One of my Glocks, most often either my 19 or 26.
In the winter, when concealment is not as much of a issue, the 17 or 21.
Occasionally, my Chiefs special in a ankle rig.

Lately, I've been thinking seriously about picking up one of the new Para 45 LDA's.
I was fondling one at the NRA convention with Jack and Winn back in April, and I haven't been able to stop thinking about it since.

On a related note, what's your favorite CC holster?
I'm a holster whore. I received my license to carry in 1973, over the last 30 years I've collected boxes of holsters.
Most of which have not seen the light of day in years, some of which, I'm sure I don't even own firearms for anymore.

But my favorite is a Lou Alessi CQB

I'll be carrying my ParaOrdnance C6.45. It's heavy for such a small pistol, but it soaks up more recoil than the Kimber CDP ultra compacts do. The aluminum frame is nice for carry and I wouldn't mind dropping some weight from the C6.45, but I like shooting it (a LOT). Shooting the ultra-compact .45s with aluminum frames really starts to hurt after a couple hundred rounds.

I still haven't found a holster that I like. I'm up for any suggestions, though. I can't use a SOB holster because of Ohio's stupid "plain sight" requirement when driving. I don't like the polymer holsters, so I'm left with nylon or leather. Any recommendations?

I carry a hi-cap Russian Makarov as my main carry gun. I had a S&W 4516-1 that I carried for a while but ended up selling it (it was a good gun but I sold it to a good friend of mine). Eventually I will probably end up buying something else so that my makarov can go back to being a safe queen, but I like how the makarov handles and shoots.

Nova 9mm, but rechambered for the .100" longer case of the 356 TSW, using a handload, 55 grs, 2200 fps, 590 ft lbs. I smithed the Nova a lot, adding a beavertail frame tang, stippling, ambi safety, luminous sights, undercutting the trigger guard ala Firestar, adding a fingerrest to the mag, ala PPK, and moving the mag catch to the bottom, like a Ruger .22. Top rear of slide is slashed, like a Detonics, all corners are severly rounded off, Lexan grips were made for it. It's about a $3000 pistol, but it's the same size and wt of a steel Chief's .38 snub, with twice the power,and controlability, and it lays a lot 'flatter" in the Kydex front pants pocket rig. It's also a lot easier to carry spare ammo for, and 3x as fast to reload. The high velocity of this load, and the solid tin cast bullet make it AP, and at impact, it breaks into 3 segments. So it is one mean mutha, for a pocket gun.

Crap, I am like a women with shoes, but for me it is guns....

What I carry depends on several conditions
(1) Temp outside
(2) what I am wearing
(3) where I am going
(4) is my family with me
My carry weapons include
Beretta m21 22lr pistol (pocket gun)
S&W 640 357mag (full steel, not lightweight)
S&W 638 38sp airweight
Glock model 30 45acp
Glock Model 21 45acp
Now, I am not listing all of my handguns, just the ones I carry.
Now you are gonna ask me about why it is different if my family is with me.
Simple, I will not carry my 22lr if my family is with me. Not that the weapon will not do the deed, but I want to make sure without a doubt that the deed is done.

Takes an awful lot of practice to be reflexively good with tht many different feeling pistols. I stick to cocked and locked. Jim Cirillo, veteran of many scores of armed robber confrontations, on NYPD's Stakeout team, and also veteran of 19 gunfights, once forgot to work the pump of his 12 ga in a fight. If it could happen to him, it can happen to you.

I don't have much time for hand guns, however, I have my likes and dislikes. I do feel that the old saying is correct: "to each their own". My belief is that a weapon preference is like a tool, it changes with the job, environmental conditions, feeling of comfort and job to be completed. When confronted by a life threatening situation, I don't care what the brand, cal., and or type...I will use what is to my best advantage. If I am wrong, who but me will care? Jack

yeah, if you don't feel like your life is worth much. Personally, I disagree, and I vehemently think that the attacker should die on the spot,too.
