R. :)

lemme clarify ^^^^ with ebonics

Gangstas carry without holsters in the waistband.


Gangsters carry in guitar/violin cases or sometimes boxes of flowers.
