    True EDC? .380. Would I like something larger? Yes, and if I carried something larger I wouldn't carry it for long so I'm left with a mouse gun. Better something than nothing.

    But of course, 007 has rocked the coveted 9mm short since Thunderball in 1965.

    .32 (Seecamp) when I want to deep conceal
    .380 (Sig P238) Most of the time
    9mm when I can dress around a G26

    .40 IMO it is a nice middle ground between 9 mm and 45 acp.

    I used to always carry .45 but my carry philosophy changed and for the last 4 years I've only carried 9mm.

    Colt .45 semi auto most days with either a .38 or a .380 backup. Just heard on the scanner a mom and kids locked in the bathroom. Intruder is in the basement. Mom has a handgun with her and husband is investigating. Sometimes any caliber is better than no caliber. What's the best handgun and caliber? The one setting next to me on the couch. These scanner calls get me going. And shots fired calls all evening. So choose the best caliber and gun you can shoot well and be safe.
