    Had to re-qualify at the range today. Always fun shooting with the boys, but I got to tell ya, outdoor ranges in Hawaii at noontime are nasty HOT.

    You poor thing. You have it so rough. Lol.

    We have quarterly training this week and it will probably be in the 40s

    Back to the OP.

    Depends on a lot of things, I guess.

    For me, I carry a Raven 25. It's what I choose to stake my life on. Always have, both as a civilian and as a back up, professionally. The reason is - I do not miss with it. Not on the range, in the field, in the snow and rain, not when when running. I don't know why I shoot so much better with it than any other weapon, but I always have, just seems like it's part of my hand. And was that way from day one.

    For me, I'd be nuts to carry something different.

    Where I live they just throw grenades now. Gets you to duck down and they draw pistols even if it's a dud.123
