    In warm weather, it's the Springfield Armory XDs in .45. In cooler weather, it's a full size 1911 in .45.

    I have a GP-100 4" in .357 mag stashed in the truck.

    I love the .40, it's my favorite and it's what I carry.

    I made the mistake of shooting one of my 1911s.

    So now my .45 ACP VBob is back in my holster.

    I voted .357 Magnum, as the question asked for the caliber of my EDC, not what ammo I carry in it. My daily carry ammo is Underwood brand 38 special +P, 158Gr. hard cast SWC. It's rated at 1200 FPS and 550 FP.

    Prefer (and voted for) .45ACP. Carried in a S&W M&Pc. But the 442 in .38+P does see quite a bit of pocket time also. Couple others here and there, in different calibers.

    That’s easy, other than a 1903 Pocket Hammerless, all my pistols are 9mm.

    You said pistol, not handgun? Words matter.

    "For some reason my daughter threw away my Speedo so the .22mag doesn't get much carry time anymore."

    I just threw all my used guns in the trash.

    Left jeans front pocket = Smith 640-3 in .357, right front jeans pocket = same thing...they have no equal.

    It used to be 45ACP Glock 30 for me and 40S&W Glock 27 for wife.

    Then Glock 30 got replaced with Taurus MilPro P145 because wife did not like the fat grip.

    Then I switched to Glock 23 and wife added 380Auto Taurus TCP.

    Now it's mix of Glock 23/27, 9mm Shield and Taurus TCP for us.

    I voted 40S&W - A far from dead caliber and we practice with 9mm using 40-9 conversion barrels. :D

    9mm hands down. Mostly in a Glock 17 or 17L, occasionally one of my Springfield Range Officers, and used to be an Astra A100. My wife won’t let me carry her Ruger SR9C. :(

    Just about always a 45 ACP

    I have also been known to carry a little 2" S&W Model 10 but generally it's the above 45 ACP.

    Don't have a favorite caliber. Moved to where I don't need one. But I find it strange that the more
    an area of the country is like Beirut, the more draconian the gun control laws are there.

    Not strange. The crooks in city hall protect the crooks on the street.

    I carry a 9mm for EDC but also a LCR in .22 WMR for a NY reload. Two is one, one is none as gunny often stated.
