    That speed strip reminded me........ I bought a couple in 1996? when I bought my 442. Lots of in and out and pocket wear over the years, and the gun and the strip were daily carry for a number of years. One of the end slots tore about 2 weeks ago. Pushing 20 years, I'd say that's a pretty tough product.......

    Ok, carry on.........

    My EDC handgun is a Ruger LCP. I bought it so I would have no excuse not to have a firearm on me. I carry it in a Foxx Holsters hybrid holster w/ kydex J-clips. I love it!

    I want to get a Glock 26 for when I want to carry something bigger.

    I got a .38 Taurus for the same reason. I carried my Sig P229 today and I really can't imagine hauling that thing around much, even though it isn't really that big a pistol.

    I carry a PF9 in the summer time using the belt clip. Love that little gun. I would have gotten a S&W Shield had I been able to afford one at the time. I want to upgrade the trigger to the Northwood when I get the funds.

    Yup. I haven't had a day where I'm not armed since I got it four months ago. Really helps my peace of mind.

    I carry my P229 fairly often. They are thick and heavy, but that allows them to shoot smoothly and quickly. I did have to move to AIWB carry years ago to conceal the Sig in all forms of dress, I also had to design and build my own AIWB rig because I wasn't fond of many on the market that I tried. A good purpose designed gun belt is a necessity as well.
    Sig P229 SCT with +2 mag carries easily in Appalachian Concealment Custom Kydex AIWB rig.

    I'm just a wee guy, 5'7" and 160lbs (with my boots on) and I just got a Volund Atlas belt to go with my K Rounds IWB and it feels OK. I don't know how you do AIWB it seems so counter intuitive with regard to comfort.

    I also have a Contact Concealment OWB which is good for range but hard to conceal since it is a zero cant and I don't like the retention.

    I love the way my Sig shoots plus I got it for $400 with 3 mags from a buddy.

    I really like mine as well … I actually bought it as a "stopgap" while waiting for the Kimber Solos to get the kinks worked out … when I first got the PF9, it was NOT reliable … 20 - 25% failures ! … I contacted KelTec and asked them if they would buy their paperweight back from me, and they said "send it in, we'll fix it" … 5 weeks later I got back what felt like a completely different gun. Tight, smooth and 100% reliable (one bad mag, but easily fixed) … I really like it, would also prefer a trigger with less stack, but it's been a great little carry ...
    The Solo CDP finally came in and it is also 100% reliable (1 FTF @125 rds., and one "slide bite" - both on me) and it's just so smooth … guess I got a good one. So the Solo will soon become my EDC, and the PF9 will be my lite camping / hiking gun, (that is until my middle Son finally talks me out of it) …
    Bought myself a Kimber Ultra Raptor II for Christmas, but haven't got to shoot it yet - hoping to make it my Fall/Winter carry.
