Does anyone here ever carry their gun without a holster, under what circumstances?
Too funny, I've been in that situation. I often wear basketball shorts and put my XD in the waistband. I was at walmart one time and had stuff in both hands, all the sudden I felt my holster start slipping out of my waistband. I had to walk to the nearest shelf drop my stuff and adjust the holster without being obvious about it. Not a comfortable situation to say the least.Goldfinger said:I carry my Taurus Millenium and my Beretta Tomcat in my back pocket without a holster. Don't need a holster. Tried carrying a big Ruger P91DC back in the 90s' in a Mexican carry fashion until I was in a small quickie mart and while my arms were full of groceries I felt that big 40 cal sliding down my pants leg. Panic time. I must have looked like I was stealing a frozen chicken, or having a full-on body spasm the way I was trying to keep the gun from hitting the floor and not drop my soon-to-be purchases. Live and learn.

I want something with enough hitting power that it can discourage an attack or kill outright when I shoot.
Anything less in my opinion is just not self defense.
