    At home, I would pick my XD .40 1st in an emergency without a doubt. However, I find myself carrying my Ruger LCR .357 Magnum almost 90% of the time. It is just more comfortable.

    May be why we have "survived" this long.

    (40+ years as a "wheel gunner" ( Mil., LEO, Civilian )

    Daily carry = either my SP101 or S&W 4" 66 (with a S&W air weight as a BUG)
    In the "brush" a 44 mag.

    I do own a custom 1911, but seldom carry.

    I carry a S&W 9mm most of the time, it would be my "primary", however, I think that both wheel guns and auto's are good. I did vote semi-auto as my first choice. Plus, the nine was the first pistol I purchased and owned. I'm kind of sentimental about it.

    I own and carry a Rossi .38spl a lot too. Why limit my carry piece to just one kind?

    I really want a SP101, but why? 5 .357 vs 13 9mm? Both are capable rounds that could do a decent punch... plus I got almost 3 times the ammo. neither is SP101 or MP9c are pocket carry so...

    I really want a SP101, but it has no use for me. bit more punch with 1/3 the ammo capacity. compare .357 to .40 if you desire. same punch with half the capacity

    I have both, a Beretta auto 9mm Px4 Storm and a Dan Wesson wheel 357 mag, most of the time I carry the 357 mag my thinking is I hope I never have to use either but if I do I want to be sure they are stopped real quick.

    I am in the same posistion. I have a J frame and a Glock 26. 90 % of the its the 26 but I have always wanted an SP101. I just can't justify.

    As much as I'd like to carry my full sized XD everywhere I go in every activity I participate in, I find that my 642 snubbie in a pocket holster works best for me 75% of the time. Daily carry load is 135gr +p Gold Dots in both cylinder and reloads. Practice, practice, practice.

    No doubt true. Although I've owned, carried and shot guns for well over 40 years I didn't actually own a semi auto until the mid 1990s. I'll now admit to sipping a bit of the Glock Kool aid and have been toting one now for a couple of months. My revolvers are always going to be the major part of my carry choice but I sure am liking that new Glock.

    Glock 19 but since I'm in shorts on the job I carry my charter Arms .38 undercover daily.
    Any other time I have my G19.

    I'm in Florida so my carry depends on temperature.

    Glock 23 when it's not sweltering hot.
    Taurus 740 SS for summer carry.
    Diamondback 380 when clothing precludes carrying the other two.
    Glock 23
    Ruger SP101 2.25"
    Taurus 740 Slim
    Diamondback DB380

    What a smart ass! (LOL). I'm 63 and carry a 1911 in various barrel lengths. I guess that means I'm not elderly yet!

    Most often I'd have to say the Semi, but a new Blackhawk- Speed Classic Holster for my 642 Airweight could be changing this arrangement.
