You forgot the .357SIG
This is a discussion on Poll: If you carry a handgun, what caliber is it? within the Defensive Carry Guns forums, part of the Defensive Carry Discussions category; In the spirit of the monster "sticky" thread asking what everyone carries , let's see if we can squeeze some numbers out of this. Question: ...
.38 (.380, .38spl)
.40 (.40, .400 CB)
In the spirit of the monster "sticky" thread asking what everyone carries, let's see if we can squeeze some numbers out of this.
Question: If you carry a handgun, what caliber is it? Feel free to check as many boxes as you carry, if you carry more than one type regularly.
(Note: For space considerations, some calibers grouped into families.)
You forgot the .357SIG

Nope. The ".357" family is intended to cover the .357 ... I merely mentioned only "magnum" instead of all variants, as I did with the .400 Corbon, for example. If you carry "other", pick that. Go with the flow.Originally Posted by p8riot
45 acp, 10mm,357mag,9mm you forgot to add 41 mag
45 or 10mm the majority of the time. If I'm in a pocket carry situation .38 or .357
I find that the 9mm with modern defensive ammo gives me the balance between power and controllability that a defensive weapon should have.
The key to defensive shooting is shot placement and the ability to do it consistently, not bullet size.
Yes, I ignored that one. In all instances where your specific flavor or variant is not listed explicitly: please select "other". That's why it's there.Originally Posted by TonySoprano
Call me crazy, but I just love .40 cal. I carried .45 for many years, but no that I am older, and carry fulltime concealed, .40 S&W makes me a happy camper.

Depending on what I am wearing, I switch between a 9 or 45. They both conceal differently.
9mm for primary and main BUG but had to add .22 because of NAA .22 mag being usually a ''mini-mouse-bug''

45acp for many,..many,....many.. (did I mention MANY)..years.
As of a few weeks ago;
Rohrbaugh (9mm) R9s and a Seecamp (.32 auto) LWS32. Soon I'll also add/carry a Seecamp (.380 auto) LWS380.
On a side note, I really don't consider my R9s as my "primary" CCW and I don't consider my LWS32 a "BUG".
I do, however, consider them both to be a great advantage!!

What we've got here is failure to communicate.
9mm here.(Glock 19)
I prefer .45, but can't make up my mind on a carry piece.
Love the 1911, but don't feel comfortable carrying cocked & locked, guess I'm just not use to it.
45acp and 10mm. Those are the only two I will ever carry.
07/02 FFL/SOT since 2006
Probably the only home based FFL that doesn't do transfers.
I carry revolvers a lot. No mention of two popular revolver calibers, 44 Special and 44 Magnum.
I also carry 38 Special, but never carry 380.
Might want to look at the criteria you used.
Keep the shotgun handy!!
