    For me the question was answered after about 6 months of day to day carry.

    I carried a G23 for months and while it still carry it on Sundays I realized it was just a bit heavy for day to day.

    now I’m over a year of daily carry with a Shield9 and I believe this was the right choice for me.

    I forgot to tell you that most of the time I carry a Glock 19 around town. Other times I carry a Ruger LC9, S&W Shield (9 mm or .45 caliber depending on my mood and goals) or a Springfield Armory XDS in 9 mm. Sometimes I like flat and thin but most of the time the G-19 fills my gun requirements of the day.

    This is an interesting thread in that the overwhelming majority of folks favor Glocks for CCW. I personally don't care for striker fired handguns which is odd considering all but two of my rifles and shotguns are striker fired but I could never warm up to them in a handgun.
    Had just about everything else at one time or another but I keep coming back to the 1911 platform. Probably because if you shoot something for 45 years you get comfortable with it and shoot it better than anything else. The two exceptions are Sigs and CZ's and I really like my PCR.
    Currently my choice is either a Bobtail Valor in .45ACP or a .38 Super Guardian.
    The Valor is more comforting while the Guardian is more comfortable.;)
