Default recommendations for EDC

I currently carry an lc9 with one extra mag. After recent events in Colorado and Connecticut I've decided I want something with a larger magazine capacity. What's a reliable weapon with a larger magazine similar in size to an lc9

I carry a Sig P250 .45 (sub-compact) as my EDC.

M&P9c is my recommendation. I try to stay American made with my firearms whenever possible.

The LC9 is fine though. Most shootings only involve one or two BG. As long as your a decent shot, and have good defense ammo when carrying, you will be fine.

Ive always got a ruger lcp in my pocket. When i can i also carry a full size 45 or a compact 45 in addition to the ever present ruger. Sometimes its a 1911 or a xdm. I may get a 9mm for a bit more firepower considering these shooters are trending bullet proof may need more than a few after center hits arent working.

An fn 5.7 would be nice if i couldnt get the hot ap military rounds

My EDC is a Ruger SR9c. Thinking that my next one will be a Ruger LCP.

The quantity of ammunition spent is in direct correlation to the quality of the shot taken.

If you can't hit the barn when shooting, then go for quantity.

I'm a good shot but my opinion is I'd rather have it and not need it then need it and not have it.
