    I carry a medium size camelback backpack so I have my water and a place to stash my keys in a waterproof box and other goodies I find on the beach like beer, liquor un-opened of course, wireless speakers and cell phones. I also carry waterproof bags for electronics so I can still get in the water chest deep. I wouldn't need to access the firearm while I am in the water as I feel pretty safe out there from land sharks.

    I have been carrying my FN Five Seven for many years in all sorts of austere environments, does the job.

    Only issue with it is Over Penetration.

    FN has proven its products in many theaters for decades, and unlike Glock there are no Cop Triggers.

    Just sayin.... I wasn't carrying a weapon other than my digging tool.

    Actually I have a concealed carry permit - BUT HAVE NEVER ACTUALLY CARRIED.

    I did the WAR thing, and yes my life did matter. In my personal evolution I trend more towards Ghandi. I don't kill things, don't hunt - biting insects are the exception.

    My Second Amendment stance did NOT protect me from ambush. What good does it do to carry when we wake up wondering where and who we are?
    I used my Judge to stop an assault on me already, attacked at stop light by man who was high when I refused to give him a ride, he reached in my car and grabbed my arm yanking it out of my car threatening to break it if I didn't give him a ride, I have had rotator cuff surgery on both shoulders.

    I stuck my Judge in his face and told him if he didn't let go of my arm I was going to blow his head off, when he saw the Judge he let go and took off running. Local police advised me I was with in my right when I pulled my pistol and in fact I was advised if I fired I would not have been arrested or charged. I also had witnesses to the attack.

    I like where you are going with this but personally I run the birdshot first 2 rounds then run straight .410 slugs. Any expert CC instructor will tell you that in a panic situation your blood pressure and heart rate instantly spikes. This can and often does alter your minds ability to access and identify surroundings, affects your aim and reaction times. Anyone who hasn't shot #6 highbase at close range should absolutely do so. It is quite impressive. So I shoot the birdshot first. I have to be less concerned about the safety of what is beyond the threat A miss with a plus P or solid projectile can travel for a mile if unobstructed. Secondly my chances of hitting and stopping the threat with the first shot increases dramatically. If the threat is too far away to be affective with highbase birdshot they are too far away to be very accurate with a solid projectile fired from a 2 " barrel. Just my two cents and of course IMO. and the last thing. I highly recommend that ANYONE who CC's to buy affordable insurance that will hire and pay for your attorney fees if you have to exercise your rights. This is no longer the days where you get to go home and all is forgotten. The likelihood of some form of lawsuit is more than likely. In the situation where it was stated the the LEO said you would not be charged had you fired is A) not a guarantee B) If the LEO doesn't charge you Civil Suits can be filed on you from anywhere. The targets family, District Attorneys, anti gun groups. This is no longer a protect yourself country. Sad but True

    I like the self defense rounds, you should try them sometime at a target, my .45 is hollow point and if I need to fire it will be close range.

    In the state of Florida if you are not charged by the police because it was deemed justified you can not be sued in a civil suit, it is a state law. I also carry Firearm insurance through USCCA, Elite Level.

    Oh Yes Florida. Great gun laws. Love it! I have fired the defense rounds at close range and they are impressive. Agree 100% And good on you for carrying the insurance!
    I live in California and only have a ccw because I move and carry a lot of valuables for business. They are very very hard to get and even harder to keep if you ever have to use it.

Ask any emergency room physician about how a .22 "tumbles" thru your guts as opposed to a larger Caliber going straight thru. When I'm not detecting my favorite Carry is a single stack Glock Model 43 in 9mm. Last, but not least, if I'm detecting for gold in the mountains where there are Bears I like a .357 revolver. Functions much better than an Auto if I get it dirty.
    I love this thread and it does prove a point. Everyone here has a favorite carry and for the most part they are all different. This has answered the question of the original poster. what is a good carry? Its the one you like and the one that you can shoot and be comfortable and accurate with. Lots of great guns and great ammo have been mentioned (Like +Ps) but if you can't hit anything with it I don't care how good it is. Find a weapon that you like, pick an ammo that you like. Learn how to shoot it and stick with it! That way when an emergency situation comes you can perform effectively. That is why I personally do not mix up a lot of different ammo in my Smith .410 Governor every round shoots differently and to remember what you have in what order is too much for my brain. 2 #6 and 4) slugs EZ. IMO of course
