    Largest caliber - either .45 ACP or 10mm, depending on which you consider to be "larger".

    Size of handgun - I typically carry a full sized Glock - either a 20 or a 21.

    How - IWB, at about 12:00-1:00 depending on the pants.

    For concealed carry a 2¼" 357 Magnum snubby is my EDCG with a 38 Special as BUG. Primary is IWB & BUG is in left front pocket. When I am hiking in the woods of the Pacific Northwest I carry a 41 Remington® Magnum OWB @ 3o'clock. BUG is the 357 snubby.

    I have two 45s, a Kimber 1911 and a SIG 220 Elite. Both get hauled around in Sparks VMII holsters. Them's the biggest I own. They get carried now and then, but more often then not I carry a SIG 229 9mm or a Glock 19.

    This is just my opinion, but if you know how to run a gun fairly well, a 9 will get you home. With good ammo, pretty much whatever you pick will be worthy. Lots of guys carry j frames, five shots and that's it. And they will be just fine because they can run 'em.

    I will say that I have a bit more confidence in my shotguns, but they are a pain to hide, and therefore stay home.

    .45 Colt Government Model in an IWB holster. Carried perhaps 20% of the time.

    My wife and I just returned from a walk though and, rather than the Government Model, I'm toting a Colt Detective Special which I'll leave holstered in a pocket while I go out to trim some shrubs.

    I often carry an HK 45C in a Phoenix Stronghold IWB holster, made by TT Gun Leather. Works well for me.

    Usually a Glock-36 in either an IWB or an OWB at about 4:00.
    Right now? My Ruger SP101 in an IWB at 4:00.

    The largest handgun most days is a Glock 23, but in the winter with a jacket I carry a Glock 20

    My largest would be my Glock 30, carried OWB in a Glock Sport/Combat holster.
    The more good folks carry guns, the fewer shots the crazies can get off.
