I am known for having chosen the Ruger Alaskan revolver chambered in .454 Casull as my primary carry handgun. It remains my choice, years later. Via Tam, I found this survey today regarding how folks carry their heaters. Go check it out.
After thinking about it for purposes of responding to the survey, I had to acknowledge that the Alaskan is not the gun I carry most often. That title belongs to my KelTec PF9. How did that happen? Easily. I always have it. It comes with me to work (but stays in the car) every day. When I go places besides work and OC the Alaskan, the KT is on BUG duty in my weak side pants pocket or waistband.
Even during the couple weeks that the holster for my Alaskan was misplaced and I carried a Glock 20 (10mm), the KT was there as my BUG. When I want something with a smaller footprint, I switch to my Glock 29, the “compact” 10mm. KT always comes along for the ride. When I must be discreet, KT is strong side IWB. I guess that makes the KT my primary carry, even though more often than not it serves in a backup role.
And makes me a liar for claiming that the Alaskan is my primary.
Oh, well. I never claimed to be a saint.
