    I carried a Colt Commander .45acp, for a couple years. Then I switched to Ruger Sp101,
    .357 mag, for 8 + years.
    When the Ruger LCR revolvers came out, over a year ago, I bought two, a .38 special and a .357 magnum. I carry the .38 LCR around the house. And when I leave the house, I have the .357 LCR.
    My DSW Sharon has carried any of several small 9mm's over the last dozen years. At present I think she has a Keltec PF9, in her purse.

    Recently hit 60. Depends on the mode of dress. Seecamp .32, S&W 642, or Glock 19.

    Seecamp LWS .380, S&W M&P 340, or once in awhile Kahr PM9.
    I'm working on getting comfortable with a M&P 40c, but not there yet with the holsters.

    I've never seen DSW before but I would bet it stands for Dear Sweet Wife.

    Age 71 and carry what ever stikes my fancy when I get up in the morning. Don't golf, camp, fish, 4 wheel, or ski. Hobby is handguns, period. Wife lets me keep my military reserve retirement check to spend on my hobby although she gets what ever she wants of it. Other three retirement checks go to the family account. 19 J frames, all the Glock 9mm's, Bunch of Sigs & Kahrs, and added an Ed Brown SF last week. Colty DS, and Colt Agent too.

    Just 67 and I carry new model SS Colt DE 10mm, but have a Dan Wesson CBOB 10mm in the pipeline. I also carry a Sig 238 mouse gun (380) quite a bit, needless to say I like my 1911's and have since I shot the first one 50+ years ago.

    I'm 63 and carry either a Kel Tec P11, a Springfield XD 40 SC, or a Charter Arms Bulldog in .44 Special. With a trench coat or thigh length coat on, I can carry my Kel Tec Sub 2000 in .40 S&W. :D

    Ain't 60 yet (three years to go) but I pack Glocks.

    Subcompacts. Glock 26, 27, and 33. And J .38s when it's to hot in Texas to wear anything but shorts and t-shirts.

    Doubt if I'll change with all this fad stuff going on. IDPA rated expert with that 26, IWB, and WW ball ammo.

    Lcp in front pocket, soon to be a db9, My Glock 26 for every day, my Glock 30 if I am going into the City, "Miami, or Ft lauderdale", or a 1911 fullsize, if I feel real good and my back isn't bothering me. I am getting an emp, soon, and will alternate with the glocks, it's a 40. So it may replace both the 9 and 45,i'll have to see how she shoots,and carries.

    I'm closer to 60 than to 56. I carry lots of different firearms depending on dress and or mission. Today it was a 642 ,Yesterday a P-32.Weddings and funerals it's a Seecamp .32.Some days I feel like 007 so I slip a 950BS into my pocket.I used to carry a 1911 almost every day but since I became older and in worse physical shape I substitute a Glock 17 for those occaissions where the 1911 would have been my choice.I carry light weight knives,flashlights,everything. Light weight in every aspect of my EDC life.YMMV.tom.:cool:
