    Glock 26 with two spare G17 mags.

    I'd like to carry something lighter/slimmer, but, my brain won't let me leave the house with a low round count. The days of a one, or two, bad guy EDC gun are long gone.

    98% of the time, I've got my browning hipower, with a spare mag.
    The other 2%, it's a sig p238, with 2 spare mags.

    I practice a lot with both.

    I don't know how some of y'all do it; alternating between pistols with different styles of controls.

    LCP II with a CT laser. Huge improvement over the open sights so I'm good for skunks as well as smelly two legged varmints.

    Most of the time, HK P2000 (V1 light LEM) in 357Sig (spare .40 barrel), reworked by Lazy Wolf Guns and plated in Robar NP3+:

    When I can't conceal that, Walther PPS M1 9mm:

    Typically, my usual retirement CCW pocket-holster choices are one of my several J-frames or one of my LCP's.

    For those times when a larger belt gun choice seems prudent, it'll be one of my smallish 9's, .40's or .45's.

    With the exception of the LCP's, which I didn't pick up until a couple years after I retired, I'm mostly carrying the same guns for retirement CCW as I did for off-duty.

    LCR .357 pocket or OWB for simple excursions, M&P .45 Shield OWB for mall/major public outings. Usually one extra speed strip or magazine for whichever.

    I do not “rotate.” I do train to use three systems, which are sufficiently different that I will not confuse them; each is instantly recognizable at first touch.

    I am about to enter a transition period, so what is true today may not be true when I am busy being grandpa, as Grandson #2 is due in late December, and I will be using much accumulated leave before and after that time, and my retire from LEO-ing in early 2018. For reference, Texas had no general concealed-carry for private citizens until the Nineties, so I started carrying handguns during personal time only after being sworn-in as a police officer in March 1983. I have carried daily, quite consistently, since that time.

    My newest handgun system is 9mm Gen4 Glocks. Forty to fifty hours a week, I am likely to be wearing my duty rig with the holster and mag pouches for Glocks. The Safariland 6360 holster will accomodate my G34, G17, and G19 pistols. A G26 is my hide-out gun. Simple convenience means that I am likely to tote a G19 or G17 during personal time. The draw-back is that I am just not as accurate with Glocks, as with my other two systems, at extended range.

    My oldest handgun system is the 1911, starting in 1982 or 1983, though I did not regularly carry a 1911 until 1990, and there have been gaps in my 1911 ownership. My two current 911 pistols are Les Baer, full-sized 5” models, acquired in 2000 and 2016. I have a duty rig set-up for the 1911, but it does not work so well inside our newest, smaller patrol vehicles. Several times a week, a 1911 may well be in my concealment holster, during personal time.

    My second system, in order of acquisition, is the broad category of DA revolvers, made by S&W and Ruger. I bought my first S&W revolvers in 1983, the year I started attending a police academy, and I have never been without 2+ S&W revolvers since that time, though, regrettably, I no longer have my earlierst ones. I added a Ruger GP100 about 1990 or 1991, and have really loved Rugers since that time. I am likely to carry a Ruger SP101 when working in the yard or carport, and therefore not wearing a normal holster. I recently added a Kramer IWB rig for my newest revolver, a Wiley Clapp edition of the GP100. I may well increase the carry hours of my revolvers after I retire, especially the ones with spur-less hammers, which may be a best practice when carrying toddler and infant grandsons much of the time.

    I carry a Ruger LCR .327 FM 90% of the time. Every now and then I grab my Sig P938.

    I usually carry my RM380 and an extra mag during warm weather. When it's gets cooler and I'm wearing a coat, I switch to a Glock 43. Occasionally I'll throw a Beretta 21 loaded with Stingers into my pocket if Im running a quick errand.

    Kahr CM9 in a Galco Pocket Protector. I haven't carried anything different in about a year.

    Retired LEO and I carry a Sig 290rs most all the time. I carried a model 36 off duty for years and would still consider it a good gun to get our of a close in scrap.

    LC 9s with a spare. I've become more proficient with it than I ever thought I'd be.

    With cooler weather coming I recently added a Springfield 3" EMP 1911 in 9 mm. My warm weather T shirt and shorts EDC is usually a S&W 637 but I plan on replacing the five shot Smith with my new to me 6 shot Colt Detective Special. Need new grips and a little more trigger time before I do.

    Original version LCP mostly in these last few days of warm weather. For a revolver, a late Interarms Rossi 68 with IWB carry. As cold weather approaches, I'm thinking about my fine recent FNS 40c because my heavier clothing will conceal a bigger holster better. Or if I decide to go 9mm, either a Ruger LC9 (with the original long trigger pull) or a Taurus PT111 G2.

    G23, I've pretty much abandoned my LCP that was the EDC for 8 years.

    Having owned one briefly I can tell you that the only good thing about LCP is the ability to hide it just about anywhere on the clothed body. In every other way it basically sucks.
