A couple of co-workers found me quite amusing today when we got on the subject of concealed carry and home defense firearms. When out of the house, i carry my Springfield Micro Compact .45, and a spare mag. I like the power of the .45 acp cartridge, especially with my gold dot hollow points, i am comforatable with it, and confident in the gun and my skills using it, and the size of this pistol makes it easy for me to carry concealed as i am a little on the slim side. While at home, i keep my Ruger GP100 .357 mag by the bedside loaded with 125gr. Mag Tech hollow points. I like the revolver for its simplicity if i need it in the wee hours of the night, and have no doubts about its ability to stop a threat, but it is a little too big for me too conceal with out a bulky coat or similar outer layer when i carry it around town. My co-workers could not understand using a different weapon for carry and for home defense, and stated it was unsafe to do so, as i may get confused if i need the revolver in the night, and try to use it like the .45 pistol ( thier words) I dont know about them, but i can tell the difference between a revolver and a semi-auto, and know how to properly use each firearm i own. I was just curious if anybody else uses different firearms for carry and home defense, or maybe rotates a few guns in turn.
