I'm going next week to a hunt trip and i'm looking for a concealed carry holsters for my Beretta 950BS, i went with my friend in 2018 to Colorado Rifle Club, Byers, i used my Weatherby sa08 with 5.56 ammo and my friend with same rifle but with 223 ammo and we both made a compression, i tried 223 ammo for first time on my rifle and actually it was good and accurate more than 5.56 ammo, that is what my friend said too he felt that the recoil is heavier with 5.56. I also read a compression on for bullets compression, on this trip we'll work on another compression. But before to go i need to buy a carry holster for my gun , i don't have one because i just bought the gun last week !

What is the value of 1920 O LC Smith 16 gauge double barrel field grade shotgun

Hello, Roger - is a website intended for asking and answering questions on how to go about repairing things. is not a website which can provide valuation estimates for anything, except perhaps the cost of repairing some item.

I found the following information on the L.C. Smith Collectors Association website:
General Information
How can I determine the value of my L.C. Smith?
Gun value is determined by grade and gauge rarity, amount of remaining original finishes, condition of mechanics and wood, and an intangible called "Collectability" (collectible gun values can vary upwards and downwards with demand fluctuations).

Another important factor impacting value is the "Historical Factor." In those rare instances, an otherwise low-grade and abused 1890 hammer gun, worth only the price of the nails used to hang it over the mantle, could be worth thousands of dollars if its provenance can be unquestionably connected to a colorful and legendary historical figure such as Doc Holliday or member of the Dalton gang; a famous show person or shooter such as Annie Oakley or Captain A.H. Bogardus; or a Hollywood actor such as Clark Gable or Humphrey Bogart.

Since it is impossible to accurately assess gun condition and originality, either by description or internet image postings, the L.C. Smith Collectors Association cannot, and does not provide estimates of gun value.

Possible sources for such value determinations include various internet auction sites, like GunBroker, Guns International,; and, outside the internet, The Blue Book of Gun Values, published each year and used by all gun dealers. Copies of this book are available in almost every gun shop and book store; and should also be available in your local library. Pay particular attention to the "condition" examples featured at the front portion of this book when evaluating your gun.

The Shotgun World website has a forum for questions regarding "Shotgun I.D. and Value".
Often, dealers who specialize in vintage double guns are willing to provide a written estimate of value for insurance purposes. When you ask a dealer to appraise your gun, understand what it is you want to know. If you tell the dealer you wish to sell the gun, you will receive a "wholesale" value. The dealer would be buying to resell, and the difference between his cost and the sales price is his profit. If you ask for a value for insurance purposes, you will receive a high valuation that is most likely more that the gun would bring on the open retail market; therefore the actual value of the gun lies somewhere between the wholesale and appraised value of the gun.
Also remember that "sentiment" is not a value factor; and therefore, never enters into any estimate of gun value. A part of family history is the family...but not to a purchaser of that "family treasure".

To better estimate/understand gun value, it is also helpful to visit large gun shows (like the Las Vegas Antique Arms Show or Wanamaker Gun Show in Tulsa), and note the prices of guns in similar condition and grade as yours.

Finally, please remember that "Knowledge Is Power", and the more research you do, the better you are prepared. Don't be timid about asking for information on the Forum; and additionally, we suggest you begin your research with a copy of John Houchins' in-depth work on the Smith gun, "L.C. Smith, The Legend Lives."

Warmest regards,
Drew Hause, Tom Archer, and Bill Hambidge

Best wishes.

What are the common mistakes people usually make while carrying concealed?

As others will probably give you some common general concealed carry mistakes, here are some tips when it comes to carrying concealed in your purse:

  • Do not sling your purse over the top of the chair at a restaurant. The purse, along with your gun, is easily snatched this way.
  • Do not put your purse in the children's seat in a grocery cart. Again, it can be snatched too easily.
  • Have a separate "going out" bag. Many states have laws against carrying in an establishment that serves alcohol.
  • Remove your gun from your purse every night. This puts you in the habit of removing it and putting it back in the morning, so you never become complacent and forget you are carrying it.
  • Before travelling, use the buddy system. Have someone else double-check all of your bags, including your purse, for guns, ammo or magazines.
  • Keep a separate travelling purse and carry-on that your gun never goes in. This will make sure you do not accidentally show up at the airport while carrying.
  • Download the iPhone app, Carry Alerts for $2.99. The app warns you when you are entering a "gun-free zone." The alerts will remind you that you have a gun in your purse.

What does pd mean on a smith & wesson magnum 357

The PD series is Smith & Wesson's idea of a handgun that is lightweight enough to be always on hand when needed but it is not necessarily intended to be shot often. Carry ability and concealment are optimized while heft and shooting comfort are sacrificed.

"Personal Defense", PD as opposed to a gun that is mainly intended to be a range gun, showpiece or race gun (Performance Center, PC) or sidearm for military or police (M&P).
