No particular order.

3) Glock 36, slim grip
4) Smith&Wesson bodyguard w/laser in front
So, as I mentioned, I'm trying to figure out what will be my concealed carry choice. What you're wearing makes perfect sense as to which you'll carry. Can I ask you what situations/where you are going makes you choose which pistol?

I don't have as many handguns as I used to but I carry a Glock 22 with a 3.5 pound trigger and trijicon night sites, soon upgraded to ghost sites.

Does carrying a 3.5lb trigger bother you? What kind of holster do you use?

Hey Charlie Girl,
Here is how i do it. During work hours i carry my S&W bodyguard IWB because it is the smallest and most concealable. Anywhere else and I have to tuck in my shirt i usually carry my kimber, glock 36 or colt in a galco IWB holster. If it is just a untucked t-shirt i will carry anything.

Not directed at me, but I'll weigh in. I carry a 26 with a 3.5# trigger and I love it. I feel like it is a little smoother and it is very consistent.

Coming in november we get our ccw/oc permitted carry law. Mainly be carrying my 1911 with no real care whether someone sees or not. If i gotta go to the bank or a very crowded public place my smaller new agent or even the bersa thunder.

Smaller guns also make perfect pocket carry in the winter where a heavy coat can make it hard to access a iwb holster. So your regular gun iwb and one in the jacket pocket is ideal.

I agree with Jay, find the pistol that fits you first and then evaluate your CCW options.

I usually carry a Sig P226 in a Crossbreed Supertuck IWB. I have found it to be the most comfortable IWB I have ever tried. My wife carries a Sig P239 also in a Crossbreed.

Although I live in an open carry state, I do have a CCW and prefer concealed. If it is too hot a day during monsoon, I'll go to a S&W Sigma 380 in a pocket holster (soon to be replaced with a Ruger LC9 which is also a pocket pistol).

The key to how to carry is to find a comfortable rig for the pistol you shoot well and then carry it everywhere & everyday. Nothing worse than regretting not having what you need but don't have.

Nah just like the later post its smoother than the factory and I use a blackhawk serpa holster. I wont use anything that doesn't lock the pistol down. I see people with safari holsters and I don't see any locking mechanism on it and it freaks me out lol.

I've been thinking about the cross breed holsters but they don't have the locks on them. I know a pawn broker that has one but he says it rubs rough on him, yes he's a big boy lol, just wondered if they rubbed everyone raw.
