...Oh and mine is currently the Kel-Tec 3AT .380, some say not powerful enough for a CCW, but I am not sure. Anyway the post is about what your CCW is.... thx.

Two that I carry most often:

Ruger P345 in .45ACP






NAA Guardian in .32NAA



During the Summer I carry the P345 at times when I can untuck my shirt and look halfway normal. Other times I just slip the .32NAA in the pocket holster and leave the .45 in the truck. You know how they say that your handgun is so you can fight your way to your long gun? Well my mousegun is so I can fight my way to my handgun . I have a P89 and P90 that get more carry time in the cooler months, but occasionally I'll feel froggy and carry one of them in the summer.

Well, rantingredneck, you are a Ruger fan, so am I. My first handgun was the Ruger P95 in 9mm. I love that gun.

Taurus PT145 or Makarov. I have a Kel-Tec P3AT also that I'd like to carry as a BUG, but it is unreliable.

I am most definitely a Ruger fan.

Presently own:

P345
P89 (first handgun)
P90
MKIII 22/45 5.5 inch Target
PC9 Carbine
10/22 Carbine


I have never owned a P95 but it is on my want list as is a GP100.

Yes the P95 is a great handgun, I love the all polymer grip. Good choice if I do say so myself. By a couple of them. -JN

Lately it has been my .380acp Seecamp LWS380 since it is easy to put in my back pocket in a wallet holster.

When I go to the gym I have a S&W 642 in a fanny pack holster.

When the weather is cooler and I wear a bit more clothes I have a few I alternate between. They are...

.380acp NAA Guardian
.380acp PPK
.357mag S&W m60
.40S&W Kahr MK40 Elite
.45acp Para Ordnance SlimHawg

...and I just ordered a 9mm Rohrbaugh R9s the other day.

.357 SP-101, soon to add a 9mm P239 Two-tone DAK. That way I can go to my safe each morning and say, "Hm... what looks good today."

I usually carry my Ruger P89 9mm, but it has a vacation right now so I can get comfy with my new PT1911.

Very sharp looking carry piece you have there.

I always think that people who slam Taurus have obviously never shot one of those. Those guns are awesome.
