Before this I use to carry a Kahr CM9, along with a pair of S&W J frames: a Model 649 and a Model 638, for EDC. Had DeSantis SOF-TUCK holsters for all of them.
Springfield Armory 1911 in .45ACP for every day carry. Nickle Colt Combat Commander .45ACP as a backup.
When hiking or hunting, any of a couple or three dozen SA or DA revolvers in. 357Magnum, .41Magnum, .45Colt, .44Magnum, .44Special, .45AutoRim, .357Maximum and .375SuperMag.
Very rarely carry my .22LR/.22Mag, .38Spl, 9mm, 10mm or .40S&W handguns although I do keep the high capacity M&P40 in .40S&W in my vehicle on the rare occasions that I venture into the urban war zone where the drug gangs have gun battles seemingly every day according to the news reports. I haven't been into the county seat urban area for five years...
unless i’m way outdoors my ccw must be totally unseen for social reasons, the p32 is slim and compact but with a grip sleeve quite comfortable. i can shoot the p32 rather well. with various fmj ball ammo it’s been 100% reliable. for my humble suburban needs, consistently on-target 32acp is certainly useful.
otherwise revolvers rule. at a beach or while jogging a naa bugout1 22lr; on a hiking path or long distance drive a s&w 642 38sp loaded with wadcutters.
BUG is my KelTec PF9 in 9mm
The black one is my carry gun, the tan is back-up/range/dry fire
That day, she was amazed to discover that when he was saying "As you wish," what he meant was, "I love you." And even more amazing was the day she realized she truly loved him back.
I wondered if anyone else thought of "The Princess Bride" reading his post!
Haven't gone a day without it in years.
Backup? Well I've got some options, but this plan A.
The 43 is If I'm going to the gym
The 19 is If I'm out running errands AND I'm not going to have to disarm to go in somewhere (VA).
ETA they're all 4th generation If that's relevant
semi - 42 (84%)
revolver - 8 (16%)
On par with what I would have predicted.
It wasn't until ten round QUALITY micros starting rolling in that I switched. Before that - once the law allowed choice in a CCW instead of a specific weapon - I carried either a S&W Model 60 .357 or the SP101. But twenty rounds of +P 9mm in the Sig P365 including a spare mag was a powerful incentive to come over to the "Dark Side " as it were lol.
I do not “rotate,” as a matter of practice. Occasionally, the SP101 that I carry will not be that first one, with a spurless hammer, perhaps because I want a hammer spur, for retention in a particular holster, or, I may just decide that a 3” SP101 is a better choice for a particular environment. Or, I may just happen to grab my second or third 2.25” spurless-hammer SP101, for whatever reason. (The third has been prettied-up, a bit, so, I like to minimize wear and tear.) But, usually, my first spur-less SP101 is THE foundation of a day’s carry, whether or not I am also carrying a second gun.
