    Right now, 9mm. I used to carry .40 S&W. I am not opposed to any caliber in a reliable firearm that will do the job you need it to do. I'm still on the fence deciding whether to try to pocket another 9mm or drop down to .380 for the pocket gun.

    No debate here; .32 ACP or 9mm depending on what I'm doing or where I'm going.

    Glock 380 most of the time, Glock 357 Sig some of the time... very different gun laws in New England and a lot of travel between them keep me pretty limited to actually carrying as much as most.

    .380ACP - P238. Federal Hydra Shok.

    Two hundred rounds (of HS), not one issue. Low recoil, great groups, and light weight. Would not hesitate to fire it inside a room w/o ear protection or make a difficult shot within my comfort range.

    At the moment, I have a 637-2 in my pocket loaded with 135 +P Speer Gold Dots...

    When I'm looking for a bit more firepower, I'm carrying a Shield with 124gr +P Gold Dot's or HST's (I use the Freedom Munitions stuff at the range)...

    90% of the time it's 124 grain 9mm Federal HST's...

    10% of the time it's 95 grain .380 WWB for those "deep carry" occasions.

    Of course if I had my way and society was more accepting about open carry it would be 30-30!

    9mm. At the moment I don't own anything else. Looking for either a .380 or a .38 SPL.

    Nine times out of ten, I am carrying 9mm. Other times when I want to have the sexiness of a 1911 on my hip, I carry .45ACP. I have been toying with .357Sig, but I would have to get a gun chambered in that. I may just get a P320 to do that.

    9mm. I only own a Ruger SR9c and an old Browning BDA 380 but that was a gift from my dad. Obligatory 12 ga shotgun for home defense too.

    IF I carry, which is random depending on my mood or the days planned activities these days,
    grab and go on a lark its .380Auto
    If I'm feeling retro/classy etc, and can justify the weight, 45Colt.
    Outdoors pursuits off the beaten path, .357Mag

    Yes, no bebate.

    My seacamp .32 acp and/or my Glock 19 9mm.

    I have a 2 round mag extension on my Glock 19 for my large hands.

    So I'm carrying 18 rounds, that's 3 six shooters.

    That's a 15 round mag with a 2 round extension and 1 round in the chamber = 18.

    Since everybody else gives more details... Mine was 9mm, 35 rounds of HST. 17+1 and 17 most days. If I'm bored, I'll use the mag with the +5 extension for my reload.

    It's easier to list the calibers I never carry. I do not have a 41 or 50 cal handgun. I own and carry 22s, a 25, 32s,380, 9mms, 357 sig, 357 mag, 357 max, 40, 10mm, 44, 45s, 454, 475, and 480 ruger. What I carry depends on weather, dress, and daily activity.

    99% of the time I carry a Glock 30 .45 acp. Untucked golf shirt with pants or cargo shorts. The other 1% is 9mm pocket carry when I have to tuck.

    You should get a 41, how are you carrying the 357Max?

    Ok, I know I'm not the only one who wants a pic of this gun collection and ammo locker. :D

    Bah, it didn't quote... :eek:

    9mm Speer Gold Dot 124 grain +P Short Barrel. Love it!!!

    9mm is the best along with .357, everything else is garbage.
