I carry a Glock on a day to day basis because it fits my needs in a concealed carry piece.
I carried a Beretta in the Guard because I had too.
If I could chose a gun to carry if I were going to war again it would be Pop's Model 66.
The one time I used my pistol in combat, I fired it less than six times, it probably would have been less than that if I were to use something other than 9x19 NATO.
