Let's see your daily CCW setup

I thought it would be interesting to start a thread showing what people carry for defense.

Here is my setup- XDs .45 with night sights, CT Laserguard, five round mag with one in the chamber, and two 7 round spare mags, along with a Streamlight ProTac 1L. In the colder months, I carry IWB, and in the warmer months I carry in a pocket holster.

This is what I carry most of the time. Colt New Agent 1911 in a Tagua OWB leather holster. My other carry gun, is a Ruger LCP. I carry that either in a pocket or inside my waistband with its pocket clip.

This is what I've been carrying lately. I love my 1911, but this is lighter, and if this gets knocked around it doesn't hurt my feelings as bad.

Here it is on me...

Glock 19 Gen 4 with XS Big Dot sights in a Galco King Tuk holster, using a BladeTech Looper gun belt.

There is a lot not visible in the pic, but this seems focused on the firearm, so I'll stay there.

Right now I have the 7-round extended magazine in her.

Can't see it, it's concealed. Just kidding.

Smith and Wesson Model 38, Herrett grips.



Simply dropped in a pocket.

I don't have a setup. I simply grab a pistol (seldom a revolver) out of the rack. I will tuck it in my pants sometimes in a belly band/holster or throw it in the glove box of the car or boat.

I decide upon which one based upon the scenario. There are a lot of bible toters around me and very few bad folks.

There are some places I sure would hate to live in. I have been there and done that.

Rbid, does that holster loo through the belt, or clip?

Taurus 651 .357, with an IWB VersaCarry holster. Works well, but is a little tight/heavy, so it's going to go in the nightstand, and I'm looking at a smaller semi-auto to replace it.

Clips over the belt. The clips are pretty strong. I've done a LOT of draw work, and it stays put every time. Tuckable, as well.

Ditto peacefulgary. Ruger LCP in simple pocket holster, but I'm waiting for a Galco KingTuk for my Glock 26.

These aren't my only set ups (the XDS having been resting at SA for the past 4ish months), but they're the only two that I had a photos of.

Just removed the magwell and steel MSH to make this .45 better to CC. Added the tape to the CT Lasergrips for the same reason.

Shot it today. It is a tack-driving, deadnuts-reliable friend who's a little over-weight but then so am I.
