The truth is that this is not an easy decision at all... I have been working on "what I carry" for two years now. My preference, all things being equal, would be for a full size ultra reliable handgun. Why full size? Easy. Fast to target, easier on the recoil, more accurate due to distance between sights, higher capacity (although I only ever carry ten rounds exactly of what I am using at any time in any event so that I can bring the gun back into Kanada with me and so that it makes counting my shots easier and more standard). Lots of reasons to carry a full size handgun... it also intimidates a bad guy more than a mouse gun if the BG is open for intimidation... the pulsating red laser does the same thing although contrary to popular opinion I don't believe it is worth a damn in a gunfight as targets are moving too fast. Anyway, my first choice would be a full sized, striker fired, ultra reliable, lightweight handgun. Not always practical. Especially in hot weather like we experienced in Lexington KY when we were there last year. Boy was it ever hot! I wound up carrying my Glock 30 OWB under a baggy shirt and it was great. Ten rounds of Gold Dots and/or Federal Premium Self Defense plust 1 in the tube. And two extra magazines each holding ten rounds of the same on the opposite side on my belt in what would look like a cellphone carrier if anyone saw it. 30 rounds of .45 plus one in the tube. If that doesn't take care of business you are in very serious trouble. If I am choosing to pocket carry I will use my G26 in a top quality pocket holster. My only issue with the Glocks is the lack of a thumb or grip safety and that is being resolved as we speak..... a great move that will add another 10 or 20 percent to Glock's already great sales. We also carry an HK P7M8, Walther P99, Sig P226 and on rare occasion a Para P1345 and a few others. They all have their claims to fame. That HK P7M8 is dead accurate for longer distance engagements although I have learned that the accuracy of pretty much any of these quality guns is more than ample for close quarters combat (CQB). The Walther P99 is light, accurate and eats anything I feed it. The Sig P226 the same. Oh, and the HK has a fixed barrel that runs on gas... no wobble and incredible accuracy but you pay for what you get. I have never had a failure on any of the above, ever. And that's my final rule. One failure is too many although I have taken the training to clear a jam the same as everyone else. In that 1.5 seconds an assailant can slice you wide open. If it's all the same I would simply rather not deal with it so most 1911's are off my list with the odd exception. Whatever you choose, it needs to be ONE HUNDRED PERCENT reliable, reasonably accurate and easy enough to carry that you never leave it behind. For that reason, when travelling I often use paddle holsters as we change clothes often, wearing shorts and T shirt during the day, perhaps jacket and shirt in the evening. It's gotta be easy unless you have one of those compulsive disorders. And the more I use my Glocks in competition, the more comfy I feel with them. I am still not at the point where I will carry my Glocks with one in the tube (and hence cocked and unlocked) IWB, but I will do so OWB, etc., where my chances of hitting a vital organ or artery are lessened. Glocks are one hundred and ten percent reliable and with only thirty odd moving parts they are easy to maintain.

So there you go. Latest update from the Torontogunguy. Where we can't carry concealed or otherwise. I have to come stateside in order to protect myself and my family legally.

When going "business casual" in the office: Kahr P40 polymer/ss in either a Glaco Ankle Glove or a Desantis Nemisis in my pocket or waistband...if I am wearing a "covering" shirt or jacket, then it's G23 in a RM OBW or IMB kydex holster, I wear almost 24/7...

I alternate between both. I have a S&W 642 and a Ruger LCP and will soon be carrying a G26 once I can get one.

I carry a Colt Detective Special nearly every day..

it's a shrouded, Third Issue.. With Eagle Secret Service grips.

And on days when I DON'T have my Colt, I'm pretty partial to my Glock 26 w/ Speer Gold Dot's..

And when I'm at work or wanting something a lil smaller for around the House, I carry my NAA .22magnum. with the 1 5/8" barrel..

If I'm awake, I have a CRKT folder and a can of Sabre Triple Action on me...

Been exclusive to autos but been thinking about a revolver for a long time... Just never have gotten one but I did qualify with one of my dad's J-Frames on my permit so I can carry one concealed if I get one.

Due to inflation, my $.02 no longer matters.

I carry a number of different guns. .45s, .40s, 9mm.

But regardless of my main carry, I always have a "detective's best friend" .38 snub on my ankle. Every day. That says something.

Depending on where I'm going and what I feel comfortable with I cycle through three main guns, G30, G19, and a keltec PF9.
IWB for all three (not at the same time ).

My EDC is a G30SF riding in a Crossbreed Supertuck IWB. Since I had to return to Glock for repair, I am now carrying my wife's SP 101 2 1/4" DAO with Doubletap bonded .357 rounds. In their website, they are advertised as 1,425 fps and 710 ft. lbs.!!! So I think I have enough gun until my EDC comes back home.
This SP 101 is a great little gun and packs a huge punch! My wife carries it with .38 +P....
