    Excuse me, you carry for what you expect to be the threat . I can carry an RPG but maybe I don't need that much power just what we need. If I am dealing with snakes make get a small shot round. Do not try to hit the tail of the snake, hit the head.You have to rememer thah.

    What I carry is usually mood/job specific, but of all the handguns I own, my fave for the belt and EDC is my G23 with 9mm conversion barrel. I carry 135gr + P HP's and love it. I changed out to a ss 15lb guide rod and spring, 3.5lb Ghost trigger, and an extended slide stop for giggles. With that heavier conversion barrel, there is no, and I mean none, muzzle flip or noticeable recoil. I can stay on target for all 15 rounds. I keep one in the barrel and with 3 15rnd mags, that's a lot of heat. In the case and under the seat is the .40 barrel and a .357 barrel for it, with extra ammo for all three calibers.

    *** FYI ... I just bought my first ever Sig. A P229 (no rail) in .357 Sig. Stainless steel upper and lower, factory Sig 'Nite' sights. It was an estate trade my LGS picked up. Never fired. Well, I fired it and I absolutely love it. So, it may, in short order, negate everything I just wrote above about the Glock! I have a .40 barrel coming for it from the factory, and am waiting to hear from them about a 9mm barrel for it, too. I never thought I'd gush on any of my weapons as much as I do my M&P45, but I tell you what, that Sig, in .357 Sig just moved me. It seemed the perfect mix of power, handling and feel on the hip. I may be a Sig whore now ... damnit ...

    Actually, you should be carrying what YOU are comfortable and confident with to address any threat. What good is a .40 or .45 if it's too much for the person to handle? NADA, NIX, NOTHING, ZERO.

    I agree with that M&P comment, too, except mine are full size. If you get the chance & the money, try out an FNX40. Great shoulder rig. A little much for IWB but do-able... I find it to fit, feel and handle alot like my MP40 ... just with a hammer and a little less muzzle flip.

    I carry a few different caliber guns. 45ACP 9MM and 380,
    I carry shoulder holster and pocket holster all guns are loaded one in the chamber with safety on. I feel this is the only way to carry in any holstered. Loaded cocked and safety on. I do not understand why you would carry any other way.

    I carry a couple different caliber guns. .40 cal., and .380 cal. OWB in the cold months, and front pocket in the warm months. Although I have a hammer fired DA SA, a striker fired DA, and a hammer fired DA. I carry all of them the same way. One in the chamber, safety off. This is why they developed certain types of handguns. No matter which firearm I am carrying, they come out firing immediately. No hammer to pull back, no safety to take off, just shoot. If you have a proper holster, there is no need IMHO, to have the safety on. Personally, I do not want to have to take the safety off, before firing. Just something extra to do. If your referring to 1911 type firearms, or other SA firearms........I don't understand why someone would want to carry "locked and cocked" with the safety on? Just seems to make extra work. It seems that the most appealing aspect of that type of carry, is that you always have that SA trigger, from start to finish. I am not knocking 1911 firearms. It's a matter of personal preference, I know.....and they are beautiful firearms, but I think that there are alot of shooters out there, like myself, that carry without a safety.......... ...I do not understand why you would carry any other way.. .

    As long as you train to disengage the safety while drawing... and train to do that, I don't think it's a factor. It comes down to muscle memory and training. I usually lean towards DA/SA with a decocker... but I understand those who feel more comfortable with a safety... especially carrying cocked & locked with a SA trigger.

    "You will most likely NOT rise to the occasion... but revert back to your level of training."

    I carry a SigP250SC.45 IWB all times when outside the house, next to me inside the house, and lock it in car when at places not allowed by law(most of the time).

    Howdy,

    Glock 23 .40S&W in a Glock sport holster @ 3:00.

    I'm currently on vacation in Alaska and I have packed my G23 all over the Kenai Peninsula.

    The surprising part of my vacation is that I have not meet or seen a person that was packin' heat Yes I do know how to spot someone that's packin'.

    Paul

    I carry a Diamondback DB380 in a Remora IWB holster. I wear cargo shorts and cargo pants a lot, and carry the DB380 in the front-right cargo pocket.

    Used to carry my S&W 3913 (not the lady Smith!) OWB but I recently purchased the Kahr PM9 (which I'm having jamming issues with) to carry but because of that issue I still carry the 3913 in winter or "jacket weather." Bought the PM9 to carry in warm "less clothing weather" or year round.
    Until I figure out what's up with the Kahr, it'll be my trusted 3913 (bought in 1989!) and the reason to carry...Because I can!

    I bought a Kahr PM9 a couple of years ago and never had any issues with it. Did you buy the gun new or used? I guess there's a bad apple in every barrel. Ussally the Kahrs are prety dependable.

    Bought it new from Bass Pro. I read the Kahr was a pretty good firearm so even with a stiff price compared to other pocket guns I went ahead and bought it. So far I've only put around 100 round through it so it's not broken in yet, starting to feel I got the lemon. I may just pack it up and send it back for a tune up, lol

    Must be a lemon, Your paying a couple of hundred dollars more for the Kahr compared to some of the other compact 9mm pistols. Kahr should make it right, What ammo were you useing? I've shot several brands out of mine with no issues ever. I've probably shot 500 to 600 rounds through mine.
