I've watched a few YouTube videos about 3speedholster for what is known as "deep carry" holsters. Seems like a good idea. Not much use having a gun in your home if you are out somewhere else. You don't have to go hunting trouble but if you happen to encounter it, its best to be armed at the time.

I'm currently considering a Wilson Combat CQB Full Size 1911 Pistol.

Anybody around here spent around $3,000 for a pistol?

Nope. If you ever actually use a pistol in a defensive situation, consider that the police may want to hold it as evidence until you are cleared of any wrongdoing. Just my $0.02, but a $3000 pistol might be more likely to get lost while in custody than would a run of the mill $500 Glock, Sig Sauer, or Springfield.

For range time or competition, the Wilson is probably a pretty sweet piece though I admit I've never held one, let alone fired one.
If government is the answer, it must have been a very stupid question.

The weirdest I have ever felt. I arrived at the RIO at 10am and I am carrying my off-duty, concealed. I want to begin my vacation and have fun. I want to enjoy an adult beverage but with carrying a firearm i want to bench my weapon before I begin to imbibe. I approach the security desk and inform them that I am carrying off-duty and want to begin enjoying my trip to Vegas and would like to bench my weapon until I can check into my room. In the middle of the casino, security tells me I can draw my weapon, unload it, and pass it to them. I follow their instructions. That was weird in a full casino. The next day I go down to the same security booth, they pass it to me, I reload the weapon and conceal it and take it up to me my room safe. It felt weird to have a loaded and exposed pistol in a casino.

AcesandEights-

Perhaps you should pop into the Concealed Carry thread and give us an update on what you ultimately decided to do. And welcome back.


Sure, although I'm shocked you remember I ever posted in this thread!

I ended up never buying a gun. Part laziness, part I knew my wife was uncomfortable with it. She wouldn't have outright prohibited me from doing it and with enough training and appropriate caution taken she would have been fine eventually (we bought a safe partly for this purpose).

Now I live in a new state so my concealed carry license is no longer good. I may still yet pursue it here, but I'm pretty busy with work and stuff.

Have you checked or are you just assuming? Unless you live in NY, NJ, or other authoritarian regimes, there's a chance your new state has reciprocity with your state of issue.

If you're feeling lazy, hit me with former and current states and I can find it in no time

Old state - WA
New state - MA
Massachusetts is on the authoritarian side of the coin, but based on my quick google search they do issue permits. I'll let you dig up the reciprocity if you really want to, but I would want to get a new permit here eventually anyway. My WA CPL expires in May of 2017 anyway (5 years from issue).

Is no hassle. Most of this stuff is already in my biologic hard drive anyway.

MA has reciprocity with no one, so yes, you'll be getting reissued. It's $100 for 6 years, assuming residency.

Like NY, you'll likely need to communicate reason for a concealed carry (as opposed to a license to possess). Things such as previous threats, line of work, or frequency of carrying large amounts of cash are the go-to's. I used my lengthy response time from 5-0 as well as frequent predator encounters to get mine, and had no issue.

You'll need to do this, otherwise your weapon can only be carried unloaded and for purpose, such as hunting or competition. If you carry with the base license and get nicked, you're looking at minimum sentencing of at least a year.

Get cracking. Here if you need me =)

Offhand, that sounds like your 1st mistake, swapping residency in WA for one in MA. Don't get me wrong, MA is a great state in a lot of ways, but if you line up all the ways they compare there needs to be a sizeable financial or personal consideration. Money isn't everything, prolly 3rd or 4th on the list... But if you made all those choices correctly, correctly for YOU, I would still recommend pursuing measures to increase your, and your families, personal security. Hell, take up Ju-Jitsu or something ;-)
Youuuuuu MIGHT be a 'rascal' if.......(nevermind ;-)...2F

I agree with you overall on the two states, but it was for personal/family reasons and it's working out fine so far.

The cost of living is slightly higher and salaries are slightly lower for some reason in the tech sector, but I kept my old job (I now work remotely) and wife starts a new job tomorrow. We were doing fine on a single income so 2 incomes will just be gravy. We don't succumb to lifestyle inflation so that extra cash will be saved and invested and will enable fewer years of working in the future.
