Default Permitless carry in 2 weeks

I currently carry a 9mm shield, it's pretty comfortable and compact. With permitless carry starting in 2 weeks I'm thinking of picking up something with more capacity, leaning toward the Glock G45. What are you carrying?

Colt 1911 combat commander 45acp.

Grew up shooting 1911's so I have stuck with them. Love glocks and other pistols but shoot better and feel more comfortable with the 1911 in a 45 package so I have stuck with that.

I would never own one of those mean gun things. But if I did, it would be a G23 with a Holosun 507C in an OWB holster. I'd still keep it concealed too, if I ever got one.

Same thing Iíve been carrying for a few years, Glock 29 10+1 with and extra mag. It should suffice.

Guys I’m really not up to speed on the new carry laws coming our way. But am I right in assuming that I can carry my pistol in my truck console without a cc permit?

Of course. Thatís been legal for a couple of years at least.

Just make sure itís concealed in the vehicle.

My EDC is a Sig P220 (ready to rumble with one in the pipe),
Backup is a HK USP 45...
I carry a 45 because they don't make a 46...



But sir, why is there 8 holes in the perp? Because I don't have a 8 round magazine... (remember, I have one in the pipe too )

My daily is the sig 365xl. It's accurate. Comfortable, and large enough to handle business.

My wife just got to pick through the safe, decided she didn't like any of the small stuff we own, so we went out and she picked the new shield+. Compact guns have come such a long way in the last 5 years, we now have great options on the market.

I carry a Shield also but just bought a Shield Plus, only I had to send it back to S&W because the Crimson Trace red dot sight would not mount flush on the slide. I really like the gun, but the CT red dot looks like it came out of a Cracker Jacks box. I ain’t too sure about it. I did not have the opportunity to see and hold the sight before I bought the package. Factory has had it for three weeks now………..

With running shorts, a G42 or G43x with IWB holsters.
With any shorts or pants requiring a belt it’s usually my FN57 two tone Black over FDE with IWB holster. 20 in the mag and 1 in the pipe!

Sig 938 for hiding. Ruger security 9 or a 5" 1911 for just under a shirt. Permit has nothing to do with it.

I'm currently shopping for an Abrams tank to be my new EDC. According to TBH, come Sept. 1 the streets are going to be rivers of blood, felons will be able to legally own unregistered M240s, and PDs will be taken over by warlords.

I want to make sure i'm covered when going to pick up my curbside order from HEB.

Make sure you get the add on ceramic plates to stop the rpgs, and maybe a cry closet to distract the snowflakes.

Yep, if you like the Shield, why not stay with it? I went from the Shield to the Shield Plus and for the same size gun with the same holsters, I now carry 14 rounds.

It’s good to have different guns for different clothing occasions. A LCP may be the ticket for some type of shorts that you wear. A g43 would be good for others. I also have a G45 and love it. Carry what you feel comfortable with and proficient with.

Any reason is a good reason to buy a new gun though LOL. This tiny advancement of freedom is good enough reason though.
