I carried a .357 for the longest time, and I just switched over to a .40. The .40 seems to be a good neutral ground between 9mm and 45.

What caliber do you carry?

I have a few that I alternate between: Kel-tec P11 9mm, P64 9x18mm, SA Micro Compact .45ACP, and a Taurus model 617 7shot .357 mag.

I carry .357, reasoning being--I am growing older and clumsier, and in the heat of the moment
a revolver is still embeded in my reflexes and thinking process.Also my sweetie carries a
revolver and if I should be put down she can shoot either hers or mine if the crap was still
hitting the fan.Also if I happen to be carrying 38+P in mine, there is ammo available for both
weapons. Make any sense?

Keith, I carried a .40 cal for many a year, I just don't like the trigger bite I got from my G27 and G22. I never tried Rugers so I can't say how they feel. But I now carry a blue .44 2" revolver. This is soon to change to a Ruger SP101, as I like the smallness of it and the fact that it is stainless.

In the summer I wear http://magills.com/pgroup_descrip/311/6920/?return=? which when I worked UC this type of holster worked great for no detection by the BG's. Mine is in white and the nice thing about it is that it has 4 differant possitions of holstering, as well as mag holders etc. I actually carried a small two way, cuffs G27, 4 mags reloads without detection, and I'm not a small guy.

This works quite well with snap shirts :D

Well, I carried a P89 9mm for several years, but my wife has taken it over. So, I bought the P90 .45 and have been carrying it for awhile now. But, I also have the SP101 in .38 and the GP .357 that I would feel perfectly safe in carrying.

I have a K/T 3AT on me all the time and if I leave the house I carry a 1911/.45 S&W sc/41/4" barel. Two 10rd mags on my belt, and a 6rd back up for the K/T in a pocket. I am sure some DA will try and hang me with it but that's the point. I be here to fight and the BG might be wearing a dirt overcoat.

I carry a P90 in a Smartcarry most to the time, but occasionally I'll carry a Rossi R462 with .38 special +P loads.

I don't load for .357 or .38 and most .357 loads are too long to allow the cylinder to turn.

Most always a KP97 .45 but do switch sometimes according whatever is closer to hand or maybe just the way I feel at the time, to a small .38Sp and very occasionally a 9MM.

I think that you are to be commended for thinking so far ahead in keeping not only your life safe,but those around you. I hope those around you realize how lucky they are. Your a good man.

Stainless Springfield 1911 .45 ACP. Carry over from my military experience. Sometimes a Star Firestar in .40.

S&W 637 Chiefs Special Airweight 38+P.

Would prefer something with a lil more capacity, but at 15 oz., I literally forget it is there sometimes, and with a 125 gr JHP traveling at 900+/- FPS, I feel it has adequate power.

I have a smaller Beretta Tomcat .32, but I feel the .32 ACP is only slightly superior to pepper spray in it's stopping power, and it isn't really any thinner, or lighter than the Smithy.

:D Evidently the muse is upon me today. Somewhere in this forum I have already stated my daily carry piece(s) but I dont mind repeating myself.

95% of the time a stainless Colt Officers ACP in .45 acp rides on my hip in a el cheapo but very effective, for me, Uncle Mikes ISW holster.

The rest of the time yet another stainless Colt, this time a Combat Commander in .45 acp (duh) had that honor.;)
