    SIG RCS 1911 in .45 ACP is my daily beater.

    Okay, I voted .22 long rifle just because I felt sorry for it but in reality, it depends on the day. Some days call for one gun chambered in 9mm and other days call for a different gun chambered in .40 caliber. Make and model withheld due to irrelevance, other participants (you know who you are) please take note, it was a caliber question, not brand and model.

    If I was back in a state where I could carry, it would most often be .32 ACP, .38 Special, or 9x19mm. Probably 9x19mm more than anything else, unless I just tossed one of the others in my pocket for a trip to the mailbox.

    Unfortunately, I'm currently in MD. :(

    It is .380 ACP for now until I can get a good holster to carry the 9mm. The .380 carries great in the summer and basically disappears but I plan on it being a hot weather carry or BUG only soon. The .357 mag is for walking in the woods or as a hunting sidearm.

    I seem to have settled on the .40. It must be the gun.

    Depends on the circumstances. Most often, .45 ACP. Frequently, and at this very moment, .357 Magnum. Occasionally, .380 ACP.

    .45 almost always, but lately I've really been digging my .357 magnum.

    Mostly a 9x18 Russian Makarov. Breaking in a new one, a Kel-Tec PF9. Sometimes carry a 357 Magnum King Cobra, usually in cooler weather.

    .40 S&W

    Kahr PM40 and on rare occassion a Glock 27 or converted Glock 33.

    When it's real cold outside and I'm wearing a coat I'll sometimes stick my j-frame S&W 637 or Kahr PM9 in the coat pocket.

    9mm most, .45 ACP second.

    Though I'm planning to switch to 357 SIG or .45 ACP 100% of the time.

    .38 spl. here. Colt "Dick Special" is hard to beat.

    Most of the time .45ACP, though on occasion it'll be .357Mag; especially when out and about on the trails.

    It varies but more often than not it's usually a .380 though I have been thinking about working a couple of rather compact 9mm.'s into the rotation.

    9mm. Does what I need it to do, and I can afford to shoot it often enough.

    No hate, it's a pretty good round.


    I went 45 ACP, as it is my work gun. It would be 38 Special, 9mm, or 45 anyway, because that is what is allowed for off-duty/Back-up carry.
