Its probably better to be self deprecating than self defecating.
I don't see anything wrong with it as a carry piece. It's lighter and it has less that'll need protection from rust 🤷‍♀️

This is my Ranger. There are many like it, but this one is mine.
recently picked up a S&W M&P 2.0 Compact for my main piece. pretty happy with it so far

Crossed threads are tight threads.
If I ever buy a carry gun it will be a .380 of some sort. Ideally double action and doesn't need the mag to shoot. Tactical.

I tend to agree more now then before I bought it. It was a RKGuns special buy and they were nearly giving them away. I wanted something that the wife could just point and squeeze. It fits that criteria well really.

I'm going to carry it for a minute and if it fits and comfortable enough... I may just get basically the same gun with a steel frame that I can mod a bit. Then this one goes back to doing what I originally bought it to do.
They have some great deals that's where I got my g2c. I paid 248. It's 208. Last time I looked.
edit they are 199.00

I was at the store to get a new hitch receiver the other day since I couldn't find the one I needed to move the boat. I saw they had these "tactical" trailer hitch ball mount/ball combos. WTH does that even mean? Is it somehow better for bludgeoning someone?

Quoting from that website: "The unique design of the hitch ball and clevis allows you to swap out a 2-in ball for a 2-5/16-in ball (P/N 7090100) Sold seperately. "

Funny, I thought the ability to swap a hitch ball was a common feature among reciever ball mounts. Some are one piece with the ball welded on, but most the ball bolts in. That P/N provided looks like just a standard bolt in ball with a tactical length shank.
