Can't take the shotgun this weekend, since I haven't found a decent low-pro case. Instead I'll have a S&W 4" Model 65. I have 56 rounds of .357 158gr JSP along. That plus my XD9 for class and I'm well set.
"It is your evil that will be sought by us. With every breath we will hunt them down. Each day we will spill their blood, until it rains down from the skies. Do not kill. Do not rape. Do not steal. These are principles that every man from every faith can embrace." -McManus twins Boondock Saints
On longer trips (road trips, for example), I always have my Kimber Custom TLE II along for the ride.
Nothing unreal exists
I have carried a Colt Python or a 5" 1911. But the usual are smaller: Colt Detective or Colt Cobra .38 - or a Glock 36 (single stack .45 acp). Just easier.

Took my RRA LAR-15 rifle yesterday morning with me for some plinking at the outdoor range in Pungo. Even had it slunged across my body while wearing my magazine vest during my range session there. Other than that, it remains at home.
I routinely carry either a Sig P220 or P226. Depending on the prevailing winds and where we are going you might find an AR carbine with a couple of spare magazines stashed in the truck.

Use to carry the 5906tsw everywhere. Became not practical due to size and concealability. Picked up its little sister last year, 3913tsw and this little piece has been a change of life. Carry IWB, take on ALL trips so long as there is reciprocity with PA. 15 rounds total. 8 in the pistol and one spare mag with 7. Use Remington Golden Sabers for PP. I have come to the conclusion that this is my best option for travel. Just enough for any circumstance I may encounter.

4" 1911 is EDC and a 5" 1911 is in the vehicle - always, regardless of destination or distance.

A SW 442 with extra speed loaders. Or if getting close to city GL 23 in a Miami Classic rig. Out in the boonies GL 21, extra mags in a Uncle Mikes Vertical shoulder holster. Or for trout fishing a Taurus 415 in a Kramer cross draw under my fishing vest. And always a 22 mag or .380 for added insurance.
I carried a 4" XD .357 for a while. It is doable, but now I'm carrying a PPS 9mm with a couple of back up mags and find that to be more comfortable. I'm 5'7" so a bigger gun is considerably harder to conceal.
As soon as I can I will be buying a Glock 32, and my lovely wife will carry the walther.
I have taller friends who cc full size glocks. They are over 6'. Holster is everything.
The #1 tactical mistake is putting yourself in a situation that requires you to use your weapon...
...but if the situation indeed presents itself,
