Very nice collection.

I carry in the woods or on the trail against possible problems with four-legged predators, so my carry needs are a bit different. I prefer a 4" barrel on my woods carry revolvers, since I may have to shoot a bit farther out than common self-defense against bad guy distances. Also find that my follow up shots are faster and more accurate with the 4" barrels. Snubbies are great for up close and personal distances, but not so great when I may need to take a longer shot and they are definitely harder to control for follow up shots with bear loads. They make great bad guy guns, but I prefer more barrel length for four-legged stuff. Then, too, a 4" barrel revolver makes for a pretty decent range gun.

Pretty tough to beat my SP for packability and it's what I carry most of the time.


When out west, though, or when I get reports of a problem bear in the neighborhood, I go right the 44 mag Redhawk.

Yes I mix it up when it comes to cc. I like to carry a combo of firearms at the same time. too.

I don't rotate pistols, I practice with and carry my Sig P320 Compact 95% of the time, my Taurus 907 the other 5%. When in the woods it is a different story, there I switch to my P226 40S&W or my 4" GP100, I only go to my 5" S&W 629 if I know I'm in BIG Bear country.

S&W 642 in the front pocket pretty much sums up my rotation. I have IWB's for my SP or P94 but usually just take the 642 in a pocket holster and I'm good. Forget it's there most of the time. When I exercise walk I'll either put the 642 in a Pistol Wear belly band or throw my NAA 22 Mag in my pocket in a pocket holster. Depends where I am walking and my mood.

Just my .357 LCR. I don't carry much, and don't get enough practice with it, or the .22 LCR. I should do more.

I disagree with people carrying a variety of guns. Being absolutely comfortable with a gun, no thought or hesitation, is important. There is a reason for the saying, "beware the man who only has one gun". It will be a natural extension of his hand and eyes.

I think the issue of one gun or rotating a number of guns is a personal call. Both approaches have their merits.

For me, as long as I limit my carry guns to one type of gun, instead of mixing up types of guns, I'm good. Sticking with one type of gun gives me the most confidence. For instance, no problem at all with mixing double action revolvers because they all operate exactly the same. I very much enjoy shooting these guns in DA mode, too, and that is also a confidence builder. The DA revolver may be old school in this day and age of high capacity bottom feeders, but it is still the best choice for my needs.

In a pinch, I could use an SA revolver for self-defense. In fact, I'm every bit as fast and maybe even more accurate with the SA for rapid fire, but the big glitch is ONLY if I can use both hands. I am horribly slow shooting an SA revolver with one hand, plus I fatigue, quickly, since I lack the hand strength to thumb the hammer when shooting one handed. Two hands, good to go; one hand and I'm at a huge disadvantage.

Mixing revolvers and semi-autos is definitely a no no for me. I don't even like changing gears this way on my range trips. Oh, I like semi autos and I do shoot them, but my needs dictate magnum cartridges in a carry gun and, with only a few exceptions, that's revolver country. Besides, at heart, I am a revolver shooter. I could probably be happy just shooting revolvers. Won't be selling off my autoloaders, but I never head to the range without a revolver or two and the majority of range trips for me are revolver, only.

I have alternate resources available but as a rule I don't rotate my carry gun, (Springfield Armory XDS .3.3 .45 Auto).

I've been carrying this particular weapon for the last three years, 24/7.

However, I do rotate the type of holster I use with it from time to time. I use both OWB and IWB Alien Gear holsters...really like them!

Below are my every day carry system since I'm in T-shirt 300 days a year . I quit carrying my Glock 27 since I got my Glock 23C and my S&W 642 is my pocket bug gun if I wear a jacket .

My 44-40 Vaquero and hunting knife backup guns when I go hunting or walk in bear country . I have 2 loads for it . Level #1 loads are 750 fps and my level #3 loads meet or exceed the 44 mag loads . I think 2003 the last time I hunted .

I carry the Shield 9mm all the time, but that might change soon if my Shield 45 keeps on the way it is. 240 rd so far without a jam. And it fits the same holster.

I carried a pocket .380 until it broke on me (Taurus PT738). Sending that back in for warranty work. I'm carrying a PT111G2 now. I prefer a pocket pistol right now until I can loose enough weight to make IWB a semi-comfortable possibility. (Down from size 46 pants to 44 in the last 2.5 weeks! Dunlap be gone!!!)

Even still, I don't see me having an actual rotation. I'm proficient with every thing I have, but I'm really good with only the two listed above.

Congrats on weight loss and good luck going lower. Set a goal and then give yourself a prize when you get there. I used a weight loss app on my phone which gives you instant feedback.

Glock 30S (45ACP) for me most everywhere I go, with a S&W 442 (38+P) in pocket when wearing a jacket.

Not much has changed for me, my EDC is still mt P320C but with a 10 round mag and two 14 round backups.My more discrete carry is now a S&W M&P9 Shield W/CT Laser and my outdoor carry is an M&P9 with Buffalo Bore Penetrator or equal ammo, 18 in and two 17 round backups.

I rarely carry. Used to use a snub Ruger SP101, but finally told myself it's just too heavy (28 ounces loaded) and bulky to carry comfortably. Recently went to the NAA Guardian 32. It's an all stainless .32 Auto DAO pistol, weighs 15 ounces loaded. Now I'm not only comfortable with what I carry, I'm also comfortable carrying it.

Pretty much Sig P938 (9 MM) strong side front pocket in a DeSantis pocket holster most all the time. The other option is a Sig P320 Subcompact (40 S&W) in a Crossbreed Supertuck IWB holster. When I exercise walk in gym shorts or sweat pants a Beretta Pico in .380 in a pocket holster
