    Just curious how many of you carry revolvers and how many carry semi autos.

    I carry a .357 revolver. Used to carry an lcp, but no knock down peer with the .380

    Carry an auto. Usually a Glock 19 or an M&P .40.

    Ruger LCP w CT laser. Used to carry SW J frame SS or Colt Officers. The Colt was surprisingly reliable and accurate. Can't get myself to call a 45 - a mouse gun but some consider sub 4" barrels to be in that category.

    I switch off. Most of the time I carry a .38+P S&W Titanium Stubby. Sometimes I carry my Kimber CDP II in a shoulder rig. I have hung up the .380's because the round is basically useless. To me a .380 is a backup to a backup or just a 3rd gun in case of extreme emergency. I now keep a .380 in my Landcruiser medical kit and a .380 in my blowout kit on my M4 chest rig.

    I thought there was a poll on this here somewhere, but I can't find it now.

    Oh yeah, I have an auto.

    I carry both. Depends on the situation I live in a rural area if I'm in the woods (black bear country), I carry either a 6 inch 686 or 629. For ccw have have 2 autos a Glock27 or colt commander, occasionally I'll carry an airweight s&w 642 j frame in the hot summer months.

    My main carry is a springfield xdm compact 45acp either 9+1 or 13+1 depending on how much i care about being discrete.

    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.

    My current EDC is a S&W M&P, I also carry a 1911 on occasion and a Kel-Tec P3AT for a backup. I don't own a revolver yet but I'm working on that.

    Sounds like most folks like the semi auto. That is the direction I was leaning as well. I like the idea of "needing" another gun though...

    It depends. Sometimes I'll carry my DW CCO, other times I'll stick my Charter Arms undercover in a pocket.
    Whatever works.

    I switch off between a XD subcompact and a snubnose .357 magnum depending on my mood.

    Both

    Either a Kahr PM 9 or 4" 1911 depending on the season PLUS my Ruger SP101 .357 "truck gun" because it awful hard to draw a pistol holstered strong side while seated in a vehicle.
