    big boys handgun...........

    Then you've never encountered a large bear in a very hostile situation.

    That's why I mention compression shorts as well, those things are way better than just cotton boxers. The gel is good for any chaffing area too, not just man-parts and thighs.

    Not only the time fill but the hard left agenda all the agencies carry.

    Yikes. Your right. I got my .380 second hand for less than $250.

    Michael Bloomburg is such an idiot. Some people may have been hit by police gunfire? Why even mention it immediately? Oh hey NY how are your gun laws working out? Not a single CCW in sight, I'm sure.

    They are just so damn hard to hold on to for those of us with bigger hands and longer fingers.

    I mean yeah we trade firepower for convenience in a smaller package but I know a few gun owners and CCW holders (me included) who will opt to leave their carry weapon at home due to weight or size or whatever the situation demands. I can't carry a service length XD with light shorts and a slim tshirt. I decided a pocket gun was my only option. It's never in the way and it will never print or pop out to sy hello out in public. Like you said, a .22 in the hand (or in my case, .380) beats a howitzer at home. At the end the day, your handgun should be used to fight your way to a rifle. I won't be using any handguns in a home defense situation, that's for sure.

    Don't think I've ever seen a snake bite kit that was worth a shit. Best idea is to learn how to avoid the snakes.

    Well to me that same reasoning applies to all EDC guns. I carry a .380 because I know it will stop a threat. The .45 acp is also just overkill to me. I get it, guys want to feel like badasses carrying a condition 1 single action military weapon, but at what cost? It's heavy, it only holds 8 rds at best and if you bought a gun made in the USA then you paid ALOT. I realize that it's personal preference and you old timers are gonna jump in my shit over it but I think 70% of guns mentioned for EDC are just plain overkill. I sold my Kimber 2 years ago because it was a range queen, I tried carrying it once and it was just plain uncomfortable. But I'm just saying..

    I don't carry hand loads on the day to day either for the same reason. But in a survival scenario my side arm is an XD40 and my ammo stash is mostly hand loads so that was my coming in position. But honestly any DA could do that to any reloader even if they killed someone with factory loads. Once they see you have a hundred lbs of powder and thousands upon thousands of brass and bullets saved up, they will crucify you. Bullet deformation of any JHP will make it unrecognizable and they will say you were using man killing rounds of your own design no matter what. Prove them wrong. Which is interesting because my main carry weapon these days is DB380 for my pocket (loaded with Rem UMC FMJ) and I'd like to see them try to nail me for working up hot loads with FMJ for a .380, haha.

    More Guns for your Buck.

    I've bought many guns from Buds and the whole process is excellent. Definitely recommend.
