When it comes to buying guns and concealing them from the little lady, remember, asking forgiveness is always easier than asking permission. But in extreme cases, I know a guy who owns several guns. But they stay at his neighbor's home, who the wife believes they belong to. Although he usually has one at home, that his gracious neighbor lets him "borrow".

I 2 am going to take my CCW class this month. My big question was also what to carry. I talked to a lot of my friends who carry. They all carry something different. .380 to .45 and Ruger to sig. I did a lot of research as I had never owned a gun before. I ended up getting a KAHR CW45 and I absolutely love it. It is definitely a personal preference.

Okay so my next question is how many of you carry one in the chamber when you carry? Im hearing alot of mixed opinions on this. I think carrying a gun that is not immediately usable is as useful as carrying a stick. So how many of you carry one in the chamber?

I carry a Glock 21 (45 ACP) on duty, only because that is what is issues to me by my department.....

Off duty, i carry a G26 and love it, i load it with speer gold dot 124 +p, i prefer the 9mm IMHO

Same here I have carried 45 on duty but my personal carry is the g26. I'm considering the 27 so I can alternate

For sure ask forgiveness, not permission, for something like this lol. One of my latest tactics is that I've stopped complaining when my wife wants to buy shoes. She's pretty good with money so I know she won't go overboard, but somehow she never has "enough" shoes. I just let her do her thing without me complaining, and I always bring that point up if she complains about the toys I buy. Lol
