I'm 27 and like to carry my Glock aiwb with a jframe in front pocket in Mika pocket holster. I chose revolver since if I only have one gun on me at the time, it's typically that 340pd.

Lately I've been carrying a stainless Springfield loaded 1911, but I bought a Ruger SR1911 a couple of weeks ago. Once I get a few hundred more rounds through the Ruger, it will probably replace the Springfield for EDC.

Having my CCW doesn't make me paranoid, it makes me prepared.

24 years old and I carry a Sig p239.

Although, I am adding my pre-model 10 to the permit! I shoot almost as well as the sig.

ETA: found it interesting that the +50 crowd were the largest group of CCW'ers.

I also conceal carry the XDM 9mm..what a sweet firing gun. Now, I also keep a S&W 380 Bodyguard on board. Its a most accurate little firearm with less recoil than the Reuger LCP 380.

50+ - carry a Firestar .45. Have downsized significantly these past few years. Grandchildren & all that; so no longer 50 or 60 firearms - down to the necessities ( maybe a dozen ).

62 and carry a J frame .357 magnum. Carried a J frame in my 20's, and about everything else for the next thirty some years. Now after all these years the J frame is my primary again.

I am 31 and usually carry my 1911, but I sometimes carry my SD40VE or LCP. It really depends on what I am wearing and where I am going.

There was one time where I carried a Hi-Point C9 on a bet, but that is not my proudest moment....
