I suppose I'll be wearing the pinky extension until I feel as comfortable without it as I do with. Finally spring / summer is here and I can head out to the property with plenty of space & giant dirt stops to practice the full motion of draw to double tapping.
I carry a Beretta 1935 in 7.65 Browning in an ankle holster and an Uncle Mike's front pocket.
I also carry a locked breach Llama in .380 in an ASP armpit rig
Largest caliber I carry is a 2nd gen Glock 19 in an SOB
Fiocchi 7.65 fmj for the beretta
Geco .380 fmj for the Llama
Win Ranger 9mm+p+ jhp for the Glock
I carry a full size Beretta PX4 9mm in a Theis holster. Currently considering adding an LC9 also.
Glock 26 with extra mag IWB in a Galco Summer Comfort or an Old Faithful hybrid tuckable or a Remora. Sometimes a S&W 649 .38 Special snubby in a Remora. If I'm around water I will wear the Glock in a Galco Matrix so getting wet won't damage my rig.
I open carry a Ruger P95 with a 15 round magazine and an extra magazine. I conceal carry a SW 642.

Give me a minute before I post again.
My SIG SP2022 .40 is currently my primary CC sidearm but that may change since I bought a SIG P250SC in .40 this morning. When in revolver CC mode it's my SP101, .357 and I do have an OC holster for my GP100 .357 but I have only OC'd around the yard such as last week when I mowed my lawn for the first time this year (never know what might be lurking in my urban lawn :)
Four Rugers, three SIG Sauers; my SP101 3-1/16" .357 is shown in my avatar. I like reliability.

That looks extremely uncomfortable.
that's what I originally thought, too. Just works for me.

Mine has changed...sort of. I'm back to my trusty Glock 26 which I've had for nearly 12 yrs. BUG is usually my S&W 442 (Factory nickel plated pre-lock model) that I've carried as a BUG for the last 18 yrs or so. If I'm going somewhere local, like a short trip to the "stop & rob" etc, then it's my Kel-Tec P32. Depending on the needs of my work, I carry a Taurus PT709 SLIM (Yes, it's reliable & even shoots WWB ammo).
As to holsters, the Taurus is in a Desantis pocket holster (Which the Glock 26 can fit in, too) or a Hume JTSlide. The 26 has been riding in an OWB leather holster made for me by Doug (Of Shoemaker & Sons Leather) or in an UBG IWB holster (The one named after me )
The 442 used to ride only in a Renegade ankle holster, but nowadays, it's in a K.L. Null City Slicker shoulder holster or a Hume JTSlide. The P32 only rides in a leather pocket holster. I have no idea the maker, just that it has a snap on/off leather flap.
BTW, on the JTSlide holsters that I have, I've cut out the leather in front of the rear loop, so that my belt goes through both. It tucks the butt of the gun in tighter & rides better, IMHO.

I just got a Glock 26, so it will be my EDC. I had a Ruger LCR .357 but didn't like the recoil and I wasn't used to shooting a snubby. The Bersa Thunder .380 is fun, but with the 9 round magazine, a little large to pocket carry.
