    My duty gun is a 9mm and my BUG is a .380 so I carry them most of the time. Occasionally a .357 Sig makes it way out of the safe or a 45ACP.
    If we treat every gun as if it was loaded, then why not treat every individual as if they are armed.

    Primarily .45.

    Car gun is a 9mm on some days, .45 on others. Right around a 50/50 split.

    .38 special as a BUG on rare occasions. Primary carry on even more rare occasions.

    I only voted for the .45 as its the only one I carry on a regular basis.

    .40 is catching up! This reminds me of the '92 election when Perot split the conservative vote. Go .45!!!

    Interesting numbers, so far. 45cal is in the lead. Guess we could say we got a bunch o' big 'holes 'round here.
