G26. Always. I think it is wise to find what you like most and stick with it. That way, you will always know what you've got without having to waste a millisecond thinking about.

Muscle memory and habits are useful in high stress situations.

(I do sometimes have other gun(s) in my car, such as a draco and/or a rifle. The laws here let me bring pretty much whatever I want in my car with me, fully loaded)

G30 - most the time

G22 - when I feel like a little more. Sometime take this if going to a match or the range, as it fits the same holster as my IDPA gun (G34). Would prefer to carry this one more, but just doesn't conceal to my liking. However, have a new holster coming which I'm hoping will cure that and maybe phase out the G30

642 / XDS - for deep cover. Hoping to phase the 642 out, in favor of the XDS, but it seems one always needs a J frame in the rotation.

As you can see, my goal is to get to two, one for everyday and one for deep concealment.

ETA: Technically, the G22 is actually a G22C with a factory G22 barrel, fwiw.

"Rotation" implies equal time and equal intervals. I do not use a rotation system. That being said, unless I am in the shower or in bed, I have an SP101 on my person. If leaving the house, in normal street clothes, I normally add another SP101, or an S&W Model 19, or, sometimes, a Les Baer Thunder Ranch Special 1911. Yes, 2+ guns is normal.

If going to work, which is not normal street clothes, the SP101 is concealed, and a P229R DAK .40 rides in he duty rig, openly. A .357 sixgun goes along off-body, as does a Remington 870P. (I own my duty weapons, which is normal for this region.)

I generally like to keep things simple, which means not mixing weapon systems with varying manual safety devices and varying trigger systems. When I was carrying 1911 pistols, it was 1911 24/7. When I carried a DA/SA P220, it was my 24/7 gun for two years. Presently, my carry and duty handguns are all long-stroke DA, excpet, obviously, my 1911. As I get older, and weaker, I have started looking for good geezer guns. I pulled my 1911 out of the safe, and found it recoiled much more gently than my snappy SIG .40, which has been torturing my bad wrist. Another thing I discovered is that I can indeed mix the single-action-only 1911 and long-stroke DA successfully. The distinctive checkering and shape of the 1911 grip instantly tell my hand what it is grasping, and my old 1911 training comes right back to me.

I have had problems, however, in the past, mixing Glocks and SIGs; a session with a Glock could actually cause degraded performance (trigger control) when I would then shoot a SIG DAK. So, I still advocate that folks be very careful about carrying or "rotating" differing
systems.

I own quite a few handguns that are suitable for carry.

But I only carry three with any degree of regularity. A 9mm, a 380, and in my vehicle a 40 S&W caliber. There is also a ten plus one 45 that sometimes gets carried.

All of them have the same manual of arms. Not necessary to use an external safety to carry safely in condition one, all DAO with no magazine disconnect.

I have a selection of holsters for each and frequently carry two and a spare loaded magazine for each. The pocket carried 380 is virtually always on me (where legal), no matter what else I am carrying.

If I'm not carrying my HK 45, I have my USP 45 Compact.

G-23 or G-27 depends on where I am going, what I am doing. Today its the G-27, going to the range with it and a G-17, so wearing the G-27.

But, then again, I could switch over to my 6-inch S&W 629 .44 magnum for wintertime carry. I may do that.

S&W 642 for the summer and a G27 for anything else. Thinking about carrying the G27 more often because I shoot it much better than the 642. The only reason I carry the 642 is because it conceals easy and is comfortable.

My S&W sw99 .45 acp is my carry gun of choice and gets 99% used.
I'm a big guy and have no problem hiding a full-size gun.
All others are mostly for the range and collection.

G 19 most of the time, or a G 26 if need be. G 30 if I can get away with it. If I absolutely cannot conceal the G 26, I go with a Ruger LCP in a DeSantis in the pocket.

Mostly a G23 Gen4, its my go to weapon, nightstand and ccw gun.
When I need something light and small, its a Smith and Wesson 37-2.
In a revolver mood, its a Smith 686 2.5".
Also carry a Sig 229 Extreme, but not much, its my baby and Im not as proficient with it yet as my Glocks.
I love guns in general, but no gun has been better at all around perfection as my g23. Simply amazing and the gun I want on my hip if I ever need one.

EDC is a Glock 23. If I can't carry in a holster, I have a fanny pack that fits the Glock 26 well.

When I take my Glock 23 to the range, I wear a Colt 1911, which was my EDC for 20 years.

I don't like dealing with unloading/loading the G23 in the car. To avoid breaking the rule about bringing loaded weapons in, I carry the 1911 and leave it locked in the car when I'm in the range. To keep it safe, I have a steel lockbox in the car that is secured to passenger seat mount.

That's a lot harder to steal from than the trunk or glovebox. A thief can still get the pistol, but not unless they bring some tools.
