Maybe a leather scabbard and a Marlin 1895 SBL.

Obtaining the hardware is only half of the want, the other half is the ability to use it unmolested.

Not so sure I'd agree with your percentages. I used to work in a business that had a gun store attacehed and concieled carry products were always in demand, maybe it's only 1 to 2% that would admit to it.

Most of us have enough guns and holsters to supply a small army.

Most people that have a CCW don't carry everyday. it's a big responsibility and it's also a pain in the ass to have that on your hip all day.

My point being that not all that carry have a CCW.

Well, that’s one way to look at it. Another would be that some in this country have muddied the second amendment so much that many good guys can’t obtain CCW’s and decide to carry anyway.

That is why I said Bad guy's 40% maybe more..

The Good guys "CCW" is about 1 or 2%

@Tammy The real question is do you load it with FMJ or hollow points? Where and how do you carry it when you ride? Love the accent color on the Glock.

I've been packing 24/7 for 40+ years, the last 15 mostly legally( with a carry permit), A must have in any major US city reguardless of local laws. --------It's a tool you pray you'll never need, but if you do, there's no substitute.

Many years ago, IPSC rules changed to incorporate a 'holster test' that was to improve the safety on ghost-style holsters and people dropping their guns on the range (yes, big no-no LOL). On the way to a level 4 match, the 1st time where this rule was going to be tested (and it entailed a person jumping off a height of 400mm without the gun jumping out or dropping out of the holster), we witnessed a relatively bad crash. An old timer in an old truck pulled out in front of a car. The car t-boned the truck and a motorcycle following behind the car then hit the car. Rider flying and summer-saulting over the two vehicles and landing on his back on the other side.

We rushed over to assist, and as I approached the rider, I recognised him as a fellow shooter on his way the range/match. His leather jacket had pulled up and his Vektor SP1 was visible inside his 'inside the pants' holster. 1st thing that jumped into my mind (sorry to say)- well at least he would pass his holster test.

He made a full recovery with just a broken arm. We had a good laugh about it later.
