Currently my S&W CSX is my go-to EDC. . .and my Micro 9 Rapide playing backup.
With 145grn GT HP's loaded with 6.5grn of Universal. Under 1100fps, shoots to POA and is easily controllable in this 24oz Ruger.
I have other choices, but this is what I almost always grab.
Bought it from a guy at a gun show years ago.
I believe he was just doing it part time.
Has held up surprisingly well.
My deep cover backup is a Kel-Tec P-32 with Fiocchi 60gr SJHP ammo. (not the Shooting Dynamics line)
I recently bought a Sig 365 XL with Sig Zero Optic. I am trying to like it but I can't seem to shoot it as well as the Glock so sticking with the G43X for now. Time and more rounds will tell if it replaces the Glock.
Not pretty but functional and comfortable.
Kind of like the G45 version of a G26.
I have never been able to competently shoot small micro whatever 9's. I also don't like polymer guns. I also much prefer DA when carrying IWB.
However, I recently purchased a Kahr K9. All steel, DAO, and a peach to shoot. Also the increase from 6 to 9 is substantial, and after that any advantage gained in capacity for me is lost with having to go with guns I don't care for. As soon as I find the right holster for my Kahr I will probably start mixing it in and could see it become my EDC relatively quickly.
I carry my LCP the most during the summer while I am wearing shorts.
I used to carry my P32 every day at work because flashing was not an option. I work from home now so the P32 does not get as much carry time as it used to.
Every once in a while I will carry the NAA .22wmr. It is nice to have a super lite super compact carry piece at times.
I NEVER leave the house without a pistol because I always have a gun that will fit into what ever pocket I have on me at the time. Being able to grab a gun and shove it in my pocket on the way out the door is why I have a gun on me at all times when I am not at home. It takes no planning, no special dressing, just shove it in my pocket and go. If I am going to the big city I will usually carry my XDS for the extra power of the .45acp and have to make a conscious effort to dress for IWB carry.
