    Howdy Folks

    I carry a Taurus PT-111 for my primary CCW and just got a NIB P3AT for my BUG/everyday carry. So I have some Questions.

    How many Rounds should I shoot for a Break-in period?

    Being NIB, do I still need to do a "Fluff and Buff"?

    Does anybody carry in a wallet holster and which one do you like?

    and last question, Is it safe to carry one-in-the-pipe and do you guys carry that way?

    Thanks For any answers I get and looking foward to meeting everybody!

    1- 100-200 rounds is the usual.

    2- Doesn't hurt, may help with break in.

    3- Nope, just a belt clip. To each his own.

    4- Yes, it's safe. I think most of us do. The long trigger pull is your safety.

    Couple hundred rounds

    F+B seems like personal preference to me. Like haugrdr said, it should help quicken break-in. I would rather just shoot the mess out of 'em and tackle any problems that arise individualy.

    I prefer a small IWB holster, anything that covers the trigger.

    ALWAYS 1 in the pipe. Anything less is firearm masturbation. Blindness shall follow. You have been warned.

    Personally, I like carrying my primary in a small iwb on my strong side and a Desantis for my .380 weak side pocket carry.

    For one, it seems to distribute and balance the weight and 2) seems to make sense to have access to a backup with your left hand in case your right hand is having to fight off a bad guy or is in a bad dog's mouth - lol
