It depends on what I'm doing or where I'm going. If I have to travel to a city, which I avoid like the plague, I'll carry a 1911 .45 ACP or an XDM 9mm. In Alaska I always carried a S&W .500 for bear protection. On the trap line I carry a .22 single action Ruger with a .357 magnum Winchester Trapper 1894 in my backpack. Here at my BOL when the rattle snakes come out I'll carry a .22 magnum loaded with snake shot.

Mine are all either .380 or 9mm, so it's usually a glock 42,43 or a SW MP9c.

Springfield xdm 45 in the winter. Ruger Lcr 357 in the summer with always either a bond arms 410 or NAA 22 mag as a back up. If I wear gym shorts I have the NAA mini mag in a remora sticky holster.

I wonder how long some of you take in deciding which pistol to pack! I carry an Astra A75 in 45ACP unless my attire (very seldom) precludes it. Then it is a Kel Tec P32. For those that will wonder about my Astra, I cannot explain it but it just fits my hand so well and shoots to point of aim at close range so naturally that I know I won't miss. It also digests any round I put into it. While I personally believe in the big hole theory, nobody wants to get shot, even with a .32 and it is better than nothing. In an EDC bag is a Springfield XD in 45ACP

On another note, does anyone here belong to the US concealed carry Association? I'd like to know if anyone has signed up.

I've been to the website, but I did not sign up. I haven't heard much about the Association. I belong to enough organizations right now, so one more seems like money out of my wallet.

Some might think that sounds paranoid, I prefer to think of it as prepared!
(A) Not in the world we now inhabit, I wish I had the means to do the same (B) Superb choice in Calibre. I'm not getting into the Clibre debate it never gets resolved some love the big 45s others like the 9mm, I like the latter. if I could have a 9mm Compact pistol and a 9mm carbine I would be the happiest man on earth.

My favorite has always been the 9mm. It's big enough, and is the most common and economical round out there. Good enough for me. I am pretty happy with my collection of self defense weapons, and don't plan to assemble an Arsenal or anything, but have to admit that a 9mm carbine would be nice. Mostly as it would help consolidate the amount of different ammo rounds. I hear the carbines aren't real accurate with any distance, but would be a welcome addition if I ever come across a deal anyways.

Sorry you chaps can't have defensive weapons over there. I'm a little torn over gun control here. No doubt, there are a lot of psychos that don't need access to firearms. On the other hand, I really am glad I have the ability to have firearms to defend myself against those same psychos! I once saw a show about when the uk banned firearms. It was saddening to see them cut up all these meuseum quality weapons. A lot of them were works of art. I guess the upside is you have a lot less gun violence. We definately have a problem over here with guns as easily gotten as a soda.

The 9mm Marlin Camp carbine was a very accurate tool out 150 yards, as was one of those converted to 9mm M16s that were out over 20 years ago, the longer barrelled MP5 was bitchingly accurate at carbine ranges.

Course if I was American and loaded I would be carrying an MP7MK2 PDW.

Past 6-8 years it's been a Glock 17, last week started packing an old 1911 again.

I jus got a inside the pant holster for my S&W 9mm. I wore it out today with an untucked shirt and am happy with the concealment, but not crazy about the comfort level. Walking is fine but sitting in the car wasn't great. I'm not really thrilled with open carry as I don't want the extra attention as I prefer to go unnoticed.
