I don't, but when I did I tried several but always went back to the SP101. Why, small, reliable, hits where you point it, and all it takes to make it work is to point and pull the trigger.
If you can look at something and hit it, you're less likely to need a double stack.

1. Taurus Poly 605 in 357. OWB, light, concealable, never wanted to shoot it w/ 357 and 38+P is pretty equitable to 9mm with less round capacity.
2. Ruger LC9s front pocket carry. I’ve not held anything that feels better, and with a spare mag in my pocket giving me 14 rds, I feel comfortable with that.

Since I got my CHL in 1996, there have been many. Starting with:

1. Glock Gen 2 G17
2. Kahr K9
3. Para Ordnance P13 .45
4. Colt Stainless Commander .45
5. Browning Hi Power 9mm
6. Glock Gen 3 G19
7. Kimber Tactical Pro .45
8. S&W M&P Compact 9mm
9. S&W M&P FS 9mm
10. S&W M&P Compact .45
11. S&W M&P Shield 9mm
12. S&W M&P Shield .45

The Kahr was my ergonomic favorite, but had insurmountable feeding issues (mags). The double-column mag guns all proved slightly too large and/or heavy (especially the P13/45) to effectively conceal when no printing was allowed. I currently have the Shields, they seem to be a good balance between size and capacity. I find myself carrying the .45 more than the 9mm.

This is my primary cary gun. G43 with +2's. In the winter I do carry my G19 but it gets heavy.

I carry a Sig P226 with TLR-1 at work.
Right now, I carry a G23 with TLR-1, but that will change to a G19 with the same light and possibly a red dot with an upcoming 9mm transition, the rest of the time. For holsters I use either Safariland or DSG.

Totally agree with this.

Favorite is a Springfield EMP, but feel it is too expensive for “everyday” carry.
I carry a S&W Shield 2.0 most of the time. Handles well, accurate, and a trigger as good as a Glock. But less than half the price of a Glock (under $300). No worries if it gets scratched or marked.

G23. 13 rounds of .40 goodness in the mid size package. With the right holster, I forget its even there.

Sometimes a 1911 full size Kimber.

Depends on what mood I'm in at that time.
My favorite it a Sig 226 Legion in 35 Sig, but it's kinda bulky. I have various and sundried 1911's I carry sometimes, everything from a compact Kimber to a full size Colt in 38 Super (awesome round BTW). Have a few wheel guns, but I rarely carry them. I do have a few plastic guns, GLocks, XDM, etc, but I really prefer carrying the all steel stuff.

I've carried them all from little Ketec 32's and 380's to commander sized high end 1911's and all the Glocks, Springfields, S&W's (wheel guns and M&P's) The only one for me anymore is the P365. Just my opinion but it fits me like a glove shoots laser straight and brings a full frame size load of medicine. And it conceals nicely in my pocket.

Springfield XDS 40 with belt and holster from Tucker Gunleather, most comfortable combination I have outside of a Kimber micro 9 in the pocket.

1- Glock 19
2- Colt 1911
3- Sig 238
4- Sig 239
5- Kimber micro 9mm
6- M&P shield 2.0 9mm with thumb safety

I love my Glock but have found the M&P to be my favorite CC pistol as I run a iwb holster. If I were to open carry, I’d be more inclined to carry the G19 though.

1. Glock 27 was just a little to bulky
2. Ruger LCP is perfect, easy to carry and fits perfect in my hand.
