Depends on what clothing I'm wearing. I prefer to carry as much gun as I can effectively conceal. For hot weather carry...my S&W Airweight with Crimson trace grips fits nicely IWB at 2 O'clock position. It's also prefered in low light conditions with the laser. With a long T-shirt (untucked), I'll carry my Kahr CW-9 IWB at the 5 O'clock position (butt up). In cooler weather with a long T-shirt (untucked) and a long flannel shirt (unbuttoned) or an unzippered hooded sweatshirt....I'll carry my XD45 in a Blackhawk Serpa crossdraw. My point is that lots of different gun/holster combos can be used for CCW but you have to factor in the clothing that you're wearing and your body shape. If you have a bit of a gut it's easier to conceal in front cause your shirts will hang out further. If you have a thick back and a round butt (don't giggle) it's easier to conceal in the back. If you're stick skinny you better wear some baggy clothes.

I like the semi for EDC but in cold weather I will probably have both with me.
Revolver in jacket pocket and semi IWB.

I carry what I shoot best, and that is a semi auto. Often it is a single stack, semi-compact 9MM, holding nine rounds, so I'm fine with relatively lower capacity.

Revolvers tend to come in much more "interesting" calibers.

I changed from revolver to pistol a while back for capacity. Between misses, the need for multiple hits to effect a stop, and what seems to be a trend towards multiple attackers, I convinced myself that I should have more than 5 rounds before reloading.

Or else I rationalized the purchase of a new handgun.
