    I am hoping that IL will one day soon pass the law and would like to be as comfortable as possible with whatever I decide on carrying. Leaning towards a 1911 as I am a better shot with them.

    Ed Brown Special Forces 5" 1911. Or G32 Glock in 357 SIG. But it is what floats your boat that really matters. Have fun on the hunt.

    Ed Brown Kobra Carry, Walther PPK/s, Kel-Tec p3-AT, and others.

    Depends on what I have plan to do.

    A 1911 at all times. I don't like changing platforms. In a stressful situation it might get you killed.

    I live in Illinois so I cannot carry but I'm already practicing around the house and property with my Sig P238. :D

    I practice with snap caps and carry in a Remora holster.

    Nice work! For me its usually my gen 3 glock 23. Simplicity and reliability are hard to argue with. But depending on my mood, i also choose between my kimber eclipse custom II .45, h&k p30 9mm, and browning hi power in. 40s&w

    I carry a Kimber Pro Crimson Carry II. When not carrying that, a Sig P229R Compact, and if not that, a Sig P238. There are others in the CCW carry group but these are the ones carried the most. And I always have a pocket gun for backup too!

    My 1911's were too heavy for EDC, even the Officer's Model. On the occasion I do pack one, a Crossbreed Super Tuck is the most comfortable holster I've found. EDC these days is a S&W M&P Compact 9.

    Seems like the answer is a 1911, and who can argue with the history and man stopping power of the .45.

    Yep. 1911. I'm a fan of Hawaiian shirts. Some of the members here teased me mercilessly about not wearing drawers under the grass skirt, but I swear, the shirts conceal a full sized 1911 perfectly...it's what I was wearing this past weekend at the baby mama's house...
