Description: This ad from a popular handgun retailer in 2020 shows just how deluded some people are if they think this package represents an "IDEAL EDC" or "everyday carry" package. How
is this ideal? It may be ideal to carry
unobtrusively with comfort, and that, unfortunately is what too many in the concealed carry world think carry a firearm is all about. Hardly. The real reason for carrying a firearm is as the last and final option in personal protection should the unthinkable happen and your life is in danger of being ended. To that end, you need a firearm that is shootable. A lightweight handgun with a tiny sight radius, excessive recoil, no grip to speak of in order to make shooting it practical under *emergency* conditions is hardly the firearm you want in your hands if you have to defend your life for real. These lightweight, tiny revolvers are for experts who will practice with them weekly if not daily, and even those people will usually find something better. Don't let gun magazine writers convince you that this sort of carry package is remotely "IDEAL."
