Awaiting the arrival of my NAA Guardian 380. Probably get some Federal Hydra Shock or some Cor-Bon in a 90gr JHP. Small frame, easy con conceal, fits my hand nice. 6 or 7 shot. Stainless steel should hold up well to sweat.

The last couple of weeks, I've been carrying a S&W M&P45c in a red stingray tuckable, custom made by Michael:

It wears comfortably all day long and it disappears even under a tucked-in t-shirt! I've got a matching, tuckable 2-mag carrier for the weak side, but I need to get some slightly bigger pants to wear it!

I have a little cimaron .22 mag knuckle duster that i carry in my pocket.

Go ahead and laugh....but I'm pretty darn good with it. And I would not advise any one who's not VERY proficient with one to rely on a 2-shot weapon when it counts.

It's mostly to buy me time to get to my truck where I keep the heavy hardware.

l've heard police work is dangerous. Yes, that's why l carry a big gun. Couldn't it go off accidentally? l used to have that problem. What did you do about it?

When I held that gun in my hand, I felt a surge of power - like God must feel when he's holding a gun.

I currently carry a PPK/S at 4 o'clock outside the waistband. In the next month or so I plan to purchase a Glock 26 and get and IWB holster for that to ride in.

Depends on the weather:

Could be a light snubbie like the LCR in my pocket today, could be a Glock 36.

Some days that I wear and overshirt, I'll pack an 8" 1858 Remington cap and ball in a shoulder hoslter

I can't remember if I responded to this thread. I don't carry concealed although I have a couple of choices to do so. The reason I don't is because I feel uncomfortable carrying a gun concealed. This is not to say I never do as I have on occasion when I have had to go places where carrying is just a better decision.
When it is a "better decision" I prefer the very very discreet concealed carry, and go down in caliber and size to either one of these:

Manurhin .32 ACP

Colt Cobra .32 New Police

If I had to regularly carry concealed it'd be the Browning Hi Power

Seriously? You must have one of the few that work. Congrats.

I am the weapon; my gun is a tool. It's regrettable that with some people those descriptors are reversed.

Currently carry a Glock 26, however a recent self defense shooting in my area had me really rethinking what caliber I want to carry.

Long story short, there was a shootout between a robber and store clerk. Robber was hit twice and still managed to continue firing shots at the clerk. Robber ran out of ammo, ran across the street and collapsed in a fast food restaurant parking lot. Robber survived and last time they showed him on the news was mostly fine.

Robber was hit twice....twice man. Mind you I don't know what ammo was used but that really got me thinking. God forbid I ever actually have to use mine for self defense. Should I ever be in that situation, I guess I would be more comfortable with something that would end the situation immediately rather than a shootout like that. I know shot placement is critical, heck a 22lr could work as a SD pistol if the shot was well placed.

After much internal debating and range time spent shooting 4x4 boards, assorted fruit and 2 liters filled with water (sometimes ice) I bought a Glock 29. Just waiting on the holster to arrive and then get some range time in practicing drawing and firing.

Most of the time I carry an SP101 DAO 2.25" barrel.

Recently I have also started carrying a .38 special derringer as a deep conceal BUG just to try it out.

Most recent choice?

I have carried a Taurus .45 auto, a CZ 9mm Rami, a Beretta .380 auto, a S&W .38 360 revolver, and my most recent choice is a Walther PPS .40 caliber. Have spent a small fortune on holsters for all of them! Each time I think I have the "perfect" weapon. The Walther is the best choice for now, until something else comes along. Maybe a Kel Tec in an ankle holster for a backup gun?

I guess so because I have had this one for 15 years and probably have shot somewhere between 3000-4000 rounds through it and has never jammed even once. A few "did not fires" which is not uncommon with rim fire ammo especially if its old and thats it.
Plus it's a tack driver to boot.
This pistol has been perfect, light weight, thin, accurate.

Soon to be a .32M single six (yes, that's a SA) but I may pick up a smallish .32M/.327/.38SP DA at some point in the future. 50/50 chance or so.

In the end, shot placement is king, penetration is queen and "stopping power" is the court jester. Everything else is one man's opinion.
