    No doubt about it, Glock 23. Simple, reliable, effective. Not too big, not too small. Most police departments carry .40's now, ammo is just as available as 9mm. Parts are dirt cheap, almost every gun shop has Glock parts, repair is quick and easy.

    WOW....concealed carry gun is the question...only one....nope can't.
    kimber ultra carry....most carried, most comfortable with
    642....ideal for carry, reliable...but only 5 rounds of .38 hard to reload
    XD9 or XD45 service....very reliable, lots of rounds, available ammo....great shtf firearm, or long term bad day firearm

    but since it is concealed carry as the criteria....I must say the 642..
    can carry in any weather, easy to conceal, most reliable, can be with you no matter what.

    I've made this choice already. I carry the G19 daily.

    Right now, it would be my Glock 19. My carry gun has changed quite a bit, but the G19 is by far the best one I've had.

    Preferably a 1911, if in real trouble anything I can get my hands on that will save my bacon is good enough for me.

    I think I would pick a polymer frame .40 caliber with magazine size of at least 10 rounds. I'd probably go with my H&K USP 40 compact:
