The hollywood actors who train you are slim and fit .
The people who want to carry guns like hollywood are a different shape .
Boom .

Really fat guys could carry in fat folds.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 57179531


Just how could fat guys do this? And how would it be a reliable and safe carry method?

It doesn't make the cops nervous? Back in the 50's and 60's, fast draw was a big thing. You've seen the youtubes. Draw with your right hand and fan the hammer with your left hand. No cop could get his glock out that fast.
 Quoting: Pilgrim001


Otherwise known as the BEST way in the world to BREAK your single action.

The ones you see in vids have been specially set UP to do that... By gunsmiths that specialize in cowboy action shooting or fast draw events.

On a normal single action "fanning" will QUICKLY break the hand spring...

I carry a snub nosed 1860 with a thunder grip and .45 colt conversion cylinder almost every day... I practice with a single handed draw as well as two handed.. Mostly I use the "off" hand, in two handed, to cock the weapon...

I dont play dress up and all of my sidearms are every day "working guns".
 Quoting: Stormson 60513442


so you carry a shortened version of the 1860 Army percussion revolver converted to .45 Colt black powder cartridges?

What is a thunder grip?

Why would you use this as your carry pistol?
 Quoting: s. d. butler


Yes and no... It has a conversion that is able to handle smokeless rounds or BP. Though not the upper range of 1000+ fps, and soft cast least is best as the jacketed rounds will wear out the forcing cone over time.

A thunderer grip is a style of birdheads grip... Didnt come out until the 1877-1878, but fits on the 1860.

I carry this because it suits my needs best. I get into rough terrain sometimes and the single action just WORKS, always, every time. I live in a very rural area and dont expect to get into a gunfight with an entire squad any time soon... And If I did I would be carrying a RIFLE not a sidearm anyway. If I DO have a confrontation with two legged critters, the 250gr soft lead will handle the job, but I much more expect snakes or feral dogs, etc...

I always thought the name mexican carry was funny.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 72606663


¡I hope they don't use that in any gun forums or they will be flagged as hate speech! As much as some people panic when they see a gun being carried, it's super rare for bad guys to use holsters. They're usually busy holding their baggy jeans up and checking the heater.

Re: why you always carry your firearm in a holster
I sometimes appendix carry but I'm too scared to do it with a round chambered.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 73722498


I worry about inadvertently squeezing the trigger, so right now I'm not carrying a round in the chamber. If any shit happens, they'll have to give me a second to chamber one.
 Quoting: Pilgrim001

No doubt they would. Criminals are always gentlemen.

Situational awareness is a good thing

What are the odds you're going to have to quick draw, old west style?

Re: why you always carry your firearm in a holster
Two thoughts as a regular open carry citizen with occasional concealed carry:
1. A properly functioning gun in a proper holster is considered safe. There is no possibility of negligent discharge unless one makes the mistake of administrative handling while out and about.

2. A gun without one in the chamber is about as useful as a rock. Folks incorrectly believe they'll have both time and ability to rack a round successfully, which assumes your arms have not taken hits and you aren't having to fight the threat off your person. Most self defense shootouts occur within 8 yards and adrenaline ruins fine motor control meaning you may get a malfunction.

Re: why you always carry your firearm in a holster
IMHO, anyone who carries a semi-auto for self defense is an idiot. Way too many things can go wrong... especially during a struggle. With a revolver, just pull the trigger again. Flame away...

Re: why you always carry your firearm in a holster
Two things

-If you ever plan on a quick draw reaction, better know what you're doing (factor in those fine motor skills and adrenaline), we've all seen the video of the dude in the cowboy hat

-Revolvers malfunction

I don't claim to be an expert, cheers everyone

I'm still waiting on a revolver that can carry 20+1 and reload another 20 in under 2 seconds.

Re: why you always carry your firearm in a holster
In states where open carry is legal, like Texas, what kind of reaction would cops have to a western holster strapped to your leg with a cowboy style wheel gun in it, for Fast Draw. If a cop reached for his gun, would you assume it was a threat to your life?

Not nearly as often as a semi-auto. And you don't have to worry about short stroking the slide, jams, stove pipes, etc.
