    .40 mostly, or 9mm.

    I am thinking of going back to the .45 if I get a new Glock. I've been debating over a G30SF or a G36.

    My CCW caliber is 9mm. XD, BHP or Kahr. Backup is a P32.

    I usually carry a .452 caliber revolver but sometimes I will carry a smaller .358. For automatics I'll carry a .451 or a .355 caliber.

    My carry gun is a Para P14.45 loaded with Winchester 230gr SXT's.

    I am very comfortable with this setup.

    I carry either my Glock 19 or my Kahr CW9 in 9mm. Sometimes I do carry a revolver when I am out in the woods somewhere, but 90% of the time I carry one of my 9mm pistols.
    God bless our troops!

    .40 for me, little but more punch than 9mm and little bit more capacity than .45. Seems like a good middle of the road caliber. I also like that they are all pretty much loaded to the max SAAMI specs. the most bang for your buck so to speak.

    9mm in the warmer months, .45 ACP in the colder months. Just picked up a .380 for use as a BUG or when I need maximum concealment.

    .45 in either Springfield 1911 or Glock 36. Very rarely .40s&w as a primary, but 40 as a backup(Glock 27) both on and off-duty.
