  • What is the best gun to carry concealed when off dut

    I'm just looking for what the general thought out there is or what others carry

  • #2
    I would carry a smaller version of your duty gun. An example is on duty I carry a G22. Off duty I would ideally carry a G23 or G27. It keeps you shooting a weapon that has the same telemetry as the your duty gun so your reflex won't have to adjust if the SHTF.

    I'm between guns now (sold some) so if comfort is an issue I'll carry my Keltec P11. Usually I'll just carry my duty pistol.

    What ever one you carry you need to train with it just like your duty gun. At a minimum you want a gun that operates on the same type platform. You don't want to carry a Glock on duty and a 1911 off duty as an example. They are completely different firing/safety systems and at some point your trained reflex will kick in.

        Leesrt that is kinda of how I was leaning towards. I carry a duty G22 and thought I might should stay with a smaller gun yet a .40 so everything is the same.

          Thats a broad question....lol.

          Carry what you're comfortable with, and something you dont have to 'relearn' to use and that's second nature.

            Asking what type of gun is best, is like asking what kind of car to get, there is good and bad with everything. Might want to drop on down to the firearms section, and look around, there are many good posts that cover just about everything from caliber, to holsters to ammo, just about anything you would want to know about firearms.
            It could be that the purpose of your life is only to serve as a warning to others.

              The best gun to carry off duty is the one that you are comfortable using. Make it one that you are familar with and can use quickly in a high stress situation.

                If thats the case try the G23. It, along with the G30, are my favorite mid size Glocks. The shoot very balanced and you can use your duty mags in a pinch.

                              Something you can conceal, something that is approved by your department (if they have requirements), something similar to your duty weapon, and something you can shoot accurately.

                              After you find that pistol, practice, practice, practice, practice and practice somemore...
