    I don't carry (yet) but 9mm for me. I figure I can afford to shoot 9mms more often so I'm more accurate and a bigger caliber won't do much if I miss.

    .40 here. Something is always better than nothing. Keeping my fingers crossed Glock comes out with a single stack .40 so I can get rid of my LCR without feeling a bit guilty.

    The 357 max is my favorite all around round. With the right bullets it works for everything up to black bear. I also like the fact that for plinking and smaller game I can use 357 mag or 38 spl.

    .40 cal here. Self defense ammo is Federal HST 165 or 185 grain. Depending on what I can get my hands on, or if my wife is going to be using my gun.

    Only do 9mm and 45.. I try to keep it to those two Pistol calibers so I'm not hoarding 8 different Pistol caliber ammo

    I did 45 because I love 1911's and most options are in 45. I did 9mm also because for range and small carry it's economical without sacrificing power

    For me, 9mm.

    124gr Fed HST standard pressure to be precise. Usually in a G19.

    Just out of curiosity, how many people carry without one in the pipe?

    Not me.

    If you need it, you're already behind the curve by the time you have legal justification. Why make it harder on yourself?!
