    -For EDC concealed, I started on a RIA Compact .45 It was too heavy.
    -I like carrying revolvers sometimes, got a Smith 637.
    -So I switched from the RIA to a Kimber Ultra Raptor. Better weight, and I could use the same holster.
    -Springfield released the XD-S, I tried one and liked it. Once I started carrying it, I realized that metal autos were for the range. I haven't carried one since.
    -Bought an LCP, it is still my pocket carry gun.
    -I tried out a Taurus 85UL. Essentially it was a close match to the 637 that shot better and the Smith's finish was delicate, so it was getting trashed (paint, really?). Eventually I shelved the Smith and only carry the Taurus.
    -Since the LCP was nice, I bought an LC9S. Carried it for a bit, but the XD-S was about the same round count, and I prefer .45. It got shelved.
    -PSA put the PT111 on sale, I figured I would try them out, not sure about carrying a Taurus semi. After many rounds, I changed my mind. I still carry it.
    -I bought a Shield 45 for fun while they had the rebate going. It outshot the XD-S for me on the first range trip. XD-S was removed from rotation.

    So now the carry rotation is:
    -Shield 45 for normal carry.
    -Taurus PT111 if I decide I want 12 rounds and a 17-round reload
    -LCP for pocket carry
    -Taurus 85 when I am wearing lighter clothes. It just vanishes IWB.

    Unless I had brain fade...Jack B. (post #97) is the only one that listed one gun as his carry.

    Got a PF9 and carried that
    Decided to get an XDs45 and carry that when I'm not wearing dress clothes or want a light gun
    When dressed up, I carry the PF9 in a pocket holster

    Currently my 2 regular carry weapons are Walther P99 and PPS.

    Past carries are quite a few from the popular stuff and a few obscure stuff.
    -Ruger P94, SR9c SP101
    -Taurus 327, 738, 709
    -Glock...most models and calibers. Barrels less than 4"
    -AMT backup
    -Springfield XDs and XDMs in the 4" barrel flavors
    -S&W model 64 (I think, hated that gun)

    Probably more I am forgetting.

    Years ago for work, a Model 1917 Smith & Wesson until I was ordered to change that out to a standard issue heavy barrel 10. A Model 15 followed. When our uniform became blazer and slacks, a Colt Agent for a brief time then a Model 64.

    When I operated a business here in rural NM, a Kimber 1911 was my CCW.

    A Ruger Redhawk replaced a Colt New Service for hiking and working in the mountains.
