    Default What is your choice carry pistol?

    I recently picked up my CPL and a few pistols to carry. I researched beforehand to find exactly what i wanted. Just like motorcycles I don't believe you have to have a (Harley) S&W so I ended up with a charter arms revolver and a Taurus semi auto. I've put a few hundred rounds through both and absolutely enjoyed doing so. So back to my question, what is your favorite carry piece?

    I carry a Springfield Arms XD(s) .45 most every day. Convenient, powerful, and with the slim version, it's easy to conceal.
    My Favorite Rides:
    2016 Ultra Limited
    2010 Ultra Classic
    2003 Dyna SuperGlide
    1967 Bell UH-1 Iroquois(Huey)



    Most motorcycle problems are caused by the nut that connects the handlebars to the saddle.

    My biggest issue to overcome is my big assed belly. When you're as large as I am it's hard to find loose fitting clothes.

    I have a few but 90% of the time I also carry a Springfield xds in .45 awesome little gun. The key is the right holster more than the clothing. I like my white hate holster. I've had others but the hybrid style are my favorite such as white hat, crossbreed, etc. a good belt also goes a long way for is bigger guys.

    I picked up a few holsters, my favorite is the belly band.
    Do any of you open carry? I don't like to and I don't see many up north that do with the exception of hunting. My brother is in the Detroit area and he said quite a few people do down there.

    I rarely open carry just because it isn't as comfortable to me. I have a couple fobus holster and just don't care for how they feel. I did just get a cheap shoulder rig and do like that for under my jacket and I can wear it while on the sled too.
