My latest concealed carry load-out.

Like many of you, I am an un-apologist when it comes to new toys. The new thing is prettier, brighter, faster, cheaper and Chuck Yeager was wearing the identical rig in "Guns n' Ammo"! How could I go wrong?

Well, also like many of you I found that "the good stuff" is heavier, and try as I might, I am not ambidextrous. In fact, I sometimes have trouble being uni-dextrous.

My latest problem is that the "lighter" firearm I thought would fix the problem, was just an 'Airweight' for advertising purposes only. Even as a .38 SPL only, it's quite a hefty little package.

And for knives, I refuse to carry a cheapo plastic letter opener! If I am going to open up a drunken attacker, he might not understand the words, "Questo e' un coltello molto affilato!" no matter how loud I yell them at him!

Besides, I am certainly enamored by these 112s.

Good gunbelts are invaluable. But a heavy gun is still a heavy gun.

Well, I'm wearing flannel shirts already, and I prefer to secure my EDC pistol in a thumb-snap, right kidney holster.

Obviously, I have never needed a CCW item for going shopping, but there's always a first time. I want the handgun to fall to my hand like a familiar pasta fork. Of course, if I'm within arm's reach my EDC knife will be the quicker, and deadlier defensive tool.

In the end, it's too bad we have to think this way just to go out and buy groceries.

I use a crossbreed founder series belt and wow what a difference. I carry either my ultra cdp 1911 or my sig p365 in a kusiak holster. I really dont believe a went so long without a gun belt.

I have been wearing stiff wide belts since I was a teenager. I figured (as a stupid kid) is that you bought belts to match the loops.

Since my only pants are now jeans (all my suits and dress pants have been given away) it's easier to mate pants and a belt, since I only have the two...

I agree, for many years I just used whatever belts I had hanging in the closet. I did notice they wore out and the holes stretched out over time. I decided to just try a gun belt, and was shocked at the difference it made. Plus I don't think I will ever live long enough to wear this belt out.

Since you lads are talking about belts, check these out. Great gun belts, look awesome, and they have a ratcheting system. I thought it was a gimmick that would wear out. The belt I'm wearing is nearly two years old. It still works fine, but it's looking shabby. It's time for a new one, and to relegate this one to my yardwork wardrobe. One you can ratchet your belt in quarter inch increments, traditionally spaced holes will become disappointing.
