What is everyone on here carrying these days?

I feel like I’ve known a handful of you guys for years now and I can’t help wondering...if you care to share- what is everyone carrying these days?

I’ll start- I mostly ccw a Gen3 Glock 19 in a Foxx IWB holster with 124-gr+P Rem Golden saber JHPs and in the summertime a S&W 442 Airweight in a Bianchi leather IWB with the old FBI load, Federal 158-gr+P SWCLHP.

Smith & Wesson M&P 340 with Hornady Critical Defense 110gr +P .38s. Somewhere around 15oz or so loaded. I’m using Galco IWB, Bianchi OWB, and DeSantis pocket carry depending on conditions & circumstances.

I guess I’m older school than you older fools, but if that can’t get me out of a jam and to a rifle, I should’ve just brought the rifle.

Either a Glock 19 (3rd gen) or S&W Shield .45. Depends on circumstances and mood. Both are loaded with Hydra-Shoks.

In "certain situations", I'll slip my Sterling Arms .22 pocket pistol into, what else, my pocket. Better than nothing.

Yea, more than once, whole range stopped shooting and waited for the blow up to occur.
The fire ball is spectacular as well.
I put in plugs then my head phones.
About like max 357 Mag from a four inch barrel.

What I carry depends on the pants.
If I can, I wear these:
http://www.concealedcargo.com/
And a S&W 3913 9mm fits perfectly.
(Would rather carry my .45ACP Glock 21SF, which also fits perfectly , but the pants have no “hard” trigger cover, so if I carry the Glock, can’t have a round in the chamber.
3913 de-cocking lever resolves that issue.

if I am wearing pants/shorts w/ normal pockets, a S&W 340PD .357mag., in a pocket holster.

I used to be a 1911 guy. Either a full size 10mm, or a 4" short grip .45 IWB at 5:00 in a KingTuk. About a year or two ago, when the mob style attacks started to happen, I started to think that I may not be defending/ evading just one attacker, but maybe an entire group. So now my primary is a Glock 29 in a Cozy Partner AIWB, or a FNX-45 in a custom T5 Sidecar AIWB. Both are carried with at least one extra 15 rnd mag on my person, and another in my vehicle.


Coming from 5:00 IWB, it was shocking how comfortable and concealable that (huge) FNX-45 is when AIWB in a well designed custom rig with a 'claw' and 'wedge'. It disappears under a draped shirt. The "wedge" on the Sidecar does get a bit irritating when seated for hours at a time, but the smaller G29 in the cozy partner is all day comfy either standing or driving. No worry of printing when bending over either.



The G29 is the powerhouse, but the FNX is much softer/ faster/ easier shooting.

10mm is Buffalo Bore 180 gr JHP at 1350 fps (1230-1240 fps actual out of the shorter G29 barrel)
.45 is 230 gr 875 fps Golden Sabers

a yugo tokarev M57 with a 72 round drum magazine made from a PPSH-41 drum.

it's kinda big in the shoulder holster, so i had to use one of my ex-wife's 28G bras to keep it steady.

Got a big drawer stuffed to the brim with holsters and not happy with most as far as concealment. Quit IWB and now messing around with high riding pancake belt slides, I can draw quicker with everything OWB.
LCP in a cheap belt slide I got at the big show in Tulsa gets the nod most of the time. Loaded with the hot solid copper Cor bons. Extra mag in pocket and two more in a pouch on the belt. F-ing leather "creaks" when moving driving me crazy.
New pancake holster for the mod 2 3.3 45 has arrived, will be checking it out soon

I usually carry a G17 loaded with 115 gr bonded gilded sabers or a G22 loaded with 165 gr Federal tactical HP or a Colt Government Model 380 auto with Corbon 90 gr gold dot HP. And carry an extra mag or two just depends on what clothing I’m wearing.

G-27 in a DeSantis Pocket Tuk. I wear as IWB, best all day wear, conceals well, 'appendix' modified cross draw position. I never carry an extra mag, I figure 9 rounds of .40 outa solve any pressing situataions I would encounter.

If I am out hiking or whatever then I might carry other rigs or gun choices.

When Im out in my property or jeeping in northern MI, I have an entirely different concept of carry.

I typically have my Ruger Toklat in a Bianchi X15 and a 2x2x2 pouch on my belt for absolute reliability and penetration. If I know Im kinda-sorta going to be around other people, I have my MKVII .44 in a VHS knock off, mainly for increased controllability for rapid follow ups, balanced with two extra mags on the other side (to even weight out on both sides of the rig). I can fire that thing off like my 10mm 1911, shockingly tame for a .44 mag. The MKVII is concealable under an over shirt. The Toklat is....not.

The .44 loads are 240 gr @ 1300 fps Sig V-crowns.

The .454 loads are 240 gr @ 1900 fps XTP's

It really varies these days depending upon my mood, but it always revolves around the John Moses Browning single action auto with left side thumb safety theme.

So, either Inglis Hi Power in a hip hugger low profile on my belt, or an Auto Ordnance stock 1911 in a vertical carry custom shoulder rig, both under a jacket.

A stainless CZ.75b with walnut grips will take the place of the Inglis once I find the one that talks nice and loud to me.

My pocket pistol is always a Sig P238.

If I'm going somewhere where jewelry is required, I have a nice custom leather hip rig for a stainless Taurus 8 shot .357 wheelgun. I LOVE that thing, as anyone who's been to James's FAL shoots knows.
I'd try crossdraw if it didn't look so Messkin buckaroo badass wannabe
No newfangled Grocks for me though. I'd shoot my balls off with one of those damn things.

I ain't got no secrets me. Just looking at me screams 2A, so most expect I'm gunned up anyway.

I get your point of risking opsec, but if there is concern regarding the discussion of Constitutionally protected activities amongst our fellow Americans then...
