    What gun do you choose?

    The gun in my Avatar. The gun I EDC.

    I don't carry a mouse gun in my pocket.

    This situation I would not bet on that. If your mindset is that it will scare them you my very well end up dead.

    My EDC is a Glock 19 so that would be my choice. 16 rounds in the gun plus the spare mag(s) I carry. I use 19 round magazines as my spares and always carry at least 1 but sometimes 2 depending on where I'm going.

    Occasionally I carry a Glock 26 but that is as small of a pistol as I feel comfortable carrying. 11 rounds in the gun plus a 15 round reload. Not as many rounds but still a pretty decent number. I don't feel under gunned when carrying the 26 like a do with small pocket .380's.

    Scenarios involving multiple attackers are why I personally don't consider a 6/7 round .380 to be sufficient for a primary carry piece. They are great BUG's though.

    You made your choice of what you would use when you loaded up that morning not once you face the threat. That's a choice most make each morning as they carry many different makes and models. Myself I made my choice a long time ago, XD 9, if I make a choice in the morning it's what other one I carry. Mostly my J-frame in off side front pocket, but it could be a LCP. So I guess I do have a choice to make at the start of the fight. But I don't see it as something to worry about, just get it done if you are going to do it at all.

    Other than an inquiry as to what I carry on a given day, I'm not sure I understand the purpose of the question.

    Or did I know they were coming that day and therefore picked what I consider my hand fired nuclear weapon, the better to whack and stack?

    It's a little late at this point to be choosing a gun don't you think? How's that .32 in your pocket feeling now?

    Glock G26 with Crimson Trace laser in my pocket if there wasn't a way around a gunfight.Realistically I'd probably through my wallet on the ground towards them,that way they wouldn't discover my gun.

    Pocket rocket GO!!! Id pull the P22 thats always in my pocket and fire in bursts of two until i downed the perps or my rear bumped the handle of the emergency exit and then im gone. Say what you want about it, i treat my little pocket rocket right, load her with the best performing ammo, keep her spotless and shiny and train daily with the load i carry. Not that i should have to make a pre-emptive strike about my choice of BUG and sometimes primary carry, but...

    You train daily with carry ammo? More money than I have. I train almost everyday but with handloads or cheap walmart deals.

    So-called "carry ammo" can't be that expensive for a P22

    not to change subjects here....why do you spend the money on carry ammo for range time? You already know what carry ammo your gun likes so don't worry about it and go cheap on ttraining ammo...my 2 cents

    I've started adjusting my carry system based on who I'm with, not so much where I'm going.

    By myself I would have a greater chance of getting out of there, but whenever I'm with my kids I've been carrying an extra mag in a belt pouch (10 in the CZ rami, 16 in the spare mag)...

    $6.57 for a box of 50 is a lot when youre unemployed. But i can hit the target without the aid of a red dot, which you obviously cannot because your every day carry gun is sporting one. Learn to use the sights.
