The Old Fashioned Gentleman's Concealed Carrry Handgun

Post about everything from carrying a handkerchief to manly skills (sharpening a pocket knife, etc.) to product reviews of items that may have slipped under our radar (e.g. - Grandpa's Pine Tar soap). No threads on anything "new" unless it harkens to old-fashioned sensibilities and ideals.

Those are just dogon sexy! I have an FEG made PPK knock off. Mechanically it's the same, but it has an aluminum frame rather than steel and doesn't command quite the premium. S&W must have stopped production on their licensed copies thus creating a supply and demand issue. The demand will never go down thanks to James Bond.

Time for an admission: I have not applied for, nor do I feel a need for a concealed carry permit.
Colorado is an open carry state, and when I feel the need of a handgun, I carry it in the open in a holster. Have for many years.

My primary concern here is not of the two-legged variety but the occasional cougar who has become too comfortable around people, and I'm more concerned about my dogs than myself. We live in cougar country and a few dogs have been taken by cougars in the area.

When I'm hunting, I'll have a shotgun or a rifle in my hands, and when I'm not I'll often carry this Ruger Security Six in .357 Magnum. Old school, I guess, but a very reliable revolver with a wonderfully smooth double action and light, crisp single action trigger. Definitely an Old Gentleman's handgun:

I don't carry it, concealed or otherwise, but I own the GP100 - the direct descendant of the Security Six and it is a pleasure to shoot. Double action trigger is a bit heavy, but when target shooting typically shooting single action and it's very nice.

(OK, I guess I have been known to carry it on occasion for coyotes when out in the winter. Haven't shot one though.)

After many weeks of debating I finally got one. Remington has released a much more affordable and in my opinion, an improved version of the Rohrbaugh 380. I really think it has the classic lines of a handgun that an OFG would carry. The aluminum frame is tough to find on guns now. Though I've come to accept plastic frames, I still prefer metal. I was hoping their R51 9mm would be a success, but they :poop:ed the bed on that one. I'd be willing to bet that they'll release a 9mm version of the RM380 in the future.

In my constant search for the best I found another revolver I like. Although my S&W 442 is loaded with very potent Winchester Ranger +P's when I carry it, I wanted something with a little more oomph. 44 special was the answer. It is on par 45ACP in performance, but the rimmed case makes it a better option for a revolver. Charter did well with this one. The 2.5 inch barrel is still easy to tuck in a waistband and it gives just a bit more velocity. I'm going to swap the hammer for the bobbed option and I need to find a holster to fit it. The 44 special might also push me over the edge to reloading.

Walther PPQ 9mm in the cooler months. S&W model 642 Airweight .38 Special in the warmer months or a S&W .380 Bodyguard when I'm unable to conceal anything else.
