I carry either a Glock 23compensated or a Springfield XDS in 45.
I carry a Keltec PF9 9mm. I've standardized on caliber to save on having to buy a ton of rounds in 8 different caliber s
I really kick myself for selling my PF9. That gun was so light and easy to conceal/carry. I never had one issue with mine.
I'm doing the same consolidation, since I always seem to buy guns just when they are a great deal. I want to get down to 22, 9, 45, 223, 12 gauge, maybe 308
But I already have an LCP 380, and that's silly to get rid of, or that 38 revolver that makes a good trunk gun, and some competitions want you to shoot 40 to score, and then a buddy sold me a 357sig at a good price, and that reminded me I missed my 357 mag revolver, and some of those new AR calibers are cool, and wouldn't 300 BO be so easy to suppress, but while I'm at it a 485 or whatever it is SOCUM could be a blast...
I'm trying to pare down to 5 pistols and 5 long guns (not including sentimental guns).
Luckily I made the decision before I bought a bunch of guns. I have .22, 9mm, 12 gauge, and .223 that I stock a bunch of ammo for.
I have a 20 gauge over under that I use for trap/pheasant hunting but I only keep 2 cases of shells for that one.
Only other caliber I would ever get is a .357/.38 as my wife wants a revolver. Again wouldn't stock a lot of ammo for that.
see how those other 2 calibers are sneaking up on you though? that's what happens to me. I go through maybe 25 rounds of 380 and 5 rounds of 38 a year, but still have to keep and stock some.
I have sold my 357 sig, and 300 BO uppers, but still sitting on a pile of 40 ammo and no gun to shoot it. Another thing I'm liking is multiple parts work for more than one thing. an M&P mag will fit in a Pro, 4", and compact, and most holsters will fit them all. Makes the piles of crap you take to the range easier to deal with.
410 in a bond arms derringer. two trigger pulls = 6 projectiles in center mass.

Got my order in from sgammo yesterday for my wasr and pistoleros. Practicing can get a bit expensive lol.

A .22 pistol, something like the Walther P22. Because it's relatively small/compact, and it's cheap, as well as ammo. Sure, I'd like something like the FN Hi-power, but that would become cumbersome to carry after a while.
As long as you can shoot it fast and well, and reload quickly, more power to ya!
There are positives and negatives to the round, but I am fond of it.
10 rounds should be sufficient, unless there was a zombie attack. :-P
Yes, Hi-Powers are a tad big for ongoing EDC in urban/suburban environments for my tastes, but they are one of the finest pistols around. I miss mine, but that's another story.
I've been known to carry a 22 WMR backup pistol, but the P22 is too big for my taste. A basic NAA MiniMag with CCI's Maxi-Mag TNT (30 gr Speer Gold Dot JHP) is my choice for a small but potent, up-close and personal belly gun. The TNT won't achieve it's potential out of this pistol, but it's stated muzzle specs of 2200 fps and 322 Ft-Lbs of energy make a it a viable combo when something larger is not possible, regardless of barrel length.
My normal carry, though, is 9mm, sometimes .45, with Winchester Ranger T-Series loaded with the heaviest bullet the gun can handle, or Hornady Critical Defense if I'm carrying my Sig P938.
i may be a real bad boy, but I'm a real good man

On Sunday it was a .45 ACP
.357 & .380 most often.
That parking garage video from Charlotte has me reconsidering my basic load.
What particular aspect of that video is compelling you to reconsider your basic load?
Back to 9mm for the time being.
