    Started carrying with a Charter Arms, Bulldog .44 special.
    Bought a Ruger P345. Carried that one for a couple years.
    My beau bought me a G30 for my birthday and I've been carrying it since. Been over a year now. Recently bought an IWB holster and never leave home without it!

    During the last two weeks:

    1) SA 1911A1 Commander
    2) Ruger Speed Six 2.75"
    3) Glock 23
    4) Rossi M885

    It depends on the weather, time of day, and the destination.

    I have about 1000 rounds for the bulldog. Got it on sale 3 years ago from the local gun shop in Cortez Colorado. Told the owner I wanted 1500 rounds...he got worried that my attacker had been released from prison. I told him if I needed that many rounds to take care of that, I needed more training.

    On a related note...just got good news that he was denied parole again...next hearing: February 2012

    I carry a Springfield XD45 Service Model 4" with Thumb Safety in a Blackhawk Serpa CQC paddle holster. In the summer I wear a t-shirt then a loose fitting, light-weight, long sleeve shirt, unbuttoned, over that.

    I have tried all kinds of ways to conceal small guns in hot weather. None have worked well and all were difficult to bring into play. Decided if I was going to carry a gun, I needed to bring it to bear in 1 second and it might as well be a stopper.

    Handgun cocked-and-locked with 14 rounds of Remington 230 Gr Golden Saber.

    You get used to it after awhile. (A good belt makes all the difference in the world)!

    When I can CCW it will be my G19 in a shoulder rig, soon after probably my P226 in .40 in the same.

    I cant carry on the waistband, I always have a problem with the butt of the gun sticking out.

    Try the Blackhawk Serpa CQC. It comes with a belt slide and paddle attachment and can be set for forward, rear (cross-draw), or straight cant. I have mine set at straight cant, and I can wear it outside of concealment with my arm down and it covers the whole thing. This is using a a Springfield XD45 Service Model 4" with Thumb Safety.

    Used to carry a Star 40 in my back right pocket, then went to a full size RIA 45. Since I just got my new stainless ultra raptor II, it is my 24 / 7 off duty carry. Accurate, light and it ain't hard on the eyes.:wow: I carry it in a SOB and have no trouble at all with printing. On my property I don't even try to conceal.

    G27, but I just got a S&W 442, so I may be mixing it up some in the future.

    Right now my G22 until I get ammo for my G20 then that'll be my new EDC and if I get a G29 that'll be my bug/glove compartment gun.
