What's your age group and what do you carry?

I posted this poll 2 years ago and it got brought back up a few days ago. I'm going to recreate it, with a few tweaks, so you can vote in the pole.

Pick your age and type of firearm you carry the MOST.

After you vote, post your age and what gun you carry.

Once this poll runs a while, I will compare the poll from 2011 and see if/how the results have changed.

I answered for the gun I carry the most, which these days is a XDM 9mm. I do still carry my BHP's in .40 on occasion.

still a Glock

I probably missed the poll 2 years ago, but the answer for me is still a Glock22 or 27 (40S&W).

Hard to say. It depends.

38 and carry:

Steel Frame .44 Special
Alloy Frame .32 H&R Mag J-Frame
Bersa .380

I love them all. Sometimes it is hard to choose.

Why is 21 the lowest age on the poll?

58 and Illinois does not yet allow concealed carry but it's coming. I'll be carrying my Colt Model M in .32 ACP except when I can conceal larger pieces.

In that case I'll be carrying a Glock 26, a Colt Officers ACP, or another unknown at this time.

Beretta Px4 9mm subcompact, Glock 26 Gen4, Dan Wesson 15-2VH .357 Magnum, Ruger LCR .38 Special +P, Colt 1903 Model M .32ACP, Ruger 3 screw Blackhawk .357 Magnum, Ruger Bearcat .22, S&W Model 19 .357 Magnum, Colt Officers ACP .45, Glock 42

Should have had a "both" option. I regularly switch between a Model 36 S&W, Browning High Power and a Walther PP. Just depends on what I'm doing and how I feel on a particular day.

What has become my one constant is a NAA Black Widow in .22 Magnum. Carries like a pocket knife and gets carried daily in addition to or lack of anything else.

I need more than one option...age 43, I carry different sidearms depending on what I am doing. Everyday-urban carry is LCP. Woods/out of town carry is SR1911 or SP101.

5" 1911

Respectfully, I' like to see the next poll separate the 50's, 60's, 70's etc

33, carry a Taurus 709 slim most of the time, so I voted for modern plastic. Still sometimes carry an alloy frame semi auto as well.
