    I posted this poll 2 years ago and it got brought back up a few days ago. I'm going to recreate it, with a few tweaks, so you can vote in the pole.

    Pick your age and type of firearm you carry the MOST.

    After you vote, post your age and what gun you carry.

    Once this poll runs a while, I will compare the poll from 2011 and see if/how the results have changed.

    I answered for the gun I carry the most, which these days is a XDM 9mm. I do still carry my BHP's in .40 on occasion.

    still a Glock

    I probably missed the poll 2 years ago, but the answer for me is still a Glock22 or 27 (40S&W).

    Hard to say. It depends.

    38 and carry:

    Steel Frame .44 Special
    Alloy Frame .32 H&R Mag J-Frame
    Bersa .380

    I love them all. Sometimes it is hard to choose.

    58 and Illinois does not yet allow concealed carry but it's coming. I'll be carrying my Colt Model M in .32 ACP except when I can conceal larger pieces.

    In that case I'll be carrying a Glock 26, a Colt Officers ACP, or another unknown at this time.

    I'm in the 50+ category and I typically carry either a Kahr PM9 or a KelTec P-3AT.

    Should have had a "both" option. I regularly switch between a Model 36 S&W, Browning High Power and a Walther PP. Just depends on what I'm doing and how I feel on a particular day.

    What has become my one constant is a NAA Black Widow in .22 Magnum. Carries like a pocket knife and gets carried daily in addition to or lack of anything else.

    I need more than one option...age 43, I carry different sidearms depending on what I am doing. Everyday-urban carry is LCP. Woods/out of town carry is SR1911 or SP101.

    Respectfully, I' like to see the next poll separate the 50's, 60's, 70's etc

    33, carry a Taurus 709 slim most of the time, so I voted for modern plastic. Still sometimes carry an alloy frame semi auto as well.
