One of my CCW
I'm a 1911 guy and this is what I'm currently carrying. Les Baer Thunder Ranch Special in a Milt Sparks Axiom.
I've been sort of looking for a Sig MK25 at a good price for a long time. I already have a plain Jane 226 & a Legion 226 SAO, so it's not something that I HAD to have, so it wasn't a big deal. Then last month a guy on a local firearms forum put this new, unused, never even loaded one on sale for a really good price. I contacted him & naturally offered him $100 less than the perfectly reasonable asking price, and to my surprise, he accepted. So...I got it for $800 & it's been my EDC ever since.
I'm qualified to carry a G17 and G26 under LEOSA.
That's a nice setup you got there!
One of these. Both have Scandium Aluminum frames and Titanium cylinders. The laser grips have thumb web cushions.
I know that warning on the barrel wouldn't exist without a reason for being there, but I've never seen a .357 Magnum round that has a bullet weighing less than 120 gr.
They make 115gr JHP ammo in .357 Mag.
@Charlie_K If I recall correctly. It’s because the smaller bullets cause flame cutting on the top strap of the aluminum .357 j frames.
Anyone else stepping up their CCW in this panic stupidity ? I normally just carry a Glock G42 out and about. I have been packing a G29 or G20 the last few days
I frequently carry Winchester 110 grain lead nosed semi jacketed how points in my Sp101 or stainless S&W model 66 with a 6 inch barrel.
It'll do the trick. Fast, explosive expansions, the nose fragments and the core penetrates.
It depends on what I'm wearing. If I have a heavier winter jacket I carry a 3-inch Kimber .45 ACP 1911.
In the warmer parts of the year I lug around a SIG P238--and it's lighter to carry!
The reason I heard for the light bullet restriction was the chance of bullet inertia pull out. The super light revolver recoils so heavily that the bullets in the unfired rounds in the cylinder pull forward under recoil and may jam cylinder rotation.
The reason I heard is the titanium cylinder is susceptible to flame cutting/erosion from the lighter bullets traveling at higher speeds.
Not in my case, but I've been carrying a Glock 26 for three years now. I stepped mine up long before things got crazy.
