    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.

    Fullsize 1911 in 45acp in an ETW iwb holster. Not always the easiest to carry but it's what I have and I shoot it well and that's what's important.

    Of the 3 Springfield XD's I have all in 40.... I carry the sub-compact version. My backup is my XDM compact. Wiaiting for the XDS (single stack), for easier carry as its thinner. This may be awhile as I understand.......

    Can I ask why you only use one at the range? So the other one is dependable? In case needed?
