    Is your primary CCW a Revolver or Semi Auto?

    I've never done a poll before so forgive me if this isn't quite right.

    I'm looking for percentage of those whose primary (or most often carried) CCW is a Revolver or a Semi Auto handgun.

    I like my Semi Auto more but due to the way I dress I probably carry my revolver (in pocket) more often.

    This being my case I'd have to click on "Revolver".

    PS: If your job requires you carry I'm interested in what you carry "off duty" on your own time.

    I didn't vote, cause for me on duty, I have to carry an auto, but on my time it's generally a big bore revolver in the cooler months, and a smaller revolver in the hot months. I prefer a revolver.

    I put "semiauto," because my PF9 is my EDC at the moment. However, the more I shoot my wife's LCR, the more I think I may be tempted to go the wheelgun route.

    The only semi-auto's I'd trust with my life right now are a little too big for me to IWB carry. I prefer the S&W j-frame snubbies for their small size, reliability, concealibility. I plan to add a 3" j-frame 357 soon and perhaps a subcompact semi-auto such as a S&W CS9.

    1911 but have been known to carry either a Model 36 or Detective Special on occasion.

    Fortunate enough to have 3 rotations. G21 at 3 o'clock, G19 at 7 o'clock in a right handed holster. .45ACP, and 9mm
    S&W 4566 TSW at 3 o'clock, S&W CS9 at 7 o'clock (same holster as the G19. Fits perfect) .45ACP,and 9mm
    Sig P226 at 3 o'clock, Sig P229 at 7 o'clock ( left handed holster.). 9mm, and .357Sig/.40S&W

    All my secondary handguns ( at 7 o'clock ), are removed while driving, tucked between my console and the passenger seat, just a few inches from my strong hand. I use "Galco tuckable" I find it very easy to put on, and take off discreatly.


    Yeah, Yeah, I know........but I like my guns, and the safest place for them is on my person.

    Semi auto. I'm one of the oddballs here that always carries the same gun in the same place, every day - a G19 at 3:00 in a FIST #1A IWB holster.

    Vote anyway. I didn't specify but I meant if your an LEO or Security - vote for when off duty on your own time. I'm a Federal Cop & not counting duty time for myself either.
