Many years ago, when I was a beat cop, I carried a Colt Mustang .380 ACP as my backup gun every day. A while back, when I was practicing at the range with this same gun, I noticed that once the pistol had a few rounds through it, the trigger got increasingly harder to pull and finally failed to fire at all after several magazines were run through it. Not Good!
In today's episode of "I Carry," we have a Smith & Wesson Bodyguard 380 pistol with a Crimson Trace red laser carried in a Galco Pocket Protector holster and a Fenix E02R flashlight.
Caliber is a critical aspect of ammunition, but it is something that is also often misunderstood or misrepresented. As it relates to firearms, caliber by definition—according to Merriam-Webster—is either A: the diameter of a bullet or other projectile, or B: the diameter of the bore of a gun usually expressed in hundredths or thousandths of an inch and typically written as a decimal, such as .35 caliber.
I’m a believer in the old expression “You never get a second chance to make a first impression.” Browning apparently believes in it, too, because its newest downsized Black Label 1911 makes a fantastic first impression.
In today's episode of "I Carry," we have the new Ruger LCP Max .380 ACP pistol carried in a DeSantis SuperFly pocket holster, along with an LA Police Gear F1 flashlight.
Now Browning is adding another new Model 1911-380 to their ranks, the Black Label Pro American Flag model.
