    A full frame gun as an EDC? Yup, that's a bit of a chore!

    While I'm not much of a "gun guy," I do own a couple that I keep for home defense.

    My nightstand gun...

    This was my EDC gun for a while, but it felt like I was carrying a cinder block...

    My employment situation has recently changed. I'm an educational administrator, and our school is moving towards the creation of a school security department. This means that certain administrators (including me) will be carrying concealed pistols. I don't want to start a debate about this practice in schools. There hasn't been a general consensus about the type of pistol that we will carry, but it has been decided that we will all carry the same pistol. So I bought a HK VP9SK in advance to try to convince the group that it's the right pistol for the security department.

    Good luck with the school security program. While I hate the fact that we need them, I am happy to see these programs go forward.

    Thanks. I don't like it either, but it's simply a matter of economics. Our SRO (School Security Officer) costs $50K+ per year - while 5 armed administrators will only cost about $7500. With all the unfunded mandates our state is passing along to the schools, this seems to be the best route.

    Initially, we will get 60 hours. Then we will get 24 hours as a yearly update. I plan on putting at least a couple hundred rounds per month through the HK - just to remain familiar with it.

    That's a good start. More time at the range won't hurt, that's for sure.

    Sounds like they have a great teammate.
    Keep up the good work.

    Unfortunately, a necessary evil.

    That being said, if you are dealing with people less familiar with firearms, a revolver might be a safer choice.

    No need to debate it and such a debate is not the intent of this thread.

    Not meant as a debate - just a practical observation.

    I wouldn't suggest allowing most 11 year olds to shoot a Barrett .50 Cal., but I let my son do it.

    It's all about knowing your capabilities and limitations.:thumbsup:

    My Dad had a thing for nice shotguns. This is "Mary Louise." She's a DHE Grade Parker Reproductions by Winchester in 20-ga. I also have her little sister, "Sarah Jessica." Sarah Jessica is a 28-ga. This gun fits me like it was custom made for me. Unbelievably nimble and quick to the target. Not bad looking, either..
