Why is 21 the lowest age on the poll?
I would think the youngest age to legally carry in most states would be 21.

Not enough catagorys

I voted for the 50+ semi auto / polymer.

But that does not include the BUG [ revolver = usually ] nor the Kimbers or revolvers that I do often carry as woods guns or CCW's [ Kimbers ].

If your that easy to pidgoen hole,then I think you need more variety and a larger safe

Glock 23 / 27 / 19 / 30SF /

S&W 13,386,442,360,29,

Ruger Sec 6,Superblkhwk,101,

Kahr PM40,

Kimber supercarrycustom,Solo,Custom II CDP.

All see belt/pants time during year.

50+ It was a Glock 23 back in the day but now that I'm retired it's usually a J-frame.

I too retired 7 years ago [ this coming dec ] but as the world is not a kinder place.

And I am older and slower,I still opt for the G-23 as the primary,or a large pistol of that size and defensive abilitys.

It would be SO very easy to go light and hump a 'J' frame,but when I do it seems THAT is the time to run into past 'clients' or be in a social setting that might erupt.

Rather be safe than sorry.Besides I aint no fashion plate so who notices what an old 'harmless' man wears or how he dresses

Too limited in choices. I'm well into the 50+ category, yet at times I carry everything from an 1860 Army to a Glock 30. All depends on my mood.

I'm 47 but didn't vote because I pretty evenly split time between my snubs and my Kahrs.

Still, several states allow you to carry at 18. NC does.

40 plus here.

While in the woods, I carry my Ruger GP100.

CCW is one of 2 handguns, depending on attire. One is a revolver.

So the revolver is the one I have with me most of the time.

Glock 26
Glock 19
Sig RCS
Springfield EMP XDs 1911a1
Diamond Back 380
S&W 360, 686, 29, 460xvr

There are some others, but they don't get carried as often. It really depends on a lot of different factors.

52 yoa.

60 and I most often carry one or another of my more than half a dozen J-frames.

I agree there ought to have been more than an "either/or" choice, though.

As a longtime firearms instructor/armorer & retired LE I have a fairly large assortment of 9's, .40's, .45's & revolvers which see a lot of range time when I'm working range sessions.

Depending on the time of year, and/or whatever I'm using for training at any particular time of each month (and which see carry roles around those range times), I could answer differently.

I'd been pretty much an exclusive revolver & 1911 owner/user up until I was required to start carrying an issued S&W TDA at the introduction of the 3rd gen line, and then later on I expanded my interest to include some of the plastic guns as they became increasingly popular among LE users and I was attending armorer classes (SW99/P99, Glock, M&P).

Having carried one or another revolver or semiauto pistol with a badge for a little over 30 years, and being retired, I tend to reach more for the smaller & lighter snub revolvers and compact/subcompact pistols for retirement CCW.

The steel 1911's, K/N-frame & Service-Six/Redhawk revolvers see more range & safe time than carry time nowadays.

Even my lightweight SW1911SC 5" and M&P 45 don't see as much carry time as they did before I retired.

Over 50 and recently switched my primary from a Makarov to a PF9. The PF9 is smaller and lighter, hence the change.

I also carry revolvers on occasion, but for now the PF9 is my go to carry gun.

The next challenge is to figure out something for my daughter to carry, she's 18 and wants to get a carry permit (legal in this state). Trying to let her shoot as many handguns as I can, but there is no place nearby that rents them, so it's what I have plus whatever I can beg, borrow or steal.

So far it's looking like some sort of small frame revolver, but we still have a few more options for her to try.
