I love my 1911s, it I know without a doubt my P365 or HK Compact will go boom when the trigger is pulled. Itís easy to say, itís the way you grip it, limp wrist, etc, but when it comes down to nerves and seconds, I want the gun to fire.

I carry my PMR 30 rds extremely light and very accurate, I stopped carrying my normal EDC’s as I very comfortable with the KelTec, and yes I know some will laugh at this, but mine is very dependable and accurate to 50 yrds

NAA semi auto in 32NAA. Smallest most reliable gun with good power and really deep hide capability.

I got a Sig P365 and am really happy with it. Need to get some more range time with it, but overall a great carry gun.

I got to mess around with a family members 365 and really enjoyed how accurate it was and the way it felt.

I plan on getting one but not until i get to compare it to a Springfield Hellcat

Really love my Para Ordnance 14-45 Black Ops but I have not spent a lot of time or money finding a good holster that will allow me to comfortably carry it well concealed.

Because of my failing in that I carry my SCCY CPX2 in a Crossbreed IWB holster very comfortably. I shoot it accurately out to 15 yards and have 20 rounds on me with the spare mag in my pocket.

Cheap, light and comfy for me. Its on me anytime I leave the house and am not going to a customer location that prohibits weapons (industrial).

Sometimes I will slip a Ruger LCR 38 SPL in my front pocket if my clothes fit that better for the day. 15 ounces before loading it up.

I would like to get my hands on a Sig 365 or that HK P7 to try, but I just do not like the feel of a Glock.

Everyone shoots different pistols better than another. If I had to pick a pistol to have for forever and always it would be a Beretta model 92. Best shooting pistol I've ever shot. Worst pistol I've ever shot? Glock of any sort. Some guys might be able to shoot them well. I'm not one of those guys.

If Iím just running to town I wear my Glock 42 (.380) with an extra mag. If Iím going to any big cities or traveling far, I wear my Glock 32 (357SIG) with two extra mags. Both of these are
ďLights-outĒ accurate.
The wife keeps a S&W M&P EZ .380 handy also.

I carry a Glock 43 with a Crimson Trace Laser. Great compact gun, very easy to conceal and not too heavy. Canít beat this gun for the price or reliability.

I canít imagine any reason why an LEO would carry something they have to hide besides a back up gun. I also mentioned MY 19s. Not concerned with what anyone else carries, but I have no use for my 19s anymore. Keeping a couple due to mag availability, but theyíve been safe queens so far.

Wife won a S&W EZ in 380 ( the 9 wasnt out yet ) It's the only auto she can rack the slide on & she's not strong enough to shoot the Lady Smith 38 I bought her accurately..... Long story short I boght another S&W EZ 380 for my vehicle so If she is ever in my truck she has access to what she is comfortable with..... I just carry the lil 38 in my pocket, but looking for a high capacity carry

Mistake on my part, should have read 45 or even 19x if you like colored version

I was gonna order a 17 till I played with a 45 with an optic

Not sure how I got 29 out of 45.

Wasnít trying to come across as brash. I spoke strictly from my viewpoint for my own usage. I didnít put down your opinion either, as itís just as valid as mine is.

As for the 45 I can’t stand them, just like I hate the 19X as a carry pistol. Doesn’t make it a bad pistol or anything else. Just not my cup of tea. Personally if I want the grip of a larger pistol I want the barrel length too. The grip length is the hard part to conceal. Same reason I carry the 48 over the 43X.

Well, that makes a little more sense. The 45/19x is probably a little better option for a duty pistol, although Iíd still take a 17 over them, but it dam sure wonít make the 48 obsolete.

I think thereís probably a place for both guns, but the 48 being ~.25Ē thinner and still able to hold 15 rounds with shield mags makes it a lot better option for concealing. That .25Ē makes a huge difference and definitely sets the 48 apart from other options.

I didnít get the 29 comment either but makes sense now. Iíve got a 45 and 43x. And for carry the 43x is much better IMO. The size is just about perfect. If you like the 19 size the CZ P10c is great also. I like my glocks a lot but the CZ fits my hand like a glove and points and shoots more natural for me.
