Isn't it amazing to see how the folks on this forum change their carry piece to their attire?

Pretty much goes to show you that one piece is not for every situation.

I carry so that it can be seen, by those that know what to look for.
I like the nod from those who are ready. Reassuring that we haven't lost already!

I only WISH I had one gun that would do it all. Would flush the rest of the crap in a heartbeat. As for being seen, even by those scoping out others, I normally try to avoid that, as it invites a grab. Not all folk doing the scoping are good guys, and I cannot stay point man vigilant 24/7 when even minutes can drain you.

Lofty,
I have just seen that DeSantis is now offering their "hip grips" for J frames. Available through them or Dillon Precision.

Right now I am starting to think about a "wardrobe change" for the change in seasons.

Gives me a reason to change and practice with different pieces.

Wayne, I honestly think the original Barami is a better hip grip, I guess their patent finally expired. It matches factory profile perfectly. Originally, you may recall, it was just the right panel. Much later, came the matching left panel, and the later panel may need a bit of pocket knife trimming, but still perfect factory sub to degree factory screw is juust right. They sell directly off of Amazon, not being able to advertise, a small family shop, the old man still answers the phone (or, as he puts it, still ALLOWED, and he's got stories, for sure), last I called at the old store in West Bloomfield.

This one is about as pocket as it gets. This little Micro Might chambered in 22Mag belongs to Miss Deb. It's too small for my mitts though. Our good friend Steve engraved it for her.

Well the story plays like this.... Steve delivers my newly engraved Bond Arms, and you know who just HAD to have her's done too.
He does nice work and their family is like family to us.

I have carried my NA Arms .22 mag in my shirt pocket many times, especially in the summer in my back pocket or shirt pocket. I still think that a .22 mag hollow point within 20 feet is just as deadly, or more, than a 38. At least I have something and it is made in the USA and well built.

My old faithful NAA Magnum also always somewhere handy, and has been a pal for years and years and years. Actually, as far as horsepower, what you come close to getting is a .22 rifle shooting solids.



Velocity not up to 1200fps (some as low as 1000fps) for expansion of LR, and magnum bullets normally rather tough for higher impact velocity.

So, I choose whatever ammo handy with largest meplat or nose riveting potential.

It certainly will reach the CNS from any angle, and capable of putting someone down instantly with good placement. And, also LOUD and impressive flash, which is all one really needs most times to modify human behavior more to one's own liking.

Once the shooting starts, most everybody goes the other way. We spend a lot of money training soldiers to overcome that instinct, and actually go towards the noise and shooting. It is hard.

Back to the guns, they can be quite accurate and stay that way when only jacketed magnum used. I have seen regular Long Rifle swifty lead a Mini into a smoothbore with keyholing bullets of such low velocity from sideways flight that they bounced off a 1" diameter limb at only 10ft distance and came back and whacked the shooter in the collar bone. It hurt.

Cut to the chase, the standard length bbl MiniMag is no 6" revolver about equalling a .38" Spl. It is more a pocket .22 rifle shooting standard velocity ammo. Deadly, but no spectacular havoc wreaker.
