Footnote: This thread isn't about which brands are better, just what you use and why.

Time for CPL renewal again so Ive been at the range and doing some studying. My Concealed Daily Carry is usually the Glock 30 Gen 4-45 ACP pictured below. The last 4 months Ive switched back and forth to the Taurus PT 709 Slim -9mm also pictured. I use hollow points, always have.

Glock 30-Gen 4 45 ACP


Taurus PT 709 Slim-9mm

I had started 40 years back with a Ruger 38...moved to a Smith and Wesson 357 Magnum with 4" barrel. The Smith and Wesson 357 Magnum I carried for years and years, but it got to hurting my lower back day to day. Had a Colt Derringer 22-Magnum for awhile as well...and a Glock 19.

Once I got the sub compact auto Glock 30-45 ACP Colt....I was in love. But some years later, it too is heavy, though Im partial to "hand-cannons". Im switching between (45-9mm) depending on where Im at each day. I may stick with the 9mm for my daily carry except on occasion. I barely feel it on me...the slim design is a welcome change.

Curious to know what others have, carry daily and why. -Mysterioustranger

*P.S. The slim 9mm was originally for my bugout bag, but that's changing!

I carry nothing.
I'm lucky. I don't live in a place where I feel the need for a secret gun to pull on people, even though I work the liquor trade and have had a gun in my face several times (not here, of course).
I understand and respect the need for concealed carry, though.
You're some sort of crazy first responder. Im glad you have the firepower that you do, hope you never need to use it. As I'm sure you hope you never need to as well.

No permit required and it packs a wallop.

License to carry,puh-lease,the second amendment clearly says KEEP and BEAR arms.
No permit is necessary.

I don't carry everyday, just when I know il be in a bad neighborhood or maybe downtown after dark.

When I do I carry a Charles Daly 45 1911. It's a great gun imo but it's a bit large, I'm looking for something smaller that's easier to hide and small enough for my wife to carry as well.

Any recommendations?

I have the permit and a S&W shield 9mm.
I haven't carried in a long time though but do take it when I travel for vacation.

On my persons I just carry blades. There is usually at least two on my body, a long one in each car, and well, lets just say the home is an armory!

I was carrying a firearm daily in the past, but this city is so placated even in what are considered the more eyebrow raising neighborhoods, I never felt threatened enough to think about using it. I lost a fist fight while carrying. Realized for what I run into in this city, I really don't need to pull a firearm out. But now if I were in Miami, that'd be a different story. Color gangs still have a presence out there. Wrong t-shirt color could have you surrounded on certain streets. Id happily take a beating one on one, but if people surround me I Will be putting holes in people.

My go to before was a Taurus .357 Mag, 5 shooter. Kept a speed reload in my pocket (I typically wear cargo's). The bitch kicked let me tell you, and shed have ya deaf if you werent careful. I would prefer revolvers as a daily carry just for the peace of mind in the functionality of it. No FTF or FTE ever. Yea i know, that is not a problem if cleaning is religious and routine, but it typically aint so.

Check out Springfield XD .40 SW Sub Compact. Packs a similar punch, probably about half the physical burden. Now if your a big fella with yuuuuge hands, this may not work. Lord knows my hands are not even that big, but it felt too small for my fingers to grip comfortably.

My concealed carry is a model 27 glock, .40 cal with hollows, with an extended clip for the extra finger grip, and painted my sights, fits in my dang pocket lol

Glock 26 or a Glock 19. I don't carry every day necessarily though. Both compact enough that I can easily conceal on my skinny frame. Both work well in my Milt Sparks IWB holster.

That's never happened me.

Should I be sad about that?

It does not seem to hold up very well against bullets though ..
This head was in fact exploded with a 12 gauge shotgun on set, I think it was a Benelli. Director got frustrated with the bull# failures of the small charges that were supposed simulate this effect so he grabbed a shotgun, loaded it, told every to get back and start shooting, and then he pulled the trigger lol!
