Mostly carry a Colt Combat Commander 9mm in a Milt Sparks SS-2 holster. Once in a while I carry a S.A. XDS .45 ACP in a kydex IWB holster.

My favorite is my FEG AP9 .380 BUT - I only carry that on very hot days. My EDC is a Canik C-100 9mm or on occasion my KelTec P 11.


How's the trigger on the FEG? I've got an APK that's got a 20+ double action pull. Holy smokes it's tough to shoot.

I work as an armed security officer full-time. I am issued a Glock 22 by my employer, and it serves me well.

 

To stay somewhat consistent, I carry a Glock 19 Gen 5 off duty. This (and it's twin) double as a my home defense pistol, as well. I carry it in a StealthGear Ventcore IWB holster. This is comfortable for all day carry, day in and day out.

Yup, the AP9 has a 19# trigger spring but Wolf has kits that have a 9-11-13-16-17-18-19 springs. I tried a 13# but had misfires, the 17 worked fine but I went back to the original 19 just to be sure. After the first pull the SA trigger is just right. I figure that when the time comes , my adrenalin will make the DA hammer feel like a 1# pull.

Im surprised that I am the first to say a Ruger LC9s. This 7+1 9mm pistol has proved to be 100% reliable, accurate, lightweight (even with the added Crimson Trace laser) and very easy to carry in a DeSantis pocket holster or a Galco OWB holster. The trigger is the best of any gun that I own. I looked at the Shield ( didnt like the trigger), the Glock 26 (too thick) but not the Sig 365. I just dont see any reason to go to any other EDC unless I become convinced that I need higher capacity.

My wife has the Ruger LCP (6+1) in a .380 (bra holster), carries everyday.  Looks pretty uncomfortable to me.  Personally, I want more capacity to allow me to get out of whatever situation I might be stuck in.  I have 28 rounds on me to do the job if the need ever arises, and my head is always on a swivel (especially downtown).  On occasion I do pocket carry my bodyguard when I can't carry the P365, but that is rare.

Wow.  All semi-auto's.  I carry a J frame.  If I carried a semi-auto it would have to be some type of 1911 or a SA/DA with a hammer.

If you’re looking for a tiny SA 1911-ish type pistol, there have been two Sig P938s listed here at very attractive prices. I carry mine quite often. It’s a nice size for those days spent in the garden.

My summer carry is an EC9S which is basically a cheaper[fixed sights,oxide finish] version of the LC9S.

There have been many posts here about concealed carrying, and I have looked at every one.  But I am very curious about what your favorite carry firearm is.  Personally, I am a SIG man.  I have three favorites - the P229 Legion, The Sig P226 Elite, and the Sig P320.  I have also carried a few Tanfoglio 9mm in Polymer form.  They are all full-frame, but that isn't an issue since I moved to Ohio where open carry is legal (and mostly unnoticed by the masses).  Most days , I carry openly.  For the life of me I cannot say what percentage of the time I conceal, as it is really minuscule.  No One around here gives a rats a.s.s, or (most likely) notices when someone open carries.  I really LOVE this State.

 

Yes, in some ways I am wagging my tongue at you folks in Ill-Noise because you are still under Communistic rule, but am still curious about what you favor to carry every day.

 

Lately, Taurus 605 snub, with Crimson Trace lasergrip.

Also Ruger LC9 (the DAO version) 7+1 in a IWB in all seasons. Tried and true.

Usually, a Walther Q5 Match with RDS IWB, or OWB a CZ75B Compact or S&W Model 19 Classic. When I have to go smaller, a 3" 686+ or 442/642 PC J frame.

Believe it or not, the Q5 and Model 19 are the most comfortable and well-concealed; you just need the right gear and clothing.

Glock 26 is my favorite/Most common edc. Although I seem to be carrying my Glock 19 more and more.

Another vote for the P365 (12 rd mag)

 

The G43 has become a safe dweller.  I just find I shoot the Sig better and am more comfortable with the controls.

I alternate between a LCP and an EC9S, both carried in "On Your 6" holsters.

I appendix carry a gold plated tiger striped Desert Eagle 50.  

 

Just kidding lol.  I'm pretty sure every time I sat down that whole gun and holster would pop out of my pants :rofl:

 

My most carried gun is a Ruger LCP.  The second most carried is a HK VP9 SK.  In shorts I pocket carry that LCP, but in long pants it's the HK appendix.  

 

The HK is the best shooting plastic fantastic gun I've ever shot.  I've shot dang near every one of the better selling plastic guns out there, and the HK handles recoil really well, and it's super accurate.  The only mod I did was having steel Trijicon night sights installed, and had my buddy go through the gun to polish a few things.  The only downside to the HK VP9 SK is that it's thicker than a Shield, XDS, etc.  Still easily concealed, but the increased weight will likely be a limiting factor for some folks.  

 

ETA:  the only negative is that the mags tend to be priced a bit higher than most.  To me they were cheap, but most of my competition mags are $130 each so the HK's seem like a bargain to me lol.  They also come in 10, 13, and 15 round mags and all work the same.  You can do a pinky extension on the 10 round mags, but the 13's and 15's have extensions that come from the factory.
