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.

My just about every day is a Sig P365XL with an extended mag. Also carry the 12 rounder as a spare. Definately a SIG fan as well, but I ride a Goldwing, not a Triumph :) Sent from my SM-G955U using Tapatalk

P938 is current carry gun. I've been through a Shield, G43, and P290RS. The thing that I look for in a carry gun is a short single stack grip. The P290RS was a great package size wise but didn't cut the mustard for me because I couldn't trust it after I had to send it back to Sig for quality control fixes. Shield was a smidge big. G43 had harsh recoil in my hand (later discovered to be a symptom of undiagnosed onset of illness). 938 was bought previously loved by one of our members. It's a beautiful pistol and does everything I require a carry gun to do.

G26 in an OWB paddle mostly.

At times it’s pocket carry for an LCP if it’s all my clothing will allow.

The G26 is my all time favorite gun period. How do you conceal with a paddle, especially in the summer?

I dont want to start a debate about type of guns, the OP asked about your favorite.

When I can, I carry a phased plasma rifle in the 40 watt range. When that's not available, I really like the Sig p365.

My favorite is an alloy frame High Power with a Detective Slide... 15 + 1.

It's lighter and less bulky than the CZ P-01... 14 + 1.

 

This summer I'm really enjoying the tiny Sig P238 or the P938... both are 7 +1. The .380 P238 shoots better for me, but I am most proficient with the High Power which features SFS (Hammer Down Cocked and Locked). I prefer a single action to DA or DA/SA.

 

I've also grown fond of minimalist Kydex single clip holsters (Vedder Light-Tuck) rather than the Hybrid Kydex-Leather two clip holster such as Cross Breed and Alien Gear. I perceive better retention with a full molded holster. A similar style in leather would also work for me.


Life is a cooperative venture... That's what makes it work.

My favorite is a Sig P229 RX. Unfortunately it's rarely practical so more often I'm carrying an FNS9C IWB and S&W BG .380 pocket.

I carry my P224, I don't think there is a hammer Sig I don't own (in 9mm) and a few of their strikers but I'll wait for the hammer style P365 before I buy it.  

My P229-CS from the 80's (I think) shoots better but I don't need to shoot 100 feet with a carry gun.

Another vote for P365.  Looking forward to getting a P365XL frame to put on it.

Late spring through early fall weather I carry my LCPII in the pocket.  Rest of the year I carry either my XDs .45 or my ( new to me ) S&W J frame model 36.

That's a pic from the interwebs. My hand is bigger. The barrel end of the gun is at the first joint of my index finger(like it is to the middle finger in the pic) when I hold the gun like that.

Went from Beretta Nano to Kahr CM9 to G43 and now the SIG P365 either AIWB or bellyband. For jacket weather I love my HK VP9SK

Now it's a P365 I bought from another IC member in the "For Sale" section of this forum! Wonderful little gun 100% flawless in a few hundred rounds at the range. It did have the older-style striker which I replaced just as a precaution.

Still G21 in a Serpa paddle OWB. 2 spare mags fobus paddle opposite side. All weather all seasons. In summer just a t-shirt a little to large works fine. No complaints.

In the summer a Kimber Ultra Tactical .45 in a Wright Leather Works OWB pancake holster. In the winter time a Kimber Ultra Tactical .45 in a Wright Leather Works OWB pancake holster with a Sig P938 in my parka pocket until I can get to the Kimber. I don't understand why people have to change guns with the seasons, I just add in the colder months.

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.
