    When I lived in Dallas and managed a bar, it was always a Glock 19 IWB.

    Moved to a much smaller, quieter town and can't carry at my new job. When I carry anymore, it's usually a 642 in my pocket. I will carry the Glock every now and again, but usually it just pulls nightstand duty.

    EDC is a G36 IWB in a Kydex LAG tatical. On the occasion I wear my "fat pants" I carry my G20c 10mm in an Aliengear IWB. When I go to my brothers house in Virginia City, NV I have carried my Ruger Vaquero 44mag in a Triple K Cheyenne under my drover coat. Kind of cool to go old west once in a while.

    I'm really thin (6'1" and 140 lbs.) so I need a thin gun or pocket carry or I'll print like a mother. I've carried a Bodyguard .380, J-Frame .38, Ruger LC9, and more recently a Kahr CW9.

    I carry a S&W mod 4553TSW. It is the only gun I have carried the last seven years(maybe only six). Before that it was a Colt diamondback in .38 special. I only carry IWB in a holster I made. Looks like a Milt Sparks summer special.

    I carry an Ruger LCR most of the time. Otherwise, it's an S&W Shield.

    Prior to my Joining the Marine Corps in 1966, I only shot revolvers, S&W 38spls.

    In the Corps, starting in 1966 and used in combat in Vietnam the 1911A1, in 67,68,69. I also used a Victory model S&W in combat too. When I left the corps in I returned to my revolver ways.

    In the mid 80's I fooled with the Glock but didn't care for it, and had problems with the Glock 17 magazines. Stuck with the Wheel guns, I used either a S&W 13 or 66 both with 3" barrels. Carried in a Proline OWB holster. Proline as you know morphed into Kramer Leather about 20-25 years ago.

    I worked for a Sheriffs Dept which went to SIG's in the early 90's. I took to the SIG P228 like a duck to water. My present 228 has just over 37,000 rounds. (Yes thousands) I stopped carrying/shooting 228's in the early 2000's due to arthritis in my hands. Went back to my 1911's.

    Went to a Colt LtWgt 21st Century Commander (Wiley Clapp) which was further customized by Eric Zin of the CZ custom shop in Mesa Arizona. From time to time I also carry a Walther PPQ or HK P30.

    I have been using the Wilderness 5 stitch belt for almost 30 years, for IWB for virtually every carry pistol I own I have both a Milt Sparks VMII and a Kramer 11/2 both IWB. For OWB I prefer the Safariland ALS 6377/78. I use them for Competition too. OWB For the Colt Commanders I use the Wilson Combat Tactical Assault holster, I have one for my Government models too..

    Some folks have asked me why I still use the Colt? My answer is that 7 or so of the fights that I had to go to my sidearm it was, a 1911A1, only three times I used a revolver. I survived all my handgun fights without getting wounded, can't say that for all my firefights. I guess the better answer is I know what that particular gun and I can do and not do in a firefight.

    Go figure.

    P238 or G42 IWB at 4 o'clock.
    I'm 5'7 and 150-155lb. I wear slim fit pants, most of my shirts are tailored, and my T shirts are fitted. I'm not willing to dress around a bigger gun.

    Walther P99 AS (9mm) in a hybrid IWB holster.

    I have found overall height as the determining concealable factor, for me. The P99 is listed at 5.3". My Full size PX4 is listed at 5.5" and there is a definite difference in printing of the handgun grip.

    I think ideal would be a 5.0" overall height, so I've been thinking of going to a CZ P-01, PCR or P-02. That way, I'd still get 14+1 capacity. Most of the sub-compacts only give you 10.

    Usually an om Smith bodyguard or Browning 1910 for city carry. On the road or at the farm a custom model 57/8, 27 or Coonan. Barbeque guns are Smith 57 or BHP both are engraved.:D

    I tried plastic fantastic guns. Just don't have the right feel for me.

    Always at least two good folders.

    I've carried an M1911 for over 50 years -- currently a Kimber Custom Classic (their basic model) which I've had for about 20 years now.

    Currently a LC9 in an IWB hybrid holster. My CZ-75D Compact PCR is waiting for a UGB IWB holster to arrive and the plan is to start carrying that.

    Over the years, I've carried a Kimber Custom 11 .45 acp. Also rotate with a Glock 23 @ 1 o' clock IWB . Usually can wear a shirt loose enough not to print.

    Mostly my glock 23 the last 10 years with a little usp 45c sprinkled in time to time. Soon after I put a few more rounds through my ppq that will be carried exclusively. Something about the ppq I just love more than my others

    Pocket carry in DeSantis Nemisis holster. Rotate between Beretta Nano, Kimber Solo, Kahr PM9, Kahr P380, or Glock 42. Depends on what I am wearing and size of the pockets.

    Since I take the bus to class and ride the bike to work, lately it's rare I carry.
    When I do, it's a Taurus .38 in my front pocket. If I can strap the holster on, it's a CZ PCR in a FIST Inc. adjustable IWB.

    Springfield 1911 Loaded 5" barrel. My favorite pistol. With a good belt and holster, you don't even know it's there.

    Went from a G19 to a Kimber Pro carry to a Springfield XD45 to a Kel-Tec PF9 to my current carry, a Kahr CW 45.

    It depends. Usually, its a S&W Shield.

    If I'm riding my bike, or hiking I carry my Ruger SR9.

    Sometimes, I carry my 1911 in .45

    If I can't get away with anything else, I carry an LCP or a J-Frame.
