You ever try pocket carry? Works great with my LCP II.I used to. New problem though while I try to reassess things.
I have a Ruby with leather seats. And the butt of the grip of my G43 pushes against the seat while I'm driving. Enough to put a substantial indentation in the leather. Over a short time of everyday carry, I'm betting my seat will be ruined and need to be reupholstered.
I've carried appendix, but I DESPISE that position for a multitude of obvious and less obvious reasons.
Anyone else have this problem? Does the seat hold up to 3 o'clock carry position?
It seems that gun laws varie among States regarding keeping one in your home versus your vehicle.
But what if you're temporary homeless: and it happens to all too many I'm afraid to say.
And as a result you live out of your car for a while. Isn't that "your home?" Shouldn't you be able to carry in there because it's your home?
Surely public parking and less security of a vehicle over a house might be all the more justification for wanting to have protection.
Bias: not particular pro guns...I would like to see high capacity weapons and the mentally ill who own them part ways, and the latter get counseling. But--I do respect gun ownership for protection against this very element, along with common thieves, and I do respect the people here who responsibly (i.e. and I suspect all do) like guns and/or simply don't want someone else telling them they have to give them up.
Ted, thank you for your public service; you should write a book!After working almost 30 years in prisons, and being in over a 1000 documented physical altercations while at work, and knowing what people will do to other people first hand. I always carry. I have an unrestricted CCW. I have had prisoners that have tried to hire hitmen to kill me in the streets back when I worked in Super-Max.
Yet I don't fear for my life, I just understand and have seen first hand many times what people with do to others. I also carry because I would hate to be somewhere and have something happen and not have the tools to stop it. I am a firm believer in Sheep Dog mentality backed up by being well trained.
For when you are pantless, check out Thunderwear. I actually own one!Yep. If I’ve got pants on, I have a gun. Either Airweight S&W 38 in pocket or G43 in appendix IWB.
And one reload for either.
I usually carry a rifle in the Jeep as well. 5.56 or 6.8 AR.
