Ahh...I see the issue.

Well, Nails; sometimes your favorite handgun Caliber to shoot may not be you choice for EDC.

In my case, I enjoy the .44 mag in revolver and 10mm in autoloader, but prefer the 9mm as EDC because of its platform's smaller size.

My .44 Mag is a Dan Wesson large frame revolver with a 8" pipe and my 10mm is an IAI Javelina, based on a 1911 Longslide ( 7" Barrel).

So, unless I wish to look like a 1970s Porn Star with either of them cannons stuck in Appendix Carry; my other choice is the CW9, which is only slightly larger than a PPK/s.

Screw CC if your state allows OC.....
With OC you can carry a larger, easier to handle weapon, and typically one with a much larger capacity.

That said, I prefer to OC my Steyr M40 in .40 call (typically easy ammo to find when the more popular 9mm, .45, etc are gone), or my .357 magnum revolver.

If I feel CC is more appropriate to the occasion, Ill carry either my Colt Government model .380, or the same .357 revolver I OC.

Kahr CW9 is a great CCW pistol!

I prefer 45 ACP, and had been carrying a Glock 30SF, but the size an weight was a bit of a pain in some situations so I carried the CW9 more frequently.

Last year I picked up a Kahr P45 and a Glock 30S; both of which make it easier to carry a .45 ACP.

I'd love to carry a Glock 43X or 48, but due to the stupid California pistol roster people are selling these 43X and 48 for as much as $1500!

Mine is 9mm. Whether in CC or otherwise. I pocket carry a Kahr CM9. When I want a larger gun, I carry my Glock19 Gen4. I also have a Ruger SR9, Ruger SR9c, Star M30, and Star Firestar, All in 9mm. I do have a 1911 in 45ACP.

Yup, I like it for its DAO simplicity. Just draw, point and click.

Much like a DA revolver; no safeties, no de-cocker, no nothing of the sort. Your brain is the Safety.

Some people dislike the DAO trigger travel; but I find it convenient, from a safety POV.

Also, in an adrenaline fueled state, I think that the DA trigger travel would be the least of concerns.

.45 ACP. Carried an issued one for many years, and it remains my overall favorite auto loader cartridge for defense. It is the only auto loader option that I wouldn’t feel undergunned with if all I could find was ball ammo. My scandium frame S&W 1911 Commander weighs 28 ounces unloaded and carries very well. That single action trigger lets me put those nine 230 grain ashtrays right where I want them to go.

I tend to go with a Glock for lightweight.

I had a Sig P239 in 357 Sig, but it wasn't as small or as light as the 9mm version and the trigger was terrible.

I now prefer the subsonic loads for carry as they are a lot easier on the ears indoors or in the car.

147 grain 9mm, 180 grain 40 S&W and 230 grain 45 ACP.

Usually a Glock 33 with a factory Glock 27 barrel in it.

I might get one of those single stack 9mm Glocks.

The original market aim for the Glock 29 and Glock 30 was off duty police that carried the Glock 20 and Glock 21 on duty, so they could carry duty ammo and use the larger magazines.

The Glock 29 carries like a brick and the 3.78" barrel kind of defeats the 10mm velocity.

MAYBE if you wanted some 200 grain bullets, but there are lighter weight, more advanced bullets.

You can get away with using 40 S&W ammo in the Glock 29 if you have to, due to available ammo.

Maybe some heavy bullets for bear protection.

it still carries like a brick for everyday carry.
