    Previously I would have responded with either a HK P7, or Walther P5. However, I recently came to the sad realization that if you actually use your CCW in a shooting, it will get taken away from you and you will have to fight a bureaucracy to get it back. More likely that not, it will get lumped in with other guns for destruction. To do that to either of these two fine pistols is an atrocity.

    Changing to a different mindset, I wouldn't use anything I'd consider a favorite for CCW. I've come to think of my CCW as a tool, and a disposable one at that, and plan on trading them in every 4 years.

    I voted G26 because that's what I use. It's concealable, reliable, shoots dead nuts, and easy to clean. I couldn't ask for anything more in a 9mm. HOWEVER, I'm thinking very seriously of adding a Taurus .45ACP 24/7 to the family soon and my choice may change if it happens.

    92fs

    After getting a new (to me) 92FS to shoot more economically than the 96's I carry and still have the same platform I feel comfortable with the 9mm as a minimum CCW round. After all 25 years ago I carried a BHP as an investigator in a department that issued the model 10 S&W and like most others never had an issue with it. I guess I just like the older tried and true Beretta platform. Plenty of ammo with three mags and one in the pipe.

    Glock 26 here. Lots of good choices there, but I have to go with the Austrian.

    just bought a Springfield EMP 1911 and love the thing. Great accuracy and smooth action for a 3" barrel. I recommend it..kind of pricey but worth every penny. It's the top dog 9mm if you ask me. Hits on the money, great to shoot, tritium night sights by Trijicon, 3 magazines, holster and double mag holster come with it. It's a good looking pistol too.

    A few years ago I might have said I like my Glock 19 the best, but now I think it will have to be my
    FNP9.

    I see several people like the G26/27/33. No doubt that it is a great carry gun. I owned a 26 and a 27 at one point. I carried them year round. I wonder at those that change guns in winter.
    Perhaps it is due to the weather here in Phoenix. My friends and I donít change guns in the winter. Our clothing doesnít change much. A good holster combined with the appropriate cover garment allows one to carry the same gun year round.
    If a gun is good enough for winter, its good enough for summer. Why sacrifice? Is it a mater of convenience or a lack of ability to conceal based on body type?

    I'd say the latter, from someone who changes guns based on weather. I carry a USPc in the winter because I have more clothing on to conceal it. I can even carry OWB due to my jacket. In the summer it's a bit too big and the handle sticks out too far to conceal under a t-shirt printing quite a bit, so it's strictly G30 IWB in the summer. It only goes one way for this reason, and this reason alone, though. I could - and probably will - carry my G30 in the winter, but I can't carry my USPc in the summer.

    You are questioning one's reason to switch guns. If it were cold in the winter where you live wouldn't you rather carry a G19 over a G26 if it could be just as easily concealed? You'd gain a five more round mag capacity if nothing else.

    Just one man's opinion.

    I don't switch based on season, but perhaps I would if I had more than one gun.

    I assure you the difference in temperature from Phoenix to NW Ohio is not only drastic but changes the whole dynamic of concealed. There are days where I could conceal a Mossberg 500 12 G, with a 28" barrel in my wardrobe. I guess my point is, if you can conceal it, you have more options.

    I should have added my carry in the post. I primarily carry a 4 1/4" 1911. I have for about 20 years. I try other guns from time to time. I have carried a G22, G23, G26, S&W686P. I carry mostly IWB with some belt and shoulder.
    I think that people often choose their gun around fashion as opposed to clothing around the gun. There isn’t anything wrong with that, it is just a different philosophy. Some people want to look good. They adopt a fashion that enhances their form. They choose fashion over preparedness.
    I wear a button down tucked in shirt to work most days. I wear jeans and a t-shirt after work. I always carry a spare mag. It should be noted that I am fat, with no fashion sense and have a reputation for jamming guns. I carry a “full size” auto no matter my dress (with the caveat on formal wear when the fashion choice isn’t mine) or the weather.
    So this long diatribe comes to this. Do you wear a summer gun because you choose to, or because you feel you have to due to wardrobe? If you want to carry a larger gun, why not adjust your wardrobe/holster instead of the gun?

    I personally know people who wear a "summer gun", in my experience, all of these people have a smaller framed body. I myself am 5'10" about 180 lbs. These people coundn't hide a full frame 1911 if their life depended on it (dressed like they are in the middle of the summer). Most of these people that I am referring to carry (a 380 or 9mm, one carries a 40) smaller caliber guns throughout the hot months, and carry their larger guns when it is possible. I would agree with you that it would be rather strange, almost silly, to change your carry weapon for fashion, or anytiime when you don't have to.

    Thumbs up Ruger SR9

    Don't overlook the Ruger SR9 I think it's one of the best 9mm's on the market. Personally I think it's erery bit as good as a Glock or Springfield's SD and they cost on average less than either of the previous two.

    Been rather attached to the new Walther P5C, but the High Power is a classic that's hard to beat.

    I voted Glock 26 because thats what I have, and I love it....not only is it small and light, but for me it fits great, doesnt have much kick, is very quick to put on target, I shoot very well with it, it takes no time to clean and is about as easy as a semi can get to take apart....for me, someone who wants one gun to carry and shoot alot(400 rounds a week or so), its my idea of perfect...plus you have to love the availability of stuff like sites, holsters, mags, all kinds of stock upgrades like slide releases and trigger springs, all for very decent prices and readily available.....all of that aside, its all about the shooting, and the Glock does that very well.

    None of the above - I have a Taurus PT-709. Works fine for me.
