Depends on my mood/attire

Kimber Ultra Carry II (when I feel like some heavy metal)
S&W Shield 40 (my primary carry)
Ruger LCP (when I am wearing shorts and tshirt)

I carry a Beretta 9000s, .40 cal., DAO, in a smart carry holster located not in the abdomen area, but on the right hip, fully concealed inside my slacks or, on more casual dress days, inside my overalls, (this is Tennessee, after all). When wearing slacks, I wear suspenders and a loose fitting belt, so there is plenty of room to reach in and get the pistol. When wearing overalls, access is even more free. Since this would not be true whilst sitting in the truck, I also have a Sig .45 nightmare that I carry either loose in the truck or in a gun pocket in a leather bomber jacket (Burk's Bay). The jacket came with a funky little velcro strap which I replaced with a holster from my 511 vest. The Beretta, being DAO, has no protruding hammer to snag, no safety to release, just pull the pistol, acquire the target, etc. BTW, I've seen many negative comments about the 9000s, but I've had no problems, owned it for 2-3 years, fired several hundred rounds, no ftf or other such f-ups. The grip fits my hand fine, clips have pinky rest, no prob. The smart carry holster softens the lines of the pistol, so no print through except for the butt, which is hidden by the belt area. No cover jacket or loose shirt needed. Can even use this set-up with shorts. Since I'm a 5'11" 300 pounder, this is the best carry solution I've found. comfortable.

I've never had an issue with it. I'm a big guy with big pockets. I carry in my front right pocket. It peeks out a little but my shirts always cover and it's never been noticed. My wife can't tell which pocket it's in and she knows to look. No luck needed but thanks.

Yes, I'm serious...In a mernickle PS6-SA.
I would have no problem at all carrying a SA pistol. And I have.

I think cocking the thing should take no more time/effort than releasing the safety of a 1911. I know guys who carry 1911s with hammer down. I think the cowboy gun would be a LOT faster than those guys. And probably much safer.

I meant the fact it's a Glock and a Gen 4. Double whammy!

Ah I see. Someone bought a pre September 2011 gen 4 and had issues. Well mine is't and it runs like a top. Thanks for the concern though.

It varies between three. An M&P 9c, an XD 40 compact, and a Kahr PM9.

The Kahr definitely gets the nod in a pocket holster in the inside pocket of cargo shorts in the summer.

In light of the recent loss of my father I have decided to carry any gun that meets the standard. No more safe queens, what's the point of owning if you cant use it? The only exception being my fathers luger, which wont be carried because it was his safe queen.

So for the moment my primary carry is 45 ACP XD Tactical upgraded to 460 Rowland. This was a safe queen based on my investment of time and money into it. My P220 Carry (45 ACP) is a permanent favorite but just cant match the raw power of the 460. Finally my P290 (9mm) is used for those business occasions that make it hard to carry either of the other two, also great when its time to do any kind of distance walking or use in hot weather.

I've got your six if you ever want to talk about it brother.

That's .460 rowland conversion you showed me? Out of control!

That's the conversion C

Thanks I sent you a message... I think the first one got lost in the Ethernet, but then again you might get two messages..

The 460 does rock!

HK P2000SK 9MM, M&P9C 9MM, or a S&W 642. All three in old faithful holsters or a remora for the j frame, quick trips to the grocery story.
