What do you carry for CCW?

This poll has been posted per a request from GT user "Fox". Just looking for the basic info for comparison, but if you wish, you may share make/model/calibre/etc. Thanks!

That about covers it for me as well..

"Dress for the occasion." G27 or J frame.
An Internet forum is like having a friendly conversation over a drink at a local tavern.

Some guy at the end of the bar always has to stand up and shout something that makes no sense at all.

I have a couple dozen handguns, but mostly carry my G33 or Bersa Thunder 380. During the winter, I sometimes carry my G19. During the hottest days, I'll carry a pocket gun, such as my Beretta Tomcat.

Always a S&W 640 or 642 -- either as a back-up to my trusty G22, or as a primary, with a KT P-3AT as backup (depending on the situation and where I am working).

Have been known to carry all 3!

I've used one of those pagerpals..... They suck. I don't see how anybody can pull off wearing one and stay comfortable, and all without printing (And I don't mean the gun. The holster. Looked like I had a dinner plate down my pants.). I couldn't even pull off ONE of those things with it, much less both together. Worst holster ever.

The PP holster SCREAMS gun. Can you change the pager for a fake phone?

I carry both. There should be a third option here I guess. One or the other and sometimes both at the same time.

Me too, but I'd have to say I carry an auto 99% of the time, so my vote was auto.

Depends on the situation, sometimes double or triple carry.
