    It can vary but typically I go with either a S&W Model 638 or a Kahr CM9. Other variations I might go with would be a KelTec P3AT and a SIG P238.

    I'm back to revolvers, I've carried almost everything, 1911's, which are still my favorite range/competition pistol, Glocks, great guns, I just don't like the things. I went with the mindset to be ready for anything, service pistol with at least one spare mag, back up gun, tactical folder, flashlight etc. I now think this is over the top, for me anyway, the type of situation that much equipment calls for is thankfully extremely rare. I now carry a S&W mod 64 .38 with a 2" barrel, a speed strip of extra ammo, a P3AT, because there is no reason not to carry it, a flashlight, and a small swiss army knife, with the last two items used almost daily, and the others, never. I like the revolver as a primary because, it is about as reliable as a machine can be, it requires almost no maintenance, and it is as simple to use as a gun can be. If the time comes when I think I might need more than this, I'll keep my AR handy.

    At work I carry a Glock 22, I don't really get a choice on that though. In my personal life I carry a Glock 23. It's smaller but the format is familiar so the muscle memory is there. If my attire doesn't allow the G23, I will carry my sp101 in my back or occasionally my Walther.

    When it's hot, a 9mm Shield. When it's cold, a 1911 or G26/30/36.

    Walthers PPS , I've tried many( Glocks, XDM, Rugers, and S&W)but keep coming back to the PPS. Shoots like a big gun and is easy to carry.

    I carry my issue G22. If ever I have to use it the office will issue me a new one rather than me having to buy my own or wait 10 years for it to come back from evidence.

    A S&W M442 in a pocket holster.
    A Gerber light weight folding knife.
    A small flashlight on my keys.

    Sometimes a Kel-Tec P-32 when something very small is needed...

    Phone, keys, wallet, mints, Oakley Pitbulls, Leatherman Style CS (on keychain), Leatherman Blast, Streamlight Microstream, Streamlight Nano (on keychain), Benchmade Adamas or Bone Collector branded Benchmade, earbuds, Zippo, and gun.

    Without a jacket, it's a G26 gen 4 in either a N82 Pro IWB holster or plain old Glock OWB holster (concealed). With a jacket, it's G21 gen 4 in the same N82 Pro, or the same Glock OWB holster (also concealed). I also carry a spare 17 mag for the 26, or a spare 21 mag for the 21, both in Glock mag holders.

    Generally a Kel-Tec PF9, sometimes a Russian Makarov.

    Occasionally in the cooler months I will carry my King Cobra, usually if I expect to head to the outdoors during the course of the day.

    Also a small pocketknife and a single cell led flashlight, nothing expensive or flashy.

    As a german native, I'm not allowed to CC. Otherwise it would probably be a S&W Shield. Or a Walther PPS.

    As it is right right now, I'm switching between formidable knife-maker's Jürgen Schanz Schanz-Anduranz and the versatile Ka-Bar LE TDI.

    My job requires me take my gun off and on a lot if it cannot be carried in a pocket. I have since switched to a three gun set up:

    I keep my beloved sp101 in my desk drawer and my 92fs in my truck. I recently switched from an LCP to the M&P .380 Bodyguard as my always gun. I shoot it better and it feels a little more solid in hand. On top of that I like that it feeds even cheap Tula ammo and has second strike capability.

    I prefer a larger gun, but a good mouse gun is all I can usually carry.

    In the summer I carry LCP and Kahr PM9, but in the Winter I often carry my Colt Magnum carry.

    M&P 9C in a White Hat Max Tuck. If I'm wanting something a little lighter I have a S&W 637 in a De Santis IWB holster.

    I don't carry any extra ammo.

    My knife choice is a Benchmade Griptilian.

    I normally live "in the woods" on my farm in rural Alabama but family circumstances have made me move into town for a while so things have changed.
    Around the farm I carry a pocket gun in the summer and, based on the expected activity for the day, I will carry a revolver on my hip. The pocket gun is for SD and the revolver is for snakes and such. I have several pocket guns and switch out between a PF9, DB9, Bodyguard and occasionally the P3AT. On occasion I carry the PMR 30 for giggles.
    In town I almost always carry the PF9 or DB9 in the pocket. When it is cool enough that I wear jeans all the time then I will sometimes go to an IWB with a Shield as well.

    Currently a Taurus M85SSUL in the right pocket with a NAA .22LR 1 5/8" mini in a folding grip in my left pocket. When I go somewhere other than the little town of 2500 20 miles away, I put on a belt holster and carry a Taurus 605 Poly on the hip loaded with 140 grain .357 magnum. Spare ammo. 38+P is carried in a speed strip.

    I have other EDCs, but since moving out here in the middle of nowhere, I've reverted back to my revolvers and my autos languish in the safe. :D
