9mm for pocket carry or a Ruger Sr9c w/ 10 & 17 round mags for edc...

With what's going on and the fact that I'm a white man, I'd feel more comforable carrying a long slide double stack 10 mm in a shoulder holster, 49 rounds of 200gr HC.

I have an officers size sig ultra in 45 that is my favorite carry. I feel the most comfortable with it if I was ever put in a defensive position but it carries like a boat anchor... start sweating and I'm wearing my shorts around my ankles prison style open for business etc...

Anyone here EDC a Glock 29?
The original market aim for the Glock 29 and Glock 30 was off duty police that carried the Glock 20 and Glock 21 on duty, so they could carry duty ammo and use the larger magazines.

The Glock 29 carries like a brick and the 3.78" barrel kind of defeats the 10mm velocity.

MAYBE if you wanted some 200 grain bullets, but there are lighter weight, more advanced bullets.

You can get away with using 40 S&W ammo in the Glock 29 if you have to, due to available ammo.

Maybe some heavy bullets for bear protection.

it still carries like a brick for everyday carry.

I'm not recoil sensitive, was looking for something other then a Glock 19. I suppose there's always a Smith & Wesson Shield 2.0 4" in .45acp. :mrgreen:

Well this ain't gonna be popular, but a while back I embraced the concept that a handgun is only a tool to fight your way back to your rifle. So I carry a small easily concealable .380 loaded with Cor-bons and a spare mag. In my truck it's a VERY different story, if I make it back to my truck you are FUCKED.

It's not the recoil, the concentrated weight of the Glock 29 is not something that somebody with an active life would want carry everyday.

For everyday carry I would look for something lighter weight.

I ended up with a Glock 36 in a trade.

So far I've loaded 230 grain Remington Golden Sabers in it.

For CCW the size of the gun and carrying it all the time is more important than caliber personally, but I love my lc9s pro, I can shoot it accurately and it conceals under a t-shirt easy.

My favorite when wearing the proper clothing is my Glock 30 gen 3 45 acp

I been carrying my 9mm Shield more often lately wearing shorts.

And I do have an AK pistol in my vehicle at all times, fuck the dumb shit. Too many crazies out there now.
Everyday I see my wife in the hospital, my AK pistol is tucked in my wheelchair.
I scoped the place and never seen metal detectors, so who knows the difference?

How do you like it? I'm looking at a Glock30s, which i believe is a Glock 30 Gen 3 frame & a Glock 36 slide?

Well i wasn't really looking for one, but got in a trade that included one..

It seems pretty good.

The 30s has the same slide with a larger frame grip, shorter magazine.

The 36 magazine can pinch the skin a bit at the bottom of the frame.

Just remember, if the 30s is loaded to capacity, the weight of the 45 ammo will be there too.

Of course it can be downloaded some and the last round is often super tight to load anyway.

It should still be lighter than a 1911.

230 FMJ ammo has a bunch of penetration, even at low velocity.

Remington hollow points / Golden Sabers, seem to have the smoothest and best feed of the available hollow point 45 bullets.

Both 185 grain and 230 grain bullets of several lines of Remington 45 ACP ammo.

That's just bullet shape, not quality or flash.

There may be others with better quality control or better powders.

They seem reliable though.

I go back and forth and change it up. Usually a 9mm Glock 17, or a full-size 1911 in .45acp. Sometimes I’ll carry a revolver, either a S&W Model 686+ or 60 in .357. If I am feeling particularly anti-social, I’ll open carry my 4” SS S&W Model 629 44 Mag just to piss people off.

I live here in Las Vegas so not many casinos or businesses are gun friendly any more.

I carry my Glock 43 at 4 o’clock loaded with HP. Also a 12 rd ETS in my left pocket full Of FMJ. Figure if I have to reload we aren’t in close range anymore and I’m probably trying to get back to my vehicle or take cover.

When I’m on my side of town, a little more spaced out, conservative gun friendly folks. I OWB a G19 at 3 o’clock with my shirt over it.

I wear cargo shorts/pants daily so I usually just pocket carry an extra mag.

Varies .... lately 9x19mm Taurus G3C or Glock 26 in a Remora or Nemesis pocket holster, or a Glock 19 in a MTAC Minotaur IWB holster, but sometimes 9x18mm EG Makarov or FEG SMC-918 in a Nemesis. Then again my "church gun" is 9x17mm (.380) a LCP in my suit vest pocket. In my backyard sometimes a .500 S&W in a Ross holster depending how far out into the brush I go since we get the occasional nuisance bears.

Picked up a riding holster for my charter 44sp 2.5", its easier to carry than the g30. 5 shot w 2 speed loaders, should suffice.

AK under folder with short barrel in 7.62.
It fits wonderfully beneath my trench coat, and feels good against my naked skin.

I can flash people and feel safe at the same time.

Win win
I miss my 20 inch spinners
