    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!

    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!

    (Paranoid? No, just the nature of my job.)

    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.

    Always an auto. Either a HK USP45f, G20, or a 1911. Occasionally a Kel-Tec P3AT.

    Started in 1979 with a 4in model 19 smith.Then switched to auto's back and forth.

    For the last two years it has been a model 65 smith with a 2in barrel
