Hand Gun Shooters ?

Post by SFBigDog »

I have always enjoyed shooting hand guns at the range or where ever, but have gotten away from it for some time .... However, the combination of the increased shootings in the Chattanooga area combined with snakes trying to get into my fishing boat several times this summer, has caused me to get interested in it again ..... to the point where I have completed all the requirements .... and have applied for and gotten my Hand Gun Carry Permit. So now I am back at the shooting range at least once a week .... very relaxing and something I enjoy.

Same here! I like shooting all guns though. I took the wife to the Gun club a few years back and we shot some clays. She was pretty good too. Sore shoulder the next day, but what are you going to do.

She is in the process of getting her License to Carry permit too. We are going to be the gun toting, heat packing family. :LOL2:

Good morning Jim...
Same here ... I taught my wife to shoot and she went through the classes with me .... and I was really proud of how she did .... she has her permit as well .... but won't carry a gun as she says I'm with her 99% of the time .... so she will let me shoot the bad guys LOL ! But she goes to the range with me quite often as well.

I usually carry a Glock 9MM .... or a Smith & Wesson 357 Mag with 4 in barrel. But my pride and joy .... is a Smith & Wesson Model 29 44 Magnum.

I carry a Glock 27 (sub-compact .40)... I keep it in the truck most times, because I carry it on the boat with me. Where I night fish, I'm usually the only one out there, and you never know who may be lurking around... especially the places with no security lights and long walks back to the truck

I like the Glock 27. I carry one when I'm off and when fishing. They work well in an ankle holster while in the boat. The seat height is just right to access the holster. Plus the Glock is not high maint nor is it super expensive. They are also pretty damn tuff. I have seen them go flying off vehicles at highway speed and only sustain minor cosmetic damage.
3/4 of the Earth's surface is water and 1/4 is land. Clearly god wants me to fish, not mow the lawn.

I carry mine in a paddle holster... I stand while fishing, so if I'm wearing long pants (well the one's I wear when fishing) I can't bend over and get it out.

I forget a lot of times that I have it on... the other night some guys came up and I guess they didn't think I could hear them, but I heard them say "hey, that guys wearing a gun"... I just looked at them and gave them the "I'll shoot you fool" head nod.

But nah, I try to remember to keep it hidden, and most people don't even know I've got it with me unless it shows itself when I'm moving around.

Another handgunner here too! Unfortunately that pic of the gun safe is not too far off from what my looks like...that probably has a lot to do with why I am now single! The upside is I dont think the LA Riots will come to my neighborhood anytime soon or stay long if they do...

I also CC a Colt 1911 series 70 45 ACP in a SOB holster with a couple of spare 8 rounders from Bill Wilson in my back hip pocket. Do a lot of combat shooting type drills with this one.

Got a Ruger Redhawk in 44 Mag. Sweet not so little gun thats great on feral hogs and the occasional deer lacking "situational awareness". Not the biggest or baddest but a lot of fun to shoot, thank God I reload or Id be broke!

One of my other personal favorites, is a Ruger Single Six Convertible. Cant believe this gun is still operational, as I am sure its had 35-40k in rounds through it! Scored on a lot of tree rats with this one as well as a couple of snakes trying to get in the boat on me at night! My only regret is I didnt get it in stainless steel. Without a doubt the most enjoyable gun I own!
