Amt backup .45 acp older model 5.7 long 4.1 high 1.0 inch wide. in a Don Hume iwb with sweat guard. Yes you can hide a .45 with shorts and a tee shirt I'm 5' 10" 185 lbs

I switch between a Colt 1911, a Glock 19, a P7M8 H&K, and a Browning HP for a primary carry gun. All are carried IWB in either Fist or Brommeland holsters with a mag pouch on the opposite side. My constant BUG is an old Kel Tec P32 weak side back pocket in a wallet holster made by the same local guy who makes all my belts. On rare occasions I will carry a revolver, open carry working at the gunshop, and I will use either an N frame S&W in 10mm or an old Model 15 or 19. All of these in Fist OWB pancake holsters with either one speedloader or two moon clips (for the 10mm) in a pouch.
My wife carries her Glock 26 most of the time in a Fist IWB worn kind of far forward, but not quite appendix carry. Spare mag occasionally on her weak side but most often in her purse (and at least it's not lost in her glove compartment). Sometimes she carries her nickle plated Colt series 70 1911 in a Brommeland IWB a little further back than the Glock. Her BUG is a Seecamp .25 in a wallet holster, sometimes in her weak side back pocket and sometimes in her purse (I'm trying...).
Try not to screw up so bad they name the screw up after you. (Station 15 saying)

100% SIG P238 .380, 100 gr. Buffalo Bore hardcast flatpoints. Will blow a 1/2" hole through anybody, including a car door.
I wear mine OWB; I hate IWB. Incidentally, keeping it in a pocket or some similar place might be convenient, but you'll get shot full of holes while you're fumbling and stumbling trying to get it out. Starting with my arms hanging straight down, I can draw and commence firing at the rate of 5 shots per second in less than 3/4 of a second, keep all the shots on a paper plate @ 8 feet. Add about 1/2 a second if it's under a shirt or jacket.
Most of my carry guns are semi autos with 4" to 5" barrels and usually .45 calibere.

80% of the time a H&K P2000 or H&K P2000sk both in .40 S&W. Carried in either a T&T Gunleather or H.B.E. IWB.
10% a S&W 1911 Commander sized roundbutt in a T&T Gunleather IWB or Kahr PM9 in Don Hume IWB /DeSantis pocket
10% a Sig P226 in a Maimi Classic Shoulder Holster usually for long trips in the car or thoughts of Mike Hammer.

My G26 is my most comfortable carry, especially if I'm going to be driving or sitting a lot. My second-tier choices are a G30 and a commander or CCO 1911--very comforting to have a weapon loaded with those big old 230 gr. HPs.

My ultimate carry gun, found this summer after a couple of decades of searching and trying, is the Walther PPS in .40. Perfect size-to-capacity ratio for me, flexible mag options and super flat profile make it my #1 gun (along with the crisp trigger, solid accuracy and reliability I've experienced). Next up is my BG 380, used for back-pocket quick trips and shorts weather.
Sig P239 in 9mm IWB 97% of the time. LCP about 3% of the time when deep cover is required.
My three main carry guns are Glock 36, tarus ultra light .38 and Ruger LCP. Go ahead and laugh, yes i often carry a little ole .380
Glock 23 IWB appedix carry w/ spare mag IWB at 3:00 (96% of the time)
