I know you guys do great work building carry guns for the rest of us, but what do YOU carry? Details, please!

Geeze Wayne I don't mean to ignore you!

My gun has Heinie's, black, .110 front ramp, Brown single or a BCP ambi, BarSto, and BCP ignition system and a solid long Vedecki. Bald front strap on one, serrated back...changing to the WAVE all around. Micarta grips made specifically to my specs by Hogue. Mild mag bevel...changing that soon too :grin: Colt recoil system, BCP grip safety and a good melt job. I have a Springfield, doing a Nowlin and Kimber up now. All the same except for finish. I prefer chrome and blue, but black park and Black T aren't bad either. Pretty much the same guns I build everyday.

1. Full sized Colt 1911 stainless, black sulphated, Wilson barrel, checkered 45 degree 20 LPI, magwell opened up, flat MSH. Stock Colt thumb safety and trigger, although trigger has a solid overtravel stop (not a screw) added. Ed Brown grip safety, pre-memory pad, Navidrex thin grips, my own made-from scratch night sights. I put it together in 1988, well used but accurate and reliable.
2. Colt Officers ACP, set up pretty much identical to the above.
3. Kahr K9, sights as above, checkered, magwell added.
4. Seecamp .32, box-stock

....pretty much in order of preference as dictated by prevailing conditions.

My personal 1911's are way behind what I'm doing for other folks.... but I am very "close" to them and comfortable with them.
Edited for spelling.

I bet it is scalloped, not to mention a carry melt job. :smile:

Dick,

Nice one :grin:

Yes folks, it's sad but true that the entire state of Illinois is subject to the oversight of Chicago.

I carry an apple with night sights and a bobbed stem. Granny smiths tend to conceal a bit better :grin:

I carry a Colt Series ’80 L.W. Commander with Novak lo-mount rear and .110” wide front. It is high gripped with 30 lpi front strap checkering, arched aluminum serrated MS housing (to minimize clothing wear), Wilson beavertail, Brown single tactical thumb safety. It still has the Series ’80 parts along with a Brown Commander hammer and STI trigger. It wears a set of smooth Houge Kingwood grips with allen head grip screws. The mag well is beveled and has a radiused bevel that extends back into the MS housing. The barrel & bushing are factory Colt –w- a one piece steel guide rod. It currently has a lovely :smile: two-tone finish of bare aluminum and worn blue slide. I carry it in a Safariland 5181 paddle holster.

Like all my other personal guns, this one is not quite finished. When I can get time, it will get a Schuemann ramped bull barrel –w- a Comminoli frame saver guide rod. After the barrel is finished, I’ll install a dovetailed front sight, thinned to .110”. The edges and corners will be melted and it will get a coat of Black-T from Birdsong. After it gets back from Birdsong, I’ll send the sights out for bar-dot tritiums.

Now that I’ve put it all down on paper, I think this gun will be too pretty (not to mention expensive) to carry, maybe a bar of soap in a sock may be the way to go! :smile:

What's the stopping power of "soap on a rope"? If it's antibacterial soap, will that enhance it's one shot stop rating?

:wink:
Depends on how fast you fling it. Would you use the over the head (helicopter) spin or the sideway (plane propeller) method to achieve maximum velocity? What would be the optimum tube sock length to achieve the velocity desired? We can open a whole new can of worms on this topic.

Well, at least it is pre-ban. There should be no limit on the capacity of the sock.

Would a worn-and-not-washed sock be classified as a biological weapon of mass destruction?

Hey, Richard, if you carry that baby inside the waistband it could enhance your love life - at least until they discover what it is!

I live in California and deemed to be too untrustworthy to carry also. I used to use the soap in a sock as my weapon of choice, but after reading about Surefire flashlights one flash stop rates I swithced. I now carry two flash lights tied together with an old shoe lace, and use them just like Bruce Lee. Of course when I am going into the badlands I also bring the soap in a sock as a backup.

Before anyone asks, the flashlight have a complete reliability job, carry melt, trigger(on/off button) job, and laser sight. Did I mention it has a black-t over hard chrome finish? I spoke to Lou Allessi about leather, and he said he is working on a desing for me (at least that is what I thought he said as he was laughing).
