You know.......I was going to ask this same question a while back, but new where it would go.

Thumbs up to the original poster for having the *alls to ask it.

Ok back on topic please.

What do you guys carry? Anyone here carry a concealed weapon? Like a Glock or a Smith and Wesson M&P? Its not a debate on the reasons but the make/type

Make another thread for other discussions. I've moved it to general chat, I don't want my customers being scared away, it's difficult enough to get them in the first place

677 shootings in Philly.....how many do you think were gang related? Of course of those shootings most likely if you were carrying a gun you would get shot.

Sorry about that!

I agree.....stay on topic or move to another thread.

Peace!

I have a XD subcompact in .40 that I like, need to find a better holster for it . I have been looking at a Sig P238 as well, seems quite nice.

I agree. Seriously, why not set up that poll? It avoids all the back-and-forth but still gives us some good information; i.e., Carry or Not?

Now it's in General Chat does that mean we can take it off topic?

Now before anyone jumps to conclusions let me state that I'm an NRA lifer. Having said that, I think this whole thread is a mistake and here is why:

The forum it's posted in is searchable by the general public.

For the guys doing onsite servicing of consumers, I doubt the public at large likes the idea of having the repair guy strapped.

For those doing SMB or Enterprise work you are most likely violating their corporate policies if going onsite while carrying.

This poll/discussion would be better on a gun related forum imho.
