Gotta concider where
I have been carrying amy Sig p250 in 9mm with 124gr HST's. If I feel a need for something bigger i have my XD .45 compact with 10 rounds in and 26 more ready to go, aain 230 grain HST"s. Those bad boys will open up to almost an inch!!!!
My wife is a die hard fan of her S&W m&p .40c. And once again HST's, 180 grain.
I do love my Glock G17 too but thats more for the hunting trips, works well on a jack rabbit!!!!!!!!

I have TN HCP and I carry J-Frames exclusively. Usually a S&W640 or S&W 642 but I occasionally carry a Taurus 85ULBH. (I pocket carry as I am older and can wear suspenders without raising ridicule.) I own larger revolvers and pistols but they are not as practical for carry. I usually use a Disantis Pocket Holster.

Everyday carry I use the Beretta PX4 SC 9MM with one extra 13 rd. mag. When I want to "dress up" in my Sunday best it's my loyal Colt Commander .45 in a Gould & Goodrich paddle holster with two extra 8 rd. mags.

Laugh all you want... I carry a firestar (star) 45 acp. It is a sweet compact stainless lump of steel that is the most accurate and reliable gun I have ever shot! I also carry a Kimber Ultra Crimson Carry with the laser grips however I mostley carry that at night times because my firestar does not have night sights.
If you are not familiar with the firestar (star) from Spain... google it and try to find one. It is very heavy however there is hardly any recoil and it is SOOO accurate.
They were originally a very economical carry option (3" barrel) very similar to a 1911. I think they ran about $300 or 400 new back in the early to mid 80's. They are no longer manufactured and seem to be going up a bit in value.

I own, and have carried, a Star PD (.45 ACP compact). It is accurate and reliable.

That's why I prefer to carry some other compact .45, instead of the Star, when I need serious social protection.
I use the Star PD when nothing else is available. I do wish that there were some way of testing the sear and hammer-notch, short of destruction.

Find a tool and die guy and have em make ya one if possible. Buddy of mine did that a while back. Not easy to find parts of those Star pistols around here though.

Beretta PX4 Storm SC and Keltec PF9

Good suggestion! I'd thought of it before.

Also, the nearest decent gunsmith is near Seattle, 90 miles and a one-hour, $40.00 ferry ride away. We'd have to stay overnight in a hotel, both bringing in the job and retrieving it.
I think I'll let my daughter (or whomever she sells the gun to when I'm dead) worry about it. I've got an Officers'-Model-Size .45 for serious carry, besides the Star.

I usually carry a CZ75 but sometimes a Firestar M43.

If I ever get my permit from the state I'll carry my sig p239 9mm.
03-16-2009, 09:04 PM
I have just started carrying this last month after I got my permit and took a few classes. Right now I keep a new Ruger LCP on my person at all times. I got one of the first post recall guns that my gun shop got in. I have it loaded with Gold Dot HP

Time for me to update my response on this thread since my original one was almost two years ago when I was carrying my XD40.
I'm now carrying a Sig P229 SAS G2 9mm in a Galco Royal Guard holster. The P3AT still gets used for "special" circumstances.

I used to carry a Glock 19 9mm before I laid eyes on the FNP-45. I now don't leave home with my 45!

Presently I carry a 9mm CZ-75B...
