It's a real looker, but......

.....it is illogical and makes no sense to EDC a pretty gun. (unless you happen to be at a family barbecue)

1. If it's concealed no one else is going to appreciate its good looks anyway. ( well at least YOU know it's cute.)

b. If you have to pull it out while being assaulted or robbed the perpetrator might not take that cute little peashooter seriously and then you will HAVE to shoot him. ( I had to shoot him officer; he laughed at my gun.)

3. After you've taken down the perp and the police show up they are going to order you to drop the weapon on the concrete you're standing on. (Officer, can we do this over on that grassy lawn?)

D. Then his partner is who is holding a gun on you also tells you to "DROP IT and kick it away, DO IT NOW!!". (Officer, do you happen to know how much I paid for this gun? Can't I just set it down easy on my hanky and walk away from it?)

Last. It's going to be thrown into a large plastic container with many other guns the police have confiscated and locked up in a dark, damp and dirty storage room in the basement of the Police Officer Station.
(are you guys going to clean it and re-oil it before you store it for me?)

I don't always carry a gun; but when I do, it's butt ugly and scary looking. CARRY ON

And that is why I carry my $650 Stainless Pro TLE rather than my $1,300 Stainless Pro Raptor. Same size, same caliber, both shoot perfectly. Nope, not dropping the Raptor on the concrete if I can help it.

Dammit! Don't have my glasses on and thought it said hooker! Almost stubbed my toe getting to this thread just to be let down!


All kidding aside, but I love knowing I have a perty gal in my holster. Nobody needs to know.

I was a little worried when I first posted this that someone might really be offended. But you guys get it; it's all just for fun. Carry-on

Who would be offended? You didn't say solo and we all know you didn't mean a solo because in your scenarios the gun actually fired
Now Chatty won't have to stop by and say it for us lol
And yes I am just having fun too. Cheers

That never crossed my mind....what did cross my mind is that since the Kimber will obviously be a better and nicer looking gun than the perp will have, he will want it and try to take it from me! Ain't going to happen!

Thumbs up

Unless one is at the range when I'm practicing, the only time someone would see whether my gun(s) are ugly, or not are when they've been pulled for defense. And, I don't think their concerns will be about my firearms' looks, at that point.
