How do you figure someone will find out who you are and recognize you on the streets of Orygun and ask you if you're carrying a gun?

Glock 43 loaded with Gold Dots in a Vedder 'Light Tuk' holster positioned IWBA and an extra mag IWBA on the left.

Gen 4 G19 in an Archangel IWBA when the mood strikes me. Ahud horizontal mag carrier.

I see the question as not quite complete. When I see "what are you carrying these days" I have to think my entire daily defensive loadout. Starts with Sig P320, compact frame, in .40S&W. It has the 12+1 compact magazine, and I carry 2 spare FS mags (with spacers to fit the compact frame) with 14rds each of Cor-Bon Pow'rball. I have also added a Hogue Handall slip-on grip as I have Hogues on about everything that gets carried on the regular. Left front pocket has the NAA Black Widow in .22WMR as my tiny BUG. Additionally I carry a ProTech Doru automatic (one of the few lefty designed auto knives), as well as a Fenix UC 35 flashlight, what I consider one of hte most important defensive tools one can carry. It will cook a squirrel in a tree at 30 yds, but is nice because it is rechargeable and uses the same micro USB as my phone, which I also consider part of my defensive load.

Seems like a lot but I have to make up for being the OFWG somehow...

I would add that on days I need something a bit more svelte the Ruger LC9sPro is a nice little carry piece. Thinnest 9mm on the market, carry it with the extended 8+1, and have a ProMag 10rd in addition. I would add it has the nicest factory trigger I have ever felt. I went to the LGS to buy a Shield, saw the Ruger in the case next to it (the Pro had been on the market just a couple of weeks) and compared the 2 so that I knew I did my due diligence. Shield went back in the case, the Ruger went home with me.

Kimber stainless II full size 1911 .45 in an Alessi talon+ IWB holster. Spare mag in the front pocket. I carry at work and this is functional and comfortable. Pretty much the same setup for the last 15 years or so.

Microbes can mess you up worse than a 157 grain JHP.
The only way to be safe these days is triple-bagging.

Yeah, the "Davis Double-DD" (extra D for a double-dose of pimpin') and I are pretty awesome. For sure a family hairloom. My 7yr old boy may need it for running his post-apocalyptic dilapidated whorehouse in a few decades. I hope he'll brandish it with gusto and flourish.

Fer realz, I used to carry a compact 1911. After too many failure-to-fire for riding the thumb safety (lifting the meat of my hand off the grip safety) I decided to do the unthinkable and go Glock. Now I have a G23 and G22, both converted to 9mm, and both 100% reliable after sorting out the conversion. I mostly carry the G22, having chopped the grip to take G19 mags. I also ruined it further by getting rid of finger humps, thumb humps, notching sides of grip to rip out mags, and stippling. Why I carry such a turd when ai own a Davis Double-DD is a fair question. I don't have a satisfactory answer. What can I say. The derringer is a safe queen.

Manual labor work days (more of them than not) SIG 2022 TACOPS in 40 Smith on strong side with a second in briefcase with Osprey suppressor as backup. Wear three 12 round mags weak side loaded with Hornady Critical Duty. The suppressed briefcase 2022 has five spare mags in fast access velcro side pouch.

Non manual work days (seeing clients, doctors, church, family, etc) 45 acp SIG 1911 Target from SIG Custom Shop strong side with tritium front sight, 325 pound trigger, ambi safety and more with SIG 1911 Double Nickle Compact as backup in small of back. Have two ten round McCormick ten round mags weak side. Use 185 Grain Hornady Critical Defense in both. If carry briefcase drop a SIG 1911 TACOPS TB with Osprey can in bottom.

No matter what's up, handguns only job is to stop fight fast or get me to my rifle. Keep long gun in truck, strategically placed around home and work. If not quite so cumbersome my SIG P220 with red dot, cowitnessed iron sights in 10mm would likely be a contender for primary carry. When in nostalgic mood been known to carry a Hi Power with Hornady Critical Defense just for variety. Always keep a wheel gun under seat of all trucks out of habit.

Glock 17 Gen 4 with 2 spare mags and a NAA Sidewinder in .22WM with holstergrip.

Ammo for the Glock is Ruger ARX or SIG V-Crown 124gr. JHP.

I carry a 17 because LE in my area carries 17 for most part, so if ever the need arises, I can use their ammo and mags.
