TTAG Reader: What I Carry and Why – Chad’s SIG P238

I made the decision to get my CCW two years ago and wanted to carry as much as possible. In retrospect it almost seems crazy I didn’t come to that conclusion sooner as a...

What I Carry and Why: Johannes Paulsen’s GLOCK 43

25
My GLOCK 43 ain't no barbecue gun, that's for sure. That's okay. Pretty wasn't something I was looking for when I bought it. I didn't want something with high sentimental value. I wanted something that I...

What I Carry and Why: Dana Loesch’s GLOCK 19, S&W .38 Airweight

43
Dana Loesch is the Ozark version of Jackie Mason. Speaking at the Bullets & Bourbon confab, the comely conservative commentator's timing was immaculate, her off-hand one-liners withering and her shtick superlative. Re: death threats and stalkers: "They're the ones with...

TTAG Reader: What I Carry and Why – Danny in Cleveland’s M&P40c

31
  It's been en vogue lately to poo-poo the .40 S&W caliber. All the tacticool operators and serious pistoleros seem to carry 9mm's and turn their noses up at those misguided and amateurish enough to...

TTAG Reader: What I Carry and Why – Jeremiah S’s CZ P-07

I grew up in California for most of my youth, and the thought of owning a gun never even crossed my mind. After graduating high school, I moved out to Oklahoma to move closer...

TTAG Reader: What I Carry and Why – Jeff the Griz’s M&P40c

I like M&P pistols. I started with a Smith & Wesson M&P40c for the wife for home defense when I first started buying handguns, and it just made sense to continue from there. I...

As someone who's fairly new to the firearms world I’ve only had an opportunity to try a few guns, but I have tried most handgun styles. I’ve tried my hand at revolvers, 1911s, and...
