    Ideally, I'd like to have my XD40 on me all the time, but practicality demands my 642 in the pocket. Therefore, I voted for .38, but note that it's .38+p.

    My main CCW caliber is .40 S&W but I'm thinking about switching all my CCW's to .45 ACP.

    9MM most days but have two .45's that I like to carry sometimes. One a 1911, and the other a sub compact.

    .45 most days, though I have been known to carry 9mm, .357 or a .380 backup

    Mine is 9mm,
    but I was going to suggest that .357 Sig was left out of the poll.

    My primary CCW carry is .40 but when I'm in wheelgun mode I carry .357 Magnum.
    Four Rugers, three SIG Sauers; my SP101 3-1/16" .357 is shown in my avatar. I like reliability.

    My primary carry is .380 due to how I dress and where I live. My back up carry is 9mm then .40 then, .357 or what I have at the moment.
