I just got back from vacationing in the sunshine state. It was a great time, and while I'm a little crispy I feel much refreshment from getting away for a bit. We drove there from where I live in NC and I checked my Concealed Carry App multiple times on the trip to find out if I was unknowingly breaking any local rules or not.
At one point in Florida, I looked to see if I was breaking the law as I ate dinner where there was also a bar. I highly recommend downloading this app. It's free and you can find it, here.
Anyway, on to the pistols. So, officially released for concealed carry duty is Mossberg's newest MC1SC pistol that is now available in two tone. This is exciting news because even though it's not the biggest update, it shows that Mossberg is expanding this line further and will likely continue to do so.
As of right now, the two tone pistol is available in the regular model, as well as the cross bolt safety model.
Mossberg sent out one of the original, all black ones to me and I'm a fan. When I went on vacation to Florida last week, that's the pistol I carried on my body most of the time. I carried it in my Clinger Holster, and a Brave Response Holster. I'm looking forward to SHOT Show 2020 to see what Mossberg comes up with next, if anything.
You can read my initial impression review on the MC1SC here, and I will be updating it again soon after I finish putting another 300 rounds through it.
The new Rock Island 3.10 was announced just before I went away, but won't be officially released until later this year. I believe this is the first real attempt a gun manufacturer has made to go after SIG's p365. It's similar in size, holds 10+1 rounds of ammo, and is chambered in the bigger .45ACP.
I have formally requested that RIA send one of these to me to do a review on, so look for that in the future. This looks like a great carry gun if it works how it should. I'm personally a huge fan of the 1911's trigger so this should be interesting.
One thing is certain, new guns are almost always a good thing as it forces creativity by the competition. I'm open to these guns and am really looking forward to what is coming out as we start to gear up for SHOT Show 2020. We've already started making arrangements and I've confirmed that the invites to Range Day are out at the manufacturers.
Before we know it, we'll be covering all the gun goodness from Vegas. Stay tuned.
