    90% of the time, a M642 in my pocket. 5% of the time, either a NAA Black Widow .22 WMR in my pocket (when I'm in a REALLY safe environment) or a Kimber .45 Ultra CDP on my hip.

    S&W 624 44 Special.

    Sometime a S&W 629 with 44 Specials.

    I now had a S&W M27 in 357 that I would like to carry.

    BUG is a S&W 642

    So I guess mainly revolvers.

    Well I do carry a Sig as my weak side gun when I carry a weak side. But right now my primary is a revolver. Once Spring gets here I'll likely be carrying a 1911 as my primary. I am still getting comfortable with the 1911 around the house.

    I wind up carrying a semiautomatic most of the time. My small revolvers just don't give me the same sense of security, unless I carry two. Since so many violent encounters have multiple assailants, since multiple handgun hits are often required to put down an assailant and since I can't reload a revolver particularly quickly, I just don't feel prepared with a small D- or J-framed revolver. My micro-Glocks are the same size and hold about twice as many rounds, and reload in a flash. They all hit with right about the same power, and the semiautos are probably easier to shoot quickly.

    I prefer the look and feel of a blued-steel D- or J-frame to the Glock, though. But as a tool . . . I use the Glocks a lot more.
