So what do you guys who actually carry blue steel use to keep it from rusting? What's your daily procedure, not just the product? I rarely carry, but you never know. I have a preference for the Colt Combat Commander, FWIW. Got big hands.

Here's a test result after exposing a metal bar to two months in the elements:

To keep the rust down, I use hoppies gun oil . A little wipe down every so often. a complete disasimbling and cleaning now and then. Most my guns are old and no rust.

Taurus .44 mag
Desert Eagle .44 mag
Smith and Wesson XD tactical .45 acp
Ruger LCP .380
Kel Tec 9mm
Smith and Wesson model 13-3 .357 mag
Uberti Cattleman .45 LC
Russian made Makarov in 9x18 Makarov
Taurus PT 92 in 9mm

I keep the S&W .45 in my truck, and the Ruger LCP in my pocket. I forgot to add my other carry gun, a Taurus .357 mag snubby revolver. My next purchase will be a .50 AE barrel and magazine for the Desert Eagle, so I have the ability to swap calibers.
I love the Taurus, if we were allowed to own guns and I could afford one I would definitely own a Magnum, those babies are all muscle and I love em, oh well, back to boring old British banality....

Thanks DoverPipes and Plumbernater. I guess I ought to have asked what should a slackerboy who hates cleaning guns use to protect it if he carries every day. The Froglube really looks interesting--but the Hoppe's smells so damn good! (I once heard from a female of the species that real men also use it, or should use it, as an aftershave.)

I also use a silicone impregnated cloth to wipe my guns down. Regular cleaning, lubricating and attention to detail should keep your blued steel corrosion free!

Although I do not own a gun myself, this thread, and the comments from those outside the country, have really made me appreciate our right to bear arms.

Yeah, I used to be anti-gun, more or less. Not militantly so, but just as a default position if asked. Thank God for friends, their powers of persuasion, and my reasoning skull. Now I'm NRA Life and proud of it. The right to own a gun and free speech are basic rights, and I wouldn't want to live under a government that didn't recognize them.

There is obviously a counter argument supporting gun control. On balance I'm pro gun ownership but I always find it helpful to read differing perspectives......

Getting hooked on handguns is easy, the hard part has become feeding them, either finding/ affording the ammo, or gathering reloading components.

I've always admired the look, feel and easy pocketability of the Walther PPK and thought the infamous home invasion in CT would give me an opening to get one, but my missus heard that the old 20 gauge in my closet was the perfect home defense weapon. Back to the drawing board.

I miss my 1911's. Most of my cool stuff went the way of sales to eat and pay rent. They kept my synthesizers safe from sale (plus, a good old synth is harder to find).

Back at the thinned-out ranch, I make do with a Bersa UC .45, a Taurus Judge sport in 2 3/4 I carry for field work, and a pretty rare Nazi P-38.

The wish list is long and stupidly unobtainable, but...dreams are nice. Laughing

After electronic-stuff, gun engineering is mesmerizing.

Cool

Fatman and the other 380 carriers.   What ammo do you load up in those?

Speer Gold Dot 95 gr JHP
Remmington Golden Saber 95gr JHP
Federal Hydra Shock 95gr JHP

Are all good

Additionally one mag filled with 95gr FMJ (usually Fiocchi)

The primary concerns of 380 auto is the lack of penetration. By having a mag of JHP and FMJ you cover both grounds in terms of expansion and penetration.

That being said shot placement is always the key.

Federal Hydra Shock 95gr JHP is what I have in the magazine, I have to echo shot placement! In the winter I carry my snubby .357, penetration is less of an issue and it carries well in a jacket pocket What a Face

That CorBon SD is what I have loaded in my Ruger LCP. (2nd Gen, unofficial). Feeds reliable and is pretty hot.

My other weapons are mostly range toys now.

I had a S&W 686 with 2.5 bbl I carried for over a decade. Had black silverwood grips. Sweet looking but what a handful. I always joked that even if I missed they'd die. The concussion would stun them while the fireball burned them up.

Just out of curiosity, how many of you guys actually carry handguns with you in your everyday life and why?
