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.

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.
TSD gen4 g17 in a Dale Fricke Seraphim.
That looks extremely uncomfortable.
that's what I originally thought, too. Just works for me.
Pick one or two
Glock: G22 .40 S&W and G23 .40 S&W Sig Sauer: P938 9mm Smith and Wesson: Model 437 .38 Spl, Model 65 357 Mag, and Sigma SW9VE 9mm
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.
