Depends on the season and where I am or am going. Summer, around the house/neighborhood. M&P Shield w/spare mag or Bodyguard .38 Spl+p w/3-4 speed strips.
Jacket or hoodie weather, Compact 9 w/spare mag. Extreme Shock frangibles and Cor-Bon JHP's.
Going to or thru Detroit, FS M&P 17+1, two spare mags. Cor-Bon JHP's.

Like other have said, it depends on the weather whether I'll go with a G23 or G27.

I carry ether a cm9 or cw9 kahr and spare mag. Not planeing on a shoot out. They are reliable and that more important to me. Now have a TCP 380 to finish proofing for when smaller is needed.

Hard to carry a large high cap anything when you wear tools and sweat for a liveing.

I carry a Ruger Blackhawk. Its an old .357 Magnum Three Screw converted to .44 Special.

For many years I carried a Smith Model 19 .357 Magnum, but comparing my .44 Special rounds to the .44s, I felt a lot more comfortable with the bigger bullet.

I only load five rounds, but figure that's more than enough. I'm much faster with this than any other gun I've tried for out-of-the-holster draw and fire, and I've had more experience on critters with the .44 to be confident with it.

I am also very careful that I don't walk into situations where I might need an assault rifle-in-a-handgun type of weapon.

As to seasonal carry, mine's the same year 'round. I live in Memphis, TN where it never gets over 110 in the summer nor below 0 very often in the winter.

At work it is a Glock G22 .40, just about every other time it is my Kimber Ultra CDP II. Sometimes it is my Ruger SP 101 .357 just for kicks or a bug. Always extra mags or speed loaders, ya just never know.

Depends on how I'm dressed. I only carry what can't be noticed.

You can if you use a Remora holster.

Get her dirty, then clean her so she starts to respect you. When her trust is complete, she will serve you well for a lifetime!

You'd be amazed at where I've concealed *things* without a holster

Kahr PM9 for daily carry because it's small enough for no BS concealment and big enough to still shoot quickly and accurately without looking like Agent J from Men in Black trying to hold his "noisy cricket".
