Thank you, now I can play. .45ACP for me, I hope I never need a pistol, but if I do I want it to be a .45 My custom Springfield LW Champion makes carrying one very comfortable.

Your welcome. I like .45 myself. I just need to stop multitasking and I would stop having to edit these polls.

January 13, 2014, 05:06 PM
Depends on what I'm doing. I picked .22 LR,.38 spc, .357 mag and .44 mag. Now if you ment for edc that is .38 spc and .357 mag.

January 13, 2014, 05:59 PM
For me, I carry one of the following, but usually a .357 mag. for around town.

9mm, 38 spcl, .357 mag., .40 cal, 44 mag, 45 lc, and .454 casull.


January 13, 2014, 06:03 PM
For daily carry Sig 226 in 357Sig & S&W 340 PD 357Mag (

For fun some of these (

January 13, 2014, 06:03 PM
.45 ACP in town, 10mm in the woods/mountains/at the farm.

January 13, 2014, 06:14 PM
45acp only.

9X18 Makarov

January 13, 2014, 06:38 PM
9x19 about 95% of the time, .45 ACP 5% of the time.

Can't carry yet in Illinois but I'll be carrying 9mm, .32 acp, and .38 Special when I can carry.... depending on which gun I can hide best where I am and in what I'm doing.


January 14, 2014, 08:31 AM
.45 ACP 99% of the time. Sometimes I throw a .380 in the pocket.

January 14, 2014, 10:15 AM
I'm suprised that the .40S&W is so far behind both 9mm and .45ACP in the poll. I don't have one but based on the level of support it recieves in any discussion of caliber choices I though it would put in a better showing.

January 14, 2014, 10:34 AM
22wmg always, 45acp in town and 44spl/44mag when not in town.

January 14, 2014, 12:01 PM
You didn't list the cartridge I carry most often,,,
I have a Taurus 25-PLY chambered for the .25 ACP cartridge.

Any time I can wear a light jacket,,,
That gun is in the pocket.

If I am using in my gun-toten-mamas briefcase,,,
Then I am packing a Beretta Cheetah chambered in .380 ACP.



January 14, 2014, 12:07 PM
Generally a .45apc or .357 for day to day carry out and about.
In the woods it's a .357 or .40

I carry a Ruger Blackhawk in either .45 Colt or .357 Magnum around 95% of the time. The other five percent it is a Ruger LCP in .380 ACP. (

January 14, 2014, 01:27 PM
.45GAP :evil:

January 14, 2014, 01:46 PM
Only 9mm.

January 14, 2014, 01:47 PM
EDC is 9mm (G26), with a sizeable contingent of .45acp alternatives (3x 1911s, G30, G36) and a Shield for church!

January 14, 2014, 04:48 PM
My carry needs are based on what I can conceal when I am off duty.

In cargo pants or loose fitting casual slacks, I will carry my SIG 232 in .380ACP. If that is too large, then I go down a notch to my WALTHER PPK or further down to my BERETTA Tomcat in .32ACP.

I go with the largest gun I can conceal and the difference between the PPK and the Tomcat is basically in the control and practical accuracy that I can achieve with a slightly larger gun.


January 19, 2014, 02:01 PM
Still trying to figure out why people are using the old poll thread instead of this one...

At any rate, .357 magnum.

January 19, 2014, 04:06 PM
1) 9mm.
2) .45 ACP
3) .380 ACP
4) .38 Special

January 19, 2014, 04:25 PM
.38 special. Hornady critical defense +p is a tack driver out my lcr. Though pricey.

January 19, 2014, 04:43 PM
Carry the most two ancient revolvers in 38 SW.

January 19, 2014, 06:16 PM
9mm every day.

January 19, 2014, 06:22 PM
9mm 95% of the time 45 the other 5%

9mm Luger. It is all I have, but I have two really nice guns that hold lots of them.

January 19, 2014, 09:40 PM
I realized I didn't actually answer the question in my previous post. I'd say my carry breaks down like this:

50% = .45ACP
30% = .357 Magnum
20% = 9mm

February 4, 2014, 09:07 PM
.40 100% of the time for over two years.

February 5, 2014, 12:39 AM
I'll never understand how anyone can list more than one choice in these threads. The question included the word "MOST", there can only be one you carry most, all the rest don't qualify.

February 5, 2014, 02:40 AM
I only carry one caliber, .45acp. Either in a 1911 or a XD45.

February 5, 2014, 03:17 AM
Once my permit arrives I'll be carrying a 40 S&W. Good thing my sister isn't trying to take this poll, the caliber she carries Isn't on the poll, 25 acp. Nether is my second choice of 7.62 x 25 Tokarev.

February 5, 2014, 03:22 AM
Since my Supertuck came in about a month ago, I've been primarily carrying my PPK in .380. Shoots great and is comfortable for all-day carry.

February 5, 2014, 06:31 AM
Exclusively Underwood loads in my 9mm and 45. Since I picked up a Springfield Champion Operator a few weeks ago, it has become my primary carry.

February 5, 2014, 07:32 AM
No selection .25acp?


February 5, 2014, 07:55 AM
9mm is my EDC. Might pick up a .32 for the summer and deep concealment. But for now, my parabellums are all I carry.

February 5, 2014, 08:46 AM
"Most" for me would be 22 & 44 since I carry both every day.

February 5, 2014, 08:01 PM (

LCP every day.

February 5, 2014, 08:08 PM
Need to add 9mm Mak, .25 acp, .38 S&W, and .32 S&W Long.

For me, it's fascinating to watch the numbers on this poll about how many carry what caliber - I'd love to see a similar poll done amongst folks who are not "gun aficionados" or Gun Board Junkies. I'd love to see if the general population of gun owners and folks carrying concealed mimics this poll or if this is only a sampling of what calibers are carried by folks who are really "into" handguns and all things concealed carry.

But I have no idea how that could be done.


February 6, 2014, 08:36 AM
Typically 9mm in summer, 40 in cooler weather. 10mm or 41mag while in the field depending on if I want to carry a revolover or semiauto.

February 6, 2014, 09:24 AM
Most of the time it's either 9mm or 38 Special, with 45 acp, 357 mag and 22lr getting some fairly regular carry time. Once in a blue moon calibers include 38 super, 10mm, 44 special, 44 mag, 45 Colt, 32acp, 9x18 and 7.62X25.

February 6, 2014, 06:40 PM
I'm amazed at how little 40 is carried.

February 7, 2014, 06:44 AM
I'm amazed at how little 40 is carried.
It's a 10mm "short", so I can see why people prefer the original :)

February 7, 2014, 12:22 PM
When you find a 15 to 21oz pistol that carries easy and thinly in 10mm that you can control like then buy it quick.
May 80% carry is a kahr tp40 , the 20% is a cm9 or cw9 all with underwood ammo too.

That 40sw underwood with a 155gr gold dot averages 1300fps . That's fast enough for a personal defense ammo.

February 7, 2014, 01:05 PM
Ditto on previous comments about leaving out 9 x 18 (9 Mak).

February 7, 2014, 11:58 PM
.36 cal
