    The poll needs to allow for more than one answer :D

    It depends: Frequently I carry either a J-frame .38 or a Bersa .380. I like them because they are small enough to conceal on most items of summer clothing I own, and they are lightweight. Health issues make it sometimes very uncomfortable to carry anything heavier on my waist.

    However, my favorite, the one that sits on my bedside table at night, is my Kimber Ultra Carry II. The child who inherits that one knows I love him/her best :neener::neener::neener: But there are times that I just can't carry it.

    When on the bike, my 642 is at home in the inside vest pocket. If I want to ride with the shirt tail out, the M&P 40c is in a Kramer owb holster. Colder weather finds me with the Stoeger Cougar 9mm in a shoulder rig with the 642 in the jacket pocket. Sometime, if I really wanna be tacti-cool, I'll try all three but I'm sure I'd feel like the Michelin man.

    Most of the time it's a S&W J-frame Airweight .38 spl in the front pocket. But I plan on putting the Seecamp LWS32 into more use once I get it back. Every once in a while I use a NAA Pug 22mag as well.

    I usually have either my Glock 27 or my Springfield Ultra Compact .45, but I did just buy a Ruger SP101 .357 that will be getting a lot of belt time as soon as I can get a good holster for it.The glock is my duty bug so it is the most carried.:cool:

    cant really vote, depends on weather for me.

    hot weather or when dressing up its a Kel-Tec PF9 loaded with TAP FPD ammo, colder (well now that i got great holster all the time) weather my S&W Sigma 40VE Allied Forces with Ranger JHP's, or my Rossi M461 .357mag snubbie w/ federal 158grain JHP's.

    really comes down to what will be conferable for what ill be doing that day.

    Completely depends on the situation. When I can conceal it effectively I carrie my Dan Wesson CBOB 1911 either in a high ride thumb break holster or a Bianchi bag. In warmer weather when I'm wearing lighter clothing, I carry my Sig 232 in either a Bianchi #3 IWB holster or in a Bianchi bag.

    I tend to rotate through the three, carrying the Rami most often.

    A multi-selection poll would have been better, because I carry subcompacts, compacts and full-size guns depending on the situation.

    My regular all-the-time carry is a five-inch 1911. My back-ups (second guns) are a Baer Stinger, a three-inch SP-101, and a two-inch J-frame. I always have the 1911, and I add the other guns as and when needed.

    Glock 26 or a KelTec P32. The latter is not used too often, but still does the job by going bang every time.

    While the laws of physics dictate that bigger is better when it comes to ballistic projectiles, I believe that smaller calibers like the 9mm are "good enough". I mean sure, you could kill a fly by dropping a 2000 ton bolder on it, or you can just use a fly swatter.
