I prefer to carry a 5" Colt 1911 in an IWB with one spare mag.

When that is just not possible I carry (keep it quiet!) a Kel-Tec P11 in an Uncle Mike pocket holster. My little gun used to be a Taurus Mod 85CH in same pocket holster. Found the the P11 to be lighter and twice the capacity.

Except in seriously unusal situations, I can carry my 45 and do. The bonus is that I can also carry the P11 at the same time, and normally do that also.

Concealed carry choices

Most frequently I carry a 3 inch heavy barrelled S&W Model 60 Chief's Special in a pancake holster made by Doc Barnett. But I also often carry a Kahr P9 in a Ky-Tac kydex holster, or a SIG P230 in a Ky-Tac rig or in a Horan hideout holster attached to the straps on my body armor.

And if I'm feeling particularly elegant that day I have a Walther PPK tuned up by Krebs Gunsmithing I carry in a Mitch Rosen shoulder holster.

A lot depends on the weather and my mode of dress. I'm a big boy and I can probably hide a 37mm cannon (sawed off) under a parka, but the summers here in Wisconsin are hot & humid and at such times I prefer to carry something small and flat that I can hide easily.

The little gun you have with you is more useful than the big gun you left at home because it was too big to hide. The first rule of gunfighting is: HAVE A GUN!

We qualify quarterly and I usually go out on a day off when in-service is in session and shoot the current QC with all of my hideout guns because we don't have time to do it when I'm either instructing or scheduled to attend as a student. The specific courses we run for off duty and backup guns are usually 30 rounds and require shooting out to 10 yards or so.

My favorite Conceal Carry Pistol

Lately I am happy with the lite weight Taurus PT-111 (9mm) Mill.Pro.
It conceals real nice and mine is loaded with 9 rnds. in a 10 round mag. I like the 115g JHP - Winchester. (Trigger is the only thing I don't find superb) took a little getting used to it.... but shoots great and no problems 500+ mixed diet....

Glock 23 IWB, with 13+1 165gr Gold Dots from Double Tap ammo, 50% of the time. SW mod 37 snub with Remington 125gr +p sjhp, 25%. The rest of the time I carry either the G19 with 147gr Win USA JHP, Sig p228 with 115gr Remington JHP, or the Keltec p32 with Remington FMJ. Depends on mood and of course, mode of dress.

I carry my Glock 19 when I can and my SW380 when I cant. My Kershaw folder is always with me. If my SW40VE keeps performing the way it does at the range (500 rds. NO malfunctions) it may see some carry time. All my guns are loaded with Federal Hydro-Shoks.

Since I got CCW legal

I carry a PT145 eating Win 185gr STHP in a DeSantis Stealth Pro IWB. It must be good because my wife hugged me today and thought I was "happy to see her" which, of course, I always

if i can wear a jacket, it's my 5" 1911 in a vertical gunmate shoulder rig (light, comfy, cheap). if it's winter and i'm going to be outside then it's my 1911 in an old school black leather US leather shoulder rig (looks scary to the bad guys lol) and if it's warm i wear my FEG APK .380 in a generic gun show single shoulder setup under a button up shirt. i work in detroit on the midnight shift, so i carry the .45 whenever possible.
S&W H.E 1902 1st change Target .38 Special
S&W model 64-3 3" rb .357 mag
Llama 1911 clone Max-I .45 acp
FEG APK Mark II .380

I do not carry all the time, nor have I carried for long, but I alternate between a S&W 357m and a Glock23. For sentimental reasons, I enjoy the reliable wheelgun. I also know that Glock will blow the living hell out of whatever I point it at... ...13 times.
