lately I carry a S&W sd9 9mm. Though it's a little larger than my Beretta Px4 compact 9, it rides a little more comfortably IWB. And I like bcoz it's not flashy or boisterous(except for the laser l) . Simple, effective, and reliable. It's Spartan

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.

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!

Dude I grew up two blocks north of Detroit. I've seen the worst this city has to offer. I've grown eyeballs in the back of my head living around here. These scumbags around here will jack you for the fillings in your teeth just for fun.
I grew up in the day when you defended yourself with your hands,not like a wimp or a thief who carried guns,people who carry guns have insecurity's
