What do shooters, who normally use 1911s, Glocks, and CZs in competition, prefer as carry gun?

Do most really follow the "carry what you shoot" or use a carry gun with similar platform to what they shoot?

I'm not saying most, but the people I've asked go for the Glock 17

i also believe in the "shoot what you carry" mantra. i shoot and carry a g22, it is also my first option for home defense, fitted with a longer mag (23rnds), but i also have a bigger gun to back me up if the perps are really serious. for carry, w/c i seldom do bcos i have problems w/ managing my anger, i had an IWB holster custom made by mr. quikie hehehe.

I don't carry anymore, but my home defense gun is a Glock 19, which is also the gun I compete with. I wish I hadn't sold my G17 though a few years ago, as I find steel plates harder to hit using the G19 :crying:

Having the same carry/defense and competition gun reduces the amount of stuff I have to commit to muscle memory.

Its always best to carry what you shoot. When I shot a 1911, it was my carry gun as well. Shifting to a glock, I made it a point that when I got used to it, it became my carry option as well

for now, though i have an issued Colt MK IV S'80 in 45Cal, i use my G17 for IPSC and as a range gun as well, and what i carry now is a G26. hope i can have a G22 or G23 in the future...

saki, mukhang nasasarapan ka na talaga sa glock ah. :supergrin:
yup! ever since i like to have a glock, wala lang opportunity. what i like about it is the point and shoot operation, no safety to disengage (carrying it in Condition 1). pero 1911 pa rin first love ko!!!

i've come to the conclusion that a carry gun and competition gun is an almost impossible combination. kasi a carry gun has to be small. and a competition gun has to have the longest barrel possible.

so mas advisable pa house gun and competition gun 1 and the same gun. mas pwede yun. yung pang carry dapat iba talaga. IMO lang.

^ Yup, like a Glock 17 for competition, a Glock 34 for home defense, and a Glock 26 or 19 for carry. One manual of arms, and they can all accept the same 17-round magazine if needed :)

My G21 is my carry and my competition gun as well. I also compete with the G19 but I feel safer with the G21. A little bulky but never mind. It's a sweet gun.

i don't carry, bad yan:supergrin:
Oo nga. Am at an interreligious meeting and one participant (an american woman) is anti-gun activist. I did the right thing and didn't comment. Told her that Charlton Heston would disagree with her and she said 'than God he's dead already.' Wonder what she would say if I told her that I have 5 guns?
