    Glock 29 is getting most of the love these days. I almost always carry IWB. Don’t open carry but if did would be my Glock 20.

    Lately I've been carrying a S&W Shield the most, with the 8-round magazine +1 chambered. The main reason I carry it nowadays instead of my Glock 19 is simply the holster. I have a Tulster with a quick clip that hangs onto the belt very well when drawing the pistol but comes easily off the belt and goes easily onto it whereas the Glock rides in a Blade-Tech with belt loops. Though the belt loops have snaps on them, they do not snap on easily, which means I have to unbelt, weave it on, rebelt. So, I'm lazy...

    I have several guns that I use for concealed carry. My favorite is the lightly customized Colt Combat Commander shown in my avatar. When invited to a BBQ and informal range session I'll probably open carry that same Commander.

    Favorite carry gun is Sig p365. 10 round flat mag when pocket carrying, 12 round mag when on the belt. I also find myself carrying my Ruger LCP2 throughout the year.

    Glock 19.

    Sure some are easier to carry and some have better triggers, etc., etc., but at the end of the day it’s 15 rounds in a compact frame that I have complete confidence in.

    My manner of dress has changed so it is unfortunately no longer my EDC, but my favorite carry gun remains a Firestar in .45acp.

    Went out of production years ago. Glad I bought four mags when it was still possible to find them!

    Daytime its the Sig 938. Nocturnal; something with at least a light (I like the Surefire X400). Crepuscular; something with a laser.

    (Living in the desert and studying wildlife can teach you cool words like "crepuscular" so you can come off like some snooty A-hole on a message board.)

    Saving for one myself. Unless the new Dan Wesson DWX compact really wows me

    Typically I conceal my HK P30 (9mm). Lately my Springfield XDm 10mm has been gettin some holster time. The 10mm is a full size pistol but with the Aliengear Cloak slide owb holster and a steel core gun belt even concealing that beast is easy.

    Decided to enter the 21st century and put one of these new fangled laser dealies on my CCW and finally trust it enough to carry, so the 19 got an upgrade.

    I was pretty skeptical about the red dots to start but about a thousand live rounds and several thousand dry fires and I'm feeling pretty good using it now, just as fast as my irons at all ranges now and certainly more precise with the dot.

    Probably need to upgrade from the Venom if i stick with it, but that's a task for another day. Still not totally convinced about the durability of the dot for daily carry but I do have the cowitnessed irons just in case.

    Can't carry open around here, at least not in more normal activities.
    Most of my carry is an LCP in pocket. It's a lot harder to carry a properly-sized pistol when you're forced into dress clothes 15 hours a day.
    My favorite gun was a CZ PCR, but my Ruger SR9c carries better for me. Thinner, lighter, and shoots just as well even if the trigger's just slightly less nice.

    A dress shirt slightly bloused (as I find more comfortable) often conceals a big gun, tucked, better than a loose untucked t-shirt for me.

    Add a coat and forget about it, I could carry a 6" Redhawk without anyone noticing.

    I've confused my wife a number of times after church when I take my dress shirt off and she sees the 226 she thought I didn't bring (or 1911, or Glock 19x)

    A suit coat, part of dress clothes and business attire for many

    Sorry, was unclear.

    Jar and Deus are in Florida and Deep South Texas coats probably aren't a thing for them

    Fair point, though when I spent time in Texas folks wore coats in far warmer weather than I ever would in the upper Midwest, including sport costs at the various church services I went to, though I was not quite so deep South in Texas, mostly DFW and San Antonio

    To be honest, we seem to have three groups when it comes to coats. The true second or third generation native put on a Parka when the temperature drops below 70. Those of us who have only lived down here for a few decades try to find a jacket or over-shirt when the temperature drops below 50 and the Winter Texans that are out swimming when it gets over about 45.
