    Compact frame here, as well. The sub-compacts are too short for me to feel confident holding it, and most of them are just as wide as a regular compact.

    Smith and Wesson 637.

    After I add it to my carry permit it will be a Colt LW Commander XSE.

    Glock 23 year round, but I just but a kahr CW40 so I am looking forward to that one as the weather gets warmer.
    I will support gun control when you can guarantee all guns are removed from this planet. That includes military and law enforcement. When you can accomplish that, then I will be the last person to lay down my gun. Then I will carry the weapon that replaces the gun.

    Voted subcompact. EDC is a G27, but recently tried a G17 and it couldnt be seen either, so may be a switch coming.

    I have two handguns, a Glock 17 and a Springfield 1911 government. I alternate between the two as my everyday carry.

    Compact Taurus PT140. Looking to get a Springer XD come summer time (still undecided on the 4" or 3" version), with possibly a J frame for a backup.

    Beretta 92 Brigadier OWB in Galco Fletch or Combat Master, IWB Galco Scout. I'm not a large man but the size of this gun presents no carry problems for me.

    I just downsized from a SW 357 Model 19 with 4" barrel - only fit/concealed well in a shoulder rig under a heavy jacket. I now carry a Ruger P94; many more carry options, but still considered full sized.
    Protect your family. Reload. Call 911.

    Alternating between 92FS and XD9 Service.

    Without dressing like an attorney or a slob, they are hard to conceal.

    Considering a PX4 sub-compact when available.
