    Its the 1970s, what r you carrying?

    If i lived in a different time Im pretty sure I would still like guns. I bet all of you would too. Its the 70's what are you carrying?

    Im going with the Smith and Wesson M29 or the HK VP70 (which I wouldn't have heard about back then unless i was smart). (surprised i didn't pick the 1911), but I think back in the day I would have a wheel gun tho over the VP70.

    I was carrying a Colt Police Positive, 4 inch barrel in 38 special and it worked because I knew how to shoot it.

    I carried a cheap Saturday night special 25 auto while working at an all night gas station in the bad part of town. It worked because one night I took it out and for some unknown I shot a hole through the door with it.
    I didn't aim it or anything I just pulled it out and pulled the trigger. Severe lack of sleep makes you do weird things.
    It was a solid core door so the bullet did not go through it. The door was painted white so I chewed up a piece of white paper and stuck it in the hole. It was a perfect match.
    I quit the next morning and drove straight to the Air Force Recruiters office and signed up.

    in the early 80s i was working graveyard at a crappy gas station in the central valley of california....it was right at a freeway offramp and in the winter the fog kept anyone driving by from seeing anything going on at the pumps (perfect for a stop and rob) .... i was teaching judo at the local junior college and i usually had a pair of nunchuks on me or near by...... one day, at the am shift change a sheriff saw them and damn near arrested me for the illegal weapon .... the owner of the place went to his truck, brought back a 4in dan wesson .357 and gave it to me. the sheriff handed me back the nunchuks by my boss, never took back the pistol..... some people just get it!

    Undercover Charter Arms .38 special revolver with a bobbed hammer and custom fingergroove grips carried in my hip pocket, boot or sometimes in a leather pancake OWB belt holster. After it was stolen in a home break-in a few years ago, I replaced it with a SS .44 special Charter Pug.

    It is hard to remember exactly. It was a 32 auto and I don't remember the brand. I do remember trading it at a pawn shop on Whidbey Island for a pair of binoculars, which I still have.

    I was living in Southern California.
    Concealed carry without a permit was a "wobbler": If it was your first offense, it's a misdemeanor; and subsequent offenses are felonies.
    I do not wish to publicly admit to any sort of illegal activity.
    At the time, I owned and was using a couple of full-size M1911s in IPSC/SWPL competition.

    Ruger MK-I Target .22 auto, or .44 Magnum Super Blackhawk (CCW was for well-connected upstanding citizens only, back then; these were carried openly, whenever I was out in the rural areas, hunting or woods-walking).

    Wasn't around then, but if I had to dream it would be a S&W model 27 5". A BHP wouldn't be bad either. Maybe a model 39.
