I kinda carry only one...I carry a G26 24/7/365...but at times I will strap on a G17...and my HD gun is a G17L.

I spend most of my practice time with the G26...the sytems are so similar, almost exact trigger, I start with the 17L, move to the 17 and I always finish my practice sessions with the G26.

Very similar, almost the same.

I'd carry my G17 for an EDC. My G17 is good for most any situation here in rural VT.

Do you wear clothing that would aid in the concealment of your carry pistol ? Or do you do the reverse and carry an appropriate pistol for what you are wearing..
Different clothing, different climate conditions, different needs...Short's, slacks, speedo's, bib's ?
yep, I will carry the largest cal pistol reasonable to my needs and what I am wearing...
Do you only have one pair of shoes that fit's all needs?

To tell the truth, I've done a little of both in the past.

I definitely adjust my clothes around my CCW gun - a G17.

its easy and easier when you are older and been shooting the same guns for 40+ years. it might be different for the less experienced which is understandable.

It's a good practice in theory, but you said this instructor trains soldiers and LEO for a living which I am neither at the moment along with most CCWers, so it's a lot harder for someone like me to strap on the same duty sized weapon I shoot best with on my waist which I can draw quickest from everytime I go out. Plus, I like learning how to carry and shoot different kinds of guns.

My belief is to use the same platform, that is just me.
If using different platforms then practice with all to be used.

I don't think it's a big deal for me but then they're all Glocks.
I find myself defaulting to my Gen4 23 because I love the size, capacity, caliber and find the RTF grip to be an advantage for drawing and overall gun control. I prefer high quality custom leather so I pretty much stick with my Brommeland and Nick Mathews IWBs, which are pretty similar.

I carry a 1911 or a GLOCK, but I also train with both of them a great deal. I carry them in the same location (4 O'Clock) spare mags in the same spot, same type of holster (MS VMII).

I only two pistols. Both are Glocks so I'm not worried there. I conceal carry a G27 and open carry a G22. Holsters are different but with enough training it's not hard to adapt.

I wouldn't recommend it to anyone unless they train and practice nonstop.

A 1911 - awesome!

I prefer to keep the guns in the same family. I usually carry a Glock 19 around but when I can I will conceal a 17. Sometimes if I need to go smaller I will carry a Glock 26. I like 9mm Glocks and prefer to stay within the Glock family.

I am a big fan of the magazine swapping as well and use Glock 17 mags as my spares.

If you are on a limited budget or just don't shoot much, that is a very good way to do things

But if you just love to shoot and shoot often, you can do more as your skill set increases. I grew up with Colt 'O' and Smith 'K' frames. They are quite different but I shot them alot over the years. Add alot of time on Browning High Powers in IDPA and SIG DA/SA series and well unless it's an oddball gun with weird safety/slide manipulations then I don't mind using 1911s, Glocks, SIGS, S&W DA/SA, etc... as well as virtually most revolver brands.

But that is the catch. You have to make shooting your avocation in order to get that skill set. Otherwise just a few guns that work the same way as well as holsters.

I agree 100%. Well said.
Practice is the key.

As a former Marine Infantry Officer, firearms instructor, and avid shooter, I too believe that the concept of same gun/same holster for purposes of CCW is probably pretty much on the mark for most people...but not 100% the case for everyone. I am quite familiar with how I react in a high stress situation; and as comfortable as I can be with it, and thus, am fine with whatever firearm and holster combination I choose to buckle on. But, having said that,when I step out the door, most often I have either a Glock 26 or 19 on. I will say emphatically that one should be well trained with whatever they select, and that their mental mindset is most important. If you have to ever make that split-second decision to employ a firearm for purposes of defense, you better be prepared to go "all in" or you are probably in for a bad day.
