Kahr PM9 - easily concealable, accurate and reliable.
Several kinds of handguns. DAO 9mm autoloader (Kel-Tec P-11,) DAO S&W 632, SA autoloader FIE Titan (in .32 ACP) and many more. I carry the P-11 more than the others. If I KNOW it's going to get real "heavy" I'll reconfigure my shoulder holster to carry either my Glock Model 20, or my DW Razorback Serial Number #0084. (Both of these are chambered for the powerful 10mm Auto Pistol cartridge.)
Finally got rid of worthless LCP and got g26
S&W M&P 45, Colt Delta Elite Customized, M&P Shield, Glock 19
Glock 19 gen 2. Very solid so far. Searched for one for a long time.
...Make for a piece worth carrying!
I am very comfortable with my Sig P238.
Reliable and accurate makes up for slightly lesser punch.

My CZ82 (From the 1980's former soviet block police issues). Shoots a 9x18mm Makarov round. Loves steel ammo so it's cheap to shoot.
My favorite pistol I own. A Ruger MKIII Target Pistol with red dot sight. It's got the bull barrel and fiber optic fixed sights. This one isn't concealable really with the scope (or without hardly, and not my choice of carry caliber) I can easily hit a 5 inch circle at 75-100 yds with the red dot sight and even better when used with the pistol scope.
My Ruger P95. It's a 9mm Double single action with an open hammer in the rear. I love this pistol as well even though it's not anything too special. It just feels nice to shoot.
Picked this up for a steal second hand. Never been shot. it's a Ruger 6" 22lr/22mag. Probably not easy to conceal either. A great gun though.
Also just ordered me a bear gun. Its a taurus .44mag with 4" ported barrel. Thank goodness the run on ammo hasn't much affected the magnum revolvers.
And last but not least my favorite everyday gun!!! my Taurus 7 shot .357mag. Theres a bianchi holster in the picture thats an IWB type. It rides too high for me and I've resorted to a cheapy unclemikes IWB model. Much more comfortable. It's also got a Crimson Trace Grip on it. I keep .38 +p 110 grn hornady Critical Defense in it for carry.

I quit carrying small when OC passed. Now I carry a full size Glock 22 Gen4. Worked well on duty, works just as well off.

I carry a gen 4 G26 most of the time, however with heavier clothes on I sometimes carry a gen 4 G19.
S&W 2.5" 66, S&W 2.5" 686, and a S&W 2" 64......Just getting comfortable and waiting for leather from Mitch Rosen....Photos to follow.....Sandpiper
My EDC is a Ruger LCP with Innovative arms Night sight upgrade, Crimson Trace Laserguard, Buffalo Barnes 80gr+P solid copper HP's, and Impact Guns +1 mag extension with longer springs.
With lots of EDC wear and the rest of my EDC kit:
For serious business, i have a threaded barrel FN Five Seven with night sights and a Viridian C5L light/laser loaded with Elite S4M @2500+fps, and 18 30rd mags. :)
Either S & W 638 Bodyguard Airweight or my S & W .380 Bodyguard.
I rotate between (2) conceal carry handguns, Ruger LC9 and my Taurus 709 Slim.....I trust my life with either of these great defensive carry guns!!
Taurus: 709 Slim
Stoeger: Cougar 9mm
Smith & Wesson: M&P .22
