    Semi-geezerhood, usually a Smith 29 or Ruger SA 45. My use is vastly more rural to actual wild country than anything else,

    27, and carry only modern, polymer, semi-autos. I prefer these for carry for my own reasons. Although, modern steel/alloys are the best looking IMO, and I'd like to get one someday.

    I'm 20 years old and I swap between a CZ75B and a 4" Smith and Wesson 586, however I have been carrying the CZ far more than the Smith and Wesson due to the lack of a quality holster. These two I carry year round concealed.

    54 years old and mostly carry a Glock 26 Gen 3, with the occasional J-Frame S&W Model 60 thrown in.

    I was surprised that (as of the time of this post) I fell into the largest category.

    Double post-please delete.

    54 and in the poll voted I carry a revolver since you can only vote for one option. I carry a 75 model Colt Cobra, 76 model Colt DS, CZ 83 or CZ 82 depending on how I feel when I get up in the morning.

    I like to see all the older members we have on here. Are any of you guys 80 or over?

    Results are a surprise. I figured all you old fogeys were still carrying 5 shot revolvers.

    55. Was carrying a S&W 1006 stainless 10mm, but am switching to a Glock 30S .45 (voted as a polymer carrier). I too am surprised I fell in the largest group. Who'd have thought....
