My first pistol, which became my EDC in 1994, was a Ruger P90DC. It started my love of all calibers 45, but I grew weary of the sharp edges, so I sold it and switched to a Glock 21. At some point I realized I could get a Glock 30 with the same capacity, so I carried one of those for a few years. Then, I went insane, sold the G30 and bought a Beretta 96FS which has been my EDC since 2002 or so. I’ve hated it all along, but kept with it for no good reason.
After careful consideration, I picked up a Glock 17 and a couple boxes of Ranger. The holster is on the way. I’d like to get rid of the
millstone Beretta, but it’s an unpopular gun for all the reasons I dislike it, so there we are. I’ll keep it as third string EDC. I plan on getting a GM9 and (eventually) Lone Wolf Slide Melt with the race gun, front dovetail option. This gives you ultra high sights (which you need with a can) and a red dot.
This, of course, means it’s no longer EDC-able as nobody makes a holster for that. Actually, I think I will need two slides.
Shikkoku, named for the anime character, was put down this morning at about 10:30. I stayed with him until the very end – as he had been my nearly constant companion for twelve years, I could not leave him alone to die. He was truly more sinned against than sinning. His last day, I stopped the insulin injections and fed him full cans of cat food for every meal.
