Your Concealed Handgun, . . . what is it?

A few years ago, we had a thread on here, . . . the theme was "What do you carry?"

I spent a couple of hours deciphering it, . . . trying to find the most popular 3 or 4 or 5 handguns that folks carried CCW.

I'd like to update that thread, and if you would, please simply answer with what you carry. I'm wondering if there have been any changes.

Caliber, style, capacity, size, and maker.

I carry a .45 ACP, 1911, 9 shot, full size, RIA.

After a couple of weeks or so, . . . I'll tally up the results for everyone, . . . and compare them to the top three I found in the first thread.

Thanks, may God bless,
Dwight

Great idea, Dwight!

I have 2 of which I rotate, both seeing about equal time depending on dress.

Preffered:
.327 Fed Mag; DA Revolver; 6-round; Sp101 3"; Ruger

Seconardy choice, more easily concealed:
.45 ACP; Striker-fired Auto; 6+1 capacity; Sub Compact Slim; Glock 36

9 times out of 10 it's a .38 Spl or .357 Mag revolver of some description,

Most often the Ruger LCR, SP101 or 3" GP100.

When I can't carry one of the above (for wardrobe reasons) it's a Ruger LCP in .380.

Normally:
CZ 75d PCR 9mm (Compact, Alloy Frame, SA/DA Decocker)

On Occasion:
CZ 75b 9mm (Full size, All Steel, SA/DA Manual Safety)

If my wardrobe limits what I can conceal:
Kel-Tec PF-9 9mm (Subcompact, Polymer Frame, DAO)

On rare case I'm OC'ing, then either of the CZ's or a Ruger GP100 6" (my woods gun)
