      Which handgun do you carry the most and why?

      I carry the S&W 3913 9mm the most out of my collection followed by the Glock 19 or 23.

      Not a big fan of the 9 but I have carried a Smith 915 and Beretta 92 in the past occasionally.The majority then and always now is a Colt Commander 45,and on occasion a fullsize HK USP45.

      Is there something wrong with a 9mm? I was always told it was a decent round with the right load because I have a Kimber CDP 2 .45acp that I love a lot and maybe I should upgrade to a .45acp since I can handle it well. I am just slower with follow up shots on targets with a bigger round.

      Sig P238 because its beautiful, accurate(incredible sites for a pocket pistol), and small enough to operate normally.

      50/50 split between S&W M&P .40 Shield and SA XDs .45 - both dependable, low profile and light.

      No,the 9 is a good round with a variety of loads.I had to carry a 9 while in LE and did carry concealed some because my other 9 was my smallest gun,but I'm not a big fan of it.I just believe with some others the 45 is a better round.I can shoot a 45 just as fast as most any caliber but I don't run short guns,Commander size is as short as I go.When I was shooting combat matches I ran an early SA milspec slightly modified against compensated 38Supers,and I won enough that 2 years in a row I took the yearly "Top Gun" trophy.That was 15 years ago,I'm out of shape now.

      Detonics Scoremaster .45 ACP, most of the time, or Sig 229 in 40 S&W.

      I switch between my Defender (which now sports CT Laser Grips) and my S&W stainless .357 640 (shown with the Barami Hip Grip stocks). Sorry for the crappy pics.

      One of my gen3 Glock 23's which I have modified to fit my personal likes. It fits well for both open and concealed carry, wears well when carried all day, I shoot it well, and it's a .40S&W.

      What modification did you make as I own one and next to my bed is a Gen Glock 23 with meprolights on it. I love the G23 but find the recoil a bit snappy.

      Currently I switch between my Ruger Sp101 in .357 magnum or my M&P 9c. But if I am wearing a coat or jacket I will carry my S&W 629 in .44 Magnum.

      I have Trijicon night sights (GL-01, all green), a smooth faced trigger, the Glock 3.5 connector (part #00135 from GlockParts.com), a 6 pound trigger spring from GlockParts.com, and have done the 25 cent trigger job. I also shaped the trigger safety so that when depressed, it is flush with the trigger's face. A butt plug finishes the job.

      The trigger returns a digitally measured 4 pounds 14 ounces to 5 pounds with a crisp letoff and a more distinct reset. I've made these same mods to my other gen3 Glock 23 and my gen3 Glock 19.
