This is a discussion on What do you carry? within the Defensive Carry Guns forums, part of the Defensive Carry Discussions category; My EDC stuff XD9 in Don Hume OWB S&W Knife S&W Delta Force flashlight extra mag wallet car keys Blackberry...
I carry either a Sig P230 (an old favorite of mine) in a K&D Dakota Defender, or my new Beretta PX 4 Storm (.40cal) in a Milt Sparks VM-2. These are loaded either with Corbon DPX or Silver Glasers. Also, just to be safe, I also carry a KelTec P3AT just for a little added security.
I'm looking forward to getting either K&D or Milt Sparks for my Kahr PM9 Covert soon too....
I am partial to Glock for a number of reasons, but recognize that there are many other fine handguns out there.
I typically carry a .45 ACP or 9mm, it just depends on the job requirements, i.e., size, weight, number of rounds needed, etc...
Evil triumphs when good people do nothing!
Train Hard, Fight Easy!
Glock 23 daily unless....
Taurus 85 Homeland Defender when I am feeling the wheelgun itch unless.....
Kel-Tec PF-9 (pocket carry) on the rare occasion that I go to church
and of course a minimum of 6 extra rounds located strategically on my person....
Walk softly and carry a big stick....but I find it hard to conceal a stick.
Ruger LCP (now) in the summer and Taurus PT-140 IWB when not wearing shorts or through the colder months.
Sig P229R .40 with Crimson Trace grips in a Galco Summer Comfort IWB or DeSantis OWB. Hope to get a .357 snubbie for a nightstand/secondary carry/trail gun soon.
I pack a Springfield Armory XD-9 Service Bi-Tone with Hornady TAP ammo in a Blackhawk OWB holster which is quickly removable from my belt if i am in a no-carry zone. I am not a big fan of the retention strap, but i am always dropping/loosing things, so better safe then sorry for me, I also OC a bit. I plan on getting a new one w/o a retention soon along with an IWB or some sort in the near future. but for now, this one fits the bill great for me.

I like to mix it up between these 3. It really depends on the weather and the clothing I am wearing.
Sometimes I even carry this one:
don't leave home w/o the king james, eh? "THE SWORD"

I carry a full size .357sig M&P (I do have a .40 barrel) in cooler weather and a M&P .357sig compact and 9mm compact for summer weather. I sometimes will carry a Kahr cw-9 or a ruger sp-101 in .357 magnum or a smith 642. My preference are the S&W semi's I carry all in IWB some alessi some galco some stoner holsters and for advanced classes or winter when wearing a coat I carry a F.I.S.T. OWB that is great.
