Here's a question. Is a .44 magnum hard to stick in your pocket? Could it accidently go off?

An MP5k on a short sling under your coat. That will bring some serious firepower to the table.

There's more to concealed carry than just choosing the right weapon. The right to carry is very important, but that right is not guaranteed in every nation or even in every jurisdiction in the United States, where we have the Second Amendment to our Constitution. We have some savvy gun people on this forum and I would like to invite you all to join in the discussion of gun rights on the Social Issues forum:

I do my best to encourage intelligent debate on this forum and I'm sure those who post here could add a lot of insight to this issue.

I carry a Glock 35 which is a long slide auto load. I use a belt slide holster in a strong hand, when driving in a cross draw holster.

This is a serious discussion about firearms carry and personal protection. Your previous post precludes any response to your question.

May your next post learn from your last.

I am unaware of any .44 magnum that can be effectively concealed in a pocket. A properly maintained .44 magnum is no more likely to discharge "accidentally" than any other revolver.

Some typical .44 magnum double action revolvers.

Thanks for patrolling this thread! It is nice to see some people actually care about the integrity of this thread.


I would like to thank everyone so far for his or her input; I greatly appreciate everyone’s thoughts. Everyone that has actual daily experience in concealed carry I would like to hear from.

Here are my thoughts, I am 5 11 and weigh around 185. Always wear a sport coat or suit coat. I have been shooting since I was 4yrs old, had extended experience with the following types of weapons. .22 pistols and rifles, 300 win mags, 308's, schutsen target rifles, very large caliber double rifles such as 400 nitro express Holland and Holland, Holland and Holland paradox, .50 cal bolt Barrett, Mac 10, m16, ar's, a number of different AUG's a number of .44 pistols allot of .40 pistols. I have never carried a gun before so this is something new to me. I am fully confident of my abilities just concerned about comfort, concealing it and the logistics.

Thanks to the ATS community

The more I look at this piece, the more convinced I am that it could be used as a concealed carry weapon, for those so inclined. Not in a pocket maybe, but a fanny pack, for sure.

Actually, I didn't know that this revolver was in the Ruger inventory. It's twice as heavy as the Taurus, but with a 2.5 inch barrel, the more hardy among us might feel comfortable with this concealed on his person.

Also, available in .454 Casull/.45 Colt and .480 Ruger.

It wouldn't be for me, mind you, but for the Schwarzenegger types, maybe.

I'm under the impression that Israelis are a pretty well-armed group, even compared to the US.

lakewood:

Have you ever checked out the IDPA or IPSC? I'd bet that there is a chapter of one or the other near you.

If you're going to start packing, and you're serious about it, it's a world of fun and pretty decent training. A great addition to range time. Not knowing where you are in Texas, I don't know what might be around, but both sites have a "what's near me" lookup.

One of my friends once said, if you ran a mile or two, did a couple of poppers and had your IRS agent chase you into the course with a summons, an IDPA course could be almost like the real thing.

- edit -

Here are a couple of links, in the US the IPSC is called the USPSA

there are so many guns here (in the US) it would make your head swim. i have seen people with more firepower than anyone should ever have and it was all legal. let alone the fact anyone can get a gun on the streets that wants one.

What do concealed and carry mean? Like Roper, I had a glock 35 but I wouldn't call it conceal or carry. Still, I guess any gun can be held in a fanny pack. But for real usefulness I'll take a model 27 sub-compact .40 for concealment. Glocks rule.

Anybody ever seen a "Downsizer"? I've never shot one but I read a review that said it was pretty accurate. Comes in .45 .357 and .38. Only one shot but could be useful in close quarters.



[For some reason the member upload page is not working for me, but you can see a downsizer at the link above.]

Firstly, who says what level of firepower someone should have, secondly, anyone can get a gun ILLEGALY who wants one, but not legally.

Since only the law abiding obey the law, when you pass gun laws you disarm only the law abiding, felons always have guns. The UK found that out the hard way as they now have runaway levels of gun crime and yet centerfire handguns are now banned - go figure huh.

The country with the highest level of firearms ownership is Switzerland, and they also have one of the lowest levels of gun crime - counter intuitive isn't it? - no it isn't.

Lakesiderealtor - love your H&H info - classy posts.

The ultimate Concealed carry gun?



Is this it?

Oops, forgot you said it had to be easily available on the open market. Sorry.

This is my idea of an 'ultimate concealed carry gun'. Might as well make a sleeve gun, the question is kinda erronious.

I'm a big fan of the Bersa Thunder Ultra Compact .45. Great handgun. Reliable, safe, and it makes enough noise when fired to send any perp running.

Grady im a big fan of taurus myself. Although i have a gp 161 and an anaconda, my taurus 454 casull is my favorite. I own 2 taurus autos also but my preference for conceal and carry is this one.

357 hammerless

Im a big fan of revolvers as u can see. No jams, no stovepipes, reliable to the last shot.

Any caliber can kill folks. its all a personal preference. If you find you have to make the decision to take a human life, and i sincerly hope you never do, please be proficient in your guns. Visit the range often and know them well. Shoot them in different situations also, ie... off hand, laying down front and back. A perfect, prominent hand shot may not always be available to you. If you want to conceal and carry, do it legally. Take the classes, get your CCW and be a responsible shooter.

Just my 2 cents in the matter.

PS, that model 444 ultralite is a sweet gun, i hadnt seen that one. thanx for posting that link Grady. Dammit its not on the California approved handgun list...argh typical. the 686 was there one week, gone the next when i went to purchase it. I hate Cali's laws.
