I never felt bad about wearing a 1911 in a Saleen prepared Raptor🤣
I’ve been driving my 73 F250 a lot lately. It’s a long bed so it’s a lot more useful for small lumber loads than my Duramax.

Problem is, I feel weird carrying a 320 with all the modern do dads. Rolling down the road with that appendix just breaks the feeling of driving an old single cab. Wife thought it was dumb but approved a new old style handgun.

1911 or revolver. I’m thinking a no rail 1911A1 from Springfield or an old colt. Or a nice S&W 357 magnum. I’ve never owned either. Both feel good in my hands, and I’ve shot other peoples. 357 would take a little practice but I’m good with a 1911.

So what say you older guys. If you go back to 1973 what would a guy in his 30s. If I get a 1911 I’m thinking about getting a shoulder holster because that says old school to me.
S&W 625 in .45 ACP, with moon clips, acts like a speed loader, and a 1911 .45 ACP as backup with extra mags.

Which ever remember practice practice and practice. I carry a Colt series 70 gold cup, on the right hip. I still like my S&Ws. I also have a Para Expert carry that I like, Is lighter and more comfortable to carry.
