    What do you carry? I carry a 38 spc in my pocket and a 45 XD in the console.. Do any of you carry knives as well?

    I have four handguns I use for CC, I trade off depending on how I have to dress that day. My handguns are; PT145, PT709, Rossi .357 461, PT738. I always have the 738 on me regardless of whatelse I'm carrying, and yes I do carry a folder, it's a SOG Fusion, and I keep it razor sharp. On top of all that, I use a cane to walk with, an Arkansas Hickory Root cane, and I know how to utilize it as a defensive weapon also... :):):)

    I carry an M&P Compact .40 most of the time. Sometimes my PF9. I carry the Cold Steel Recon folder...I believe they call it Recon One, or something like that.

    Always got my LCP in my pants pocket. Just ordered today a Crossbreed Super Tuck for my 5" 1911.

    I'm not sure if I'll end up carrying the 1911 or not, but at min. it will be a vehicle carry gun.

    Kimber Pro carry 2 HD in a crossbreed supertuck. I'm currently shopping for a pocket gun as a back up.

    Once in a while I'll carry an SP101 in 357. My wife claimed it so I have to fight her for it .

    I forgot to mention knives. I always carry at least one in my pocket but some days I carry 2. The uses of a good pocket knife are endless.

    I carry a S&W M&P 45 75% of the time in a Don Hume IWB holster, the other 25% I carry a S&W 642 38 spl in a Don Hume IWB holster. I always carry a pocket knife of some sort as they come in handy for daily use.

    I carry a full size 1911 in a cross breed and love it. Still getting used to the weight and think I will need to upgrade my belt sooner then later if I continue to carry the 1911.

    I always carry the folder, I never got used to not having it after I left the military. Emmerson Commander, it cant helput stay sharp, if I cant shave with it it goes to the ceramic stick for a couple of swipes and its right back to shaving!

    I'm in California, I pretty much carry open hands. Getting a tad older now and it hurts more than it used to but it is still alot of fun. I'm packing a slightly broken hand and finger from the last encounter.:D:(

    It depends on what I foresee going on....

    I have a DW C-BOB in 10mm, a Ed brown Kobra Carry in .45ACP, a H&K PSP P7 in 9mm, a PPK/s in .380ACP, and a S&W Airweight in .38Spl.

    Just as one does not have only 1 pair of shoes, there should not be only 1 handgun for SD.

    Full size M&P 40 with a Galco IWB, or a S&W 442 in the pants pocket with a DeSantis Super Fly.

    Always have a Kershaw Blur or Kershaw Leek with me 24/7.

    I carry either a S&W M&P 40C or the Gen 4 Glock 17. Just whichever I am drawn to before I leave the house in the morning. Been looking for a nice piece of cutlery to carry as well, still searching though...

    I usually carry a Kel-Tec PF9, as I await the arrival of my Kimber Solo Carry (both 9mm). I have Desantis Nemesis pocket holster that will work for either, but more often than not it rides inside a belly-band at waste level. It's simple, works for just about any attire, and I really value the opportunity to travel light.

    Often times there's an XDm45 tucked away in the truck. I have a Crossbreed Supertuck for it, but due to its size it's only practical as a winter carry on my person. The XDm is a nice gun, but it's one that I don't mind knocking around a bit in the "truck gun" role.

    A range pistol. I don't customize my gun purchases to the needs of criminals.

    I don't pursue them. When/if the time comes, and they come to me, I certainly

    hope a full size 92 or 1911 is up to the task.

    IMO, our first mistake, as a society, is catering to criminals.

    We should develop a mindset which forces them to cater to us. That

    puts them at the disadvantage from the outset.
