Since the time this thread was started, I've been through 4 CC guns; a S&W 442, S&W 49, Kel-Tec P11 and my current CCW, a Kel-Tec PF9.

I'm considering waxing my M49 to fight rust and carry it for a work gun, since I can load with shot for snakes. My work often takes me into overgrown areas.

I suppose most will think I'm nuts but I carry what my dad used as his off duty weapon years ago as a LEO.....a cut-off S&W 38SW Lemon Squeezer. Its small and easily concealable and pretty safe to carry in a pocket holster with 5 in the cylinder.

what do you carry concealed ?

I have a 3 gun rotation:

S&W 642
Kel-Tec PF-9
Kel-Tec P3AT

Which one I carry depends on what I'm wearing, where I'm going and what the weather's like.

Depending on what I'm wearing, and how long I will be out for, I either carry a Para Ordnance Warthog, or an XD9SC. But once I put a lasermax guide rod laser in my XD, I have a feeling the Para won't be coming out as much.

On my right hip I carry a SA XD40 compact,on the left side of the small of my back I carry a S&W 640-3 magnum and on my right ankle I have a Raven .25 auto. Aside from the guns I also carry a one hand openin' tactical boot knife and a razor edge gutting Buck knife on my belt. To top it all off I also carry a pair of brass knukkles and wear steel toed boots. Some might say its "overkill",I call it being prepared for almost any situation I might be confronted with. Yes it takes a bit of time to get all that gear together and put on,but I'd rather have it and not need it then need it and not have it.

S&W 638 with Hornady Critical Defense 38 special loads. Seems like a good defensive round without the additional recoil.

KelTec PF9

Taurus M85SSUL. I've carried many other guns over the years and eventually settled on this one. Plus a speed strip in my back pocket.

Generally, P-64 in 9mm Mak. If I am irresponsible enough to use up all my ammo plinking and don't have the time to go buy some more, I either go with a pocket .22 or if am not gonna be out long, then nothing at all.

Glock 22 IWB
Glock 27 mostly on ankle, or cargo pocket, front pant pocket, smart carry, or IWB. Seems like everything but fanny pack carry, the wife vetos that for fashion reasons.

Sometimes
S&W 649 In pocket
NAA 22LR
