    Well I'm thinking of going back and carrying my Taurus mod 85 again. I haven't carried it in over 10 years.
    I just got a shield but only shot it 30 times due to sight problem.
    I carry my lcp everywhere
    I carry my kahr 9 this time of year.
    what do you carry?

    Well, when I'm feeling whimsical or just born in the wrong century.

    Ruger LCR goes in the pocket for a backup.

    Thinking of going wheelgun only if I ever run across a GP100 4" at a decent price...

    LCR would still be the backup of course :D

    I have a GP100 6 inch too heavy for me.It used to be my side arm when hunting.I only carry it now when tracking a deer and don't want to take my rifle.
    Now I will carry my 40 shield when hunting and around town.The GP100 will still be there just in case I need it.

    I've been buying auto loaders over the last 40 years or so, in hope I'll develop a taste for one, hasn't happened. I still carry a wheel gun, most commonly one of my S&W snubs in .357, some times a full barreled one, and even a big ol SRH 44 mag.. Now and then I'll grab one of my sub compact AL's, but not very often, those usually end up in my wife's purse.

    I don't have a problem with AL's per say, as al of mine have been 100% reliable, I just have more confidence in a wheel gun.

    No flippers, no levers, and no hammer snag.

    A 642 has been in my pocket for 20 years in uniform. Often a 3" 65 off duty.

    I recently stumbled into a 2.25" sp101 and I love it. For me, its the perfect combination of heft, packability, accuracy, and potency.

    I love my autos for some applications, but the stubby, chunky little .357 is what's riding on my hip.

    I carry a S&W 642, with pachmayr loaded with 135gr+p gold dots, in a pocket holster. If I did it over again I would go for the 640 pro, but that's just me.

    I have other full size guns I carry in my computer bag, but 90% of the time I carry this (with Federal 140 grain Barnes in 357 mag) in my pocket with a nemesis holster or clip draw. It's kind of an ugly duckling but it is reliable.

    I have a few Snubs I carry. Always Two at a time. Taurus 617, Ruger SP101, Ruger LCR357, S&W 442, S&W 37. The Wife has a 605 Taurus but, rarely carries. That's why I carry Two.

    I generally carry a full size M1911 (currently a Kimber Classic MKI). But I have been known to drop a Colt Detective Special in my jacket pocket as I go out the door.

    642 - in fact it's on right now as I sit in front of the computer. Very comfortable. When not the 642, then a Sig P250SC in 9mm.
