As of right now im waiting for my Cpl in the mail, but i will be carrying my four inch Gp100. Already have a holster and got a new belt for it so im ready. Ive open carried a few times but its kinda hard to openly carry in a factory.

Most often I'll carry my Ruger P95, the LCP if an occasion or clothing dictates something less noticable. Every one in a while I carry my GP100. All OC as often as I can.

I carry both. I usually carry my Ruger GP100 .357 but sometimes my Beretta 92 compact.

Guns ... the great addiction. Went to the gun store to buy my first gun. It was a display piece and they wanted to clean it up nice for me. Had to wait 2 days to pick it up. Before I actually got my first gun I was already agonizing over what my 2nd gun should be ...

BTW, XDm 9mm 3.8 Compact. Also got a SW 22A for cheap practice. Planning to get another XDm (or maybe just an XD) full frame for home defense in 45 ACP. Color me AUTO.

Generally the LCP is in my pocket when I leave the house, and goes in the glovebox when I get to work (carrying on company property is an immediate firing offense, and I like my paycheck - State law protects my rights in the parking lot). When not a workday, I sometimes carry the Airweight 637 IWB. Around my house and acreage, whatever is close at hand, as long as it will take out a critter intent on eating my chickens.

I also carry a colt new agent for certain situations and sometimes a bersa thunder if the need for discrete is even higher. Wont go into that detail as opsec is in effect. Sometimes being discrete is a wiser option.
What is opsec?
