Question

58, Glock 26 most of the time. On occasions when the heat and humidity preclude dressing in more than shorts and t-shirt and M60 in my pocket works best.
About half and half?

I am 53 and most often carry a g17,g19, or g27 when I can. When none of those are practical due to attire I carry an LCP.

The most interesting part of this poll to me is not what we carry, but how old we are.

29 answered 1911/HP style
Carry a CZ75 most often. Being it's a 38yr old design it is definitely not modern. It is timeless though. Just like the other two.

Also carry a S&W 10-6 quite a bit too.

I carry a P229 40+ hours a week on The Job, an SP101 much of the time, on and off The Job, and in a pocket much of the time at home. A G17 goes to work with me as a spare pistol, and is also carried concealed quite a bit during my personal time? The only one easy to eliminate is the 1911, though I do carry it sometimes. By the rules of the poll, I must presently answer "revolver," even though it is certainly a secondary weapon, because it gets so much total carry time.

FWIW, I recently got away from my long-standing habit of trying to carry one "primary" handgun for all reasons, when my P229's .40 recoil started to hurt my aging, aching right wrist so badly. I am hoping my chief authorizes the G17 as an alternate duty pistol; he has publicly stated he is about to expand the list of approved duty pistols.

Perhaps I should wait a few months to answer the poll? I might be carrying mostly polymer by early next year, if I start carrying the G17 as a duty pistol, and acquire a G26 or G19 for some CC/back-up duties.

Nearing 38, but the poll wont let me answer that I carry a .45 Blackhawk, and an M&P.40 at the same time.

And? It is still legal to possess and carry in SOME (ie: FREE) states at 18, and probably more states than you think. Should we just ignore the 18 to 20 year old population that has the desire to protect themselves?

Depends on what I am doing

Either a 2 " snub 38+p or a Smith Bodyguard 380. Sometimes a 3" 38. I have a lot of options. My XD 3.8 9mm is also in the mix. Shoot a 1911 a lot but do not carry it. Same with M92 9mm, and 4 & 6 inch 357s.

33. I usually carry a Sig P238 in a RKBA pocket holster, although I occasionally carry a FN Hi-Power in a IWB HBE Com2 holster.

I recently acquired an STI Spartan IV 9mm (4" 1911) and a CrossBreed supertuck holster for it, and have been experimenting with carrying that.

It isn't very nice or accurate to group a 51 year old in with a centenarian...

Why not simplify it and say 0 - 50, 51+?

How about 64+ and carry a P64 CZAK in my pocket and a Pistolet Makarova in my truck?

PokerSamuri,

Curious...what's your occupation and how do you dress? Guessing the large revolver is upper and smaller in an ankle, but how do you carry the speed loaders?

They are sweet wheelies for sure!

Probably a lot of correlation between average age on the forum and typical level of civility versus other gun forums with higher ratio of younger shooters

I had the same thought.
I'm 58 and lugging around a S&W 4006 is starting to get to me. I am considering a change in my EDC.
